I'm here in my capacity as manager of the DNF team.
Probably everyone who reads this mailing list is aware that DNF05 has been
in development for a while and that we planned to introduce it as the
default (replacing DNF) with the upcoming Fedora 39 release.
I'm sure some of you have also seen the recent FESCo ticket and discussion
concerning its readiness and whether or not to invoke the contingency plan
for shipping DNF05 in F39, since there is still a substantial amount of
We've gone ahead and decided not to replace DNF with DNF05 in Fedora 39
and, perhaps notably, Fedora 40 as well. Fedora 41 is the safest option at
With a core system component like DNF, it's crucial that we provide a
stable, complete, and thoroughly tested experience to everyone. In its
current state, we would not be able to deliver that. With more time, we'll
be able to regain our footing and do things properly. Furthermore, this
team, which has worked tirelessly over these last several months
especially, will be able to avoid burnout. This was not an easy decision to
make, but it is the best decision for the team, for this project, and for
I want to close on a positive note and commend my team for the incredible
amount of hard work they have poured into this project thus far, as well as
people we've been collaborating with and who have been testing and offering
feedback. We have more test days planned and will continue to operate
transparently as we proceed through development.

Trying to figure out what has changed in Fedora land that causes NTFS
corruption for some time. This is with default workstation with GNOME
Shell auto-mounting external storage media when plugging them in.
A ticket in bugzilla suggests there has been a changed from ntfs-3g to ntfs3:
( udisks switched to kernel ntfs3 driver instead of ntfs-3g for mounting ntfs since the kernel 6.2 update )
The current state of development is highly dangerous.
As part of the Fedora Asahi SIG work, libimobiledevice and libplist are
The libplist update introduces an soname bump from 3 to 4:
