Also, the comparison with Ubuntu stinks anyway. They had an earlier freeze
than we did. They were looking at an earlier version of the new
g-v-c. And the based their distro on PA 0.9.14, however the new g-v-c
is designed for 0.9.15 which was quite a big update.

After all, it's *we* who do the development. Both Bastien and I follow
the Fedora release cycle for our development. Since Ubuntu is not
doing any development in this area it is very likely that they'll
continue to be a few steps behind us unless they'd sync their releases
to the Fedora releases.

So all in all, comparing Ubuntu and Fedora here is comparing apples
and oranges.
