Description of problem:
Workstation WG would like this update to be included in beta release to improve test coverage.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Workstation WG accidentally forgot about this until today's WG meeting just before beta freeze. :embarassed:
WG intended for these to go into Rawhide and F35 sooner than this.
Proposed as a Freeze Exception for 35-beta by Fedora user chrismurphy using the blocker tracking app because:
Workstation WG requests a freeze exception to improve test coverage by including it in beta. If FE is not granted, it'll show up as a stable update after beta release.
There's a small risk it's not ready for beta, in which case we'd pull it from beta. "kalev: it would be fairly easy" to back it out prior to release.
>kalev: the flatpak selinux thing isn't a risk at all, I left the problematic flatpak update out of this update
A bit of background here.
Parental controls support in GNOME is split over multiple modules: gnome-control-center, gnome-shell, gnome-initial-setup, gnome-software. What we have right now in F35 stable is that gnome-control-center support is enabled, but it's missing a crucial dependency so it's not working right out of the box. In the rest of the modules it's not enabled at all.
We discussed this at today's Workstation WG meeting and decided to attempt to fully enable it for F35 (rather than reverting what's already in place; that's the backup option). aday is going to help smoke test it to verify that the update works well enough to actually ship it to users. If not, we'd like to fully disable the parental controls support for F35.
I left out one bit from this update, that's the flatpak side: It means that gnome-initial-setup won't be able to set up parental controls for flatpak apps. This is due to a selinux issue that I believe still affects F35 -- see https://src.fedoraproject.org/rpms/flatpak/c/89da895a6498469bd458c8913c23c073ce047e47?branch=rawhide for details. It should be fine to leave it out for now since we don't pre-install flatpaks in Workstation (we do in Silverblue but it's not a blocking image).
