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.
Planning board


Fedora Infra

  • Openshift clusters (stg and prod) both upgraded to 4.11.
  • Got a new internal cert for bugzilla2fedmsg (it’s a pain, but documented now)
  • Fixed expired certs on the osbs clusters
  • Upgraded staging builders to f37
  • Openshift 3.11 clusters were finally taken down and removed!
  • Update/reboot cycle in progress. Staging was done Monday, a bunch more today and the rest in an outage on Wednesday afternoon.

CentOS Infra including CentOS CI

Release Engineering

  • Fedora 38 changes reviews
  • pagure-distgit release code release 1.13, rpm package in progress

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.


  • Finished importing modules for c8s, currently importing RPMs
  • Started cleaning up the CentOS Stream Jira board
  • ELN build failures under 30!


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 build system, bugzilla instance, updates manager, mirror manager and more.


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 to email or IRC.
The initiative’s goal 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. The community will profit from speedier notifications based on their 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.


  • Working on caching solutions for FASJSON and Datagrepper
  • Message sent when a rule has been updated
  • Bug fixes now that it’s running in staging
