Items like this will always come up.  It seems the general feel is to 
move towards the most recent RHEL version.  Unfortunately RHEL doesn't 
always do what we want it to (which is why we also have production FC 

Its been an unspoken rule I guess to use RHEL when possible and to use 
Fedora when we need Fedora's features.  I have a feeling we'll always be 
running Fedora in production for our application servers, that's not a 
bad thing at all.  But as far as managing risk (which, at the end of the 
day, is what this is all about) we just have to be smart about the 
decisions we make.  Upgrading publictest4 isn't a problem at all.  But 
when Glezos's project is ready to be published to the world we'll have 
to make sure we either A) test our current FC6 boxes for an upgrade or 
B) Move all our FC6 stuff to RHEL and then start over with some F7 boxes.
