RE: Fedora 10 Beta Freeze coming soon



I am not sure how hard it is to make a spin, but it seems like there it too
big of a gap between spins.
I know that things have been rough for a lot of people with the problems
with the Fedora site.
To me it seems like there should be another alpha type spin before beta.

My 2 cents,
Jerry Williams
