I won't be there, but I did talk to Chip personally about it, and made the decision to do the rollback without an epoch. Reasons: 1) it was only in rawhide for a short period of time (a few days, wasn't in preview release) 2) emacs has a pretty big set of packages that have requires/provides and what not and they can be rather fragile. I wasn't keen on introducing an epoch at this moment, especially because epochs tend to be non-obvious. 3) We may shortly after F9 goes out see an updates-testing -> updates of this version of emacs, after it gets some more fixes. I told chip to do it without epoch and that I would stick up for it with FESCo and the like. It was my decision. -- Jesse Keating Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
