Fedora 20 Accepted System Wide Changes Proposals

These changes have been accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee for the Fedora 20 Release as System Wide Changes.

Category:ChangesAcceptedF20 and Category:SystemWideChange

ARM as primary Architecture

Make ARM a primary architecture. Add armv7hl to the i686 and x86_64 as arches that we build and support. This will mean that all packages supported by the ARM architecture must build for ARM to be released. With the release of Fedora 19 we have deprecated support for software floating support (ARMv5tel sfp) so the only proposed addition to primary architectures is currently ARMv7 hardware floating point 32 bit support (ARMv7 hfp 32bit).

python-setuptools update to 0.7.x and greater

Update to a new upstream release of python-setuptools that is not completely compatible with previous releases. The python-setuptools "major" version may be higher than 0.7.x as there's some other structural changes happening that should not affect API.

Web Assets

Traditionally, Fedora has been pushing bits from its various servers to people's browsers in an ad-hoc fashion, and issues surrounding JavaScript have been swept under the rug. This change proposal provides a simple framework for shipping static web content and a way forward to treat JavaScript more closely to other code in the distribution.
