For a couple of months, part of the Community Platform Engineering (CPE) team has been focusing on making the changes needed in Bodhi to enable the rawhide gating change proposal.Continue reading
Below you will find my report from openSUSE Conference 2019 (oSC19) where I gave a talk Rust packaging: Cross-distro collaboration done right. Also I have decided to go some parts back on bicycle, so on the the bottom you will find story about that.
The openSUSE Conference is the annual openSUSE community event that brings people from around the world together to meet and collaborate. The organized talks, workshops, and BoF sessions provide a framework around more casual meet ups and hack sessions. A party here and there provides the time to relax and have fun, making connections on a more personal level. The conference was held in Germany, in the very nice city — and origin of SUSE — Nuremberg (Nürnberg).Continue reading
The desk in the wizard tower was full of manuscripts, reports from workers and written complaints from outside entities (users). It was a long week. I waved my hand to add more light to this room. Simple spell that is helping me to concentrate.
There was a figure in the door. “Come inside, traveler. I’m glad you are here. There are plenty of new things I want to share with you.”Continue reading
The Future chamber was lit by hundreds of candles with strange symbols glowing on the walls. In the center of the chamber stood I, wearing the ceremonial robe and preparing for the task that lies before me.
Somebody opened the doors, I turned around to see, who that could be. “Oh, a pleasant surprise, traveler. Stand near the door and watch this, you will love it.” I focused back to my thoughts and added. “Today I will show you the future that is waiting for this realm, but first we need to see current situation to understand the changes.”Continue reading
The darkness is slowly falling on my wizard tower, where I’m spending most of the time, when working on the new stuff in realm of the release-monitoring.org. But if you already arrived I could give you some of my time. You probably want to know what I’m working on. It’s not really a secret, but if you insist, I will tell you what happened in the realm in past weeks. So take a chair and hear my words.Continue reading
The Federated Message Bus, or Fedmsg, is used within the Fedora Infrastructure to easily connect services using ZeroMQ publishers and subscribers. This library is now deprecated in favour of Fedora Messaging.
Fedora Messaging provides a framework for declaring message schemas and a set of APIs to publish and consume messages to and from AMQP brokers.
In the project Fedora Happiness Packets, Fedmsg was set up to send messages to the Bus so that Fedora Badges could be awarded to the sender when they send a Happiness Packet, i.e an email worth of appreciation! My piece in this jigsaw was to migrate from Fedmsg to Fedora Messaging in this containerized project.Continue reading
Welcome traveler and sit by our fire. You probably want to know what is happening in the realm of release-monitoring.org. So lets take your place and hear my story.Continue reading
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.
Before I get into anything, as a rule of thumb, I ask myself why? Why is it that I wanted to participate in Outreachy?Continue reading
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.
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.
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
