The Fedora 15 development cycle is well under way, and making good
progress.  Yesterday I met[1] with Release Engineering, QA, the Fedora
Program Manager, and we decided that in order to accommodate some
late-breaking changes, we're going to need to slip the Fedora 15
release schedule by a week in order to have adequate time to do proper
testing of the candidate images before the Beta.  This slip will
affect the entire Fedora 15 development cycle, as shown in the chart

   o Feature Submission Deadline    2011-01-25

   o Software String Freeze         2011-02-15
