So, over to the experts who actually build Fedora. Does the idea have merit?

This has been discussed many time on the list, the problem is that you  
cant have it both ways, you cant have a LTS release with the latest and  
The only way a LTS release make sence is to freeze the code, test, test  
and test. And then backport security related fixes.
RHEL/Centos does this well and Fedora does  the latest and greatest part.

It is untrue. You can have a distribution which begins with the latest 
and greatest but is gradually stabilizing. You didn't read this proposal, 
did you? It has been retired, but you saw the discussions, don't you?


No, i did not read then proposal and i read just read some of the discussion, these kind of threads quickly turns into a long pissing contest and I loose interest.
IMO you have 2 nice choices in Fedora and Centos/RHEL and trying to put something in the middle is just wasting limited resources.
But it is just my opion, you have another one, that is you right :)
