Dimitris, thanks for your input on the schedule.  I was hoping that we
would also have someone from the L10n team who could commit to being
present at the release readiness meetings.  If you want to do that,
fantastic -- but I'd also understand if you wanted to make way for
someone else in the group to step up into this liaison role.

There are only a few of these meetings per cycle.  The meetings help
us ensure that all the teams working on a Fedora release have
everything they need from each other, and that no one is blocked
(knowingly or not) by something unforeseen.  We would really
appreciate having someone from the L10n group there to make sure this
team's needs are being considered and met!
