That's what I have been asking this whole time and no one from FESCO 
bothered to answer.

What's the rush shipping it now? Why not delay-it until F19 when it has 
further stabilized?

The distribution upgrade tool just got submitted for reviewed yesterday 
and we are in FREEZE!

And just to be sure that everything breaks FESCO accepts [3] feature 
happening in the same development cycle ( wtf ).

So in QA not only have we been dealing with the newUI but also the fact 
once the installer actually works it might not install the correct bits 
for due to the packaging rework <sigh>
