== Overall Status of the Bits ==
o rawhide has been lagging because of delta rpm building
o verifying blocker list bugs today
o hoping that's today's bits will the preview release
o "expecting the unexpected"
o Good idea to get out links to the test matrix and blocker bug list on 
o All bugs on the preview blocker bug list have been examined or fixed: 
o Concern about https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=495924
  (moved to F11Blocker)
   --Docs team: please add to common bugs page for Fedora 11 -- 

== Documentation Team ==
o Release notes are ready
o Working on release announcement
o Approximately 12 translations partially done for Preview Release
o Some worries from translation teams due to size of changes in release 
o rlandmann did a quick statistical check and shows that size of changes 
from F10->F11 is a significantly smaller number than F9->F10

== Art Team ==
o One bug that unable to fix for preview release: BZ???
o Where should the countdown banner point to?
   --schedule or the preview release images?
   --need to check and possibly change wiki Schedule page to prominently 
link to prerelease
o Working on final banners

== Web Team ==
o Minor changes, everything good to go

== Infrastructure ==
o Keeping an eye on some upgrades at ibiblio (affects torrent server), 
everything good to go

== Marketing ==
o Not sure of overall status or plans
o Need resolution to slogan for web banner

== Future Meetings ==
o Still pursuing ability to record these meetings
o Hoping that Fedora 11 deployment will make this easier
o Some cons to moving to Asterisk for this in that we would not have 800 
call in numbers
