This message is a reminder that Fedora 22 Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable) is on 2015-02-24 [1].

At this point, all accepted Changes should be substantially complete, and testable. Additionally, if a change is to be enabled by default, it must be so enabled at Change Completion deadline.

This bug should be set at least to the MODIFIED state to indicate that it achieved completeness. Status will be provided to FESCo right after the deadline. If, for any reasons, your Change is not in required state, let me know and we will try to find solution. Fedora 22 is going to be strictly time based release. For Changes you decide to cancel/move to the next release, please use the NEW status and set needinfo on me and it will be acted upon. 

In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask Wrangler (jreznik). Thank you.

This change proposal targets two languages fonts.
1. Odia 
2. Telugu 

Odia has been done in upstream but Telugu is still not done.

I want to update scope of this Change proposal and only want to continue with Lohit Odia. Telugu does not looks possible in F22 timeline presently. 

Hope so that is fine.

Yep, it's fine. Just change the Change page to reflect it and set this bug do MODIFIED. Thanks!

Hi Pravin, we'd like to include this change in the Fedora 22 Beta Release Notes.

I wrote a draft of the release note in the Doc Text field; please review the text and let me know if you'd like to add or change anything. Note that I'm not familiar with Indian languages or localization in general, so I might have got something wrong...
