Ok, I'm just waiting on an anaconda build which we'll tag for f7-final.  That 
should be the last build tonight and what I'll base the RC trees on.  Rawhide 
should be almost the same, with the exception of fedora-release.  The RC isos 
will have the new fedora-release which points to repos that as of yet don't 

More testing of software raid would be appreciated, and making sure we don't 
bomb out of the installer due to Unicode stuff would be swell as well.  If 
this tree looks good, we'll slap the seal of approval on it and send it on 
its way to the mirrors.  If it's bad, well, we'll see where we get by 
2007-05-25 18:00 UTC.
