Fedora 29 Accepted Self Contained Changes Proposals

These changes have been accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee for the Fedora 29 Release as Self Contained Changes.

Ansible python3 default

Ansible started out as a python2 only application, but in recent years a large amount of work has gone into porting things to python3. Last year, the Fedora ansible package started shipping a ansible-python3 allowing users to switch to python3 on the control host easily if they wished, but left the default as python2. Now in Fedora 29, the default will be switched and the python3 version will be the only version shipped.

MySQL 8

  • Last updated: 2018-05-28
  • Completed: no - #1582618

No more automagic Python bytecompilation

The current way of automatic Python byte-compiling of files outside Python-specific directories is too magical and error-prone. It is built on heuristics that are increasingly wrong. We will provide a way to opt-out of it and adjust the guidelines to prefer explicit bytecompilation of such files. Later, the old behavior will be opt-in only or will cease to exist.

OpenLDAP: Drop MozNSS Compatibility Layer

Since Fedora 28, OpenLDAP is compiled with OpenSSL instead of NSS and includes MozNSS Compatiblity Layer (i.e. TLSMC) to assure backwards compatiblity. After this change the TLSMC will be removed.

  • Last updated: 2018-03-19
  • Completed: no - #1557967

True Noarch Erlang Packages

Erlang packages are currently all installed into %{_libdir}/erlang/lib, despite most of them being noarch packages. This proposal is to modify Erlang to search %{_datadir}/erlang/lib in addition to %{_libdir}/erlang/lib when searching for dependencies.
