You might want to Fedora keep that in the mix for a few reasons:

1) It is derived from the RedHat severn beta, so you'll be familiar with
the way it's put together.

2) With the yum updater, upgrading from 9 is a snap.

That being said, I will definitely be watching to see if the Fedora
release gets timely security patches etc. But Red Hat does provide
material support to the Fedora project (hosting, etc.) so I'm not quite
so willing to accuse Red Hat of blowing off the community entirely.
