The current plan is to test in rawhide for a few days at least and find
any major issues and clean up any problems, then look at building for
f22 and submit our late change and a freeze break to get into the
alpha compose (if we can).  

Note that testing 4.11.x was fine, but there were still changes between
them and 4.12 in some cases I think and of course there's the
integration parts, etc

We could do this, but not sure it's worth it really at this point. 
We depend on both gtk2 and gtk3 for various things, so until we get to
the point where we want to remove gtk2 from the live install, not sure
it buys us much. I could be missing something tho...

Well, I think if we split things up we could break gtk3 panel plugins
with a gtk2 panel. We would need deps to pull back in the gtk3 stuff,
at which point I'm not sure there's value in splitting it...

Sure, thats a great way to try. ;)
