Bugzilla Product Descriptions

  • Change on release day

Bugs related to the components of the Fedora distribution. If you are reporting a bug against a stable release 
please select that version number. The currently maintained released versions are: Fedora 9, Fedora 10, and Fedora 11. 
If you have a bug to report against the daily development tree (rawhide) or a version of Fedora in testing, 
please choose 'rawhide' as the version.

  • STATUS: DONE by poelcat on 2009-06-08

Warning to Package Maintainers

  • Send to fedora-devel-announce@redhat.com at least two weeks before mass change date (~ 2009-05-12)

Summer is almost here and things are about to heat up (at least here in the 
Northern Hemisphere!) with the release of Fedora 11. With each new Fedora 
release comes some Bugzilla housekeeping.  This e-mail is designed to let 
you know about two things happening around May 26, 2009 (Fedora 11 day) and 
what you need to do, if anything.

(1) We will be automatically changing the version all rawhide bugs to Fedora 11.  
This will result in regular bugs reported against rawhide during the Fedora 11 
development cycle being changed to version '11' instead of their current assignment, 
'rawhide'.  This is done in order to more accurately tell where in the lineage 
of releases the bug was last reported because over time 'rawhide' becomes ambiguous.

Note that this procedure does not apply to bugs that are against component 
'Package Review' or bugs that have the 'FutureFeature' or 'Tracking' keywords set. 
They will stay open as rawhide bugs indefinitely.

If you do not want your bugs changed to version '11', add the FutureFeature keyword. 
If you need help changing a large amount of bugs manually, we'd be glad to help. 
Stop by #fedora-bugzappers on irc.freenode.net and we'll help you.

(2) All bugs for upcoming EOL releases (at this point, Fedora 9) will get a 
comment on release day, explaining that one month of maintenance remains.  
These bugs must move to a later version if still applicable or they will be 
automatically closed in one month with a resolution of WONTFIX.

More about these processes is here:

Fedora 9 EOL Warning

Qualifying Criteria

All must be met:

  1. version == Fedora 9
  2. status != CLOSED

Mass Change Specification

  • Date to run: 2009-06-09

Added Comment

This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping

Added Comment

Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
