So actually - once the feature page is done, it goes through the feature 
wrangler, who will move the feature page into the FeatureReadyForFesco 
category, and will also file the ticket. (The ticket #663 actually ... 
failed to follow the process of going through the feature wrangler.)

And since I'm the feature wrangler anyway, I will make the ticket and so 
forth. :)

My comments on the feature page:

* Features need to be at 100% by 9/13 - is SELinux assistance the only 
thing holding this back from being at 100%? Or is the intent to update 
to Diablo as well?
* Release notes need to be a bit more comprehensive - this is literally 
what goes into the Fedora release notes.  Usually some information about 
what it is, does, etc. is helpful here.  Probably combining a bit of the 
summary with some of the detailed description would be useful here, as 
well as including a link to any upstream release notes.
* Please elaborate on "hosting fedora images for openstack" - would we 
have to generate specific images, etc? I wonder if Major Hayden 
(rackerhacker) could pipe in here - would it be possible to have Fedora 
images at rackspace somehow? :) Alternately, I think we're pretty late 
in the cycle to ask releng to figure out what to do here, and Oz isn't 
part of that toolchain, so it would be something we'd have to figure out 
how to do ourselves, and host it somewhere.
