Hey folks, time for another F19 Final status update!

We're looking relatively hopeful at this point, but still some work to
be done.

Outstanding blockers

We need fixes for:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=924162 - "A software
selection with dependency errors is allowed to proceed if the dependency
check runs twice" - anaconda team (I know you're working on it)

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=958426 - "19 Final TC1
x86_64 Desktop Live is oversized (larger than 1 GB)" - desktop team (I
know you're working on it)

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=679486 - "Liveinst doesn't
start if hostname changes" - anaconda / X teams

Karma requests

We need karma for these blocker-bug-fixing-updates:


We also could do with karma for the following FE bugs, esp. grub2:



anaconda 19.30.9 is in TC6; if that's basically working for you, you can
+1 the update. glib2 is supposed to fix the bug that causes dconf
database corruption on unclean system shutdown: you can +1 it so long as
it doesn't cause any major breakage, but it'd be ideal if people could
verify the fix. The swell-foop etc. update fixes the direct F17->F19
upgrade path; should be testable by installing F17, ensuring gnome-games
is installed, and trying a fedup or yum upgrade with those packages
available. The upgrade should not fail on
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=976107 . The grub2 update
should fix editing wrapped lines in the edit mode -
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=976643 - that's kind of
important. The initial-setup update fixes a few bugs, just +1 it if TC6
installs other than GNOME work okay and i-s doesn't seem busted. The
PackageKit bug implements the stricter PolicyKit policy requested by
FESCo in https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/1115 ; you can +1 it so
long as PK stuff isn't broken, but ideally we should verify the policy
behaves as expected. PHP should just be +1ed if it works properly for
normal PHP stuff. lightdm should fix things so shutdown and restart
options are offered by lightdm (which is used by Xfce, MATE, Cinnamon
and Sugar spins). mate-power-manager should fix a bug where MATE was not
suspending on laptop lid close (not accepted as an FE yet, but worth
testing in case it is).

Thanks everyone!
