== Executive Summary ==
 1. Freezing for Test4 tomorrow (17-APR-07)
    * f13 to create tag and start signing packages on 17-APR-07
    * start of continuous freeze until Fedora 7 goes GOLD
    * potential checkins for F8 starting in June (assuming all goes well)
* any builds will have to be brought to rel-eng fedoraproject org before it'll get included in:
      a. Rawhide
      a. the final release.
* Eventually need documentation surrounding the freeze and distro build process
 1. Merge of extras and core
    * will not delay F7
    * will most likely not be completed until after F7
    * held up because of equipment needed in the colo
* post-merge some packages will need to be rebuilt to pick up deps that used to be in Extras 1. In the future we should consider a mass rebuild of all packages around, but no later than test2
 1. Still working on increasing build capacity
