6 months are a too short time. And it was less than 6 months. As can be
seen from the F18 release schedule [1], originally it was about 3 months
between the day F17 was released and the day new Anaconda was expected
to work (F18 Alpha release). We of course didn't start the work on May
29, but since there were significant changes in F17 too at least part of
the team had to fix bugs and make F17 releasable. Also Alpha is not
supposed to be 100% feature complete, but it seemed to me that not
everybody was taking this into account.
