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.

[updates-testing] would be the perfect place to first release the
X.Org 7.1 updates for FC5 and it might even get a few more people to
help test things there.  What exactly will happen to a user who has
nvidia or ATI drivers installed on FC5?  Will X.Org revert to the open
source drivers or simply crash?
