Hey folks, just a quick update on what's going on with the F16 release.

So validation of RC2 is looking very good overall. However, we did find
a couple of issues that were accepted as blockers at the QA meeting:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=750228 - efidisk.img is
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=651305 - KDE upgrade is

We're going to spin an RC3 to fix the second, and a couple of Xfce /
LXDE NTH issues, but it shouldn't negate RC2 testing; we'll only really
have to sanity check the RC3 images aren't totally broken and re-do the
KDE testing, we don't need to re-do the entire installation matrix or

The first bug is rather mysterious; we can't figure out what's causing
it. But happily efidisk.img is rather unimportant these days and there's
no functional difference between RC1 and RC2 as far as efidisk.img goes,
so if RC3's also turns out to be broken, we'll simply ship the RC1

The RC2 testing looks to be almost complete, great job everyone! As long
as RC3 doesn't explode we should be able to green light the release
tomorrow. If anyone's concerned about any bug which doesn't seem to be
getting attention, please let me know.
