No.  Fedora releases (starting with RHL 9 actually) are stable
snapshots of current software.  That's it.

I thought this was made clear when Red Hat dropped the ".x" from RHL9.
If you will recall, there were bits of what went into RHL8.0
introduced in rawhide pre-RHL7.3, but they were pulled because Red Hat
wanted another "stable" release.  Because of that, a lot of us had to
wait for current software in the interest of stability and ABI
compatibility.  All that accomplished was putting off testing of new
features, which made RHL8.0 buggier than it should have been.

THIS IS NOT A NEW THING!  If it bothers you so much, use RHEL (or one
of the rebuilds) or fork off your own CL distribution based on Fedora.
Or, the RIGHT thing to do would be to start contributing to Fedora
Legacy (http://www.fedoralegacy.org/).  I'm sure they could use some
