is easy enough to just point out the major changes.

Say GNOME KDE and Kernel x.y. Important feature z etc.

I don't always know this information, and it's just as much of a pain in the ass for me to go looking for it as it is for you.

Which is why I said that individual developers need to be more proactive on passing on important upstream as well as Fedora specific changes. Any single person doing it is going to be painful.

Incorrect. Test1 serves as a somewhat stable starting point for fleshing out the features that are planned for the next release. Especially if we wind up doing hackfests just after Test1 continually. A lot of the features aren't really suitable for testing by anybody other than the developer, but they need something they can install with their changes that actually installs rather than the more often than not broken rawhide repo at this stage. Test1 provides them a platform to put their package on and continue to develop it. Often times the feature isn't baked enough so that anybody else looking at it would do any good.

I think we are aiming at a different audience for each of the test releases. We need to agree on and pass on that to the wider folks involved.
