We in QA community usually call the individuals that test and file
bug reports "reporters" but since you guys are trying to handle your
own QA coverage you might call them something else and based on your
We aren't handling our own QA coverage.
response you seem to be not interesting in have people test kernel
on GA release ahead of time or are planning to handle that
differently in your own process otherwise this being broken would
have mattered the kernel community.
It's unfortunate, but there isn't much that can be done. It's rare that
things change in the kernel that prevent it from being installed on
older releases, but it does happen. You can install it on F19, which as
of today is a GA release. If Harald includes kernel-install in the F18
version of systemd, we can adjust the requirements there too.
