Following on the heals of John Poelstra, I was taking a look at all the
F12 Virt Features with the release notes in mind.

That's an impressive and ambitious list!

Given the schedule:
 2009-07-28 	 Feature Freeze--Planning & Development Ends
 2009-08-18 	 Alpha Release

Identifying what is likely to actually make it will hopefully allow the
release notes to be more focused and useful. I clicked through each and
quickly came up with the categorized list below. 

I made a very quick uninformed guess at what was unlikely to make F12,
otherwise I listed a feature as pending whether it is ready for the
feature wrangler or not.

If you know a feature is definitely not going to make it or if you think
a feature is likely to make it out of pending status, please comment
below or update the feature's targeted Fedora release.

An evaluation of the percent complete or a bump to the last update date
on the feature page might also be helpful.
