Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2023-03-07 09:05:38 UTC
Proposed as a Blocker for 38-final by Fedora user lbrabec using the blocker tracking app because:


This violates the Default Application functionality criterion.

Comment 2 Kamil Páral 2023-03-10 11:53:20 UTC
This is basically a duplicate of bug 2130937. Let's keep it open until the blocker vote is decided, then merge those two.

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2023-03-12 17:13:52 UTC
-4 blocker / +3 FE in https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/blocker-review/issue/1079 , marking rejected/accepted.
