Thanks, Josh, I have a question (of which I don't really know the
answer) for the FAQ:


 Q: What happens to the packages tagged with dist-fc7 but not f7-final
 Q: Will I need to rebuilt my packages when Fedora 8 development

my question would be:

 Q: Will packages in dist-fc7 that were inherited into dist-fc8 appear
    in F8's rawhide?

I _assume_ the answer is

 A: Yes, rawhide is only limited to f7-final until F7 goes gold. After
    that rawhide will be rebased on dist-fc8, so any package that was
    in dist-fc7 and not in f7-final will reappear in rawhide.
