I would like to call it Fedora Mobility Netbook but the spin isn't
ready so I think we can just drop it all together for this release.
Lately it seems there's a lot of contention upstream and there's other
code related things that are causing problems and over the last couple
of months I've just not had the time to dedicate to it.

So for F-14 the spin formally known as MeeGo can be forgotten (very
unfortunately), I hope to get a remix at some point but that will
remain to be seen.
