Re: Stability and Release Cycles - An Idea

It is only offtopic if fedora is never intended to be used by people

"Move work" != "move all the distribution"

I've moved work from Fedora to CentOS, even from rawhide Fedora to
next-to-last CentOS, no big problem really.

So you weren't actually using any of the features that differentiate fedora?

Moving our servers from Fedora to CentOS required reinstall from scratch,
and porting some data from backups. Did take a lot of work, but was done
once.

Once = once per user.  A lot of work for every user.

If you need stability, go for RHEL or CentOS + EPEL. If you want a
technology preview, go for Fedora (even rawhide). If you need both at the
same time on the same machine...

Not both at the same time. A development cycle where the community input during development results in features that end up being usable.
