Ack. It makes *mucH* more sense for use to keep in sync with fedora/rhel than
with Ubuntu. Especially Fedora tries out the very latest funky stuff, it is
often really worth the work to have a look what they're doing. At the end this
will help Ubuntu, too - if they manage to change their freeze time to an
appropriate date similar to the one of Debian.
