https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F12_Beta_Announcement
 
 
* Hybrid ISO - earlier revision in Alpha release notes history. Confirm that it works well before adding it here
 
 
 
* Status of http://www.ing.unibs.it/openfwwf/ in Fedora? How well does it work?
 
 
 
* Moblin - Explain in detail with potentially a screencast
 
 
 
* GNOME Shell - Ogg Screencast possibly with voice over
 
 
 
* Yum Presto - In GNOME and KDE groups. Deltarpms are being generated in Rawhide again.
 
 
 
* http://live.gnome.org/GTK%2B/ClientSideWindows - Eclipse and Adobe Reader needs a workaround
 
 
 
* Abrt - whats the status?
 
 
 
* Anaconda MDRaid  - Explain in detail
 
 
 
* Lower Process Capabilities
 
 
 
* http://airlied.livejournal.com/68097.html - explain the details
 
 
 
* http://danwalsh.livejournal.com/31146.html - Dan Walsh on SELinux sandbox
 
 
* Contact KDE SIG and gather important changes. Phonon has changed to gstreamer backend in Alpha release and was not mentioned. So call it out in the Beta release.
 
 
 
Additional sources:
 
 
 
* Look at F11 Preview release notes and use it as a template
 
 
 
* Read rawhide reports in between alpha and beta release for new packages as well as import changes worth noting here
 
 
 
* Quickly skimp through all threads in fedora-devel and fedora-test list for note worthy changes
 
 
 
* Read Planet Fedora and reference developer blogs when important changes are mentioned
 
 
 
* Consult with QA team and make sure note worth issues are mentioned. If anything needs explicit testing, highlight it
 
 
 
* More details at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/12/FeatureList. Read the release notes section of each of the approved feature
 
 
 
Unsure status:
 
 
 
Dennis Gilmore mentioned that one of the secondary architectures might have a beta release. Followup on that
 
 
 
Last step:
 
 
 
Once you have a good draft, send it over to the fedora-devel and fedora-test list for feedback. Do it once before a week and once again two days before beta release.
