Please make corrections and clarifications to the wiki page.

== News Update From F13 ==
 * Test2 is on the way to mirrors
 * rawhide is now back to being rawhide unfrozen
 * minimal buildroots have been adjusted (util-linux-ng is back, 
perl(-devel) not listed)
 * have a list of names for F8--need to followup with legal
 * we should really go after the broken deps and upgrade paths a week 
or two before the test3 freeze
 * when are we supposed to turn off new packages for FC6?
   * FC6 gets shut down one month after F8, do we turn off new packages 
 * I'm working on the signing server stuff, and making good progress. 
I updated the Spec page for it and moved it into 
ReleaseEngineering/Projects/ space.
   * hope to have something reasonable for a code drop in a git module 
or something by the end of this week.  Right now things like gpg key and 
passphrase are hardcoded so I don't want to commit that anywhere right 
now (:

== Miscellaneous ==
 * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Extras/Policy/EOL
   * The EOL policy is clearly stale/out-out-date, something FESCo 
should probably clarify/update.
 * Should we do freezes and and snapshots differently for F9 and beyond?
