#2473 updates policy is out of date
Closed: Accepted a year ago by sgallagh. Opened 2 years ago by zbyszek.

Looking at https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fesco/Updates_Policy/:

The policy should be updated to require side-tags where appropriate.
E.g. here:

Avoid ABI/API changes where possible. If unavoidable, should coordinate a side-tag to rebuild packages in or a mass build/update, by filing a releng ticket.

Taskotron

Taskotron is gone.


Also: is preserving the "upgrade path" still a requirement? Our rules don't say this anywhere.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1880769#c2.

@adamwill could you comment on the "upgrade path" question above?

The policy should also strongly suggest side-tags for multi-build updates.

With Taskotron removed, much of that output has been moved to Bodhi, right? Is that the correct workflow for creating updates for all of Fedora?

Maybe somebody can propose a PR to update the update guidelines to make this ticket actionable?

I'll take it and put together a PR.

Oops. I thought I chimed in here... I started on an update already. ;)

I'm happy to push a WIP PR if you like and you can adjust it from there?
