the push toward fc6

My fellow Fedora-ites,

Many of you have probably seen this, but for those who haven't, I would like to point your attention to an op-ed piece that was recently posted on distrowatch:


The author looks at the most recent releases of Ubuntu, SuSe, and Fedora, and concludes that fc5 is "possibly one of the most stable and dependable Linux distributions ever built."

This is tremendous praise, and I hope that everyone who contributes to Fedora -- whether you contribute code to Core or Extras, documentation, testing, design skills, web work, translation, or something else -- feels a strong sense of pride from this, since it is the combined efforts of the Fedora community that has gotten us to where we are.

Everywhere I go, people who find out that I work on Fedora compliment me on fc5. I hear over and over again that it's the best yet, that things "just work" and that it's powerful and slick. The credit for all of this belongs to the developers, release engineers, and testers who put in countless hours to get us there. Thank you.

We have a devel freeze for fc6-test1 tomorrow, and a scheduled release of fc6-test1 next Wednesday.

So I'd like to thank all of the people who have been working hard on getting things ready, and I'd like to urge everyone to put in the testing effort that we need to make sure that fc6 lives up to the same standard that we created for fc5.

Will Woods is our Fedora Test Lead, and fc6 is going to be the first release that he works on. Please offer him your help, your time, and your talent.

We will continue to make our mark by being the most innovative and highest quality distribution. Let the other folks talk about it -- meanwhile, we'll just keep making it happen.

You are Fedora.
