There were email messages about the RC candidates, though not on the Spins SIG
list. I think the expectation was that testing nightlies would be good enough.
Now we know differently. Though it would be nice to know what was different
so that we can make the nightlies better.
They really were RC4 images. RC4 was the last release candidate and hence
those images also became the final release. (Unlike the kernel release
process, the Fedora release process has release candidates being release
For the next release I suggest to send a mail to every spin owner
tell him to test each image rel-eng makes. I'm sure owners and the SIG
will be happy to help rel-eng wherever they can.
I don't think sending individual messages to spin owners by releng can be
expected. I think it should be expected that spin owners are subscribed to
the spins-sig list and that maybe this list should be copied along with
the other lists (I think the messages went out to the test list) when new
RCs are announced.
