Re: Handling Updates...

The question :: If I'm going to update, how can I freeze on one

We use kickstart already, so updates can be scripted easily enough but
I would imagine that Glibc/gcc and other updates should occur at the
same time as the kernel - What's the proper way to stop this from
being a moving target?  Do I just download everything today and hope
it's a good freeze point while scripting it into our kickstart files?

Anyone here solved this problem before?

You want fedora to not be a moving target? I don't think that's practical on a distribution with a goal of 'rapid progress': http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Overview

Perhaps you should look at one of the 'Enterprise' distos instead, like RHEL or a free clone like Centos. Even with those you can expect several updates over the course of a year although they almost never change expected behavior.
