  • The QA:SOP_blocker_bug_process and QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process pages describe the general processes for handling blocker and freeze exception bugs
  • Criteria for considering a bug to be a blocker to be added to a release tracker are set in the release criteria page for each public release (Alpha, Beta, and Final)
  • Fedora creates a series of tracker bugs at the beginning of each new release cycle for two release cycles in advance
  • For example, at the release of Fedora 38, Fedora 40 Blocker and Freeze Exception bugs were created. At the release of Fedora 39, Fedora 41 Blocker and Freeze Exception bugs will be created, etc.
  • 'Dynamic' - unversioned - tracker aliases are applied to the bugs for the next pending release, and transfer after each release


Create new bugs (base the bug layout on the most recent equivalent bug) and assign the following aliases.

  • FXXAlphaBlocker (must fix prior to Alpha release)
  • FXXAlphaFreezeExcept (freeze exception fixes for Alpha release)
  • FXXBetaBlocker (must fix prior to Beta release)
  • FXXBetaFreezeExcept (freeze exception fixes for Beta release)
  • FXXFinalBlocker (must fix prior to Final)
  • FXXFinalFreezeExcept (freeze exception fixes for Final)
  1. Record new tracker bugs in the section Current Tracker Bugs above
  2. After the Alpha release, move any remaining open bugs on the Alpha-accepted tracker to the Beta-accepted tracker; after the Beta release, move any remaining open bugs on the Beta-accepted tracker to the Final -accepted tracker; after the Final release, set any remaining open bugs on the Final -accepted tracker to no longer block any of these tracker bugs
  3. Once a release is finished, close all its tracker bugs, and move the listing of tracker bugs from the section Current Tracker Bugs to the section Past Tracker Bugs

Tracker bugs should be created with the following attributes:

  1. Alias corresponding to the blocker and release. For example
    • Fedora 40 Alpha would be: F40AlphaBlocker
    • Fedora 40 Alpha Freeze Exception would be: F40AlphaFreezeExcept
    • Fedora 41 Final Blocker would be: F41FinalBlocker
    • Fedora 41 Final Freeze Exception would be: F41FinalFreezeExcept
  2. Keyword Tracking

The 'dynamic' aliases - the aliases without version numbers:

  • AlphaBlocker
  • AlphaFreezeException
  • BetaBlocker
  • BetaFreezeException
  • FinalBlocker
  • FinalFreezeException

should always be applied to the next pending release. Right now, they should be applied to Fedora 39.

  • A bugzilla query reporting all tracker bugs is here: here
Tracker bugs--commonly referred to as blocker bugs--are meta-bugs used to monitor a group of bugs that must be resolved before a specific release milestone and are therefore considered to block the release.
Aliases provide the ability to refer to a particular bugzilla by a user-defined term rather than the bug number. Some people find it easier to remember aliases rather than bug numbers.
