= Proposed System Wide Change: Modules for Everyone =
* Stephen Gallagher <sgallagh at fedoraproject dot org>
* Langdon White <langdon at fedoraproject dot org>
All Fedora installations will have modular repositories enabled by default,
previously available, by default, only to Server Edition.
== Detailed description ==
In Fedora 28, the Server Edition debuted new modular functionality,
allowing end-users access to alternative versions of popular software. Due
to technical limitations with package-management software, it was not
available for non-Server deployments of Fedora. Beginning with Fedora 29,
all installations of Fedora will have modules available for installation
and update. This will be done by merging the `fedora-repos-modular`
sub-package back into the `fedora-repos` package.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
The proposal owners need to coordinate the work of the DNF team and
release-engineering to make sure that the repo subpackage merge only
happens once the libdnf enhancements are stable. We will also need to
prepare and run a Fedora Test Day with the QA team.
* Other developers:
The DNF team is already committed to providing the necessary changes for
libdnf in Fedora 29.
* Release engineering:
** List of deliverables:
All Fedora installations
* Policies and guidelines:
No alterations to packaging guidelines are required specifically for this
* Trademark approval:
