The Fedora 8 schedule has been finalized by the Fedora Engineering
Steering Committee. Based on the schedule proposed by the board, FESCo
has made some slight changes to better accommodate the schedules of some
of our high-profile upstream projects. Highlights of the schedule are:
1 August 2007 -- Fedora 8 Test1 released
5 September 2007 -- Fedora 8 Test2 released
3 October 2007 -- Fedora 8 Test3 released
7 November 2007 -- Fedora 8 General Availability
As always, see http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/Schedule for the
full details including freeze dates, translation schedules, etc
So I posted a general announcement to fedora-announce-list, but it's
worth using our new fedora-devel-announce list to remind everyone that
FC5 is EOL'd on June 29th.
Jesse Keating is the guy to go to with any questions about how this will
happen from the dev perspective.

fedora-devel-announce list is now open. The goal of this list is to
make it easy for Fedora contributors to follow changes in that may be
pertinent to developers within the Fedora Project. This is intended to
be a LOW TRAFFIC announce-only list of development topics, so we hope
subscribers wont feel the need to filter it away from their Inbox.
Acceptable Types of Announcements
* Policy or process changes that affect developers.
* Infrastructure changes that affect developers.
* Tools changes that affect developers.
* Schedule changes
* Freeze reminders
Unacceptable Types of Announcements
* Periodic automated reports (violates the INFREQUENT rule)
* Anything else not mentioned above
Some List Details
* fedora-devel-announce is OPTIONAL for project contributors,
although highly recommended.
* In the future we will auto-subscribe new members who achieve
sponsored packager status to this list. They may choose to unsubscribe
* All announcements here will also be delivered to
fedora-devel-list. So if you follow fedora-devel-list religiously you
don't need to subscribe to fedora-devel-announce.
* Replies on fedora-devel-announce go to fedora-devel-list.
fedora-devel-list allows posting only to subscribed members. If you
want to post but are not subscribed, you must subscribe then turn off
mail delivery in the list's web interface.
