Uh. F10. That's quite old. PA is very much in flux, I'd not suggest
users using old versions like that.

If you ask me, especially developers should live on the bleeding edge,
so if you don't want to go all the way to rawhide (what I'd
recommend), then at least make sure to run the latest released

I know that some peope think it is a good idea to run distros in
releases that are a year old or two, under the assumption they'd be
better tested and more stable. That assumption is wrong. They are
bitrotten and developers tend to fix bugs much more frequently in
newer software.
