Well the distro was tongue-in-cheek. ;)

Right, Fedora hasn't really done roadmaps for Fedora 20 yet since
Fedora 19 hasn't yet been released.

GNOME though has a roadmap: initial support this fall, full support
next spring. It comes down to how well GNOME 3.10 on Wayland works
because I don't think Fedora is afraid to beta-test new shiny. Fedora
does have one shortcut...they don't have to worry about support for
proprietary graphics drivers since those have never been officially
supported anyway.

It sounds like KDE will be ready for Wayland at the same time.
