Yep, I think they look in good shape.

Yes, this is a very confusing - not least because it's going to change
before the release.

What we plan on shipping is a version of kvm-userspace which is based
off the qemu-0.10.x branch.

So - F11 will have qemu-0.10.1 at the very least.

Pointing at the kvm ChangeLog is probably the best you can do, really.

There's added confusion there too - the kvm release changelog covers
both userspace and kernel space, and we don't ship a specific kernel kvm
version ... we ship whatever is in Linus releases.

Pruning it down a little might be good - e.g. "gnulib updates" doesn't
tell people anything useful. Not a big deal, though.
