What it is actually called is fairly meaningless. Linus always call the
kernel pre stable releases as rc's. Fedora has included openoffice.org
2.0 "milestone" release, gaim 2.0 beta, dovecot beta etc in general
releases of Fedora before. Not to mention the gcc release from Red Hat
Linux days .
What really matters is how much testing that particular software got
externally and in a Fedora environment, upstream and developer
coordination etc. Sometimes alphas or betas or random cvs snapshots are
much more stable than the previously supposedly stable release and is
even recommended by upstream in some instances.
