Thanks Petr for your input. You seem to be the first one who
understands my concerns with "rebases" (as Fedora seems to call it)
in stable releases.
well, if you are referring to the kernel, thats kind of a special case:
and has a exception to the normal updates policy.
I really wish this topic wasn't as controversial as it appears to
Personall, I don't really care what Fedora's policy really is and I'm
fine following whatever it states. But the mere fact that it seems to
allow for interpretation to a point where it contradicts itself is not
only a bad sign, it most importantly for me makes it hard to follow.
I'm not sure I see the contradiction. The kernel has an exception here
(for all the reasons listed on the above wiki page)
