The Fedora 14 release development cycle is occurring at the same time that Red Hat is preparing its Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 product (RHEL) for release. Smith noted that despite the looming release of RHEL 6, there has been no impact on the Fedora 14 release. He added that RHEL is on its own track, separate from Fedora.

Smith noted that there "a lot of the people working on Fedora also work for Red Hat and have responsibilities for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. But they really are on two separate tracks," he added, "and Red Hat really does trust and expect the community to make Fedora the best it can be."

Overall the big challenge for Fedora 14 from Smith's perspective is making sure that enough people test the beta. The goal is to find and fix any problems before Fedora 14 becomes generally available.

"I think we're fairly good on the schedule so far -- we had a one week slip on the alpha release, but we need to remain vigilant to make sure we stay on target," Smith said. "We're scheduled right now to release in the first week November."
