Fedora 32 Accepted System-Wide Changes

These changes have been accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee for the Fedora 32 Release as System-Wide Changes.

DNF Better Counting

Right now, we estimate installed Fedora systems by counting unique IP addresses which show up in our updates mirror statistics. We need better data than that. There are some proposals for more complicated systems, but a quick thing we can do now to greatly improve what we have without a gigantic new infrastructure.

Retire Python 2

The python2 package and all its subpackages will be removed from Fedora 32. A legacy python27 package for developers and users will be provided. All packages in Fedora that need Python 2 to run will be removed from Fedora 32 regardless of their dependencies. All packages in Fedora that need Python 2 to build will be removed from Fedora 32 regardless of their dependencies. Exceptions can be granted by FESCo.

Track Changes in Taiga

The current process allows contributors to propose changes in upcoming Fedora releases. However, the management of those feature proposals is cumbersome and requires several manual steps. This introduces more opportunity for error and reduces the time available to the Change Wrangler for more valuable contributions to Fedora. In particular, the current process includes artifacts and discussion in the Fedora Wiki, on mailing lists, FESCo tickets, Bugzilla tickets, and Docs tickets.

Limit Scriptlet Usage of core packages

Remove direct scriptlet calls from "core packages" (those that are used to build minimal container image). The packages can still affect changes during installation by placing files in the correct locations to trigger registered external programs.
