How do you easily answer the question "What state is Fedora 13 in right

We can say "It's in rawhide still", we can say "It's released", what we
don't have is what it is between those two.  We could potentially use
"It's in Alpha, it's in Beta, it's in RC" but that's a lot of names for
the same kind of thing.  "It's branched" kind of works, but not really.
Maybe this is less of a name for a tree, and more of a name for at
tree /state/.  The tree is Fedora 13, the /state/ would be <term>.
Think of every place we used the term "Pending" during our FAD on
