Very hard to tell until upstream sets a freezepoint. It is usually based on 
whatever Fedora is current at that time. So it is probably a tossup between 9 
and 10 looking at the projected date of release.
I doubt that RedHat would release a real buggy enterprise version because they 
have to support it. But then in my opinion all Fedoras have been buggy in some 
way, usually because of the settling time for all the new stuff that gets 
dropped in.
