Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2023-03-06 12:00:17 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 38-final by Fedora user lruzicka using the blocker tracking app because:


This violates the Default Application functionality criterion.

Comment 2 František Zatloukal 2023-03-06 12:21:29 UTC
Setting proper status as there is a patch fixing the issue (fix confirmed): https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-boxes/-/commit/26e51a325d90af116e9021b29034617b3b1c24a9

Comment 3 Lukas Ruzicka 2023-03-13 13:04:16 UTC

+5 in https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/blocker-review/issue/1075 , marking accepted.

Comment 5 Felipe Borges 2023-03-13 15:07:19 UTC
The fix for this was included in the GNOME 44.rc release BEFORE fedora-qe reported the issue.

Comment 6 Adam Williamson 2023-03-13 17:58:17 UTC
Nothing in this bug report said when/where the bug was fixed, so I couldn't assume anything when updating the blocker status.
