This is a tracking bug for Change: Fedora 24 Boost 1.60 uplift
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/F24Boost160
This change brings Boost 1.60.0 to Fedora 24. This will mean F24 ships with the latest upstream Boost release.
On 2016-Feb-23, we have reached Fedora 24 Change Checkpoint: Completion deadline (testable).
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.
Change tracking bug should be set to the MODIFIED state to indicate it achieved completeness.
Incomplete and non testable Changes will be reported to FESCo on 2016-Feb-26 meeting. Contingency plan for System Wide Changes, if planned for Alpha (or in case of serious doubts regarding Change completion), will be activated.
On 2016-Apr-19 we reached the "Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline" milestone for Fedora 24 release. At this point all the Changes not at least in in "ON_QA" state should be brought to FESCo for review. Please update the state of this bug to "ON_QA" if it is already 100% completed. Please let me know in case you have any trouble with the implementation and the Change needs any help or review.
I have added a brief release notes entry to the draft F24 Release Notes here: https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/docs/release-notes.git/patch/?id=db03e53c4b2a310853067f3ddf3d15a3dd22e450
Please would you take a look at the draft and let me know if anything should be added or changed?
Boost 1.61 will be out before F24 (I think it was originally scheduled for last week), so it won't be the latest upstream release by the time F24 is released.
Maybe something like "Fedora 24 includes Boost version 1.60.0, a newer release from upstream."
N.B. the current wording also says "upstream **Boot** release" :-)
