Hi friends of Modularity,
as FESCo has approved  high level schedule for F27 Modular Server
release , I would like to open a question of a detailed schedule
for this release.
Thinking of it, I do not thing we need the whole bunch of detailed
schedules we use for standard release cycle , however there are
some tasks which might still be useful. Particularly I was thinking of
= Beta & Final Freezes =
Typically we use the Freeze period for "code" as well as for rel-eng
tooling and infrastructure. Having the rush in Modularity on my mind,
I do not thing 2 weeks of Freeze will be beneficial here. However I
believe 1 week of Freeze might still be beneficial to give QA a chance
to request RC on something stable in stable environment. On the other
side the Freeze might clash with module mashing support in bodhi
= Artwork deadline =
Is there any special artwork (wallpapers, splash screens, ...)
expected to be delivered as part of the F27 Modular server release ?
If so, then I would like to have some deadline when the artwork will
be finished and packed to avoid misunderstanding in planning the work
for Design team.
= Documentation & Translations =
I expect we are going to deliver a special/modified documentation for
the Modular release. What are the plans for translations ? If there is
a plan to have the documentation translated, we need to agree on
handover of the documentation to Translation team and wrap it with
= Web pages & Translations =
And again, what are the plans for translations ? If there is a plan to
have the web pages translated, we need to agree on some time period to
give to Translation team and wrap it with some deadlines.
= Fedora 25 EOL =
There is a plan to make F25 release EOL on 2017-11-21. How we are
going to deal with it ? I see 2 options:
1) make F25 EOL on 2017-11-21
2) make F25 EOL 4+ weeks after the F27 Modular Server is release
(currently planned for 2017-12-26+ )
3) Just in case anyone will ask whether we can decouple F25 Server
edition support and support only this edition for another month or so,
my answer is that I can not imagine how to do this and I see this as
contra-productive. So, no, this is not an option.
I would be happy see comments, answers and proposals on these (or
other) milestones we need to have, to control the F27 Modular Server
Thanks and Regards,

Currently, AFAIK, the suggested method to upload new sources for a
package is using 'fedpkg new-sources' which uploads new sources from
your local system. I wonder if there is a method to upload new sources
from a URL rather than your local filesystem? It is specially useful for
Hi, we'll be heavily focusing on F27 Beta testing and I don't know about
any urgent topic to discuss, so I propose we cancel this meeting. If you
have any topics, please send them to test list and we'll discuss them there.

Kernel 4.13 was released this past weekend. This kernel has been
built for rawhide and is building for F27 as well. We will be
following the same upgrade procedure as in the past. F25 and F26
will get rebased to 4.13 after a few stable releases, typically
4.13.2 or 4.11.3 depending on how stable the kernel is. Upstream
does not give release dates for stable release but given past
timings, this will probably happen towards the end of September.
As always, if you have any questions please let me know.
Maybe this will help the team development or not , but is good to know .
This issue about security and hack, I got many changes and bad result :
- I run fedora on virtual box ;
- I got a grub error entry when I try to update the Fedora with dnf:
Problems can be see into this screenshots:

cable RJ45 to PC and provider router come with BNC cable input into router
, no wireless on this desktop .
I used karpersky antivirus and not bad report from antivirus.
Can you improve Fedora or how to fix that ?
