Sorry to reply to myself -- but I wanted to point out that the Fedora
Infrastructure team is a strong fraternity of people from all around
this community.  Tim is well aware of the many long hours that we all
spent, both inside and outside Red Hat, on getting things back in order
over the last week or so.  So this note is not just about Red Hat
employees, it's about all of you on this list who've put your back into
the work, and got it done without question or complaint.  Enjoy the rest
of your weekend.
