Description Adam Williamson 2017-09-16 04:36:26 UTC
This is a bureaucracy bug: I'm filing it to propose it for a Fedora 27 Beta freeze exception. GNOME 3.26.0 is built and an update submitted: . The question is whether it makes sense to pull it into Fedora 27 Beta or not.

We slipped a week at the go/no-go yesterday (2017-09-14), so the next go/no-go is 2017-09-21. That gives us a bit of a window to test out 3.26.0 and include it.

Personally I'm slightly inclined to go ahead with it; GNOME has a pretty good track record of not breaking horribly between the RC and final release stages, and the Beta requirements for GNOME are not *too* huge so we should be able to test and verify whether it meets the requirements quite quickly.

I will test 3.26.0 out on my own F27 system and also try to run openQA tests with it over the next couple of days.

+1 from me

Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2017-09-18 14:46:21 UTC
+1 from me if the GNOME team thinks it's ready and unlikely to cause additional slip (I'll take Matthias's +1 as indicating that.)

Discussed at blocker review meeting [1]:

AcceptedFreezeException - The beta requirements for gnome aren't big and there aren't any regressions right now.

The 3.26.0 update was just pushed to stable as an FE. Closing the ticket.
