I would suggest to consider at least one full rebuild [1] before the
final freeze (e.g. as part of the pre-freeze process) and of course to
allow for enough time between the freeze and the GA to shake out any
bugs that will surface by that process.
This is on FESCo's schedule to discuss after F7 was released.
Note that this has caused mass confusion as I thought it would. It is not just about technical requirements.

The idea to use ".1" as disstag for devel (discusses weeks ago) still
stands.

The idea in short: x.1 is higher then x.fc7 and avoid the confusion if a
package doesn't get rebuild during a devel cycle; and if there later is
a update after releases x simply gets increased -- so there would no
need to got for "x.2".

I can outline the idea further if anybody is interested.

This is trying to work around a perceived problem by inventing a new problem.

I've seen bugs filed on packagers for not using the disttag before. We should not encourage disttag everywhere, only where it makes sense. If packages don't get updated once between releases, maybe the disttag is not useful for that package and it's usage ought to be _dis_couraged in this situation.
