My number one pet peeve with how Fedora development works is that
there's no equivalent of the "testing" Debian release. It's one of the
things that I *really* think they get right, and we don't.

Personally, I'd bite the bullet and adopt an interim release methodology
so there's always a week-two week lag behind "known good" base platform
that can be used to do most package tests without worrying something
unrelated has broken today, or the whole thing won't install, or...

But that's just me ;-)

Jon.
