Myself, Jeff Garzik, Richard Henderson, Phil "Bryce" Copeland and 
various people from DEC/COMPAQ/HP have been slowly making evil 
plans to work on an alpha port of the current distribution 
sometime soon.  We have no details as of yet, but once we are 
ready to start building and pushing packages we'll let people 
know here.  The intent is to make a Fedora/Alpha distribution.

That is all the detail I have for now.  When there is more 
information, we will announce it here.
