This template records what is considered to be the 'current' compose nominated for testing by Fedora QA: either a test compose or release candidate, or a Rawhide or Branched nightly compose. It is updated automatically by relval when the
compose sub-command is used with the
--current option. It can be edited by hand so long as the slightly complex format is kept.
When called with no parameter, the parameter, or an invalid parameter, it will return the 'full' version of the compose currently nominated for testing - something like 22 Alpha TC1 for a TC/RC, or 22 20141208 for a nightly compose:
22 Rawhide 20141208
It can be called with various parameters:, , , :
It can be used in various ways;
relval report-results uses it to guess the compose for which the user most likely wants to report results, and the validation testing instruction template uses it to display a note on result pages that are not for the current compose, warning that they are not for the current compose and linking to it, for example.
