Fedora CoreOS dropping libvarlink-utils from base OSTree

Cross posted with this coreos-status email.

We have decided to remove varlink (provided by the libvarlink-utils package) from Fedora CoreOS. Podman was the primary consumer of this package and the use of it was removed in Podman v3.0 and later. At the moment, we are not aware of any other consumers of libvarlink-utils on FCOS.

The package will initially be removed from the next stream. It will be followed by testing and stable after it has been removed from next for at least a month.

Please test out the next stream over the coming month and report if there are any additional consumers of libvarlink-utils.

Thank you to everyone helping us by running the next stream!

The Fedora CoreOS Team
