Yeah - the Fedora lifecycle does not end up being a good fit for us.
There is no clear (supported) path to go from a Fedora ("bleeding
edge") release to a LTS path with RHEL or CentOS.

Is there any hints as to how that could be improved? Understanding how
RH picks where to base RHEL would be a start...

On one hand we need the latest freshest code as we're driving quite a
few changes in the stack -- but we also need LTS.

(I don't mean to complain or flame -- the focus is on "lifecycle" in
the first para. Some things have been fantastic, including the
"beginning" of the lifecycle - IOWs how quickly Fedora picks upstream
