Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1479836
Include new cockpit-packagekit subpackage into RHEL 7 Extras
Last modified: 2017-10-19 11:18:37 EDT
Two months ago Cockpit introduced a new "Software Updates" page for "classic" RPM (and deb) based systems . So far we have only had a "Software Updates" page on Atomic based systems (cockpit-ostree).
This has been improved and matured since then (user testing, subscription detection, etc.) and has been shipped in Fedora 26, Debian and Ubuntu stable releases, so it did get some field testing. I think it is mature enough to get included into RHEL Extras now.
Note that the UI will grow in the future, e. g. to add support for configuring automatic updates or exposing repository information (see the spec ). As with the rest of cockpit in extras this package would see frequent rebases and thus deliver these new features.
Please find at this link the documentation on how to handle zstreams.
Also this bug needs also 7.5 flag, we cannot clone directly 7.4z stream.
@Oneata, the point of this is to release a subpackage in rhel 7.4 extras, not 7.5 or 7.5 extras. Because this is not a new package, just releasing a subpackage that we were previously filtering out with whitelists, we've gotten the ok to do this.

OK than, no process for extra zstream. If you have a QE assigned request the ack from him for qa_ack.
I'll provide ack for 7.4z after.
Jan, can you please review this and set the QA ack? This new package is covered by our CI, and I'm happy to answer any questions about it (on IRC or here) wrt. what it does, how to test it manually, etc.
Hello sir, we have the qa_ack+. Can you please review and give us official 7.4z blessing.
