Why is that unfortunate? Fedora is more then a test bed for
RHEL/Centos, because problems found here are passed up the line. So
things that are found here, and fixed, do not show up in other
distributions. Somebody has to test new things. That is what Fedora
is for. If that is a problem for you, then you are using the wrong
tool. I don't remember seeing anything that says Fedora will provide
a stable system. I have seen advice about it not being suitable for
a production environment. If you insist on using hte wrong tool for
the job, then problem is not the tool!
