We haven't discussed this officially yet, but I've personally been operating
under the assumption that it will be, provided that all the moving parts are in
place in time.
Fedora 26 is currently scheduled for early June. From the crystal
at this point, I don't see any reason we'd slip, but just to be on the
safe side, let's go ahead and assume a late June final release.
If we keep to the current policy and schedule F27 to land in late
October or early November, that means a four month cycle — and at least
the last month (and probably two) of that cycle should be
stabilization, not development. (This is basically comparable to the
F25 schedule we just went through, for comparison.)
So, basically: is that sufficient time for the F27 Server plans?
Well, the current modularity/Factory 2.0 timeframe has most of the heavy-lifting
being done in the F26 schedule. So while I'm not ready to *commit* to it, I
think it's achievable (particularly with the ongoing investment in personnel
from Red Hat to accomplish it).
