- SDDM as the KDE display manager in place of KDE's KDM.

- /opt/fedora will be a registered direction with LANANA for Fedora Software Collections purposes.
- The Fedora 21 playground repository has been approved.
- Anaconda support for server roles got the go-ahead for Fedora 21.

The set-back this week was the systemd remote journal logging that will have to undergo further review. Disabling the firwall by default was also rejected, among some other smaller proposals that will require additional work.
