I agree with Jesse. We should keep to a more stable platform with fewer
updates for production servers. As far as eating our own dog food. I think
this is also necessary in order to ensure that we are familiar with the same
sort of problems that our users face. The happy medium here might be run
Fedora 7 in a virtual machine and have that available when we want to test a
feature/service for that OS, but ensure that domain 0 is run by RHEL/CentOS.
Just my 2 cents. :)
