Fedora 37 and Kubernetes Notes

Fedora 37 provides Kubernetes 1.25 as rpms in the official repository. The upstream Kubernetes team recently shifted to using Go language v1.20.x as the current standard go version for all supported versions of Kubernetes, including v1.25.

At this time, Fedora 37 provides Go v1.19.x and will not shift to Go v1.20 until September. Go 1.19 is blocking updates to Kubernetes on F37 due to the change from upstream.

There is a COPR repository for recent builds of Kubernetes 1.27 on Fedora 37 (and 38) at https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/buckaroogeek/copr-k8s-1.25/.

Kubernetes v1.25.13 with security fixes for CVE-2023-3955 and CVE-2023-3676 is available (once the build completes) in the COPR repository.
