Description Aoife Moloney 2023-05-11 14:42:37 UTC
This is a tracking bug for Change: mkosi-initrd
For more details, see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/mkosi-initrd

mkosi-initrd is an alternative builder for initrds. It will be packaged in Fedora, so that users can use it to build initrds locally. A kernel-install plugin will be provided to build the initrd when a kernel package is installed. As a stretch goal, initrds will be build in koji and delivered via rpm packages. As a further stretch goal, pre-built initrds will be used in Unified Kernel Images that can be delivered via rpm packages.

The work on this was blocked. There's still some chance it'll be done for F39, but a postponement to F40 is likely at this point.

Comment 2 Adam Williamson 2023-08-22 23:10:52 UTC
We are now past beta freeze, at which point this should have been 100% complete. Should we just go ahead and defer it to F40 now?
