Next steps?

Hi all!

I know there are still some things that are not fully in shape or ready
for the RPM Fusion launch; but that will likely always be the case (just
like each release of a software contains some known bugs). And in fact
it seems to me that RPM Fusion already is in better shape then Livna
(and most if not all Livna contributors stopped updating their packages
in Livna).

So this time I'm not sending another "list of things that need to be
fixed" mail (you can look at the old ones if you like) and just ask:

What do *you* think really needs to be fixed before RPM Fusion can launch?

I suspect it's not much that will come up. Maybe we should open a
bugzilla blocker bug, but I'm not sure if it's really worth the trouble.
I'd say we just set a target date for the official RPM Fusion
announcement and tell everybody to get everything in shape by then; that
way some contributors will hopefully speed up to get the remaining
problems fixed in time for the official launch.

I'd even like to suggest a (slightly variable) date:

Date and time of Fedora 10 preview release -4 hours

That would mean Tuesday, November the 4rd at 11 UTC according to the
current schedule for F10:

The reason why I chose that date is simple: The preview release will the
some attention in the public media. Some news sites that otherwise would
not mention the RPM Fusion launch will then add a "Ohh, and RPM Fusion,
a new add-on repo for Fedora was launched as well for F8, F9 and
rawhide; ...."
