Comment 1 Ben Cotton 2022-02-08 21:07:04 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora Linux 36 development cycle.
Changing version to 36.

Comment 2 Ben Cotton 2022-02-08 21:15:06 UTC
Today we reached the Code Complete (testable) milestone in the F36 schedule: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-36/f-36-key-tasks.html

All code for this change should be complete enough for testing. You can indicate this by setting the bug status to MODIFIED. (If the code is fully complete, you can go ahead and set it to ON_QA.)

If you need to defer this Change to F37, please needinfo bcotton.

Comment 3 Till Maas 2022-02-15 09:29:09 UTC
Current tasks:

- split the ifcfg plugin into a subpackage
- ensure that it is not installed by default
- make cloud-init depend on the new subpackage

Comment 4 Ben Cotton 2022-02-22 16:30:52 UTC
We have reached the 'Change complete (100% complete) deadline in the Fedora Linux 36 release schedule.

At this time, all Changes should be fully complete. Indicate this by setting this tracking bug to ON_QA.

If you need to defer this Change to a subsequent release, please needinfo me.

Comment 5 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2022-03-16 09:21:47 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 36-beta by Fedora user bengal using the blocker tracking app because:

 The update splits the ifcfh-rh plugin (needed to read and write
connection profiles in the ifcfg format in
/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts) to a separate package according to
[1][2]; in this way, it will not be installed by default in new
systems. It will be kept installed upon upgrade, though.

I know it's quite late but there were issues with anaconda that are
now solved (see comments on the bodhi update [3]).

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2022-03-16 15:51:28 UTC
To be clear, was the blocker proposal here intended to mean "we want to put this feature in Beta, but there's a freeze, please pull it in"? If so, it should be proposed as a freeze exception, not a blocker. It should only be proposed as a blocker if something will be badly broken unless we pull in this update.

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2022-03-16 21:26:02 UTC
-5 in https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/blocker-review/issue/677 , rejected as a blocker, on the basis that no criteria violation or major bug was identified here. If there's more to this than it appears, we can revote.

Yes. Do you know how I can do that? Still from


but marked as freeze exception instead?

Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2022-03-17 15:53:31 UTC
Yes, but since I'm here I'll just do it manually, like this:
