Fedora 23 a GO, KDE Not So Much

fedoraJan Kurik tonight announced that Fedora 23 is GO for release. An internal RC10 will be created and tested and if no major issues arise, it will be released as Fedora 23 next week. For KDE users it may not be a day for celebration, as’s Michael Larabel reported today that a co-maintainer for KDE in Fedora said that upcoming version 23 is "easily the worse KDE spin we have ever released." Yikes.

At last night’s Go/No-Go meeting it was determined Fedora 23 included one blocker bug, release notes were incorrect. With that being the only accepted blocker, there was little doubt that Fedora 23 would be approved in tonight’s re-meet. Jan Kurik verified this evening that is indeed the case.

This evening’s meeting was short and sweet and was attended by folks such as Adam Williamson, Matthew Miller, Stephen Gallagher, and Kevin Fenzi. After a quick mini-review the gang declared "RC10 has just been labeled as GOLD." Fedora 23 should be announced Tuesday, November 3.

And that should be the final word on the Final for this weekend for most of us, but alas, Michael Larabel stumbled upon a situation that may have some KDE fans worried. He reported today that one of the maintainers, Kevin Kofler, has quit citing difficulties keeping up with all the upstream changes while GNOME seems to be the priority at Fedora. Kofler was quoted as saying Fedora 23 KDE is "easily the worse KDE spin we have ever released." He said Fedora treats KDE like a "second-class citizen" especially since the creation of Fedora.Next.
