Benefit to Fedora

Fedora stays in sync with upstream.

Scope

  • Proposal owners:
    • Keep existing GNOME packages updated
    • Follow upstream module changes
    • Package new applications and new dependencies of existing GNOME packages for GNOME 3.24
  • Other developers: N/A
  • Release engineering: N/A
  • Policies and guidelines: N/A
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)

Upgrade/compatibility impact

Upgrading from GNOME 3.22 to 3.24 should not have a major impact.

How To Test

Generic 'desktop testing' is always appropriate for a major new desktop version.

User Experience

Notable additions or changes to the GNOME user experience in 3.24 include:

  • TBD

Dependencies

N/A

Contingency Plan

GNOME 3.24 will be released in March 2016 and fits well into Fedora 26 schedule. In case of issues with individual modules that aren't either released in time or aren't deemed suitable for Fedora 26, we'll continue using the GNOME 3.22 versions of these modules.

  • Contingency mechanism: The Workstation WG evaluates the GNOME 3.24 prerelease before F26 beta freeze and reverts individual changes as needed.
  • Contingency deadline: beta freeze
  • Blocks release? No
