This week in rawhide: the pre-mass rebuild edition
A few fun things to share with everyone in rawhide land:
First, we turned on xz repodata a while back, so if you have noticed your yum/dnf updates being a bit quicker and less BW intensive that might be why. If you are manipulating rawhide in an older os, you may need to install pyliblzma in order to keep reading the data as before.
The work on signing rawhide packages is moving forward. Stay tuned, but hopefully we will have something before too long on that front.
Finally, the f21 mass rebuild is almost on us. It will start this friday evening. We have more builders than ever enabled and ready, so I suspect this will be a pretty quick rebuild. Do look for almost all your installed rawhide packages to get updates however. Hopefully there won’t be too much fallout to clean up.
