This page describes house keeping tasks related to Fedora 11 in the Red Hat Bugzilla.

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 10, Fedora 11, and Fedora 12. 
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.

Rawhide Rebase

Warning to Package Maintainers

  • Send to fedora-devel-announce@redhat.com at least two weeks before mass change date FIXME: mailing list probably on fp.o by then

Ahh, the leaves are changing, it's getting cold (at least here in the
Northern Hemisphere!), and snow is just around the corner! All of this
brings a new release of Fedora! And with each new Fedora release comes
some Bugzilla housekeeping. This e-mail is designed to let you know
about two things happening around '''Release Date''' (release of Fedora
11) and what you need to do, if anything.

1. We will be rebasing all rawhide bugs to F11. 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, which will stay open in rawhide 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 EOL releases (at this point, Fedora 9) will get a
comment on or about GA of Fedora 11, explaining that one month of
maintenance remains, and to either move the bug 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: TBD
  • Query to select bugs: query
  • User making changes & comments: fedora-triage-list@redhat.com FIXME: list probably on fp.o by then
  • Send one email notification
  • Actions to take on all bugs selected in query above:
    1. Add comment

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 '''EOL Date'''. 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.
