Comment 1 Fedora Blocker Bugs Application 2022-02-16 20:36:46 UTC

 Proposing as a potential violation of the following F36 Final criterion [0]:

"For each Edition... the relevant fields in /etc/os-release must include the correct Edition name."

Yeah, I wasn't actually sure whether this was an intentional change or not, but I forgot to file it - thanks for doing so, Geoff.

The decision to classify this bug as a "RejectedBlocker (Final)" was made based off votes here: [0]

Comment 4 Luca BRUNO 2022-02-22 09:06:03 UTC
Moving to fedora-iot, I think it's the treefile at which has not been updated for F36.

Comment 5 Peter Robinson 2022-02-23 20:24:11 UTC
So I think this should be fixed with 36.20220223.0 when it's finished shortly can you verify.

Comment 6 Geoffrey Marr 2022-03-02 17:26:42 UTC
Looks good to me, checked on 20220302.0 and looks as it should. Thanks pbrobinson.
