So here's a very quick and informal blocker status mail:
There are four accepted blockers.
#1462825 doesn't look like it should be particularly difficult for the
right people to fix - i.e. folks who know libreport and anaconda's
interface with it. We just need to make sure we have their eyes on it;
I've attempted to CC all appropriate people.
We have an approach for fixing #1449752 agreed and it just needs the
maintainer to go ahead and do it. I've tried to explain the urgency of
this in the bug this afternoon.
#1436873 is in a state of slight disagreement about whether it's really
happening, I think. ;) The openQA test is still failing quite often
(although not always). I will try and reproduce the issue manually
tomorrow, since there appears to be scepticism among the KDE folks. But
in general the KDE folks are quite fast to fix issues once we do pin
them down specifically, I would be quite optimistic about getting this
#1404285 is a GNOME crash quite a lot of people seem to be encountering
in different ways (possibly because it's a tracker issue and tracker is
hooked into lots of things). In at least some cases it causes GNOME as
a whole to crash back to GDM, which is of course bad. There are various
different reproduction steps documented in the bug. I'm hoping the
desktop team is looking at this, and will be able to provide us with
some more assessment.
There are five proposed blockers. My professional guesstimate *at this
point* is that at least four of them will probably be rejected, though
that could change with more data (attention pjones: if #1418360 and
#1451071 are more serious than they seem to us so far, please do let us
know). #1462444 is the most unclear one, but it doesn't seem like a lot
of people are running into it, and we may wind up rejecting it also on
Given the holiday situation, it might make sense to do a blocker
meeting tomorrow (Thursday) or Friday, depending on how much notice
folks need, to give us at least a shot at doing an RC on Friday or over
the weekend, if all the accepted blockers happen to get resolved.
There are also a *ton* of proposed FEs for broken dependencies; we
might also want to blow through those quickly at a meeting.
Given the urgency of the situation, please schedule a blocker meeting for
today (formally or informally).
