Memorandum of Intent to Release a Distribution of Understanding
Things this email is about:
- Fedora 11 Preview release

Things this email is not about:
- If there are too many sliders on a volume control

- Tell everyone how to obtain the Preview Release
- Tell everyone how to file bug reports
- Occasional fun-loving snarkiness
This is the Fedora 11 Preview release, we're just a short time from
releasing the full shebang. Therefore we need the most testing we can
possibly get on this one. On the torrent sites you'll find live images for
http://torrent.fedoraproject.org and http://spins.fedoraproject.org
Everyone has been focused on fixing and closing their remaining bugs since
the Fedora 11 Beta Release. Please use Bugzilla
( http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_file_a_bug_report ) to report any
problems you find (after making sure that somebody else hasn't already
reported the issues). The Preview release notes which can be found at
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f11preview/ will help you
with any other details.
Thanks and happy testing!
I just pushed an update in F12's rawhide (devel branch) to rb_libtorrent
which bumps its soname from "libtorrent-rasterbar.so.2" to
I also made this update in the F-11 branch, but am leaving it in the
dist-f11-updates-candidate tag until all the necessary rebuilds are
complete. (I have filed ticket #1667 asking that the excellent rel-eng
folks to have it tagged into the buildroot override.)
This is merely a bug-fix release, so a simple rebuild should be
sufficient to work with this new version. However, should any problems
arise please don't hesitate to poke me incessantly. ;)
According to repoquery, the list of dependent packages (whose owners are
CC-ed on this message) is as follows:
Miro and Deluge also depend on rb_libtorrent, but only through the
Python interface (rb_libtorrent-python), so they should not need such a
Thanks, and Regards.

We've reached the final freeze, as well as mass branched. From this
point on, builds from F-11/ will go to dist-f11-updates-candidate and
builds from devel/ will go to dist-f12. dist-f11 itself is locked.
To request a freeze override, please use the Final Freeze
If you're closing bugs by doing builds, please ensure that those builds
get properly tagged for our final release.
To check the status of your particular build/package, you can look at
the contents of the 'dist-f11' tag in Koji. This is the tag for
rawhide, and what rawhide will compose from until F11 is done.
