What is really missing yet is the stable/testing/unstable stucture. I don't 
know if there is chatting about this in the devel list, but I see it as the 
way yo give all users the oportunity to have very stable versions, or out of 
the oven (very new) ones.

In my case, I have RH9 with the last version of Gaim downloaded from Freshrpms 
becuase I need the new MSN protocol to work. If FC would have the three brach 
stucture, I could go and get the unstable (very new) version.
