I just thought I would give people a heads up for changes that I'm
aware of that are going to be appearing in Fedora 15 / SoaS 5.
The big one will be gnome3/gtk3 plus the associated changes that will
come with the required pygtk / gobject-introspection (Tomeu could you
possibly fill out some of the impact of this?), I'm somewhat concerned
about this actually but time will tell.
Also on the cards is the following:
- csound 5.12.1 (in rawhide now - please test)
- systemd - new init startup - I don't this affects us directly in
that we don't have any specific custom services that depend on it
(although it might affect olpc)
- /var/run and /var/lock mounted as tmpfs (likely no affect as the last one)
- Replace setuid applications with File Capabilities in order to make
them more secure (again I don't think anything will be affected)
All the current approved Fedora 15 features can be found here 
If anyone else knows of anything else that might affect the release,
or if anyone has queries or more information to add please speak up.
