I sent email to Kara Schiltz re-pinging. I suspect the Red Hat web
team may also need to weigh in since the redhat.com
reflects Fedora release content on release day as well.
Kara confirmed with me that this move would not be a monumental
problem for Red Hat's PR efforts. To reiterate, we'd want to be
mindful of the Red Hat team that works on the redhat.com
where space is typically reserved for us on the week following our
release date. In the event of some collision with other Red Hat needs
for the redhat.com
on or around our new release date, I'd work with
that team to find an agreeable solution.
