F11 is almost out of the oven!!

Thanks Mikus & everybody for all of your hard testing! Special kudos to
SMParish for doing the builds! 

Here at .PY we have been able to setup the os image build machinery
(thanks Bernie!) so we plan to roll out a signed image soon.. Stay

Any other major blocker that deserves attention?
