Re: Announcing Fedora Core 4 test1 (fwd)

Sigh, why didn't they wait on GCC 4.0 for FC5?
Now FC4 is no longer CL4.2 but some in-between CL4 and CL5.
Unless, of course, Red Hat considers CL4.1 (FC3) to be stable enough 
(which is arguable).

Sigh, I guess I was just hoping with FC5 they'd return to a .0, .1, .2 
revision of FC major versions matched those that RHEL was based on.

If this is how Fedora Core is going to be released then I guess I can't 
trust the release model anymore since they've finally broken it.
Unless, again, they consider CL4.1 (FC3) to be the last, best revision 
of the CL4/EL4 series.
