Does the board have any target milestones from Release Engineering for
completion of this proposal?  If not, can we get some?  We've been
talking about this proposal in a lot of places, but without a specific
time line.

As always, my scheduling services (in a non-board member capacity) are
available and free of charge :)

The first target was by beta branch of F12.  That's why we rushed the
FAD.  However we just weren't able to hit that goal, so the new goal is
by the time we would branch Fedora 13.  I'm hoping to get a good list of
work needed doing at FUDCon, complete with some dates to go by.


I realize we missed our original goal of Fedora 12. As Fedora 13 is our new goal I was suggesting milestones (check in points) to make sure we stay on track and finish on time... like we've done with the more detailed schedules for each of the Fedora teams.

Why not identify the work that needs to be done *before* FUDCon and then use FUDCon to write the code and make it happen? There are at least 2.5 weeks between GA and FUDCon. I'll volunteer to help lead planning the meetings.

I'm just wondering if we'd get more "bang for our buck" if we used the live event to *do* the actual implementation instead of using it to talk about options, brainstorm, etc., a lot of which I thought happened at the FAD that created the original proposal.

By planning ahead for the Fedora Talk FAD last week I'd estimate we accomplished twice or three times as much as we would have otherwise. We made a lot of progress on the implementation because everyone was there and could talk about it in real time as they did the work and encountered problems. All without the interruptions of every day work/life.
