I’m happy to announce that Meetbot Logs (or Mote) 2.0 is now live at meetbot.fedoraproject.org. Meetbot Logs allows the community to see the minutes and logs from meetings. The new version is a major rewrite and adds features like a calendar view, asynchronous loading, quicker search, and dark mode. It should also be easier to maintain and develop in the future.

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

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 This library is now deprecated and no longer maintained.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

Call for Projects and Mentors for Outreachy December-March Cohort

Fedora will be participating in the upcoming round of Outreachy (December 2021-March 2022) and we are looking for more projects and mentors!

Being a community of diverse people from various backgrounds and different walks of life, the Fedora Project has been participating as a mentoring organization for Outreachy internships for years. The Outreachy program is instrumental in providing a rich experience in working with free and open-source software. Fedora is a proud participant.

If you have a project idea for the upcoming round of Outreachy, open a ticket in the mentored projects repository. Even if you don’t have a project idea, you can volunteer to be a mentor for a project. As a mentor, you will guide interns through the completion of the project. We are also looking for general mentors for the facilitation of proper communication of feedback and evaluation with the interns working on the selected projects.

Please submit your project ideas and mentorship availability ASAP. The deadline for projects to Outreachy is September 23rd 29th. The Mentored Projects Coordinators will review your ideas and help you prep your project proposal to be submitted to Outreachy.

Mentoring can be a fulfilling pursuit. It is beneficial for you, the intern and applicants, the Fedora Project, and the overall open source ecosystem. Join us in fostering the growth of our community and the love of open source!
