It won’t be the 18th since the Beta freeze will still be in place. I checked with the team yesterday on that. They’ll decide on Friday after the F34 Beta Go/No-Go what the new date is. I’ll be sure to let them know the announcement needs to be made more broadly.

Ah great. We’ll unpin it from Ask Fedora too then.

Thanks very much for checking.
