I'd like to stay on top of gnome-shell releases. I just did a dnf upgrade and I'm at gnome-shell 3.16. It appears that 3.18 is current. Is there a way to have dnf upgrade gnome shell to the latest release, whatever that may be?

If you always want to have the newest stuff, you should consider a rolling-release distribution like Arch Linux or Gentoo.

I am not aware of any repo that provides Gnome 3.18 for Fedora 22. Why would someone do all the work for a product that is EOL in a few months time, and especially when upgrading to Fedora 23 (and Gnome 3.18) is so easy?

A certain Fedora release (like Fedora 22 in your case) will stick to one Gnome release (3.16 in your case). If you want to jump to the next Gnome release (3.18) you will have to upgrade to Fedora 23. Gnome 3.18 will not appear in the official software repositories of Fedora 22, so unless you want to upgrade to Fedora 23, there is no way to easily get Gnome 3.18 in F22.

You can upgrade to the latest stable release of Fedora (23 currently), that comes with latest stable release of Gnome (3.18).
