Everytime any version as been withheld as updates there have been
requests for it. So I assume they are. Kernel is one of top five
components getting the largest number of bug reports for a long time
simply because it is critical and covers a large amount of core aspects
of the system and all these updates fix a ton of them.

What is OpSys? Core development and testing is to be done within the
external community too and that needs to be much more than what is
present currently. Development pace within a project improves when the
line between end users and developers blurs.

What is SDLC?

Not necessarily all the best of breed components but what fits into RHEL
product space. RHEL is open source too. So its Free in that aspect

Branches off into RHEL and then Red Hat starts maintaining it as a
product.

If you got any specific questions, let me know especially if that
understanding is relevant to Fedora.
