We might get better coverage if we explicitly specify when it it needs
to happen vs. "all the time" :)

I would say this would be the latest RC that gets accepted no?
2010-10-14 - RC composes start
The final spins would be created from whatever RC is accepted as final.
That is followed by the hand-off to QA on 2010-10-16 and then they have
a week to qualify it. This raises a couple of questions:
1) How long does it take to create the final spins? (releng)
2) How much time do you need to test them and when should testing start
and end? (spins)
3) How much lead time does releng need to post the spins for GA, get the
torrent files ready, etc? IOW, when does the testing of the spins need
to be completed by and spins that do not work dropped for Fedora 14?

You mean the ones from the final freeze? Or the ones that rel-eng
Asked a different way above.

Those have typically been done when rel-eng is ready. Typically the
weekend before release, but it was monday (the day before release) this
I will put on the schedule for the Friday before GA.

Again, we should get rel-eng input. I would say the friday before
release? When RC is done? When bit links are made?

Good questions. Artwork and spins.fedoraproject.org
dates would be
great. I guess we need to ask websites and art about what dates should
Yes, working with them to find out how much lead time they need is
probably a great idea. Then we can add some milestones to their
schedule too so they can be thinking about it and preparing in advance.
