All I can say is WOW.

None of this is new, in fact some of it is very old.  The life cycle of 
Fedora has not gotten any shorter in fact it is longer now than it was 
in the past.  I hate to sound rude, but I want to ask "What Brazilian 
cave have you been living in?"  There is now a one month overlap between 
every two releases this is more than we had before.

Remember this is open source software. If YOU want a longer 
support/patch/backport cycle YOU are more than welcome to offer such a 
thing. As a matter of fact if YOU would like to YOU could even turn it 
in to a multi-million dollar business.

There are many things to be frustrated about as an ambassador, you are 
not unique in being frustrated.  However if you had any part in SERPRO 
choosing Fedora you should not be frustrated you should be embarrassed.
