Please make corrections and clarifications to the wiki page.

== Preview Release (aka PR) Status ==
 * Not ready--scheduled for availability on 2008-04-11
 * Problems with yum and other compose tools
* Snafu with package signing which caused rawhide to revert back to all unsigned copies of most packages--100G worth of churn
 * Spend rest of today untangling rawhide situation
* Attempt Preview Release on 2008-04-15 with no change to GA date of 2008-04-29

== Mass Branching ==
* Toshio says that the tools (pkgdb, etc..) are ready for the mass branching. * should probably have a CVS outage to get the branching done--usually takes a full work day
 * Discusison left unfinished

== What is the Preview Release? ==
* "just another snapshot" or equivalent to Alpha and Beta which requires more formal testing before release?
 * discussion about confusion over what preview release is
* Need clearer definition for what ''Preview Release'' and ''Release Candidate'' mean
 * DECISIONS:
1. Poelcat to take a shot at documenting purpose and criteria for snapshots and test releases 1. Preview Release will be as installable and functional as other test releases (Alpha and Beta) * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA/TestResults/Fedora9Install/PreviewRelease
