#1989 Decide status of "Rename Atomic Workstation to Silverblue" change
Closed: Accepted 3 years ago Opened 3 years ago by zbyszek.

This status of this change was discussed in the FESCo meeting on 2018-09-10.
We are worried about the lack of communication and status updates from change owners.

We have three general directions proposed:
1) back it out and go for F30
2) let it land after beta and block final
3) block beta on it being done

We urgently need an update from Change owners on what has been done and what is still needed to complete this.

I lean towards thinking we should say "what is done for F29 is done, but the rest should wait for F30", unless someone can think of a reason that would be $bad.

@mclasen @stickster Please have the Workstation/Silverblue WG provide a response here on what is left to do so we can make a reasonable determination.

https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/1510 has been merged into the f29-devel anaconda branch, but there is no build with that change yet.

From the silverblue meeting today:

mclasen> things that are done: refs in the repo are renamed, the iso is renamed
otaylor> I think the status is more like: it's not all done, but it's not broken, and reverting to FAW wouldn't make sense.

@mclasen said that he'll provide an update here, but not before todays' FESCo meeting.

proposal: We acknowledge that the change is partially implemented and users might see the old name is various places, but what was already done cannot be reverted meaningfully. If the silverblue team proposes any further changes before GA that need exceptions from the general policy, they will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Likewise, if there are any problems, they will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
