Friday, 2019-09-27 is the Fedora 31 Modularity Test Day!
We need your help to test if everything runs smoothly.
The Modularity Team was able to hold a session at Flock 2019 to gather feedback and discuss a few issues. The session was well attended and there was a bunch of great discussion.
We started out by spending 15 minutes, measured on a stopwatch(!) gathering the most pressing issues. The audience and the panel came up with quite a few ideas.Continue reading
Come and discuss Modularity at Flock! There are three sessions ready that will help you decide when to make a module, how to make them, and a discussion about making everything Modularity work better.
Are you a maintainer of packages in Fedora and can’t decide when to use modules? Well, this talk is right for you. In about 15 minutes it will cover a few specific use cases and demonstrate what Modularity solves and what it doesn’t. We’ll have about 30 minutes to discuss any other topics the audience comes up with.
If you decided you want to use modules, this might be a talk for you. Merlin will walk you through the steps of putting together a module, building it, testing it, and more! All of this in 25 minutes!
Making modules has not been always an easy process. The technology is very new and there are still some things to finish. Come and help us make it better! We’ll have half a day dedicated to discuss, design, make plans, hack, and more.
This blog post has been written to summarize the problem, explain how we got here, offer potential solutions that would work right now, and to set a common ground for a discussion on the devel list about how to address this and similar problems properly.Continue reading
Tuesday, 2018-04-10 is the Fedora 28 Add-on Modularity Test Day! As part of the change, we’ll be testing the new add-on modules on the latest Fedora Server.
We need your help to test if everything runs smoothly!
Many of you would have read the amazing article which came out months ago!
Featuring one of major change of Fedora 28 Server we would test to make sure that all the functionalities are performing as they should. Continue reading
Fedora’s Modularity initiative aims to make it easy for packagers to create alternative versions of software and for users to consume those streams simply. We’ve been working on this for several years, resulting in the “Boltron” prototype this summer and the recent Fedora Modular Server beta. Feedback shows that these test releases didn’t meet the goal, and we’re incorporating that in a modified design which we think will. We plan to demo the new approach by DevConf.cz and FOSDEM.
My highlights from the past week:
After a week I would like to share some activities in Fedora happened since my last post:
On Thursday, 2017-Oct-19, we had a second round of the Go/No-Go meeting for the delayed F27 Beta release of the Server (modular) edition. Result of the meeting is No-Go due to missing Release Candidate compose. We are going to run third round of the Go/No-Go meeting on Thursday, 2017-Oct-26 at 17:00 UTC together with the Go/No-Go meeting for F27 Final release.
Since Tuesday, October 17th we are in a Freeze period for F27 Final. It means the F27 Final release is pretty close and we are going to run Go/No-Go meeting on this Thursday, October 26th as well as F27 Final Readiness meeting.
This is not a news from the last week, however I have realized not many people know about this. At the beginning of October has been “rawhide” renamed to “bikeshed” for the Fedora Modular server. So, nowadays you can find the latest modular builds on Koji under the latest-Fedora-Modular-Bikeshed directory.
Thanks to Ryan Lerch, Justin Flory and Pingou we now have installed a new version of the Voting Application in the staging environment. Hopefully the new version will be available for the upcoming elections once F27 is made GA.
And of course, the list above is not exhaustive and there is much more going on in Fedora community. The list above just summarizing some tasks which has drawn my attention.
If I had to choose one buzzword for Flock 2017 at Cape Cod, it would be ‘modularity’. Modules, module building, module testing, and module explaining seemed to be all over the place. I attended to give a workshop (with Aneta ŠP) about a proposed way to inject new life into the Fedora Documentation Project. Continue reading
