The ambiguity of the spins process threw me somewhat in F-12 with
Moblin being very new to all the process (well having seen it and
never participated) as I couldn't find anything that really outlined
it well and there was nothing in the way of notifications and nothing
in the schedule. I would have thought it was submitted by alpha and
completely approved by beta (including a beta release) but even though
my wiki search skills are crap, even google never provided me with
anything close. But then I failed by not actually asking so ultimately
it was my own fault as I plain ran out of time but it would be useful
on the main schedule none the less!
