I can see that thunderbird 24 had been built successfully and then
reverted on the fc18 branch (and others). The git commit log and the
spec changelog say
Revert to 17.0.8
and nothing else. I do understand that more than a "successful build" is
necessary for a package to be pushed, but can we please agree on putting
some substantial information on "why" (not just "what") into the git log
or change log?
As a guidance, in many git based project, the following standard for git
messages has proven useful:
1st line: short description of "what"
1st paragraph: long description of "what" along the lines of:
So far, "foo" does "bar". Change "froz" so that it does "baz".
2nd paragraph (or mixed in with 2nd): answer "why"
The problem with "bar" is this. "baz" solves the problem by doing that.
This information could also be in bugzilla and linked to from the git
log or changelog, of course. All of this is easier than answering
e-mails or posts, and better for record keeping anyways.
The Fedora 20 Virt Test Day is this coming Tuesday, October 8th. Check out the
test day landing page:
If you're interested in trying out some new virt functionality, there's step
by step instructions for:
* Snapshot UI in virt-manager
* Running ARM VMs on x86 with libvirt/virt-manager
* Libvirt ACLs for granting a user access to only a single VM
Even if you aren't interested in testing new features, we still need you! The
test day is the perfect time to make sure your virt workflow is working fine
on Fedora 20, as there will be several developers on hand to answer any
questions, help with debugging, provide patches, etc. No requirement to run
through test cases on the wiki, just show up and let us know what works (or
If you can't make the date of the test day, adding test case results to the
wiki anytime next week is fine as well. Though if you do plan on showing up to
the test day, add your name to the participant list on the wiki, and when the
day arrives, pop into #fedora-test-day on freenode and give us a shout!
