Name        : fedfind
Product     : Fedora 25
Version     : 2.6.2
Release     : 1.fc25
URL         : https://www.happyassassin.net/fedfind
Summary     : Fedora Finder finds Fedora
Description :
Fedora Finder finds Fedora. For now, that means it finds Fedora images
- for stable releases, milestone pre-releases, TC/RC composes, and
nightly builds. It provides a simple CLI for showing image URLs, and
can be used as a library by tools which need to find and do stuff with
Fedora images.

Update Information:

The major change in this update is that fedfind now has the ability to
effectively override the productmd-formatted metadata provided by Pungi in
specific cases where it's problematic. There is a new helper function,
`helpers.correct_image`, which applies these 'corrections', and the image dicts
returned by the `Release.all_images` property - commonly used for getting a flat
list of image dicts from the compose metadata - now have these corrections
applied.  This is intended to work around a [significant
issue](https://pagure.io/pungi/issue/417) that's appeared along with the
introduction of a Workstation ostree installer image for Fedora: pungi sets the
`type` for ostree installer images to `boot`, but that means there is no way to
distinguish a Workstation network install image from a Workstation ostree
install image using the metadata. This is a major problem for several things
which distinguish between images based on the metadata (openQA,
fedora_nightlies, and wikitcms are all affected by this). For now, fedfind will
'correct' the `type` for these images from `boot` to `dvd-ostree`. fedfind will
also use the `dvd-ostree` type for ostree installer images when synthesizing
metadata for Releases that do not have it.  Note you can get un'corrected' image
dicts from the `Release.metadata` property, which always provides the original,
entirely unmodified metadata.  There is also a new helper,
`fedfind.helpers.identify_image`, for constructing image identifiers from image
dicts; this is something various fedfind consumers do, and were duplicating the
code for, so let's let them share it. We also tweak and correct the
`expected_images` definitions somewhat (there were inconsistencies between what
fedfind was 'expecting' and what release engineering were actually intending to
provide).  The relval update adjusts `relval size-check` for the `dvd-ostree`

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update fedfind' at the command line.
