Description Kai Engert (:kaie) (inactive account) 2017-09-01 12:02:04 UTC
Purpose of this bug: Carry a release notes item for RHEL 7.5

signtool, shipped as part of the nss subpackage nss-tools, is deprecated, because it's using outdated security features.

It is our understanding that such a change needs to be announced in the release notes of the previous RHEL minor (y-stream) release.
(Please correct us if this isn't necessary.)

Because of this apparent timing requirement, the intention is to:
- announce with RHEL 7.5 release notes
- move to unsupported in RHEL 7.6
