Fedora 8 and 9 updates status

Jesse Keating posted another update on the status of Fedora 8 and 9 updates

Time for another update on the F8 and F9 updates status.

Our testing with the live update content as gone well. We identified a couple issues with the current PackageKit and thanks to Richard Hughes we'll have an updated PackageKit to offer as well as an updated fedora-release package for our users. The combination of the two (or just the fedora-release package for you non-packagekit users) will be all that you will need in order to gain access to our newly signed and relocated updates.

We're in the final stages of testing a few corner cases, and preparing the official builds of fedora-release, PackageKit, gnome-packagekit, and unique (needed as a new dep for gnome-packagekit). All existing updates in the old update locations will be purged, and just these updates will be put in their place, signed with our old key. Once you've updated to these packages, the next update attempt will point you to our new locations with our new keys and you should be able to process any further pending updates. You'll be prompted to import the new key along the way.

A wiki page has been created that covers some of this, https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Enabling_new_signing_key and will be updated throughout the day as we finish the above listed tasks. A more formal announcement along with links to the official FAQ will be published to same lists this mail is going out to, and likely picked up by various news sites. We expect things to wrap up by the end of today or early tomorrow.

Once again we thank you for your continued patience and be aware that we're nearly there!
