Fedora Final Freeze
Before freezing everything we need to do the last stable push in bodhi.
Freeze is enabled by editing RelEngFrozen variable in infra ansible repo and then run the bodhi playbook. This playbook should be executed on the 'batcave01' machine. Please note that the 'rbac-playbook' command utilizes role-based access control (RBAC) and verifies that you are in the correct group with the necessary privileges. If you meet these requirements, you can run the playbook without needing root access.
$ ssh batcave01.iad2.fedoraproject.org $ sudo rbac-playbook groups/bodhi-backend.yml
$ bodhi releases edit --name F39 --state frozen
Send an email as mentioned below to
announce@ lists as information that the final freeze is now active.
For the reference, you can refer generic template for final freeze from release engineering repo.
Hi all, Today, YYYY-MM-DD, is an important day on the Fedora Linux 39 schedule , with significant cut-offs. Today we have the Final Freeze  which starts at 14:00 UTC. This means that only packages which fix accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs  will be marked as 'stable' and included in the Final composes. Other builds will remain in updates-testing until the Final release is approved, at which point the Final freeze is lifted and packages can move to the 'updates' repository. Pending updates will be pushed before final release as zero day updates. Regards, Fedora Release Engineering  https://fedorapeople.org/groups/schedule/f-39/f-39-key-tasks.html  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Milestone_freezes  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_blocker_bug_process  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process  https://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/milestone/f39/final/buglist
Please ensure that the reminder email is sent once the state becomes frozen.
