As many of you are aware, Fedora Project releases Fedora 20 today,
Tuesday, December 17th. This post serves as a warning against upgrading
your FreeIPA deployments to Fedora 20 using release images. Please check
Fedora 20 Common Bugs page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F20_bugs
for the complete list of issues.
FreeIPA relies heavily on 389-ds Directory Server. Fedora 20 introduces
new version series of 389-ds, 1.3.2.x. Along with multiple enhancements,
unfortunately, few bugs went into the version currently available in
Fedora 20 stable tree. These bugs are causing crashes under certain
conditions and we don't recommend updating your existing configurations
due to these consequences.
As an update to the Fedora 20 Common Bugs page, over last night fellow
developers from 389-ds and slapi-nis projects have fixed
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1041732 but there will be
some delay before the builds featuring the fixes will appear in Fedora
20 updates repository. Remaining bugs are under investigation.
I'll post an update note once we'll get remaining issues fixed and packages
pushed to Fedora 20 updates repository.
