Then you haven't heard many of the responses either.  There is no need
for breakage if the 3rd party repos manage things properly.

Again, this would put the release schedule of Fedora software in the
hands of a proprietary vendor.  This just can't be the way to go.

But by and large that isn't the attitude at all.  The attitude is that
the 3rd party repos should do the work to make sure that their users
expierence is acceptable.  They have all the tools they need to ensure
this.  Putting the onus on Fedora developers is just backwards.
