Thanks everyone for pulling this together.

Did Kerri say we have a "Fedora Team" author to choose from?  Or should
we have a Marketing Project members do the posting?  I think a few of us
have accounts to post to press.redhat.com.

Help Shape Fedora 9: Alpha Release Now Available
by Fedora Team

As Fedora (http://www.fedoraproject.org) contributors, one of the most exciting parts of the development process of new Fedora distributions is determining which cool, new features will be included in the next

included in this release, and with the Fedora 9 Alpha release today, it's time for the whole community's input.
                                   ... input. Obtain your Alpha live
spin at http://fedoraproject.org/get-prerelease.

During each Fedora cycle, there is an Alpha release, a Beta release and
release, and
a series of weekly snapshot releases. (http://poelstra.fedorapeople.org/schedules/f-9/f-9-releng-tasks.html)
The Alpha release gives everyone the opportunity to provide feedback on the work that has been done so far as the first step in the testing cycle. It's the first time that the larger Fedora community can get really involved in testing out the new features and is encouraged to provide input on what's working, and what's not. It's easy to gain access to the Alpha release because you don't have to install any software -- everything you need is provided through live CDs. Then, to give us feedback, you can file bug reports and enhancement requests and make other recommendations.

If you want to help us test and shape the next release of Fedora, you can find details about the new features we're exploring, about how to get involved in the Alpha release and about how to provide feedback and
                            release, and
get involved in the process by visiting our Fedora 9 Alpha release
involved with Fedora by visiting
notes. (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/9/Alpha/ReleaseNotes)
