Branching Freeze SOP


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

Once the Alpha change freeze point is reached, bodhi is enabled for the branched release and updates are required.

  • Send announcement to devel-announce mailing list noting that the alpha change freeze is going to happen at least one day in advance.
  • Make sure all packages are signed.
  • Enable check for signed packages in mash config in puppet.
  • Koji tag changes here
  • Bodhi changes here

NOTE to 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.
