OTOH there are some regressions you'll never see on a test box (network
logins anyone ?) - so rawhide should be kept dogfoodable so the annoying
bugs that take a long time to be fixed can be detected soon enough.

And yes that does mean the system will be hosed for ~ 1 day/month
(except right after the release freeze where you'd be mad to do a sync).
For some people that's a cheap price to have FC's work right after
release and not a month later.

IMHO the tester is right we've passed the post-FC3 phase where it's ok
to turn rawhide upside down and it's time to put it in a semi-testable
state (this is by no means a demand, just my own POW - if Raw Hide can't
be used before test releases it's little use for everyone, Red Hat
