Closed 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by jkurik.

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

Deprecate TCP wrappers
owned by @jjelen

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.


1) The link to the change is missing the "wiki/" in URL and therefore is redirected to the main page. The correct link is here.
2) The release notes draft is already in the change page. I took it and reworded a little bit to match the reality:

Fedora 28 removes support for tcp_wrappers (aka /etc/hosts.deny access files) by default from all the network daemons and tools. The preferred replacements are software firewalld, nftables rules or software specific access rules for more complex filtering.
If your system security depends on tcp_wrappers rules, convert them to firewall, or set up tcpd to do the same job for you.

Fixed. Thanks for reporting.
