"Rawhide

   Rawhide is a package repository which contains the latest
   development versions of packages which will eventually be included
   in Fedora. These latest versions are sometimes called "bleeding
   edge" package
   <http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/jargon-buster/fedora-glossary.html#gl-jb-package>,
   since they often include new and untested technology. You should
   consider the Rawhide repository "unstable," since any Rawhide
   package /might/ be badly broken if the programmers are trying to
   add, change, or test features. If you want to develop programs for
   Fedora, you may want to install a system from Rawhide. If you only
   want to use a stable Fedora system, you should use the standard
   Fedora Core distribution instead."
