This is closely related to a marketing problem Fedora has - a lot of
people think it's a beta distribution. Probably one of Fedora's biggest
problems still.

Personally I think it would be interesting to see the CentOS project
merge with Fedora, to provide a Fedora "LTS" or whatever. Then all the
people that complain about Fedora's lack of stability would be told to
install a different Fedora product, instead of something from a totally
separate project.

I think it's obvious the demand for what CentOS provides is there, and
there's more than enough people willing to contribute to it.
