Hello Zbyszek. My question is about "default modular streams" i.e.
about the automatically enabled modular streams filtering
non-modular content out of dnf transactions. The thing that is
prohibited in Fedora.
Hmmm, that is not how I understood the terminology. I _think_ we were
using the terms differently in the past. But I see I got this one
wrong, and "default module stream" is the most commonly used name and
has been for a while. So please disregard my objection. I'll reply to
Josh's mail separately.
There is no "the stream of a module to use when a different one
not explicitly selected" concept in current modularity without also
having "modules enabled by default". I would love to have that
instead, but we don't.
I meant this:
$ sudo dnf module enable sway
Enabling module streams:
Is this ok [y/N]:
I thought 'rolling' is specified as default stream to pick, but it
seems not. It's just the only one, so dnf picks it without asking.
Somehow this got cross-wired in my brain with default module profiles.
Sorry for the noise.
