Fedora Packaging Committee Proposal

  • FESCo approved the FPC's proposal for withdrawing the JPackage naming exception.

Cut-off date for new packages requests in older branches

  • FESCo decided the cut-off for new F-(X-2) packages is when F-X goes gold. (For example, new F8 package requests will not be accepted after F10 goes gold). bpepple has updated the wiki to reflect this.


  • FESCo wants this feature, but it needs to go upstream first and not involve an alternative kernel package. dwmw2 offered to help Alexandre Oliva (lxo) work with upstream on this.
