All of the coming week, we will be testing for  i18n features in Fedora 28. Those are as follows:

The fontconfig 2.13 Change will be based on the fontconfig upstream 2.13 release which will help to reduce the time during the font package installation/removal on the scriptlet to create/update caches which will make package installations/removal 5x to 10x faster than the previous release. This release also improves the performance of the applications with flatpak.

Test Day will focus on testing the new kernel, as the 4.14 kernel has just released, we would like to get a test day in before we push the rebase to stable releases.
We will have ISOs for USB images so that users can test on bare metal or in VMs, and the kernel will be available in the stabilization repo for users who wish to install it on existing systems.

We hope to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.

We need your help!
