Fedora 16 Alpha to slip by one week.

At yesterday’s Go/No-Go meeting, it was decided that the F16 Alpha release would slip by one week. There are numerous blocker bugs preventing release, preventing the creation of a viable release candidate, per the Alpha Release Criteria.  F16 Alpha is now expected to be released on August 23, 2011.

Adjustments have been made to the overall F16 schedule to allow for the slip. ALL MAJOR MILESTONES, including the Alpha release date and all subsequent milestones, have been pushed out by one week, as have all dependent tasks.  Beta Release is now expected on September 27, 2011, and F16 GA is now scheduled for November 1, 2011.

Today’s (2011-08-11) previously announced Release Readiness meeting will go on AS SCHEDULED.  There will be another Alpha Blocker meeting this Friday, and another Go/No-Go meeting will be scheduled for next Wednesday, August 17, 2011.

You can see all of the details of the Fedora 16 schedule here, but I am including the newly-adjusted dates in this blog post because I am a kind, sweet, thoughtful person. Really. I swear it. Has anyone seen my halo?
