I'm a bit confused. You spend the rest of the mail talking about when
the feature freeze is for F15, but I'm not sure why. As long as F15 is
open and it's not frozen (which it obviously isn't, yet) you can start
doing development in it. As John P said, we've already started approving
features for F15. So right now you can submit a feature for F15, have it
approved, and start committing it. What is it that makes you say it's
'not the current feature process'?
