I would disagree about bleeding edge - Fedora tries to be current Which
is what people were asking for at the time and still do so: very loudly.
There were two distinct communities demanding exactly opposite things.
RHEL serves one of them (and thus Centos if you want bits not services),
Fedora is the other.

I'm actually suprised you've not moved to something like Centos Les as
people have suggested repeatedly that this would fit your needs better.

Rawhide is the testbed, and the -testing repositories. If you want a
bleeding edge software testing distribution take a look at Gentoo.
