Description (last modified by jwboyer) (diff)

Doing this proactively this time.

Currently we don't have a signed shim available, so our composes will not correctly boot on secure boot enabled machines.

Is this a blocker for Final? See: ​https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=872272

How long are we willing to wait? Indefinitely?

I spoke to the people at Red Hat who are handling the legal issues which are blocking us on this, and they hope to be able to have things resolved ASAP. I believe it is down to a single issue at this point. Once we clear that up, we should be able to move very quickly to implement the signed shim.

Unfortunately, I cannot be more specific than this, nor can I give any sort of exact timetable, but I don't think we're looking at months, probably weeks at the worst.

-1 without some kind of deadline after we release anyway. I have no problem with a short (a few weeks) slippage, but waiting indefinitely = clear -1.

+1 - Red Hat legal is no longer a blocker here, so I don't see any issues in landing this.
