I just saw this on the devel list. It seems that the intended target
audience of the workstation has been assumed to be only developers
completely excluding simple end users. What can we do to clarify this?

Yes, this has always been a problem, one that has been solved by
removing everything except the live CD. :p

This would be redundant with Fedora Workstation. Workstation is what you
want to download. We want it to be great for developers, but it's not
for developers only: your confusion indicates that we have not been
successful at marketing it as such.

We had an awesome days on the magazine the last 2 days. Minus the blip where the site went out, but with the increased load and large gear now I don't see any issues going forward.
The day Fedora was release we had 19,989 visitors, with the top article being Matthews Its Here, Announcing Fedora 21! article getting 12,837 views:
Yesterday we had 14,488 visitors, with Matthews article being in the top again, along with how to upgrade to Fedora 21 from Fedora 20 by Ryan Lerch and people looking in the archives.
Its been an awesome release and I am glad our team has come through for everything in our release items.

I'm getting some press requests for screenshots. I notice that the
screenshots at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F21_screenshots_library
are still from the beta, without the new art (and in fact, include the
intentionally-ugly placeholder). Does anyone have time to update these
today before the press start grabbing them? Thanks!

As we're getting to pretty solid RC, it's again time for release
announcement. Readiness meeting is on Thursday, would be nice to
have a draft ready for review and final version next Monday, so
text formatted and magazine versions can be prepared in advance.
Workstation seems to be pretty covered, do we have any additions
to Server and Cloud? The other thing is to get rid of all Beta
Thanks Joe for starting it and Paul for Workstation bit so
far! We had the best Alpha/Beta announcements so far, let's
continue with this high bar :).
Neville Cross (yn1v) tell than he wrote a report of Fudcon Managua for the
Fedora Magazine, is something like a official report, can some one please
can check it the post can be published?

Fedora 21 Final Release Readiness Meeting.
date: 2014-12-04 place: irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-2
time: 19:00 UTC (2 PM EST, 11 AM PST, 20:00 CET)
This Thursday, December 04, we will meet to make sure we are coordinated
and ready for the Final release of Fedora 21 on Tuesday, December 09, 2014.
Please note that this meeting will occur on December 09 even if the
release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two hours
You may received this message several times, but I was asked to open this
meeting to the teams and I'll also hope this will raise awareness and more
team representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams. Also, there's a
Fedora badge for active participants!
