Fedora 11 Feature List

Am I wrong in thinking that the approved Feature List for Fedora 11 is the longest list we've had to date for the release featuring process? I know the Feature process evolves with every release to make it better, and I really have to say I think its worth the time people put into it to get it right. The Feature Wrangler,  FESCO, and all the developers who take the time to engage in the featuring process.

That feature list and the evolving featuring process has immense value in not only in terms of external messaging for a release, but also internally by telling us where the contributor sweat-equity focused.   There is a lot of integrated contributor value expressed in that approved feature list.
