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

  • Accidentally enabled rhbz_mail FAS field in toddlers
    • Sent late announcement with guide how to fix the issue – fortunately this only impacted few users
    • Fixed mail to correspond with this change
  • Got new *.fedoraproject.org cert finally correctly issued (worked with RHIT and digicert)
  • New pagure-dist-git in production (closing several long term tickets). Many thanks to zlopez and lenkaseg
  • All builders updated/rebooted and made ready for mass rebuild
  • Koji hubs updated to 1.31.1
  • Bodhi upgraded to 7.0.1
  • Business as usual, tickets project adjustments, etc.

CentOS Infra including CentOS CI

  • Working on secureboot required infra/tags in kojihub
  • Migrating ns1/ns2.centos.org to rhel8 (internal RH networks: rdu2/iad2)
  • IPA TLS certs monitoring points and renewal process
  • Preparing REDHAT.COM => IPA.REDHAT.COM auth migration for Stream infra (staging env first)

Release Engineering

  • Fedora 38 mass rebuild

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

  • More stream 8 composes, on both the old and new infrastructure. It might not be perfect, but the differences are small, and we’ve had a successful fully complete production compose, with images.

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 buildsystem, bugzilla instance, updates manager, mirror manager and more.

Updates

  • EPEL 9 is up to 13,162 (+158) packages from 4,880 (+52) source packages

FMN replacement

Goal of this initiative

FMN (Fedora-Messaging-Notification) is a web application allowing users to create filters on messages sent to (currently) fedmsg and forward these as notifications on to email or IRC.
The goal of the initiative is mainly to add fedora-messaging schemas, create a new UI for a better user experience and create a new service to triage incoming messages to reduce the current message delivery lag problem. The community will profit from speedier notifications based on own preferences (IRC, Matrix, Email), unified fedora project to one message service and human-readable results in Datagrepper.
Also, CPE tech debt will be significantly reduced by dropping the maintenance of fedmsg altogether.

Updates

  • Rework backend caching (ongoing)
  • Messaging schemas (ongoing)
