With the update to a 2.6.18-rc based kernel, Xen requires some more
effort to get to working. Given that Xen is one of the big features for
Fedora Core 6, trying to ship the second test release (and thus the
feature freeze) without Xen seems like a less than ideal situation.
Therefore, after discussion within the Fedora Board, we have decided to
slip the freeze for test2 until Xen is working again with current
kernels. Based on current estimates, it looks like this should
hopefully be Monday, 24 July. We'll continue to provide updates as more
information is available.
All are invited to join the Fedora Project at the upcoming O'Reilly Open
Source Conference (OSCON 2006) on July 24-28 at the Oregon Convention
Center in Portland, Oregon. Fedora will be proudly exhibiting in
the .org pavilion and running a Birds of a Feather sessions.

Hope to see you there.

Due to a desire to integrate the DT_GNU_HASH changes for binutils and
glibc (which provide an ~ 50% speedup for dynamic linking) and the
necessity of doing a rebuild for these changes, we are going to slip the
freeze for FC6 test2 by one week. The new freeze date will be
Wednesday, 19 July 2006. This should also allow a few other things that
are straggling time to be tested a little bit more in time for the
feature freeze at test2.
