Stream Release Criteria

The following are the proposed criteria that MUST be met for each stream to be promoted.

Supported Architecture and Platforms

Fedora CoreOS is currently built for the x86_64 architecture, These platforms are supported and can be configured directly using Ignition.

The kola test suite is run for each stream release on AWS, GCP and OpenStack.

Details of the tests we run

Stream release Go/NoGo

Stream releases are scheduled fortnightly, a GitHub issue (example) is created for each stream release with the release process. The release status can be tracked in each ticket. If each steps and validation were successful the release is considered GO.

Issues are reported in the issue tracker and discussed during the weekly IRC meeting. A stream release can become a NOGO during these meeting, the blocker issue is then linked to the release GitHub issue.
