Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2012-11-01 16:43:32 EDT
Nominating as NTH for F18 Beta; it's a security bug in kernel, that's on the path that can't be fixed entirely by an update (vuln will still be in installer and live images).
Comment 7 Jaroslav Reznik 2012-11-01 16:47:43 EDT
+1 to NTH as it's security issue and can't be fixed by update.
Comment 8 J├│hann B. Gu├░mundsson 2012-11-01 17:23:36 EDT
+1 to NTH as it's security issue and can't be fixed in the installer without updating the kernel there.
Comment 9 Tim Flink 2012-11-01 17:30:11 EDT
+1 F18 beta NTH as it's a security issue that can't be fixed in the installer or livecds with an update

That makes +4 (assuming +1 from Adam), moving to AcceptedNTH
Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2012-11-08 04:42:43 EST
We have a much newer kernel stable now. Closing. (Bodhi closing of bugs when updates go stable is currently broken).
