Kevin, Christoph,
is Xfce412 change considered to be completed? See above. If yes, please mark it as ON_QA. Thanks.

Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2015-03-31 13:15:56 UTC
Yes, it is. 

There is still a bit more to be done before final, but we are waiting on upstream to do that. 

Mainly, the xfce4-notes-plugin release this week should allow us to retire the old libxfcegui4 library and obsolete it so upgrades work nicely. Otherwise all the packages are in and it's just bugfixing and fine tuning now.

Comment 4 Petr Bokoc 2015-04-08 11:54:47 UTC
Hello Kevin, we'd like to include this change in F22 Beta Release Notes.

Please take a look at the draft I wrote in the Doc Text field, and let me know if this is sufficient, or if there's anything you'd like to add or change. Note that the draft is mostly identical to the Release Notes section on the change's Wiki page (thanks for taking the time to write that :).


Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2015-04-08 21:34:49 UTC
Looks pretty good to me. ;)

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 23 development cycle.
Changing version to '23'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 23 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 23 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 13:03:53 UTC
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
