The only argument I can think of for keeping with F15 is that we're
still trying to figure all this out. It might be useful to use F15 as a
trial run for F16 but after a point, I agree that the usefulness is

AFAIK, we're figuring this out as we go. Athmane put some test cases
together for the EC2 test day  but to the best of my knowledge, there
is nothing official like the the installation test plan .

Like James said, it's all volunteer right now. So far, at least Athmane
and I are interested in the test side of things, though.

I think this is a little more difficult since we're still trying to
figure the process out. In theory, once the rel-eng EBS issues are
figured out, we shouldn't need to do much extra for EC2. Hopefully, we
wouldn't need more than a test day and some people running through test
How detailed of a schedule did you have in mind? I don't think that it
would hurt to set some target dates.
