Ok. The change was previously accepted for Fedora 27.
I've edited and updated the previous trackers:
Will this be sufficient to restart the change acceptance process for
Although I'm not on FESCo my advice here is to treat it as a fresh
change and for the large part ignore the missed target of F27.
You're fortunate that Change is already written up so you're spared
redoing that effort and also that the contingency is known, and in
this case tested.
If steps are skipped then it risks other Changes in future adopting
the "we tried it for N-1 and it was approved in N-1 so we're good"
causing problems... and besides risks to be aware of will change from
release to release.
If we follow process each time, whether it was a missed target
previously or not, we ensure that there are no slip ups with missing
documentation or knock on effects that have not been considered.
In general if you have to ask the question "Will this be sufficient to
restart the change acceptance process for Fedora Next?" then
realistically the only suitable response is "check with FESCo, which
you'd have to do with any Change anyway".
