This is where i'm at right now. I swap between Debian and Fedora every couple of years. What amazes me is how good Fedora is when it appears (to me) to be so grossly mismanaged. I don't see how Rawhide can be remotely useful for "seeing how things work together" if no one is running it (i.e.; making those things work together). As recently as last year, the policy board mailing list was overrun with talk of mission statements. It's like watching Initech (Office Space) actually publishing great software.
I have a feeling that most good Free software is good in spite of how the project is run rather than because of it (for any given Free software project).
