= Proposed System Wide Change: Node.js 10.x as default Node.js interpreter =
* Stephen Gallagher <sgallagh at redhat dot com>
A major upgrade to the newest LTS release of Node.js for Fedora 29.
== Detailed description ==
Node.js releases a new LTS version each year and will support it for
around 18 months, which makes it the ideal candidate for use with
Fedora. Node.js 10.x was released recently and is already available as
a module for Fedora 28 and Fedora 29. This Change proposal is to make
10.x the default version shipped with Fedora 29.
== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
Node.js SIG will need to upgrade the `nodejs` package in Fedora 29 to
10.x (the same package as is available in modules for F28)Node.js SIG
will need to update any `nodejs-*` packages in Fedora 29 if they
require changes to run on Node.js 10.x, or else retire those that no
* Other developers:
As this is a major update to a language interpreter, packagers of
Node.js modules will need to test that their software remains
* Release engineering:
The upgrade *may* require a side-tag while updating the `nodejs-*`
packages. This is not yet certain.
