I am not sure how hard it is to make a spin, but it seems like there it too
big of a gap between spins.
I know that things have been rough for a lot of people with the problems
with the Fedora site.
To me it seems like there should be another alpha type spin before beta.
My 2 cents,

Well, it's been an interesting couple of weeks to say the least.
We moved our freeze date to reflect the situation. The new freeze date
is Sept. 9, which is in 7 days. This is a friendly reminder that the
freeze is coming up, and coming up quickly.
I realize that rawhide has been less than great lately, and we're
working quite hard to fix the issues. The installer images from the
30th may be of use in getting rawhide installed and then updating to
what is in the public repos. See
(please only grab the installer images from there, not the entire tree)
