You are so right.. The time is right for an article in LJ trumpeting the
value of KRUD and how the utilities can be installed and used to keep a
system current.. It's pretty clear that Fedora is going to be a non-production
(READ: non-stable) release and someone needs to come in and fill that gap 
for all the users like me. Even the apt and yum repository maintainers 
haven't decided if they're going to keep going with errata, etc.

Why not ask esr to write an article about it..
