  • The QA:SOP_blocker_bug_process and QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process pages describe the general processes for handling blocker and freeze exception bugs
  • Criteria for considering a bug to be a blocker to be added to a release tracker are set in the release criteria page for each public release (Beta and Final)
  • Fedora creates a series of tracker bugs at the beginning of each new release cycle for two release cycles in advance
    • For example, at the release of Fedora 40, Fedora 42 Blocker and Freeze Exception bugs were created. At the release of Fedora 41, Fedora 43 Blocker and Freeze Exception bugs will be created, etc.
  • The tracker bugs for each release are closed when that release goes stable
  • 'Dynamic' - unversioned - tracker aliases are applied to the bugs for the next pending release, and transfer after each release


When a release is signed off

Use the script, Luke
There is a script you can use to make all the changes documented here with a single command. For instructions on using the script, see below.

As soon as possible after a release is signed off at the Go_No_Go_Meeting and all open blocker issues are resolved (which may happen after the "go" decision in some special cases), the blocker and freeze exception tracker bugs for that release should be closed with the resolution CURRENTRELEASE, and the unversioned 'dynamic' aliases should be removed from them and applied to the tracker bugs for the next release.

At the same time, tracker bugs should be created for the next-but-one release:

  • FXXBetaBlocker (must fix prior to Beta release)
  • FXXBetaFreezeException (freeze exception fixes for Beta release)
  • FXXFinalBlocker (must fix prior to Final)
  • FXXFinalFreezeException (freeze exception fixes for Final)
  1. Record new tracker bugs in the section Current Tracker Bugs above
  2. Update the table for the trackers for the next release to include the 'dynamic' aliases
  3. Move the table for the trackers from the just-finished release down to the Past Tracker Bugs section
  4. Update the blockerbugs webapp: create the next-but-one release in the Release tab, and create the milestones in the Milestone tab, following the naming conventions and so forth of the existing milestones, and entering the correct blocker and freeze exception bug IDs

Tracker bugs should be created with the following attributes:

  1. Product Fedora
  2. Component distribution
  3. Summary Fedora (release) (milestone) (type) bug tracker (e.g. Fedora 41 Beta blocker bug tracker)
  4. Version rawhide
  5. URL set as the URL to QA:SOP_blocker_bug_process or QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process, as appropriate
  6. Description can be copied/pasted and edited from the previous release (but just use the script! Don't do this manually!)
  7. Alias corresponding to the blocker and release. For example
    • Fedora 42 Beta would be: F42BetaBlocker
    • Fedora 42 Beta Freeze Exception would be: F42BetaFreezeException
    • Fedora 43 Final Blocker would be: F43FinalBlocker
    • Fedora 43 Final Freeze Exception would be: F43FinalFreezeException
  8. Keyword Tracking

After each milestone release

  • After the Beta release, move any remaining open bugs on the Beta freeze exception tracker to the Final freeze exception tracker
  • After the Final release, set any remaining open bugs on the Final freeze exception tracker to no longer block any of these tracker bugs
  • After each milestone release, update the blockerbugs webapp: make sure the next three milestones are marked as 'active', and the next milestone is marked as 'current'.


The 'dynamic' aliases - the aliases without version numbers:

  • BetaBlocker
  • BetaFreezeException
  • FinalBlocker
  • FinalFreezeException

should always be applied to the next pending release. Right now, they should be applied to Fedora 41.

  • A bugzilla query reporting all tracker bugs is here
Tracker bugs--commonly referred to as blocker bugs--are meta-bugs used to monitor a group of bugs that must be resolved before a specific release milestone and are therefore considered to block the release.
Aliases provide the ability to refer to a particular bugzilla by a user-defined term rather than the bug number. Some people find it easier to remember aliases rather than bug numbers.


The script can be used to perform all the required actions at the time of a release being completed. It will close the tracker bugs for that release and remove the dynamic aliases from them, apply the dynamic aliases to the tracker bugs for the next release, create the tracker bugs for the next-but-one release, and update the tables in this page appropriately. The script should be run just once per release, right when the release is signed off, with the release number as its sole argument. For example, when Fedora 41 is completed, the script should be run as updatetrackers 41. The script requires Package-x-generic-16.pngpython3-mwclient and Package-x-generic-16.pngpython3-bugzilla, and you must have a Bugzilla account (and probably editbugs privileges) and a Fedora (wiki) account to use it.
