    Phoronix: Fedora Being Talked About For "Software Collections"

    To adjust the rate at which how fast software updates are forced onto users, some Fedora and Red Hat developers have made a "Software Collections" proposal.

            Well, I think that it is justified to include in Fedora IN ORDER TO include it in RHEL.
