FPC Fonts Policy

Using Matt Domsch's "doesn't rebuild" bugs as AWOL detection

  • FESCo though this was a good idea to pursue, and f13 is going to work on a proposal.

When to drop orphan packages

  • Packages that are orphaned during a release, will be dropped one month after that release. Ex. packages orphaned during F7 will be dropped from Rawhide one month after F8 is released.

More frequent conflicts testing, with bugs filed

  • FESCo thought this was a good idea, and f13 will work on this along with his rebuild proposal.

F9 Feature Process


  • FESCo denied a request for xfce4-modemlights-plugin to have a F6 branch created, since F6 goes EOL in a little over a week,
