== Reports on F7-Test 4 ==
 * wwoods
   * rawhide is currently uninstallable
   * concerned about mkinitrd issues - there's a lot of "can't find /dev/root" reports out there
   * we're gonna need some docs on device labeling, since that's a very common install failure--cc jeremy on bugs 
   * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=234938 is a failed upgrade
   * https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=236743  those are anaconda, not mkinitrd
 * warren
   * resume regressed on my thinkpad :/ but that's something I'll track down and report in a bit
   * qemu is not working; jeremy believes he has a fix

== Merge ==
 * Decisions 
   * Buildsys freeze on 01-MAY-07
   * Start merge on 02-MAY-07 at 12:00 EDT until completed 
   * move final devel freeze out one week
   * hold current GA date of 24-MAY-07
   * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/CoreExtrasMerge
   * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/CoreExtrasCVSMerge should be pretty detailed for the cvs side of the merge
 * f13 
   * I'm continuing to keep koji updated with the Core builds
   * dgilmore had something cooking to import Extras builds, we should probably start doing that regularly ASAP
   * the question marks are, a owners.list <-> koji sync tool
   * need the creation of a needsign type que for up to the hour build access and a way to do package signing.
   * how did we wind up with a 1~ week window between Test4 release and Final freeze?
   * moving ahead with hardware we have; new hardware is on the way
   * it could take a while to import the Extras stuff becasue I'll have to write something up to do the imports since Extras isn't in a koji like builddb right now
   * we will let people do post-merge rebuilds to pick up new builddeps
   * there is also a ton of dist-fc7 builds that haven't been requested for f7-final tagging.
   * we will disable the build system by removing the dist-fc7 build target from brew.
   * koji will first be used for f7 only and after the dust settles we'll bring over fc6-updates
   * will document the freeze process
   * will send mail on freeze
 * jeremy
   * people will still have to request their post-merge rebuilds be tagged for final
 * mmcgrath
    * will try to clean up the filesystem on cvs too before next wed.  It's kind of a mess on that box right now.
    * new PPC arriving late this week or beginning of next 
 * notting 
   * when can we reasonably have a deadline?
   * will create the hook for the owners.list <-> koji sync
 * poelcat
   * suggested detailed schedule with completion dates for merge
   * others thought a list of tasks is fine because everything has to be done on Wednesday
