Outreachy 2019 with Fedora Happiness Packets: application period

Outreachy provides remote internship under Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) Communities to the under represented groups in technology. It runs twice an year, mid-year and end of year. I decided to participate in its summer run.

Why Outreachy?

Before I get into anything, as a rule of thumb, I ask myself why? Why is it that I wanted to participate in Outreachy?

FAS username search in Fedora Happiness Packets

I have been recently working on incorporation of Fedora Accounts System’s username search functionality in the project “Fedora Happiness Packets”. After weeks of working, it’s so overwhelming to see its on the verge of completion and being incorporated in the project.

About the project

The search functionality is used to find the name and email address of Fedora Accounts System’s users from their username, making it a lot easier for any sender to send happiness packets to a particular user with the knowledge of just their username.

Getting started with python-fedora API

For incorporating the search, python-fedora API is used to retrieve the data. After authenticating as a genuine fas-user by passing credentials to AccountSystem, we can retrieve the data using the method person_by_username of a fas2 object.

Stories from the amazing world of release-monitoring.org

How I got here

One wise man once said: “It is always best to start from the beginning”.

Our story begins in August 2018. I was summoned by the Archmage (my ex-manager Jim Perrin) to be part of the mage conclave (Fedora Infrastructure team) and take care of a world that laid abandoned for some time. The name of this realm is release-monitoring.org and Jim recommended I start on the continent of Anitya (web server).

Call for maintainers: Fedora package tagger

The Fedora package tagger application is looking for new maintainers by April 5, 2018; otherwise, Fedora Infrastructure will retire the app.

Before DevConfCZ 2018, the Fedora Infrastructure team met to review the “state of the apps” in Fedora’s infrastructure. The fedora-tagger application is currently broken since the decision to retire PkgDB. The core Infrastructure team does not have bandwidth and time to focus on this application, since there are other areas to focus on at the upcoming Infrastructure Hackathon.

Migration from Trac / FedoraHosted

Earlier in Kevin’s announcement,  it was announced that Fedora Infrastructure will retire fedorahosted.org. They urge all its active projects to move to pagure.io (or any other place they feel best meets their needs). The tentatively scheduled retirement date is February 28th, 2017.

After this announcement, there are many discussions and movement in different sub-projects.  Some teams have already completed the migration successfully.

FedoraHosted sunset: 2017-02-28

Fedora Infrastructure currently maintains two different sites for general open source code hosting: fedorahosted.org and pagure.io.

Fedorahosted.org was established in late 2007 using Trac for issues and wiki pages, Fedora Account System groups for access control and source uploads, and offering a variety of Source Control Management tools (git, svn, hg, bzr). With the rise of new workflows and source repositories, fedorahosted.org has ceased to grow, adding just one new project this year and a handful the year before.
