For a couple of months, part of the Community Platform Engineering (CPE) team has been focusing on making the changes needed in Bodhi to enable the rawhide gating change proposal.Continue reading
After a week I would like to share some activities in Fedora happened since my last post:
On Thursday, 2017-Oct-19, we had a second round of the Go/No-Go meeting for the delayed F27 Beta release of the Server (modular) edition. Result of the meeting is No-Go due to missing Release Candidate compose. We are going to run third round of the Go/No-Go meeting on Thursday, 2017-Oct-26 at 17:00 UTC together with the Go/No-Go meeting for F27 Final release.
Since Tuesday, October 17th we are in a Freeze period for F27 Final. It means the F27 Final release is pretty close and we are going to run Go/No-Go meeting on this Thursday, October 26th as well as F27 Final Readiness meeting.
This is not a news from the last week, however I have realized not many people know about this. At the beginning of October has been “rawhide” renamed to “bikeshed” for the Fedora Modular server. So, nowadays you can find the latest modular builds on Koji under the latest-Fedora-Modular-Bikeshed directory.
Thanks to Ryan Lerch, Justin Flory and Pingou we now have installed a new version of the Voting Application in the staging environment. Hopefully the new version will be available for the upcoming elections once F27 is made GA.
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.
Fedora developer Ray Strode recently posted to the Fedora Developers list with the news that Wayland is now used by default when you log into GNOME with Fedora Workstation. Previously to try out Wayland with Workstation, there was an additional session in the login screen that allowed you to choose either login with Xorg or Wayland. This change is part of the much anticipated proposed Fedora 24 feature, Wayland by Default.
Ray also noted that, as the Change is still proposed, if Wayland by default doesn’t pan out, or the change doesn’t get approved rawhide will be switched back to having both sessions.
Ray also noted:
“But it’s good to get this in rawhide now, so we can get as much
exposure as possible to potential Wayland problems and get them fixed up before release.”
So if you use Rawhide, test away and file bugs!
