When something works right there's not much need to change it.  I still 
have an RH 7.3 box running that's had a couple of 4-year uptime spans 
(had to move it once).  And several Centos 3.x's.

I hope there's very little internet exposure on that box; even ssh has had
remote exploits since then!

Well, I love to make people laugh so I'll chime in here.

I do use Fedora for some hosting, and I'm very happy with it for that
purpose.  The reason I like it better is that the packages are more
up-to-date.  Not bleeding edge, but more current.  I'd rather let
Fedora manage my mediaWiki installation rather than deal with the
updates myself.

The trick is that you have to accept that you'll be reinstalling it in
a year.  With puppet and a little discipline, that's not a big deal.
Spin up a new VM, get things running, and switch over DNS.

I can't imagine such a practice. I use at home only on my desktop for the bleeding
edge support, but given the public approach to its model, its happened before that
people have pushed bad updates that broke things badly. Just one of many reasons...


I run Fedora on servers at home without any issues.

we are prolly going to have a public timeline and status tracking up in 
the next few days, so if anyone is looking to see what is going on that 
might be a good source as well.

You know you use Reddit too much when you look for an upvote button.

Yes, I am sorry. This is just for the editors I sent it to the wrong 
list. That happens when you send mails at 4 in the morning. I am really 
sorry. The official release will be tomorrow (I hope).

If you want to become a proofreader of the Newsletter tough, feel free 
to mail me and I can put you on the list.

Cheers Didi
