its called QA, you can't just shove the latest version of everything into packages and shove it out and call it a RHEL beta
Good in theory, but in practice this isn't always the case. OpenOffice 3.2 contains fixes for bugs present in 3.1. So in effect RHEL 6 beta, after the "QA", is actually shipping a more buggy version of OpenOffice than what is currently available (and will be present in F13).
Similar reasoning applies to KDE 4.3 and Gnome 2.28, all of which have been superseded by less buggy versions.
