Highlights of the week
Infrastructure & Release Engineering
Goal of this Initiative
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.
- Move batcave to rhel9
- Promoting mirror.fcix.net to Fedora tier1 access
- Re-installed all x86_64 buildvm’s to work around a 32bit inode issue
CentOS Infra including CentOS CI
- New stream mirror: https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issue/1221
- New stream mirror: https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issue/1213
- New Centos 7 & 8 stream mirror: https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issue/1212
- Decommission old sponsored nodes
- Mass rebuild F39
- Stop composing modular repositories for Fedora 39 and newer
- Get toolbox composes working
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.
- Cross-referenced at-risk EPEL packages (EPEL maintainers considering reducing EPEL participation) with most common EPEL packages among customers
- Updated gnome-shell-extension-appindicator in epel9 to resolve bug
- Filed Fedora Mindshare ticket to create 2023 EPEL survey
