So firefox-0.10.1-1.0PR1.20 shouldn't have been included with FC3?
What about thunderbird-0.8.0-9?

I'm not saying that FC should be just including ANY pre-release
software, but it has include some well tested pre-release software and I
for one applaud the inclusion of firefox and thunderbird in FC3 (instead
of having to wait for FC4).

Why can't OOo-2.x pre-release be included (given significant testing)
and then updated to 2.0 final after FC4 is released.  It's not like this
hasn't been done before.
