As a systems administrator, you generally worry about two things. First, the security of the systems you support. Second, that the applications you run work as designed. You would like to do those two things with as little effort as possible, however, you want to be aware of and balance the risk inherent in meeting those goals.
Enter Fedora. Fedora curates the libraries and applications that are available to install on your local system(s). Fedora makes the promise that as soon as possible after the release of a patch or a new version of a library or an application it will make it available to you as a system administrator. However it does this by ensuring the sanctity of individual libraries. Effort is also made to ensure that dependent applications are also verified which consume that library.
