If this is for the release notes, I would prefer any change in markup 
happen at the earliest possible occasion. As early as Fedora 7 Test 2.

* Ensure that you indeed have a advantage in converting from rest to 
docbook as opposed to moin code which hasnt been upstreamed yet. 
Alternatively continue to push for the conversion code to be merged. We 
dont want that work to stagnate and become irrelevant when a new major 
version of moinmoin pops out.

* Provide sample content in the form of release notes to demonstrate of 
its capabilities as a better markup language.
