If possible, Jason, try and post your replies at the bottom of a thread,
to make it easier to read the discussion as it goes along.

I would like to make one suggestion -- let's not start the announcement
with a list of bugs.  Not necessarily putting our best foot forward!
The test2 release announcement is here:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-announce-list/2007-September/msg00002.html

I think that is more along the lines of what release engineers are
looking for.  It might make more sense to direct people to the
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bugs/F8Common page and track these bugs
there, so anything not fixed by F8 GA will already be in place on that
page.  That's the same namespacing we have used in previous releases.

Also, note we have this page for use in the final Fedora 8 release
announcement:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs/Drafts/ReleaseAnnouncements

It needs to be updated from F7 to F8.  Are you (or is anyone) interested
in taking charge of this page, updating the schedule for F8, mailing
other lists as appropriate to notify them of content, and generally
tracking the tasks listed on that page?
