Fedora Rawhide Quickly Switching To Fedora 14

To eliminate having to freeze the bleeding-edge Fedora Rawhide repository once the next release of this free software Linux distribution enters its own alpha/feature freeze, a new development branch has been created so that Rawhide can immediately begin hosting packaged for the next Fedora release. In other words, beginning next week once the Fedora Alpha freeze goes into effect, Rawhide will begin receiving packages that will not appear until Fedora 14. The in-development Fedora 13 packages will move to a new development directory.

This change was announced as new paths for development and more information is available from the Wiki with the No Frozen Rawhide Proposal. The Fedora 13 Alpha freeze is occurring on Tuesday.
