#1490 restore MPI Requires Provides as F23 change
Closed None Opened 6 years ago by zbyszek.

= phenomenon =
FESCo voted to delay the change to F24 when it was already mostly implemented. Soon after that the change was fully implemented as approved, and has been "live" in F23 since alpha.

= background analysis =
This change could be important for users of MPI-enabled packages and should be advertised in the list of implemented changes, and probably also in release notes.

= implementation recommendation =
Undo removal of https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/RpmMPIReqProv from Category:ChangeAcceptedF23, add it to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/23/ChangeSet, and wherever else necessary.

We initially voted in [https://fedorahosted.org/fesco/ticket/1445#comment:9 favour of this] as accepted F23 Change before Alpha Freeze. Then I don't see any reply given for [https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1238428#c4 bugzilla comment]. Hence, its moved to Category:ChangePageIncomplete.

I don't see any issues to mark this change as complete though it happened late and no prior exception request made separately to FESCo. Also, at least some response should have been given on Change tracking bugzilla for missing the deadlines.

Yeah, the change was late and communication from our side (Sandro Mani's the author and mine as provenpackager helping with the rebuilds) should have been better. But it's implemented now and that's what counts :)

I may not be able to attend today's FESCo meeting. I'm +1 for including this change in F23 changes.

The change is now marked as completed in F23 and included in the [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/23/ChangeSet F23 Changeset].
