Comment 1 Adam Williamson 2013-11-27 18:57:04 UTC
Discussed at 2013-11-27 freeze exception review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-11-27/f20-blocker-review-3.2013-11-27-17.01.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception issue: this isn't critical but it can't be fixed post-release as it's about the installer's behaviour, and it would be good to fix things so people can change systemwide keyboard layouts post-install correctly. Mike's test gives us confidence that the change is correct.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2013-12-05 05:18:01 UTC
So, I've just realized an unfortunate consequence of this change: I think we're going to break keymap in initramfs during fedup *again*, for yet *another* different reason. For F20-to-F21, not F19-to-F20. Filed as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1038413 .
