Fedora 14 was a pretty relaxing and stable release. I'm thinking that
Fedora 15 may be much more exciting. ;) 

Things I know of so far: 

* systemd 
* gnome3 / gnome-shell default
* removing a bunch of suid stuff in favor of capabilities
* xfce 4.8 (with any luck). 

Things that are out there, but no idea if anyone is working on them or
if they might be ready by f15: 

* grub2 (no one is driving for this that I know of, but has some
  advantages over our grub1 if someone is willing to run with it, although
  it may be a lot of work to get it to where we need it). 

* btrfs (Is this ready to be default? :) If so, would that warrant a
  change in our lvm by default setup? 

* Can we finally remove hal? (xfce4.8 shouldn't need it anymore with
  any luck). 

* Will NM finally be able to do bridging? 

* Some kind of packaged wayland to play with, even if it doesn't do

Any other exciting work in progress that might land in F15 that people
are actively working on?
