Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1303542
Last modified: 2017-07-11 08:08:57 EDT
This is a tracking bug for Change: NewRpmDBFormat
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/NewRpmDBFormat
Change format of the RPM Database from Berkeley DB to RPM's own format.
Can you explain *why* we need to create our *own* format? My first inclination is that we should not be writing our own database format, but instead using a different one that's better maintained.
* look for something like RocksDB, or lmdb
* maintain Berkeley DB ourselves
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.
Further reviews and discussions have turned up more things that still need fixing or being dealt with. As there already was some criticism that this feature is rushed we rather postpone the change of the format for one release and will put the support for the new format in F24 as a tech preview only.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
is this Feature likely to make it for F25 ?
Even if it doesn't, how does one access this feature as a "tech preview" that's in F24 and I assume is still there in F25? As far as I can tell, our rpm package is built without the flag necessary to compile in the ndb code.
I am wondering, what is the status of the new ndb format? Clearly not available yet in any Fedora release. Has it been postponed to F26 or to some other release?
Any update on this?
