Packages which require an exception to freeze policies must be run through this SOP.

The following freeze policies are set for the following significant release milestones:

See Important Release Milestones for a summary of all the freezes, dates, and exception handling.


The commands to tag a package properly once it has been accepted:

$ koji move-pkg --force dist-f{{FedoraVersion}}-updates-candidate dist-f{{FedoraVersion}} <PKGNAME>
$ koji tag-pkg --force f{{FedoraVersion}}-<RELEASE> <PKGNAME>

Where <PKGNAME> is the package name, and <RELEASE> is the first release in which the package should land (e.g. beta, preview, final).


The koji client reports success or failure. For secondary verification, run these commands:

$ koji latest-pkg dist-f{{FedoraVersion}} <PKGNAME>
$ koji latest-pkg dist-f{{FedoraVersion}}-updates-candidate <PKGNAME>

Consider Before Running

  • Change agrees with stated policies (see links above)
  • Approval for change has been granted
