1) Distinguish tags and build targets. Make the names unique.
Why is a build target named dist-f8 and also a tag dist-f8?
This also results in strange koji status information.

2) Let all tags start with f7, f8 and so on. Why not give tags the name
"f8-devel" or "f8-final"? What is the purpose of the "dist-" prefix on
only *some* tags?

3) During the freeze, call the rawhide build report "F8 Test 1 build
report". Create a separate build report for all other builds against
dist-f8.


Concerning the "Frozen for Fedora 8 Test1" message and the Wiki pages,
it is difficult to spot the really relevant details. Short step-by-step
details and instructions relevant to packagers.

F8 Test 1 freeze means: What we see in daily Rawhide is Test 1
work-in-progress until the freeze is over. Ordinary "make build" builds
don't enter this Rawhide unless rel-eng is mailed to tag the builds
"f8-test1". When the freeze is over, Rawhide switches back to
normal f8-devel (currently "dist-f8"), including f8-test1 builds.
