F28 System Wide Change: Deprecate TCP wrappers

Change owner(s):
* Jakub Jelen <jjelen AT redhat DOT com >

TCP wrappers is a simple tool to block incoming connection on
application level. This was very useful 20 years ago, when there were
no firewalls in Linux. This is not the case for today and connection
filtering should be done in network level or completely in application
scope if it makes sense.

Request for review of F27 Release Blocking deliverables

I would like to request review of Release Blocking deliverables for
Fedora 27 release. I aware of the fact we are already in Beta Freeze
and I apologize for not having the list of deliverables ready in
advance. The list is available on usual location [1]. Please let me
know in case there is any discrepancy or something is missing.

which supports IDNA2008.

== Detailed Description ==
Internationalized domain names exist for quite some time (IDNA2003),
although the protocols describing them have evolved in an incompatible
way (IDNA2008).

Fedora Release Live Cycle

Hi everyone,

as you probably noted, one of the significant changes in F27 release
is the missing Alpha release. This is based on the "No More alphas"
[1] Change. The schedule for F27 release [2] has been put together
with the aim not to break any flow during the cycle and with intention
to make observations what issues and changes in the flow this Change
brings.

0Day policy update

Hi,

as discussed in thread [1] I would like to propose update of the
blocker process SOP page [2] regarding Accepted0Day and
AcceptedPreviousRelease. Currently we have in the policy the following
statement:

"Accepted0Day is used for cases where the fix does not need to appear
in the final frozen release, but must be available as an update on
release day. AcceptedPreviousRelease is used for cases where the fix
must appear as an update for one or more stable releases."

This statement does not fully define timing of Accepted0Day and
AcceptedPreviousRelease with regard to release date.

Elections July/August 2017 to FESCo, FAmSCo - the 2nd round of Voting period has started

Hi Fedora community,

as the originally planned FAmSCo and FESCo Voting period was
cancelled, we are now starting the alternative Voting period to these
two teams.

FESCo elections are cancelled as list of nominees needs to be amended

Fedora community,

I need to inform you that currently running elections to FESCo needs
to be cancelled. As reported on Council ticket #131 [1], one of the
nominees to FESCo has already granted FESCo seat till end of the F27
period. As such his nomination for the current Elections needs to be
cancelled and subsequently we need to cancel the whole voting and run
it once more.

I would like to ask members of Fedora community to vote once more
starting on Tuesday 2017-Aug-15 00:00:00 UTC. The new voting period
will stop on 2017-Aug-21 at 23:59:00 UTC.

FAmSCo elections are cancelled due to wrong setup of Voting machine

Ambassadors and members of Fedora community,

unfortunately I have to cancel the Elections to FAmSCo due to a
mistake made in configuration of Voting machine. Today (Friday)
morning I received an email reporting issue where people who are not
members of "ambassadors" group in FAS can not vote.
