That's great thanks ... I'd be happy to test the builds and provide early
feedback on my laptop ... but as I can't risk it going boom I'm not able to
update it to F27 until further through the release schedule.
Having an F26 build of the upcoming kernel makes early testing simple though
FWIW, you can just download the F27 kernel, kernel-core,
kernel-modules (optionally extras), and 'sudo dnf install *rpm' in
that same download directory and it will install it without complaint.
I routinely run Fedora built n+1 (typically rawhide) kernels on
current release OS.
