I would rather target Fedora 30 which should be available 1 month before Fedora 28 EOL.
What do you think?
Our fedora support was (partially-?) broken for a rather long time now, but we
obviously hope to get soon again to a "fully-supported" state. Assuming we
we'll then have, IMHO, to have a clear and public policy about it. In the past,
we supported "every" version, and this obviously has costs. If we do not want
pay these costs, might as well officially declare that we support only
releases, and do not skip over the next odd-numbered version only if there is
a clear reason. If, OTOH, we do want to support every version (and even if not),
it might be worth it to enumerate the steps needed to add full support
for a next
version, and consider automating some/much/most of this.
That said, personally I use CSB on my laptop, so do not feel that strongly the
need to upgrade. I only used fedora on VMs. I do consider to change to fedora,
and might do this when I get my next laptop (in several months or so)...
(Also, I think such threads should be on some mailing list, devel@ or
