One of the key parts of making a decision to delay/skip F31 is
figuring out, ahead of the decision, what the expected experience is
for users and packagers. Does F30 have normal stability, or do we try
to keep users happy by moving things forward with ad-hoc updates and
cross-our-fingers and hope nothing breaks?
I tend to think about this in terms of GNOME - would we rebase to
GNOME 3.34 in the middle of F30 or not? But there's a lot of other
pieces of software where similar considerations apply: container
tools, cockpit, NetworkManager, etc.
And if we did do updates like that, would we consider respinning media
and making a "F30.1"?
That would defeat a very large chunk of the purpose of delaying the
release, as it'd require pretty much a full cycle of work from all the
folks involved in releases. Maybe it'd theoretically involve *slightly*
less firefighting, but we'd still have to jump through all the hoops of
release candidates and blocker review and mirror syncing and all that
