module-init-tools iuso X X (emrys) Gating bug #13446 is fixed in test and awaiting integration. Unfortunately I don't have time to investigate whether #8865 still applies; perhaps it should be declared non-gating for this release.

sed afrayedknot X X (sandalle)
shadow sobukus X X X (sandalle) #13505 is gating until the two/three requested commits are integrated, broken default group behaviour of useradd remains - an upstream bug that has to be fixed some time (I disagree that this should be gating; it's been around forever, and I'm not willing to approve this kind of integration to something this critical right before the release. Let it soak in test first. –emrys); OK, then I'll make my sign-off after the degating — sobukus

tar ruskie X X
texinfo lynx X X
udev iuso X X (sandalle) Gating bug #13447 is fixed as soon as module-init-tools' fixed bug #13446 is integrated. Didn't have enough time for non-gating bugs #12700 and #12739 this round.
