fedora-virt-preview aims to ship in Fedora N what you would otherwise
have to use Fedora N+1 for, limiting to just virtualization packages.
So if rawhide (F23) is shipping qemu 2.2.1, then fedora-virt-preview for
F22 will also ship qemu 2.2.1.

I see tremendous benefit to putting the RC candidate in rawhide - that
much extra testing to make sure the final release is not going to cause
unexpected regressions.

This list isn't the primary list for fedora-virt-preview questions; it's
not that the product is unsupported, but that the support is better
found on the correct list.
