At the F17 Alpha Go/No-Go meeting today, the Fedora 17 Alpha release 
(RC4) was declared GOLD, and ready for shipment on February 28, 2012.

GOLD is the color of mustard, and, as you know, mustard indicates 
progress. A huge thank you to everyone who made this on-time(!!!) Alpha 
release possible. My (occasionally inaccurate) research tells me that 
the last time we shipped an Alpha according to schedule was Fedora 10. 
That is some excellent progress, in my humble opinion :)
