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

  • Thanks to darknao we have some test OpenShift alerting/monitoring in staging. Once it looks good there will roll out to all projects.
  • Got daily updating critpath working in OpenShift (kudos to AdamW)
  • Updated pesign / secure boot signing on kernel builders for CVE.
  • Started signing f38 with f39 key also to prep for branching next week.
  • BAU (SAML2 gitlab links, restarting rebooting, tickets

CentOS Infra including CentOS CI

Release Engineering

  • En route to FOSDEM

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

  • Continuing to sort out ELN builds from the Fedora 38 mass-rebuild.
    • Got a successful compose for the first time in a week
  • Working on changing the c8s workflow: We’re going to keep 5 last versions of each RPMs on the mirror, like we do with c9s. Vault will still contain everything.

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

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. 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

  • Refactor caching (Pagure, ongoing)
  • More Messaging Schemas
  • Plan test deployment into prod
