{{Admon/warning | This page is a DRAFT, is half-done, unofficial, and does not represent the final Fedora 16 schedule. | Basically, some individual contributors who wondered about rough future dates put up a copy of the [[Releases/14/Schedule|Fedora 14 Schedule]] and made a few date adjustments for their guesses on when things might happen, based on past years - no official discussions or decisions have been made about the schedule for F16. Check back in mid-May 2011, when the the actual schedule discussions and decisions will be made.}}
