A little late , Fedora 23 Final Release Compose 2 (RC2) is now
available for testing. Please help us complete all the validation
This is rumor control, here are the facts: RC2 contains fixes for all
accepted blockers. However, there are several proposed blockers, at
least one of which is pretty likely to be accepted as a blocker at the
Go/No-Go meeting tomorrow. We don't want to pre-empt the meeting, but
talking with several QA folks, Matthew, releng, and GNOME devs on IRC

to happen is that at least one blocker will be accepted tomorrow and we
are thus likely to slip - we've agreed that we definitely don't want to
try and do some insane last-minute RC3 heroics, we want to make sure
things get built and tested properly and thoroughly.
Bearing that in mind, please, no-one kill yourself testing this:
there's no need for any all-night testing heroics! RC2 tests will be
valuable, but there's no need to go all out. At present I'm expecting
we'll build an RC3 tomorrow and focus on testing that really thoroughly
over the next 7 days (and any further RCs that turn out to be
RC1 was a failed compose attempt in releng, it never got out.
