    Phoronix: Fedora 31 Finally Planning To Gate Packages While Testing, More Stable Rawhide

    As something that arguably should have been done long ago, developers drafting plans for Fedora 31 are planning to introduce single-package gating so packages don't actually land in Rawhide (the Fedora development repository) until they successfully pass their tests... This should help weed out broken packages in Fedora Rawhide and lead to a more usable experience for those living on Fedora's bleeding-edge while also helping along a smooth release process...

    kinda sounds like there killing off Rawhide IMO . if you want a More stable Rawhide, stop using RC Kernels that are also git releases, ya wonder why Rawhide is so Saggy

      It looks like rawhide is turning into a viable rolling release.

        they still cause issues, enough for people not to use it, i used to use Rawhide but stopped using it for only those problems

          looks like they are trying co copycat Tumbleweed. Not a bad thing.

            Nice job reinventing Debian's testing repo after 18 years.

              why aren't you quiet when you have no clue about other distributions? rawhide is not new at all, you just don't understand the topic from your Debian bubble


              Rawhide is not new, "introducing single-package gating so packages don't actually land in Rawhide until they successfully pass their tests" is, and this is exactly the difference between Debian unstable vs testing.
