So... there is a pretty big disparity between what you just said and
what FESCo has been told in the past two meetings. Jan has been
trying to get release blocking deliverables for the Cloud WG (now
Atomic?) confirmed for a while . Two weeks ago, Kushal confirmed
the existing base images are release blocking and Atomic is not. That
was repeated in today's meeting as well:
16:44:56 <kushal> Cloud base image is the only blocking deliverable.
16:44:59 <kushal> Atomic is not.
I realize this WG is in the middle of rebooting itself, but to have
clearly conflicting information from the WG members is a bit
I will note that Atomic is not delivered as part of the relase at all. it is
only delivered as a stable artifact via the two week atomic host release
process. So there is no possible way it can be release blocking, there seems
to be some major confusion and disconnect here.
