there are a ton of builds from 2018-05-02 which are still not in
updates-testing and given the amount of builds and packages download
them manually is not really a solution
why does it take so long @fedora to get whatever builds out where in
case of important updates CentOS is always a lot faster (openssl and such)
This started happening in F27 and the upgrade to F28 did not fix it.
The process /usr/bin/python3 /usr/bin/dnfdragora-updater is running but nothing is
showing in the systray and "System Tray Settings --> Entries" has no dnfdragora entry.
Suggestion as how to troubleshoot?
Conjecture is just a conclusion based on incomplete information. It isn't a fact.

I recently noticed that when using Kompare to check file differences, that when I have Kompare apply differences, then save, the changed file has file permissions changed to 0600. My umask is set to 0002.
Is there a configuration file where I can cause it to stop changing file permissions?
I am on a fully updated Fedora 27 workstation.
QA is trying to consolidate target sizes for all images built by Fedora into a single document that we can easily check, in a response to one of blocking images being oversize again . The document of choice is this wiki page . In a newly added column, the target size of each release-blocking image will be documented. (It can also contain target sizes of non-blocking images, but our major focus is on the blocking ones, of course). The target size will be a blocker for Fedora Final releases.
The target sizes for KDE image are currently considered  as follows:
KDE Live 2 GB
We'd like you to think over whether this is still correct, decide on new numbers if needed, and then write it down into the document . (If you decide to change it in the future, notifying us at the same time is very appreciated.)
We'd like to avoid the situation when the image goes oversize and the target size is simply bumped, because it adds delays to the release process. So please think ahead and choose a size that you really want to keep and block on it (You can of course also choose to have no=unlimited target size).
QA suggests you choose a 4.7 GB target size (single-layer single-side DVD). The current 2 GB size was chosen probably because 2 GB flash drives were common for giveaways in the past. The technology has moved on and such small sizes are probably not common anymore.
I tried KDE/Wayland on F27 about 6 weeks ago and found that some programs worked and others didn't, so I reverted to Xorg.
I installed F28 Sunday night (2 days ago) and I was hopeful, so I gave it another go. I think it is good enough to use now. After 2 days, I have not switched back. There are a few pesky problems. At first, I kept getting LibreOffice without a frame, so I couldn't resize the window.. I installed breeze-gtk and I also rebooted, so I'm not sure what did it, but I think it works fine now.
The biggest problem so far is the clipboard. Again, in LibreOffice, I was unable to cut and paste. As I type here, though, ctrl-c, ctrl-v and ctrl-z are working. Still, when I check the clipboard widget,there is nothing there. I have it configured as per default, not to synchronize the selection and the clipboard. So, using this setup of having the clipboard and the selection separate, how do I ever get anything into the clipboard?
Anyway, while I haven't done much yet, other than installing and configuring the system, and some browsing, I think I can use KDE with Wayland now. It has taken a long time, compared to Gnome, to get to this point, but I am glad we have finally arrived.
Any experiences or thoughts I need to watch for?
