Respins aren't really that useful in this context.  We can easily choose what 
we want to install, and we can easily apply the updates either during or 
after install.  A respin won't help us in these manners.  What we don't like 
about Fedora is there is not really any attempt to keep a non abi changing 
platform, the updates are fast and loose, and the distribution releases get 
flushed quickly.

Fedora is great for short term or developmental servers, whereas RHEL/CentOS 
is far more suited for long term production environments.
