[Test-Announce] Fedora 18 testing: final night!

Hey folks! So we are definitely on the final night of Fedora 18 testing
now (everyone, take a drink).

As it's Fedora, we came up with a fudge at the go/no-go meeting today:
we agreed we're definitely shipping either RC3 or RC4. RC3 is RC2 with
the final release notes, and RC4 is RC3 with the fprintd fix for
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=810040 . Those are the only
differences between those builds (Xfce live came out correctly sized in
RC4 and oversize in RC3, but that's just known weirdness in the compose

A final go/no-go meeting will happen today/tomorrow (Thursday, Jan 10)
to decide which one we ship. I'm not gonna hazard a guess as to what the
call will be - there are arguments on both sides - but the last thing QA
can do to provide useful data for the decision is to get as much
validation testing done on RC3 and RC4 as reasonably possible.

The matrices:
