Not a testing ground for RedHat does't mean mean production only code.
You've misquoted someone to further your own goals.

If Fedora put out production only code, I would say that the entire
Linux community would suffer. Ubuntu aims to put out production only
code. As such, they do very little for the community except make
Ubuntu "cool". You'll see that there are a lot of bug reports on that
ksnyapics issue in Ubuntu -- which means that they too shipped
Ksnyaptics, which also points out that they dont' do dev work on the
software either.
