Linux kernel development model is pretty unique and very distributed. It can't be readily compare to any other project. There are several different parallel branches - linux-mm, linux-next, linux-staging etc that feeds into the Linus branch. New releases come out every 3 months or so. There is a initial week merge period followed by a stabilization period. Even with the short release cycle, the number of patches is exceptionally high. The nature of development for distributions is primarily to act as a integration point for upstream projects. I doubt it will work well for Fedora.
