To death.

I'm sure it was
but can somebody point me any deep analysis which really proves that current one year lifetime and half-year release period is the best for Fedora?

Thank you in advance.

Serguei.

Here is a section of a post on Fedora Philosophy:

The Fedora project does not pretend to be *production server*
centric. It does not even pretend to be *production server*
friendly. The personality of the Fedora project is fast paced,
(b)leading edge, leaving the past behind quickly. It is a great
proving ground or test bed for current technologies. It is fun. It
will never have the stability or extended support that a server
class distribution does.

Translated, "rolling beta." In return for your access to the latest technology, you can expect cuts and bruises.

If you want a longer life, go look at other solutions.
