Fedora Job Opening: Community Action and Impact Coordinator (FCAIC)

It is bittersweet to announce that I have decided to move on from my role as the Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator (FCAIC). For me, this role has been full of growth, unexpected challenges, and so much joy. It has been a privilege to help guide our wonderful community through challenges of the last three years. I’m excited to see what the next FCAIC can do for Fedora. If you’re interested in applying, see the FCAIC job posting on Red Hat Jobs and read more about the role below.

Nest with Fedora: Call for proposals and sponsors 

As we celebrate Fedora Linux 36 with the upcoming Release Party, we are also looking forward to our next virtual event: Nest with Fedora. As I mentioned in my last update, the 2022 edition of our annual contributor conference will be our third virtual Nest paired with Fedora Hatches (local in person meetups). A big thanks to Fedorans for showing up with seven proposals for Hatches all across the world! Furthermore, I am excited to announce that the Nest with Fedora call for proposals and sponsors is now open.

You’ll also notice a new Fedora mascot in the banner for this post, a wonderfully Fedorable design developed by intern Jess Chitas. Introducing Colúr, inspired by the Nest logo and named with the Gaelic word for pigeon. The Design Team was inspired by wordplay because Colúr sounds similar to the word color in English and he is a comprised of all the Fedora colors! Welcome, Colúr!

CPE Weekly Update – Week 25 2022

This is a weekly report from the CPE (Community Platform Engineering) Team. If you have any questions or feedback, please respond to this report or contact us on #redhat-cpe channel on libera.chat (https://libera.chat/).

Week: 20th – 24th June 2022

Highlights of the week

Infrastructure & Release Engineering

Goal of this Initiative

The purpose of this team is to take care of day-to-day business regarding CentOS and Fedora Infrastructure and Fedora release engineering work.
It’s responsible for services running in Fedora and CentOS infrastructure and preparing things for the new Fedora release (mirrors, mass branching, new namespaces etc.).
The ARC (which is a subset of the team) investigates possible initiatives that CPE might take on.

Update

Fedora Infra

  • Most apps have moved over to the OpenShift4 cluster. Hopefully, the transition should be finishing up this week.
  • Wiki: All upgraded in production and working (thanks Ryan!)
  • Resultsdb: All moved over to OpenShift 4 in prod and working (thanks Leo!)
  • Business proceeding as usual

CentOS Infra including CentOS CI

  • Kerberos settings switch for git.centos.org (kcm on el8 vs keyring on el7) for lookaside upload cgi
  • Issue on iad2 hosted reference mirror (epel.next and mirrormanager), all fixed now
  • Duffy CI ongoing tasks and deployments (all announced)
  • Equinix nodes migration (on their request)
  • Business proceeding as usual

Release Engineering

  • Compose-tracker updated to f36 in staging, production happening tomorrow
  • Python 3.11 merged to rawhide
  • MBS randomly fails to process builds
  • Rawhide compose failures recently (syslinux retirement, then python 3.11 merge) all fixed now
  • Business proceeding as usual

CentOS Stream

Goal of this Initiative

This initiative is working on CentOS Stream/Emerging RHEL to make this new distribution a reality. The goal of this initiative is to prepare the ecosystem for the new CentOS Stream.

Updates

  • CentOS Stream 8: Manually keeping regular RPMs and module RPMs updated on the koji.stream server as current updates are composed and released.

CentOS Duffy CI

Goal of this Initiative

Duffy is a system within CentOS CI infrastructure allowing tenants to provision and access machines (physical and/or virtual, of different architectures and configurations) for the purposes of CI testing. Development of Duffy is largely finished, we’re currently planning and testing deployment scenarios.

Updates

  • Release version 3.2.1
  • Docs, docs, docs and a Dojo

Package Automation (Packit Service)

Goal of this initiative

Automate RPM packaging of infra apps/packages

Updates

  • Mostly business as usual
  • Thanks again to all who are reviewing our PRs
  • Most of our GitHub critical apps are enabled now or close to being enabled

Flask-oidc: oauth2client replacement

Goal of this initiative

Flask-oidc is a library used across the Fedora infrastructure and is the client for ipsilon for its authentication. flask-oidc uses oauth2client. This library is now deprecated and no longer maintained. This will need to be replaced with authlib.

Updates:

  • POC working using authlib, tidying up code to prepare to submit a PR back to upstream

EPEL

Goal of this initiative

Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (or EPEL) is a Fedora Special Interest Group that creates, maintains, and manages a high-quality set of additional packages for Enterprise Linux, including, but not limited to, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS and Scientific Linux (SL), Oracle Linux (OL).

EPEL packages are usually based on their Fedora counterparts and will never conflict with or replace packages in the base Enterprise Linux distributions. EPEL uses much of the same infrastructure as Fedora, including a build system, Bugzilla instance, updates manager, mirror manager and more.

Updates

  • This week we have 6442 (+127)  packages, from 2882 (+76) source packages
  • Containerd and puppet retired from EPEL7 because of upstream EOL and multiple CVEs.
  • Caddy was updated, fixing 4 CVEs in EPEL9

Kindest regards,
CPE Team
