Description Ben Cotton 2022-05-17 14:17:06 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: Node.js 18.x by default
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Nodejs18

The latest release of Node.js to carry a 30-month lifecycle is the 18.x series. As with 16.x, 14.x, 12.x, 10.x and 8.x before it, Fedora 37 will carry 18.x as the default Node.js interpreter for the system. The 16.x, and 14.x interpreters will remain available as non-default module streams.

If you encounter a bug related to this Change, please do not comment here. Instead create a new bug and set it to block this bug.

The packaging work is done and it's just waiting for June 6th to make the cut over to 18.x.

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2022-08-09 16:02:52 UTC
Today we reached the Code Complete (Testable) milestone on the F37 schedule: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-37/f-37-key-tasks.html

At this time, all F37 Changes should be complete enough to be testable. You can indicate this by setting this tracker to the MODIFIED status. If the Change is 100% code complete, you can set the tracker to ON_QA. If you need to defer this Change to F38, please NEEDINFO me.

Changes that have not reached at least the MODIFIED status will be given to FESCo for evaluation of contingency plans.

nodejs-18 appears to be in the repo (although dist-git says the F37 version is a nonsensical nodejs- Setting to ON_QA.
