Only marginally.

How does master fit into this picture, and when do we create the
f13-branch?  From your description above, it sounds like we'd be
creating f13-branch very early on and doing development on that.

I'd like to firm all this stuff up (including being able to tie phrases
like "decide to tighten up for the beta" to a point in the Fedora
schedule), perhaps describe some rules for what gets committed where,
document it on a wiki page, and then blast through this backlog of crud
that we've got accumulating here.
