This is a tracking bug for Change: Enable bootupd for Fedora Silverblue & Kinoite
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/FedoraSilverblueBootupd
By design, ostree does not manage bootloader updates as they can not (yet) happen in a safe fashion. To solve this issue, bootupd (https://github.com/coreos/bootupd) was created. bootupd is a small socket activated program that takes care of updating the bootloader. It currently only supports EFI booted systems and rpm-ostree based systems. The updates are triggered by an administrator and are not (yet) automated for safety reasons. This change is about enabling bootupd integration in Fedora Silverblue and Fedora Kinoite to make bootloader updates easier. bootupd is already used in Fedora CoreOS.

Today we reached the Code Complete (Testable) milestone on the F38 schedule: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-38/f-38-key-tasks.html
At this time, all F38 Changes should be complete enough to be testable. You can indicate this by setting this tracker to the MODIFIED status. If the Change is 100% code complete, you can set the tracker to ON_QA. If you need to defer this Change to F39, please NEEDINFO me.
Changes that have not reached at least the MODIFIED status will be given to FESCo for evaluation of contingency plans.
This is not yet testable but we're trying to make that happen. Added the dependency.

Note that we are entering the Beta freeze. Additional package changes to complete this Change will need an approved blocker or freeze exception. See https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_blocker_bug_process and https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process for more information.

We did not manage to make it happen for F38. This will be for F39 and we'll try to backport the changes as much as possible later.
Ack. Deferring to F39
This is not yet ready for F39 Beta. We'll try to land it as soon as possible via a freeze exception.
We haven't been able to land this in Fedora 39 as we're missing changes in Anaconda. Pushing to Fedora 40. We might try to land part of it in F39 as a backport as we now have the unified core change in.
OK, so making the appropriate changes.
It would appear that Anaconda has some enhancements related to bootupd:
What would be next for enabling bootupd in Silverblue and Kinoite?
Hey Timothée , we are at the 'testable' deadline for F40 now, what is the status of this at present? Thanks!
This change was deferred to F41 following a FESCo meeting vote https://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/meeting_matrix_fedoraproject-org/2024-02-26/fesco.2024-02-26-19.35.html (line 3.ad)
Sorry I forgot to update this bug. This is now ready for Fedora 40.
The last missing bit is https://github.com/fedora-silverblue/issue-tracker/issues/530
Thanks Adam. I've updated https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/FedoraSilverblueBootupd back to F40. Could you sync the change pages? Thanks
Aoife is back now, so I'll leave it to her.
