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:ChangeAcceptedF20 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).

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.

Fedora 20 Accepted Self Contained Changes Proposals

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

Category:ChangeAcceptedF20 and Category:SelfContainedChange

ACPICA Tools Update

For developers working with the ACPI subsystem, there are tools available from the reference implementation at http://www.acpica.org. These tools have been restructured over time and the current Fedora packages as a result contain either outdated versions or do not make available a complete set of tools. We propose an acpica-tools package that replaces both the existing iasl package and the the existing pmtools package in order to make all current tools available, and make it more straightforward in the future to keep them up-to-date.
