Current status

  • Targeted release: Fedora 24
  • Last updated: 2015-11-09
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

This is a significant enabler for generating DVD media, other ISOs, and images more efficiently. It also allows other tools such as mash or pungi to offload much of the heavy-lifting to the build system. Longer term, we may be able to reduce the number of tools needed to manufacture Fedora releases.

Benefit to Fedora

The benefit to Release Engineering should be self-evident: less tools, hosts, and services to maintain. This opens the door a little to let a small set of users generate their own signed repositories from Koji if they want to as well. This may be useful for QA testing.

Scope

  • Proposal owners: Jay Greguske
  • Release engineering: This feature does require coordination with release engineering (e.g. changes to installer image generation or update package delivery.)
