F16 Beta Go/No Go Meeting, Round 2.5, + report-out on yesterday's meeting.

Join us on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting for the second half of 
this important meeting.

Thanks to the tireless* efforts of our outstanding QA folks, testing on 
RC4, created late yesterday, has been ongoing all night long.  We'll be 
having the second-and-a-half round of our F16 Beta Go/No-Go TODAY.  The 
first half of this meeting occurred yesterday[1][2], and it was decided 
that we would make a stretched effort to have another RC including fixes 
by midnight last night that looked viable, which actually happened. (Had 
it not been viable, we would have called it No-Go by midnight.)

Thursday, September 29, 2011 @21:00 UTC (17:00 EDT/14:00 PDT)

"Before each public release Development, QA and Release Engineering
