Closed 5 years ago Opened 5 years ago by jkurik.

This issue tracks the release note for the following Fedora Change:

Reduce Initial Setup Redundancy
owned by @catanzaro

If you own this change, please add additional information here that we should communicate to Fedora users. Specifically, please consider:

  • New features available because of this change - pick 2 or 3 that are important
  • Considerations for users of previous releases of Fedora (upgrade issues, format changes, etc.)
  • Links to any upstream Release Notes
  • If this helps Fedora be a superior environment for our target audiences, please explain how so that we can emphasize this.

Your notes to us do not need to be formally written. We will edit them and add details as needed. This is a way for you to ensure that we know what is critical about your change.

If you want to write this release note, then:

  • Assign this issue to yourself
  • Check the wiki page linked above, find out what the change is about
  • Determine whether the change actually made it into the release or not[0]
  • Write a draft release note using that information against the correct branch here, in Pagure. (or see below)
  • Get in touch with the contact person/people listed on the wiki page, either through IRC or e-mail, and ask them to check your draft for technical accuracy
  • Submit your Release Note as a PR to this repository.

Once you're done with the above, make sure to either commit the relnote to an appropriate section of the Release Notes book, or, if you're not familiar with Git, AsciiDoc, or whatever else, just add it to this issue as a comment and let pbokoc[1] and Brian ( @bex ) know that you're done with this one and you'd like the note included. Also make sure to do this even for relnotes that haven't been checked by the change owner.

[0] You can do that by asking the change owner listed on the wiki page; alternatively you can infer it by checking the tracker bug (linked in Wiki) in Bugzilla and looking at its status; see bug comments for details. Ask someone on the mailing list or on IRC if you're not sure.
[1] In #fedora-docs on FreeNode (UTC+1 timezone, online mostly during the day on weekdays), or pbokoc @redhat.com if you can't get a hold of me on IRC.

We don't need a lot of detail on this change. I would just say, under the Workstation-specific section of the release notes (since this change does not affect other products):

"When installing Fedora Workstation with the live image, you will now be prompted to create a user account by gnome-initial-setup rather than anaconda."


"When installing Fedora Workstation with the live image, you will no longer be prompted to set a root password. The root account will initially be disabled. If you want to enable the root account, you may set a password for it by running sudo passwd."

The other change is to hide language and keyboard layout selection from gnome-initial-setup, but IMO that is not significant enough to warrant mention in the release notes.
