No, not exactly.  We will be cutting "Fedora Core 1" (or whatever numeric
we end up attaching), and at that time, the fedora-list will start to be a
discussion list for the first release, while the fedora-test-list will
continue to be a beta test list for new packages which come out.  Granted,
this will be a fuzzy line until the case where we have to branch for a "big
change."  The biggest one coming down the list will be the 2.6 kernel, and
at that time, the fedora-test list will be a place for discussion of those
integration efforts, while the fedora-list will continue blissfully with
the 2.4 kernel.  Once the 2.6-based distro is ready for primetime, we'll
release it and the fedora-list will start talking about the 2.6-based
