This topic came up yesterday in some discussion with John Poelstra and
Jesse Keating.  The idea was something around an [alpha|beta|final]
release checklist.  It might be a slightly different focus from what
you're talking about, but I think we could adapt it to fit.  Things it
might include ...

      * All services start successfully in a default install (as you
      * No SELinux AVC denials on initial boot or subsequent login in a
        default install
      * No ABRT crash notifications on initial boot or subsequent login
        in a default install
      * The BetaNag has been removed from the installer
      * Fedora-release package contains final version
      * Kernel no longer compiled with debugging enabled
      * All packages signed with the appropriate key?
      * Anything about release notes?
      * What else?

We can play games with a read-only master page which transcludes all
other [[Test_Result]] content for easier test and result management.  

/me thinks ... (smoke, gears grinding etc...)
