dracut > 009-12 never made it to f15-stable
Hi, all,It looks like the latest f15 dracut to ever make it to -stable was 009-12. I ran across this when I found a laptop that hadn't been on in a while and needed an upgrade to f17. The trick, of course, is that convertfs went into dracut-009-13. After -13, -14 and -15 were built. The Wiki links to the former bodhi page for -15 :
https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/dracut-009-15.fc15but apparently it never got enough karma to move to stable. I'm presuming that when f15 went EOL all the bodhi pages went away too, so the link went dead.
That leaves us with no yum upgrade path from 15 to 17 (due to infrastructure details, not functionality). I think that means preupgrade won't work either (though I use RAID-1 for /boot, so I don't know too much about preupgrade).
Suggestions for the best way forward? I was thinking some constructive options are:
1) out-of-cycle push to stable2) place in -testing (easy enough to document, doesn't help trivial preupgrade case)
3) host elsewhere on Fedora infrastructure (ditto) 4) host -15 off Fedora infrastructure (not awesome in my book)We could always tell folks that they have to step through f16 first or do a DVD upgrade, but those are somewhat less elegant and much more bandwidth intensive.
