The overall aim is to have as many people as possible test the rhel7
beta and file bugs at bugzilla.redhat.com; that way everyone is testing
anf doing feedback against the same builds, and we all win with a better
overall end result.

However, we are still going to - slowly maybe - get a CentOS-7 beta
build going, so that CentOS users can start testing their depoyment
strategies, start writing docs at wiki.centos.org, start doing migration
testing etc so that when CentOS-7 comes around for release, its not all
a big surprise.

The reason I say slowly, is because I would like to build a more open
and more inclusive process that allows a larger audience to help build
and promote the resulting distro. Lots of ideas at this point, the
coming weeks should see some of them firm up into a process.

What I will say is : for anyone looking to get involved, start brushing
up your git skills and hang out in irc #centos-devel as and when you can.
