Description Kay Sievers 2012-11-30 06:03:14 EST
Fedora is migrating away from:
 /etc/sysconfig/network (the HOSTNAME=... setting)
 /etc/sysconfig/keyboard
 /etc/sysconfig/i18n
to:
 /etc/hostname
 /etc/vconsole.conf
 /etc/locale.conf

See the tracker bug 881785 for details.

We found:
 lang.py: f = open(instroot + "/etc/sysconfig/i18n", "w+")

Please update the package for the new config files.

The old files are converted and deleted from the system at update time.
If reading the old files is still supported, please make sure they are
never created again.

Thanks!

Removed.  To the best of my knowledge, nothing is even using this method.  Also, pykickstart's really not the best place for this information.
