ELN Branching Events
Fedora Branching happens every 6 months, when Fedora Rawhide branches for the next release. Example: When Fedora Rawhide is branched to F35 and fedora-release is set to f36.
The eln build trigger needs to be updated to the latest version that is in fedora-release. Using our original example. We would change this to f36.
Example pull request: https://github.com/fedora-ci/eln-build-trigger/pull/2
After Fedora branching has happened, and fedora-release has been updated and built for the new version, check the fedora-release rpm spec file. Verify that
is set to the correct version.
The fedora-release check is especially important if this is the fedora branching that corresponds to a RHEL version change.

RHEL Branching happens every 3 years, when RHEL branches for the next release. Example: When RHEL is branched to RHEL 10.
rpm.macro.rhel needs to be updated to be the next RHEL release.
You can see the current setting on the eln-build koji page.
