Robert, are you really done with your ranting? If not, go sit in the
corner and sulk some more.

Fedora Unity Project is a volunteer based work product. Like many such
groups they are understaffed. Be thankful that they are only a month
behind the latest release. You probably don't remember when their
respins were 3 or more months behind. Give the folks a break or even
better a hand.
