At today's FESCo meeting, aside from working on the Fedora 25 release schedule, was also the approval of some new Fedora 24 features.

The latest on Fedora 24 includes:

- They will approve skip-release upgrading as an officially supported upgrade method. This is where you would be skipping a release for an upgrade, going directly from say Fedora 22 to Fedora 24, rather than first having to stage a Fedora 23 upgrade.

- Cloud MOTD, Neuro Fedora SIG, Sugar 0.108, and Micro Bit are the latest approved Fedora self-contained features.

- The Fedora Astronomy spin has been rejected and is not being permitted in its current form of a new Fedora flavor just including already-available and packaged astronomy software.

- The Suds Jurko Fork packaging was approved.

- The new RPM Database format voting has been postponed to next week.

- Golang 1.6 has been approved for Fedora 24 for having the latest Go Language experience.
