I'm the maintainer of this. I think its very much in a similar
category to gnome/kde. The only difference is there is some packages
still awaiting review, about 2 that are actually critical, but moblin
2 like gnome etc are still in there development phase so its a moving
target.
IMO, this feature should be scratched, because the packages in question
are of immature nature (... and of low packaging quality from my POV).

"Low packaging quality"? I certainly don't think so, given the amount of
time Peter spent on them, and the fact that they all seemed good enough
to pass review.
Yes, they somehow sneeked through reviews. This doesn't invalidate what I said. It only proves my impression of Fedora quality standards being low and about the quality of reviews.

As for the feature being scrapped, the goal of it is to package the
current sources of Moblin, which is what it's doing. If we removed all
the beta software from Fedora, we wouldn't have much left...
Well, ... yes, we have a lot of semifunctional stuff in Fedora, which should never have been released.

At least I am having the impression Fedora 11 has derailed more into a rawhide shapshot but an end-users suitable distro (which it once used to be). - But this is off-topic wrt. moblin.
