I've gotten some great feedback regarding, so now I know that Fedora supports through community volunteer support, only the current version of Fedora and that will change every 13 months.

That does lead to a question: If we should use RHEL for distribution and Fedora for development, which version of RHEL is most like Fedora 15? We're having issues porting right now.

From the following page:

Is this quote about the current version of RHEL 6:

"Codename: Santiago (based on a mix of Fedora 12, Fedora 13, and several modifications)"

So it would seem that the soonest you would see hints of F15 would be possibly in the unreleased RHEL 7.

There is no Red Hat Enterprise Linux that is close to Fedora 15. If you want to develop a product that is going to be deployed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you might just want to use that or a rebuild as suitable for you.

Both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Fedora supports more than one release at a time. The Fedora release lifecycle and Red Hat Enterprise Linux release cycle pages have the details.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux page has the history of Fedora releases that Red Hat Enterprise Linux is derived from.

Red Hat has announced that the next release with be out in 2013 and judging by the history of releases may be derived from Fedora 18 with updates but we wouldn't know for sure ahead of time.
