As everyone knows, the KDE Plasma desktop is a release-blocking
artifact for Fedora releases. KDE is important to us, and we don't want
to go out the door with it broken.
But, there's a problem that's coming up more and more. One of the
release criteria is that all of the default applications need to have
their basic functionality tested.* This is particularly a problem with
KDE, because the SIG has decided to ship so many applications
(apparently three web browswers, now).
I'd like to propose that we either:
1) significantly reduce the number of default apps to a more managable
2) remove this particular blocking test from KDE in particular.
In either case, it would really be helpful to have more release-time
validation of shipped applications from the KDE sig.

In another system I get this:
# dnf upgrade
Problem 1: cannot install the best update candidate for package kajongg-16.12.3-2.fc27.noarch
- nothing provides python3-twisted >= 16.6.0 needed by kajongg-17.12.2-2.fc28.noarch
Skipping packages with broken dependencies:
kajongg noarch 17.12.2-2.fc28 fedora 4.7 M
there are a ton of builds from 2018-05-02 which are still not in
updates-testing and given the amount of builds and packages download
them manually is not really a solution
why does it take so long @fedora to get whatever builds out where in
case of important updates CentOS is always a lot faster (openssl and such)
This started happening in F27 and the upgrade to F28 did not fix it.
The process /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/dnfdragora-updater is running but nothing is
showing in the systray and "System Tray Settings --> Entries" has no dnfdragora entry.
Suggestion as how to troubleshoot?
Conjecture is just a conclusion based on incomplete information. It isn't a fact.

Anyone else see this?

I recently noticed that when using Kompare to check file differences, that when I have Kompare apply differences, then save, the changed file has file permissions changed to 0600. My umask is set to 0002.
Is there a configuration file where I can cause it to stop changing file permissions?

QA is trying to consolidate target sizes for all images built by Fedora into a single document that we can easily check, in a response to one of blocking images being oversize again . The document of choice is this wiki page . In a newly added column, the target size of each release-blocking image will be documented. (It can also contain target sizes of non-blocking images, but our major focus is on the blocking ones, of course). The target size will be a blocker for Fedora Final releases.
The target sizes for KDE image are currently considered  as follows:
KDE Live 2 GB
We'd like you to think over whether this is still correct, decide on new numbers if needed, and then write it down into the document . (If you decide to change it in the future, notifying us at the same time is very appreciated.)
We'd like to avoid the situation when the image goes oversize and the target size is simply bumped, because it adds delays to the release process. So please think ahead and choose a size that you really want to keep and block on it (You can of course also choose to have no=unlimited target size).
QA suggests you choose a 4.7 GB target size (single-layer single-side DVD). The current 2 GB size was chosen probably because 2 GB flash drives were common for giveaways in the past. The technology has moved on and such small sizes are probably not common anymore.
