I'm sorry, but I'm missing the outrage - the feature page listed the
following things, under 'Scope':
  * Package Reviews  (were not fully done)
  * Comps: new group with id "lxde-desktop", name "LXDE"...
	o mandatory: lxde-common, lxpanel, openbox, pcmanfm
	o default: gpicview, leafpad, lxappearance, lxtask, lxterminal, obconf, xarchiver
	... (wasn't done)

and, under 'Test Plan':
  As most of the packages are already in fedora they are proven to be stable. So we need to
  1. get the 2 missing packages into rawhide ASAP so they are included in the F10 Beta
  2. add packages to comps
  3. test that installation with yum-groupinstall works correctly
  4. test fresh installs with the beta 

It wasn't even to having step 1 completed. So, exactly what else is there to
do when even the basic scope and test plan of the feature isn't ready?
