I see no reason not to continue incrementing the version number from
"Red Hat Linux" and just use 10.  Yes, there have been big changes with
changing the name to Fedora Linux and changing the development model
from a commerical product to a community project, but it isn't a totally
new distribution and the versioning shouldn't start from zero.
