Well, we have had a bug open on this for some time - at least, as I understand it, they're the same: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1656509 which suggests that this is intended to be a fix for it: https://github.com/rpm-software-management/dnf-plugins-extras/pull/143 though it seems like it may not exactly be complete... It would be good if DNF team could clarify this, because if they are expecting that this will stay as-is and people will need to explicitly specify the module_platform_id on upgrade, we are gonna need to have a conversation about that and, if it sticks, update the documentation and also ensure GNOME Software DTRT for graphical upgrades. -- Adam Williamson Fedora QA Community Monkey IRC: adamw | Twitter: AdamW_Fedora | XMPP: adamw AT happyassassin . net http://www.happyassassin.net _______________________________________________ devel mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to devel-le...@lists.fedoraproject.org Fedora Code of Conduct: https://getfedora.org/code-of-conduct.html List Guidelines: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailing_list_guidelines List Archives: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
