I actually think this makes the Fedora developers look good. They are releasing when ready rather than being slaves to an arbitrary release date. I think a lot of Ubuntu's issues could be solved by adopting the sort of procedures the Fedora developers are using. Do it right, don't do it fast if fast isn't right.

One of the blockers is a new update mechanism. Fedora (and by extension RHEL) has always been very weak compared to Debian (and by extension the other way, Ubuntu) in terms of successfully performing an in-place upgrade from one release to another.

My own experience with Fedora upgrades was not successful (this was F13-to-14).

If they can get this upgrade system working, it'll will be a big step for Fedora now and RHEL later. It's a huge deal, and they need to get it right.
