Description Andre Robatino 2010-08-04 18:21:29 UTC
Description of problem:
The ISOs for the Alpha TCs/RCs used to have the word "Alpha" in them, for example "Fedora-13-Alpha-i386-DVD.iso".  But the two F14 TCs are named exactly the same as the Final, for example "Fedora-14-i386-DVD.iso".  If Alpha, Beta, and Final start using exactly the same names, it could cause major confusion since the only way to tell the signed checksum files apart would be to look at the dates on the signatures using "gpg --verify" (and most people won't even remember the release dates in a few years).

Unless there was a decision to use the same ISO name throughout release milestones, I think this is worth considering when composing the F-14-Alpha release candidates.  

I'm not sure if a pungi configuration change is needed, but we may want to remain consistent with ISO names used in previous release milestones.

I suspect this is just me futzing up the compose arguments.

Comment 3 John Poelstra 2010-08-05 16:41:15 UTC
This can be fixed on the next compose, but should not be blocking the RC creation.  Moving to MODIFIED

Comment 4 Andre Robatino 2010-08-06 04:22:42 UTC
Fixed with 14-Alpha.RC1.
