IIRC we aren't blocking on LUC currently -- so whether this means
reviving old criteria or creating new ones, that needs to be clear.
Actually we are, though we have been known to handwave it a little:
"Release-blocking live and dedicated installer images must boot when
written to optical media of an appropriate size (if applicable) and
when written to a USB stick with any of the officially supported
it's the first footnote to "Release-blocking images must boot", titled
"Supported media types". So the official rule is that we block on all
three 'officially supported methods' - dd-style write, litd, and luc.
There's a bunch of wiggle room in terms of exactly how well we expect
luc to work, and what exactly it means to 'block a release' on
something that is not part of the release, but the criterion is there.
OTOH, the functions of LUC are pretty well constrained. So maybe
isn't too large a change.
What would actually be an *improvement* is if we killed litd and luc's
'cp mode', and only supported the new dd-only luc and dd-style writes.
That would substantially reduce the exposure we currently have to three
different writing modes: dd, litd, and luc-cp.
