I am now placing the following criterion into the 21 Final criteria:
"The installer must be able to install into free space alongside an
existing OS X installation, install and configure a bootloader that will
boot Fedora; if the boot menu presents OS X entries, they must boot OS
X. Installing Fedora must not inhibit the system's ability to boot OS X
from the UEFI boot manager."
as no-one seemed to object to my proposal to ensure we don't break the
bootability of OS X from the UEFI boot manager. Thanks folks!
If we're not currently meeting this requirement, please do propose the
relevant bug(s) as Final blocker(s).
