Rawhide Rebase Warning to Package Maintainers

  • Send the message bellow to devel-announce@lists.fedoraproject.org
Greetings,

This e-mail is intended to inform you about the upcoming Bugzilla changes
happening on 2017-08-15 (Rawhide bug rebase) and what you need to do, if anything.

We will be automatically changing the version for most rawhide bugs to Fedora 27.
This will result in regular bugs reported against rawhide during the Fedora 27
development cycle being changed to version ‘27' instead of their current
assignment, ‘rawhide’.  This is to align with the branching of Fedora 27 from
rawhide and to more accurately tell where in the lineage of releases the bug was
last reported.

Note that this procedure does not apply to bugs that are open for the ‘Package
Review’ or 'kernel' components or bugs that have the ''FutureFeature'' or ''Tracking'' keywords
set. These will stay open as rawhide bugs indefinitely.

If you do not want your bugs changed to version ‘27‘, add the ''FutureFeature''
keyword. If you need help changing a large amount of bugs manually, we’d be glad
to help.

The process was re-approved by FESCo https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/1096 .

Comment Text

This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '25'.

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.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 25 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, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

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.
