I'm not able to force anyone here to do anything. Therefore, I have toencourage good practice entirely via "carrots". This works best when we align with the academic year -- a release in the spring, current through the following summer to allow time for upgrades. Ideally, *two* years and asummer, but I understand that's not practical.As it is, what will happen is: whatever Fedora release is current as of June-July-August will get installed on people's systems, and, with goading, upgraded the next summer. If the actual Fedora release happens to be new in June-July, the 13-month plan will be great, but if the latest release wasfrom, say, January, that leaves a big hole in which systems *will* get broken into.
Every system needs an admin. I don't think it's realistic to not run 'yum update' for a year and expect everything to be fine. If you'd run Windows on those systems you'd have to run Windows Update once in a while. Now, I know Linux is less likely to get hacked very fast, but like I said: every system needs an admin. If systems don't have a proper admin, *then* they'll get hacked. This is not a Fedora- specific issue.
