Understanding the flow of packages, is it a fair comparison to say that 
moving forward:
Fedora packages could be considered alpha/beta releases of apps
Centos/Stream could be considered beta / Pre-release / Release 
candidates of packages / partially stable
RHEL official releases would be considered final release / stable

Where as before (done 12/2021)
Fedora Packages would be beta / pre-release
then RHEL and CentOS were final release / stable  - one with commercial 
support and the other with community only support.

Is that accurate?
