Rawhide Rebase Warning to Package Maintainers

Greetings,

This e-mail is intended to inform you about the upcoming Bugzilla
changes happening on 2017-08-15 (Rawhide bug rebase) and what you need
to do, if anything.

We will be automatically changing the version for most rawhide bugs to
Fedora 27. This will result in regular bugs reported against rawhide
during the Fedora 27 development cycle being changed to version ‘27'
instead of their current assignment, ‘rawhide’.

Change owner(s):

Upstream removes support for SSH-1 protocol and we plan to do the same
in Fedora. The protocol is years obsolete and not even supported in
current default binaries (only in openssh-clients-ssh1 subpackage).

considered secure.

The submission deadline for System Wide Change Proposals of Fedora 27

<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Modular_Server" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Modular_Server">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Modular_Server</a>

Change owner(s):
* Langdon White <langdon AT fedoraproject DOT org>

The Modularity Working Group, Factory 2.0, Base Runtime, and Server
Working Group would like to propose using the modular infrastructure
for creating and delivering the Fedora Server Edition for Fedora 27.
While we are still working through some of the kinks leading up to the
release of Fedora 26, we believe that the changes to the
infrastructure and technology implementations will be available with
sufficient time to harden

F27 System Wide Change: Host and Platform

= Proposed System Wide Change: Host and Platform =

<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Host_and_Platform" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Host_and_Platform">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Host_and_Platform</a>

Change owner(s):
* Petr Šabata <contyk AT redhat DOT com>

Host and Platform is an evolution of the Base Runtime module concept
introduced in Fedora 26 Boltron, splitting the minimal system further
into independent modules allowing for greater flexibility when
composing and maintaining the base system.

This change focuses on modular content structure;
[[Changes/ModularRelease]] [
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/ModularRelease" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/ModularRelease">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/ModularRelease</a> ] deals with

The build, release, distribution, and update changes associated with
and required for the [Changes/Modular_Server] and
[Changes/Host_and_Platform] Changes.

== Detailed Description ==

=== Preamble ===
This change is intended to cover the workflow and technical tooling
aspects of a “modular” release for F27.

There are other Changes that are not part of the scope of this Change,
but which are related:

* [[Changes/Modular_Server]] i

F27 Self Contained Change: Remove krb5-appl

= Proposed Self Contained Change: Remove krb5-appl =
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Remove_krb5-appl" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Remove_krb5-appl">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/Remove_krb5-appl</a>

Change owner(s):
* Robbie Harwood (rharwood) <rharwood at f p dot o >

Remove src:krb5-appl (produces packages krb5-appl-clients and
krb5-appl-servers) from the distribution.

== Detailed Description ==
These packages will likely be officially deprecated upstream soon, and
probably should not be used in most cases anyway. It contains legacy
kerberized utilities, like rsh. There are no packages which depend
them.

F27 System Wide Change: Golang 1.9

= System Wide Change: Golang 1.9 =
<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/golang1.9" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/golang1.9">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/golang1.9</a>

Change owner(s):

Rebase of Golang package to upcoming version 1.9 in Fedora 27,
including rebuild of all dependent packages(pre-release version of Go

Change owner(s):
* Jonathan Wakely <jwakely AT fedoraproject DOT org >

This change brings Boost 1.64.0 to Fedora 27. This will mean F27 ships
with a recent upstream Boost release.

== Detailed Description ==
The aim is to synchronize Fedora with the most recent Boost release.
Because ABI stability is one of explicit Boost non-goals, this entails
rebuilding of all dependent packages.

F27 System Wide Change: Enable TRIM pass down to encrypted disks

= System Wide Change: Enable TRIM pass down to encrypted disks =

= System Wide Change: Parallel Installable Debuginfo =

Change owner(s):

Change owner(s):

user experience in the general case as well.

== Detailed Description ==
Over time, Fedora used different credential cache types to store
Kerberos credentials - going from a simple file-based storage (FILE:)
to a directory (DIR:) and most recently a kernel-keyring based cache

Update the PHP stack in Fedora to latest version 7.2.x

Fedora roadmap. [ <a href="https://wiki.php.net/todo/php72" title="https://wiki.php.net/todo/php72">https://wiki.php.net/todo/php72</a> ]
Compatibility for PHP code is very good.

Change owner(s):
* Petr Písař <ppisar AT redhat DOT com>

dnf install perl will install all core Perl modules that come with
Perl upstream sources.

== Detailed Description ==
Upstream releases Perl interpreter together many Perl modules. This
set of modules is called core modules. Fedora splits the modules into
subpackages so that installing perl package results in stripped-down
set of modules.
