    What niche does fedora fill in 2016? It's not a bleeding edge distro anymore when you compare it to things like Arch linux. It's not as stable as Debian, and not as user-friendly as Ubuntu.

    Sadly, we still have 10-20 articles ahead of us about this or that Fedora 24 milestone being or not being met. And another 10 articles of recap on F24.

    The release wasn't really 'delayed' two times before, we just changed the schedule. Early in the cycle the schedule is always a draft and subject to change. This is the first point where it's really a 'delay' from a firm schedule.

    There's actually a bunch of pretty big change happening this cycle, though it's happening quite quietly; the compose process is completely different for F24 from previous releases, it's the biggest change to the release engineering tools and process since the Core/Extras merge way back when. I was actually expecting this to go a lot *worse*, privately I was guessing we'd still be stuck trying to get composes working at this point, but in fact we have a nearly-releasable candidate, so it's pretty good.

    tessio you can always find the blocker list at http://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/current . There's one definite blocker in the current candidate (Cockpit isn't enabled out of the box on Server installs), and one we haven't decided yet whether it's a blocker or not for sure (it seems that sometimes you can't unlock a KDE session after it locks due to idle timeout).
