2017 was a busy year for the Bodhi project. This post explains a bit about what Bodhi does, highlights, and goals for 2018.
Bodhi is designed to democratize the package update testing and release process for RPM-based Linux distributions. It provides an interface for developers to propose updates to a distribution, and an interface for testers to leave feedback about updates through a +1/-1 karma system.
Interesting events or issues I was involved in or I noticed in the Fedora project and community which happened during the last week:
As a subsequent step after the F27 Beta release, the freeze applied on updates has been lifted. The Final freeze is planned on October 17th. For more information please check the F27 Schedule.
Randy Barlow has announced a new state implemented in Bodhi called “batched”. The purpose of this state is to have a state for packages waiting for weekly batch update push. This will help in gating of updates if needed, so we might have a choice on planning of updates.
And of course, the list above is not exhaustive and there is much more going on in Fedora community. The list above just summarizing some tasks which has drawn my attention.

There exist two types of policies in Bodhi, using any of them maintainers can publish their package updates (Pushing updates to Stable from Testing). Updates Policy documentation: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy
