No, Fedora became what people made it.

My impression is, Fedora once had been a nice "leading edge distro",
now it's essentially a public testing ground, containing the "beyond
bleeding edge".

I am using Fedora every day, ever since Fedora exists.

Wrong, I want Fedora to get back on track, to where it once used to be:

A distro, which was suitable for everyday end-user use and not one, in
which many key component packages are simply "too immature".

What do you want me to do? To get involved into SELinux, NetworkManager,
PulseAudio, gnome-session, evolution, ... just to mention a few of the
packages which I consider to be prematurely integrated into Fedora?
