When will LibreOffice 7.4.3 be available for F36?

tl;dr: Is there a way of seeing or monitoring when a certain package (in this case LibreOffice) is being considered/tested for stable?

I am relatively new to Fedora (ex. Ubuntu user, ok, cry me a river later [jokes])
I was very pleased to see LibreOffice included in the Spin (I am using Cinnamon)
I was about to add the Language Tool grammar checker plugin, only to find:

NOTE: Starting with LibreOffice 7.4, LanguageTool can be used from LibreOffice without this add-on.



So, with excitement and baited breath, I await 7.4.3 to become available.

A quick look on https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/?search=libreoffice shows 7.4.3 stable for F37 but nothing yet for F36.

So, is there a way I can monitor the progress for F36?

I have no clue if 7.4 will be updated for F36, but reading the documentation for Language Tool it seems there are some features that make it attractive even if not fully needed for the newer release of LibreOffice.

I agree, however, I just wanted to try out Language Tool in 7.4.3 before fully installing the plugin, which I will probably do.

My question still remains though, is there a way of checking when a package/app will move into the pending testing stable phase?

If us regular users do not have access to that information, then fine (and I somehow suspect this is the case). But hey, I thought I would ask anyway. Especially as seeing the information is already very comprehensive on https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/ and maybe I am missing something.

It’s not as if you as a regular user has access to less information than anyone else. Fedora does things in the open. The only one who could answer this question properly is the maintainer of the packages in question. There are a policy for what to upgrade and what not to, but it is in the end the individual developer who does the judgement call of applying the policy.

According to bodhi, 7.4.4. is already considered stable for F37 but nothing is added for F36, neither stable nor testing. So I guess it is at the moment not intended for F36.

The buildsystem has further information about packages/builds, including indication who maintains what: https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=11024

Fedora 36 will be remain on the 7.3 series (and will keep in sync with new releases from that branch), while Fedora 37 is tracking the 7.4 series.

Fedora is a cutting edge spin of Red Hat … RHEL 9, CentOS Stream 9, Fedora 37 … if you want up to date software, migrate to Fedora 37 through DNF with indications here : https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/quick-docs/dnf-system-upgrade/
