Branching Freeze


When the next release is branched from rawhide, it initially composes much like rawhide with nightly composes and no updates process.

Once the Bodhi is activated, we will push updates to the branched and the nightly composes will start to differ. But two weeks before the scheduled release of either Beta or GA, we will start the freeze for that release and stop pushing updates.

  • Send announcement to devel-announce mailing list noting that the alpha change freeze is going to happen at least one day in advance.


For updates pushers:

In Change freeze only updates that fix accepted blockers or Freeze break bugs are allowed into the main tree. Please coordinate with QA for any stable updates pushes. Otherwise ONLY push updates-testing.


For Final/GA release:

During Final freeze, we dont want to block any packages in koji as it will effect the RC composes. So, please update the script and remove the branched release reference.
