At last, we get to the real problem - You want to develop for the
next release of RHEL, but Fedora is changing to fast for you to be
able use Fedora for that. So you want Fedora development to change
to allow you to do that. Otherwise it is too much work to develop
your project. It must not be a user-space application, because there
you find things like compat libraries.
