How are Fedora users being used as alpha/beta testers of the code that does not exist in Fedora (i.e. enterprise features that are added only to RHEL behind closed doors)? Or more specifically, how am I right now testing RHEL7 code that is not in my F-17 installation? I would really like to know by what magic this can be true.
Answer: I'm testing it, because it _has_ been added to Fedora.
