Description Kamil Páral 2020-10-14 11:27:46 UTC
According to our OpenQA tests, F33 RC1.1 Workstation and KDE Live images show a pre-release warning, while they shouldn't:

I'm still downloading those images to verify, but reporting ASAP.

Comment 1 Kamil Páral 2020-10-14 11:46:23 UTC
I can confirm that the pre-release warnings are really there on both Lives.

Comment 2 Kamil Páral 2020-10-14 11:49:17 UTC
I think this is actually caused by bug 1888197, because that's how the Live images determine the pre-release status... (?)

Comment 3 Adam Williamson 2020-10-14 15:56:47 UTC
Yeah, that's exactly right. On live images, the installer winds up falling back to a check of the release field for the package that provides system-release; if it's 1 or greater, anaconda runs in 'final' mode, otherwise it runs in 'prerelease' mode.

The installer images work differently, they use a metadata file that's embedded on the image somewhere, and the value in that depends on an arg passed to pungi during the compose process. So we decide whether the installer images behave as prerelease or final by the pungi command used.
