Announcing Fedora 11 Alpha (blink)

To blink or not to blink: that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous users,
Or to take arms against a see of power drains.
And by opposing end them?  To die: to sleep;
No more: and by a sleep to say we suspend.

Ok enough of that.  The Fedora project is proud to present the
availability of Fedora 11 (Leonidas) Alpha.  Now is the time to test,
now is the time to improve.

The Alpha release provides the first opportunity for the wider community
to become involved with testing Fedora 11 by way of Rawhide:

Alpha represents a sanitized snapshot of rawhide, Fedora's development
branch, which undergoes rapid changes before becoming the next major
      * The Alpha should boot on the majority of systems, and provides: 
              * A look at what new features are to be included in the
                next release
              * A way to provide feedback and bug reports to help ensure
                that the next release is as good as possible

For information about what new and wonderful things Alpha brings us,
please check out the release notes:
