At yesterday's F29 Go/No-Go meeting, we discussed the blocker status
of BZ #1628192 - Fedora 29 installation cannot see a firmware RAID
device. While the blocker criteria clearly states that this should be
a blocker for Beta, many of the people present at the meeting
disagreed, for a variety of reasons.
* Hardware supporting fwraid is considerably less pervasive than it
was when the criterion was written
* Testing this criterion can only be done with install media, which
limits our testing pool to the very dedicated members of Fedora QA.
Yes, anyone *can* download a nightly compose and try it, but in
practice this tends to be limited to the core testers. The majority of
testing that this feature will get will tend to happen as people try
out the Beta release.
To that end, I'd like to propose that we make the following change to
the criteria going forward:
"The blocking criterion for successful installation atop a firmware
RAID array is moved to the GA release criteria."
The contribution guide thingamajig told me to post a short message
here. So as follows: I am Carmen from Friesland, The Netherlands. I am
currently working on GNOME to make the GNOME desktop available in
Esperanto. At the current rate, GNOME 3.32 will have its core release
(standard apps, core libraries) completely translated into Esperanto,
which I am fairly proud of :-)
Furthermore, I am a former intern of the Free Software Foundation Europe
where I worked on the REUSE Initiative (<https://reuse.software/>;). You
can find me at the FSFE booth at SFScon in Bozen/Bolzano, 16 November.
I am joining this list to make sure that `langpacks-eo` will become
available in Fedora 30. If someone knows some pointers for me there
while I (slowly) work on it, I would greatly appreciate those.
Thanks and with kindness,
Just FYI, I intend to relicense fontpackages from LGPL3+ to GPL3+, to
make sharing parts with go-macros easier.
Since fontpackages only contains templates and scripts and is not linked
anywhere there is no practical difference.
If you see a problem with this change, or have contributed to
fontpackages to the past and do not like this change, please say so now.
During Fedora Workstation 29 installation there are some banners being
shown like the ones on
In the svg code i see some of the banners are translate into multiple
I would like to translate the banners for a more complete translation of
the installer but where are the instructions/translations?
With RHEL 7.6 out, a new version of Xorg has been delivered, which made xorgxrdp package that I maintain binary incompatible. Given that build overrides are not possible with EPEL (AFAIK), could someone with enough privileges please update the build environment for rhel7.
