I doubt lam users are on this list: lam users are certainly users who 
favor stability over change, and are likely not to be that much interested
in fedora, and even less in fedora development. 

If I still used fedora, I would have liked to have lam kept in fedora, but 
I don't use fedora anymore. In the end it really depend how much you want
to keep/attract users interested in stability versus the cost of maintaining
software for those users given that fedora is unlikely to be in their 
distributions of choice.
