That's my understanding on where we want to go and I hope we make good
progress with this. FC1 has been very solid in my opinion. FC2 has kind
of rough corners with the big step to a 2.6 kernel and the starting point
to update many user level rpms plus really adding into a solid desktop.
Current FC3 looks nice to me, but I might be the wrong person to ask this.
(I tend to like all development trees.;-)

For your above comments: I'd wish system-config-packages plus some other
tools would be more connected and working better together. I am not
sure all that can be cleaned up within FC3 development timeframe. It's
a huge area to work on. The new repository support just going into
the Fedora development tree are again bits of this.
