Thanks to awesomepaul's reminder, here's text for the Beta release 
announcement, cues taken from F12's Beta announcement and F13's Alpha 
announcement; feel free to tear it/me apart :)


== Fedora 13 Beta Release Announcement ==
The Fedora 13 "Goddard" Beta release is available! What's next for the free 
operating system that shows off the best new technology of tomorrow? You can 
see the future now at:


== What is the Beta Release? ==
The beta release is the last important milestone of Fedora 13. Only critical 
bug fixes will be pushed as updates leading up to the general release of 
Fedora 13, scheduled to be released in the middle of May. We invite you to 
join us and participate in making Fedora 13 a solid release by downloading, 
testing, and providing your valuable feedback.

Of course, this is a beta release, some problems may still be lurking. Should 
you trip across one of them, be sure it gets fixed before release by reporting 
your discovery at: 
Thank you!

== Features ==
(features section from F13 alpha release announcement)

== Contributing ==

For more information including common and known bugs, tips on how to report 
bugs, and the official release schedule, please refer to the release notes:


Thank you, and we hope to see you in the Fedora project!



Will that beta release notes page exist?
