You're right that we generally only get the meat of the test cases and
so forth up about 48 hours in advance. However, the actual *schedule* of
events is fixed a lot earlier than that. The F11 schedule was here:


and most of the days were listed there weeks before they actually
happened. The F12 one is up now:


and will be getting populated starting pretty soon. So you do at least
have the opportunity to see what days are coming up in future, though
the test cases and live media may not be available yet.

We do announce them on Planet Fedora also. For a couple of test days in
the F11 cycle, we did wider announcements to general-interest sites, and
this was pretty successful; it's something we'll be doing for F12 too.
However, it's not appropriate for all test days (some are things that
are really specific to a Fedora audience, or even more selective than
that) - we have to pick ones that are both of interest to a general
audience, and that a general audience will be able to participate in
(i.e. can be tested from a live CD with general-purpose hardware).

Thanks for the thoughts!
