And you really shouldn't be using a Fedora release as a Major Development 
Platform.  That's not what Fedora is designed and meant to be.  That's a far 
better job for RHEL where you've got promised ABI/API stability, a very long 
lifespan, and a lot of effort to ensure things don't change with the updates.  
Fedora is a more free flowing tool for evaluating technology, where things 
can and do churn, change, and sometimes break.
