I believe that they should, because we should never break the ability for
people use Fedora as a base for something awesome. Projects that are Fedora
Remixes that want to use their own branding should be able to take it as a

Personally, I think with the productized Fedora release system now, we need
to fix up all the generic-* packages so that they have everything to
function properly. We don't have a generic-productimg package for Anaconda,
for example, which can create other issues. Heck, we don't even have a
I'm also uncertain of whether generic-logos is up to date enough to
function on modern Fedora releases, given that it's stuck back at Fedora 17.

In yesterday's QA meeting bug
was nominated as an
f23 final blocker. The group wasn't sure of the impact this would have on
remixes if it wasn't fixed before the release, so it was resolved to reject
blocker status for now (and the bug was fixed today, so this is moot) and
start a discussion with remix representatives.
In this particular bug, it wouldn't have been possible to install anaconda
and generic-release together on the same image. That might not actually
effect many remixes. The other big question is, would fixing
generic-release after the f23 release instead of blocking the release work
for remixes. Do remixes generally use just the release versions of packages
or do they pick up updates as well?
The release criteria that was proposed that the bug violated the spirit
of, but not the letter of is:
A fedora-release package containing the correct names, information and
repository configuration for a final Fedora release must be present on
release-blocking images and the appropriately versioned generic-release
package must be available in the release repository.
It was thought that for bug 1224561 to be considered a release blocker,
the above criteria would need to have been expanded to include some
functional criteria for generic-release beyond it just be present,
So what we are looking for is feedback from people doing remixes about
what they really need and when they need it?
