Hi All,

With Fedora/SoaS 21 out for some time I think we have a good and stable release.

Firstly I'd like to thank the awesome test effort to get a large chuck
of testing done and fixes in for the deadline.

Moving forward I'm happy to coordinate and deal with the release
engineering side of things to get the release out, fixes in etc.

What I'd like help in is someone who is happy to coordinate testing
and general community communications and facilitation. As you might
have noticed this isn't one of my strong points! When I do remember to
send out notifications to the list it's amazing how people spring into
furious action and get things tested and fixes in place.

It's relatively straight forward, the Fedora schedule is always well
organised [1] as is their QA team.

Following the Fedora process, while slightly restrictive, has proven
to give us strong releases and deals with a lot of the back in process
so we don't have and I don't think it's in our interest in changing
that (and personally I have no interest to change that).

I'd also be interested interested to hear how people would like to
improve the release from a technical perspective. Is there anything
people have a few cycles to work and contribute on that they'd like to
see in the release?

The only change I currently plan is to drop the long dead
sugar-presence-service (it's been 5 years!!) and anything that depends
on it (eToys I'm looking at you!) as I think over 5 years to port away
from it is well and truly enough!
