Summary

Orphaned Packages

  • Discussed some issues with orphaned packages:
  • Packages that are orphaned in a stable maintained release (ie. F6 or F7), and aren't picked up by another maintainer, will only have security updates (handled by the security team) until EOL.
  • Reminder: In CVS, the devel branches are marked with a dead.package file. http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/PackageMaintainers/PackageEndOfLife
  • Beginning with F9, orphaned packages will be removed up to Feature Freeze, after feature freeze orphans will not be removed and must be picked up by somebody (with reasonable exceptions).
