[sorry this is late, I sent it from the wrong email address :< RC2 will
be landing in ~8 hours]

Somewhat later than scheduled [1], Fedora 23 Alpha Release Candidate 1
(RC1) is now available for testing. Please help us complete as much of
the validation testing as we can!

We already know we'll need an RC2, but so far the expected change is
minor (likely just dropping some packages from Server DVD). We
definitely need to fill out all the Alpha tests with RC1 to find any
other lurking blockers, so please help!

The Cloud base i386 image is hitting a mysterious failure during
compose. releng will work on it tomorrow, but if we can't fix it
there's a possibility it'll simply be dropped. All other significant
images should be available.

Content information, including changes, can be found at 
https://fedorahosted.org/rel-eng/ticket/6213#comment:6 . Please see the
following pages for
download links and testing instructions. Normally dl.fedoraproject.org 
should provide the fastest download, but download-
ib01.fedoraproject.org is available as a mirror (with an approximately 
1 hour lag) in case of trouble. To use it, just replace "dl" with 
"download-ib01" in the download URL.





Workstation and Desktop:








All Alpha priority test cases for each of these test pages 
[2] must pass in order to meet the Alpha Release Criteria [3]. We are
also trying to run the Beta and Final tests  at this time, to try and
identify later release blocker bugs as early as possible.

Help is available on #fedora-qa on irc.freenode.net [4], or on the 
test list [5].
