Considering all of the problems that FC 2 has been having, I wonder if 
Redhat would consider changing the published schedule so that a version of 
FC wouldn't EOL until the second-following version was released.  IOW, FC 
1 shouldn't EOL until FC 3 is released, and FC 2 shouldn't EOL until FC 4 
is released.  That might give folks more peace of mind, that they aren't 
forced to upgrade to a buggy release like FC 2.
