There be some dragons there definitely... unless you are into Fedora/Red
Hat jargon, you won't know what rawhide is and some people will
certainly think "that sounds cool".

The situation sucks and a lot of the discussion has focused around that,
which is reasonable, but doesn't get us to an answer to the critical
question for today.
   "Do we want to present rawhide as an install option for all users?"
I lean towards no just because of the problems its represents for an
unsuspecting user.  

Once we get through that (and getting F10 out :-), it would be good to
revisit the situation and try to figure out the five whys for how we got
here and put the relevant corrective measures into place.
