In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Dave Jones suggested that unreleased kernels could use some extra testing love. "Producing RPM builds of the rawhide kernel for our already released Fedoras...What I’m toying with doing is some devel kernels for Fedora 11 that are built outside of the Fedora build system."
Adam Williamson described the new policies around the "severity" and "priority" fields in Fedora's Bugzilla. Additionally, Adam has been working "to improve and create pages dedicated to explaining how to debug issues in particular components, and how to provide appropriate information when filing bugs on those components" as well as a project called Fit and Finish "to work on the small details that make a polished desktop experience."
Jeroen van Meeuwen proposed that Fedora 12 should be supported with an additional 6-month "Extended Life Cycle" consisting of only security fixes, when the End-Of-Life policy would otherwise be put into place.
As a special bonus, from elsewhere in the blogosphere, Aaron Seigo (of KDE fame) described some issues around processes and decision making at freedesktop.org, and how they might be overcome (this being a particularly auspicious time with the combined GUADEC+Akademy Gran Canaria Desktop Summit taking place).
