[rfe] info about fedora in http header
Last modified: 2017-01-11 11:21:24 EST
It appears that our three products will be all drawing from the same "Everything" tree on the mirrors, at least for F21 and probably for F22.
With this plan, there is no way for us to easily count how many of which product are in use. It would be nice if dnf would either send a custom http header which we could log to mirror manager, or set the user agent, or something, based on the presence of fedora-release-workstation, fedora-release-server, fedora-release-cloud — or the absence of any of these.
Hi, we could do that but we have to solve more urgent bugs now.
Hi Jan. This is actually fairly high priority for Fedora overall, as this is essential to our overall promotion and marketing strategy. Thanks!
Hello Matt. I think Jan could have phrased his comment better. Rest assured that we fully recognize the importance of this feature for Fedora and we do plan to deliver it as soon as possible. However, now we need to focus on things that block dnf from being default in Fedora. The justification for this decision is that the benefits of this feature would be significantly reduced without dnf being on as many systems as possible.
Thanks Jan. I'm going to e-mail the yum devel list about coming up with a solution for F21, and then presumably that will need to be ported forward into F22.
Although we'll also want something for software-center-based package management in F21 -- I'm not actually even sure of the details of how that works. Hmmm; where is the best place to coordinate all of this?

Let's try the thread you started on yum-devel mailing list. I believe all the stakeholders are subscribed there.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
