Graphical System Upgrades
Last modified: 2017-09-27 13:32:19 EDT
This is a tracking bug for Change: Graphical System Upgrades
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/GraphicalSystemUpgrades
Add support for performing system upgrades to a newer Fedora release through GNOME Software.
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.
Latest status update is in https://blogs.gnome.org/hughsie/2016/04/20/upgrading-fedora-23-to-24-using-gnome-software/
For the record, I think this Change should have been considered late at the 'Completion deadline'. It is a Change that "is to be enabled by default" and it certainly was *not* "enabled by default" on 2016-02-23, I don't even know that it was testable at that point. Setting the bug to MODIFIED was inappropriate and shouldn't have been done IMHO.
This went to stable last night.
