And now, the Fedora Project presents....

  We're tired, we're droopy
    We're all a little loopy
  A Fedora Core Test Release
    Is invading your PC!
  New features - interesting!
    The code could use some testing
  That's why we are requesting
    new bug reports quickly!
  On our ftp site is the place where you will see
  The stuff that we've been working on since 1993!
  We're tired, we're droopy
    We're all a little loopy
  It's a Fedora Core Test Release
    Come and join the fun!
  (And now our song is done.)
Yes, it's an update of SEVERN, the Fedora Core test release.

As always, test releases are not intended for use on production
environments. Use of test releases in production environments could
lead to disastrous results, such as spontaneous musical theatre
from your engineers. Be afraid.

Problems with SEVERN should be reported via bugzilla, at:


Please report bugs against 'Fedora Core', release 'test2'.

Technical note: There are some issues with the SMP kernel; on
 SMP machines after installation, you may need to boot the
 uniprocessor kernel for stability. We'll have a fixed kernel
 in the next day or three; please update as soon as one
 is available.

For more information on just what the Fedora Project and
Fedora Core is, please see:
