ARM Release Criteria Changes


Proposed changes to the Desktop release criteria for ARM and AArch64 in Fedora 32:

  • drop Xfce on 32-bit ARM from release blocking desktops
  • add Workstation on AArch64 to release blocking desktops


  • Name: Paul Whalen
  • Email:
  • Responsible WG: ARM SIG

Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 32
  • Last updated: 2020-02-07
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>
  • Release notes tracker: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

In Fedora 32 we will have a couple new additions to release blocking deliverables including IoT and CoreOS. In order to reduce the overall test coverage and release blocking desktops we propose no longer blocking on the 32-Bit ARM Xfce Desktop spin, and adding Workstation on AArch64 as a release blocking desktop.

Release blocking image changes:

  • Drop: Spins/armhfp/images/Fedora-Xfce-armhfp-_RELEASE_MILESTONE_-sda.raw.xz
  • Add: Workstation/aarch64/images/Fedora-Workstation-aarch64-_RELEASE_MILESTONE_-sda.raw.xz
