    Rawhide is a package repository which contains the latest
    development versions of packages which will eventually be included
    in Fedora. These latest versions are sometimes called "bleeding
    edge" package
    since they often include new and untested technology. You should
    consider the Rawhide repository "unstable," since any Rawhide
    package /might/ be badly broken if the programmers are trying to
    add, change, or test features. If you want to develop programs for
    Fedora, you may want to install a system from Rawhide. If you only
    want to use a stable Fedora system, you should use the standard
    Fedora Core distribution instead."
