I will be using RHEL 4 at work when it comes out, but for testing new

as me?  Or is it just that there aren't many RHEL beta testers?

We're with Ryan on this. We're really excited about RHEL4 because it
fixes the Kerberos/Active Directory bug (details at
<https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=114938> ). The
workarounds with RHEL3 are extremely awkward. I see no reason to test
FC3 for roles we're not going to use it for, so I'm concentrating on

I've got nothing against FC3, and our admins and developers are welcome
to use it or Gentoo or whatever on their own boxes, but we're not going
to install it on production machines.

I do wish this list were more active, and I've intended to send more of
my observations here but rarely get around to it. I'm guessing that things
will pick up (especially for Red Hat people?) after the FC3 release.

It is my understanding that RHEL4 is based on FC3 and that any bugs/patches/updates/whatever fixed in FC3 will make their way into RHEL4. Assuming this assumption is correct, would it not be a good idea to test with FC3 as well as RHEL4? Also, will it work the other way? Will fixes to RHEL4 make their way into FC3?

We are currently using RHEL3 on most of our production boxes and for certain applications (LDAP for one) the packages in RHEL3 are very outdated. We will probably wait till FC3 becomes final and make a decision then whether to upgrade or wait for RHEL4. Any opinions?
