FEDORA --
The Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee met today to discuss features proposed for Fedora 23.

Approved at today's FESCo meeting was the system firmware updates item along with having a default local DNS resolver.

The default local DNS resolver is a feature carried over from the Fedora 22 cycle so checkout that earlier article for the details. This feature got the go-ahead today from the FESCo members.

The other change was the system firmware updates using UEFI capsules with UEFI 2.5+. This item has been talked about more broadly several times on Phoronix already as work being done for GNOME 3.18 and being spearheaded by several Red Hat employees.

The item not approved today by FESCo was the Fedora Netizen spin.

More details via the FESCo meeting minutes.
