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.

Modularity Infrastructure Design

Co-authored by Courtney Pacheco and Ralph Bean

Note: This article is a follow-up to Introduction to Modularity.


Introduction

The purpose of our Modularity initiative is to support the building, maintaining, and shipping of modular things. So, in order to ensure these three requirements are met, we need to design a framework for building and composing the distribution.

In terms of the framework, in general, we are concerned about the possibility of creating an exponential number of component combinations with independent lifecycles. That is, when the number of component combinations becomes too large, we will not be able to manage them. So that we don’t accidentally make our lives worse, we must limit the number of supported modules with a policy and provide infrastructure automation to reduce the amount of manual work required.

Using your Fedora email alias with Gmail

Gmail is a popular email service and web client for browsing, receiving, and sending email. Gmail is used by billions of people across the world. It’s one of the simplest, most accessible email services even with being full of features. Did you know that it is possible to read and reply to other email services directly from Gmail? I’ve been doing this for years. Here is how to do it with your Fedora (fedoraproject.org) email alias.

Taskotron Results to Notifications

Taskotron: Problem, Solution, Implementation

With Taskotron not sending comments to Bodhi anymore, there was no easy way to be notified about task results. This changed about a month ago when Taskotron started emitting fedmsgs so results started arriving to packagers. Last week, we fine-tuned notifications so packagers have more power over what result notifications they receive. Let’s have a look what are the defaults and what you can do to change them to suit your needs.

Friday Fedora Web Dev Clinic

This post was originally shared on Ralph Bean’s personal blog.


After talking with mleonova at devconf the other week, we got the idea in our heads to hold a weekly “web dev clinic” over video chat for the #fedora-apps crew. It will be a video chat lasting ~1 hour, once a week where, if you’re working on Fedora web apps or websites, you can come and either get help on a problem you’re facing, or show off your work, or both.

Web Dev Clinic Time

We’re going to try for a first meeting this coming Friday at 15:00 UTC in this video channel. We’ll run it a few weeks in a row and see how it goes.. maybe continue indefinitely?

Mailing List Migrations: Hyperkitty, Mailman3

Fedora <3 Hyperkitty

Hyperkitty is here

The Fedora Engineering team has been working on a new system for our mailing lists. Mailman 3 came out earlier this year and it has a new shiny web UI: Hyperkitty.

The Fedora Hosted lists will be migrated on November 16th, and the Fedora Project lists later in the week. After migration you should be able to use the new Hyperkitty UI to post and read the lists if you choose or continue to get emails in the traditional way.

Changes in headers and other features

There may be some changes in some headers, so if you filter your list emails be ready to adjust your filters. See wiki page below for details:

Some lists using mailman2 features not yet available in mailman3 will be migrated later. More information as well as current lists migrated, being migrated and deferred for migration can be found at:

Hyperkitty migration help

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the Infrastructure list.

If you find a problem or issue, please file a Fedora Infrastructure ticket and we will work to fix things for your case or bug.

Regards,
— The Fedora Infrastructure team
