Actually, the "no frozen rawhide" was very clear and this message
just boggles the mind.

Great, you made life of lazy developers easy. What about users of
Rawhide? I had Rawide installed on my main desktop since RHL 6.
What am I supposed to do now? What tree to run? Your proposal
has no guidelines for me (unlike the proposal to stop freezing
Rawhide, which IMHO had a lot of merit).

Note, I'm not interested in testing things "sometimes". If I did,
I would've been using RHEL WS or something. I want an always-useable
development tip tree.

The problem here is that Rawhide was a useful distribution for years.
We were Gentoo before Gentoo, minus meaningless recompiles. And now?
