What I have found interesting in Fedora during the week 45 of 2017

My highlights from the past week:

Fedora 27 Modular Server Beta & Fedora 27 Final are considered as Gold

On Thursday, November 9th, 2017 we have finally concluded the Fedora 27 Final compose as well as the Fedora 27 Modular Server Beta compose are ready to be released. The release date for both composes is November 14th at 14:00UTC. For more information you can check the meeting minutes from the Go/No-Go meeting.

Name of the Fedora Server release

During the past time there was a discussion what name we should be using for the Modular release of the Fedora Server edition. On the Server SIG meeting the last week a decision has been made to use Fedora Modular Server. The main reason why this name has been chosen is to avoid end-user confusion.

Fedora 27 Modular Server release validation

The Beta release of the Fedora 27 Modular Server was made under considerable pressure. To be sure we do not step aside from our quality standard, our QA team (namely Adam Williamson) has put together test matrices for the Modular Server and has aligned the Modular Server testing with the way we do validation of the standard release.

Changes Policy & Fedora Release Life Cycle

No More Alphas Change has implemented some changes in the way we plan and deliver Fedora Releases. During the Fedora 27 release we were improvising a bit to find the balance between the changes we needed to do and the overall stability of the release cycle. Finally, as the release is almost shipped, we have merged all the changes in Changes Policy & Fedora Release Life Cycle together with some tweaks and proposed a new versions of these documents. The draft of the Changes Policy as well as the draft of the Fedora Release Life Cycle  is now available for review. Once the review is done, I will bring these drafted documents to FESCo for the final approval. If you are interested in this, please contribute to the discussion on the devel@ mailing list.

Autumn elections

The preparation phase of the Autumn 2017 Elections is still in the progress. This Election cycle is following the schedule approved by Fedora Council and we are now collecting questions in our Election questionnaire. Anyone who would like to ask our candidates to FESCo, Council, Mindshare any question, can contribute into the Questionnaire. The collection of questions ends in one week on November 20th, 2017 at 23:59:59UTC.

Fedora 27: Let’s have an awesome release party!

Fedora 27 is now in Beta status. With another Fedora release not so far away, it’s time for the Ambassadors to plan their activities around the release. The most common activity for Ambassadors to do is organize release parties. A release party is also a great way for other contributors in the community to get involved with advocacy in their local regions. Learn how to organize a release party and get a badge for it in this article.

What I have found interesting in Fedora during the week 44 of 2017

My highlights from the past week:

Fedora 27 Server Beta & Fedora 27 Final are No-Go

On Thursday we met together with representatives of QA, FESCo, Release Engineering and few more people on so called Go/No-Go meeting. The goal was to determine whether the Fedora 27 Server Beta as well as Fedora 27 Final are ready to be released. Unfortunately we had to come up with conclusion that nor Fedora 27 Server Beta , nor Fedora 27 Final are ready to be released. We are going to meet once more on this Thursday, November 9nd, to revisit the status of these releases.

Autumn elections

As a consequence of the Fedora 27 Final release slip we are prolonging the period to collect questions for Questionnaire. The current schedule for the Elections looks as follows:

  • Oct 24 – Nov 20: Collection of questions for Questionnaire
  • Nov 21 – Dec 04: Nomination & Campaign period
  • Dec 05 – Dec 18: Voting period
  • Dec 19: Result Announcement

i686 SIG

On Friday 2017-Oct-30 FESCo has approved new SIG to take care of i686 issues. For more information please check the FESCo ticket #1737 or wiki page of the SIG.

And of course, the list above is not exhaustive and there is much more going on in Fedora community.

What I have found interesting in Fedora during the week 42 of 2017

After a week I would like to share some activities in Fedora happened since my last post:

Fedora 27 Server Beta is No-Go

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.

Fedora 27 Final Freeze

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.

Rawhide renamed to Bikeshed for the Modular Server

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.

New election app

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.

What I have found interesting in Fedora during the week 41 of 2017

After a week I would like to share some activities which happened during the past week:

Fedora 27 Server Beta is No-Go

On Thursday, 2017-Oct-12, we had 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 another round of the Go/No-Go meeting on Thursday, 2017-Oct-19 at 17:00 UTC, where we are going to determine the readiness of the F27 Server edition for Beta release. On Friday 2017-Oct-13 FESCo has allowed use of the Rain/Target date scheduling for the F27 Server Beta, so even we slip the F27 Server Beta for one week, the Final F27 Server release is not affected, for now.

New OpenStack SIG

Haïkel has announced a new SIG focused on OpenStack.

Firefox 57 update

Planned update of Firefox browser to version 57 seems to has provoked interesting discussions on devel@ mailing list (“Why is Fx 57 in Updates Testing?“, “Call for testing – Firefox 57“) and was even broad to FESCo. Reading the whole discussion reminds me how difficult is to balance on the edge of the latest updates and stability.

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.

 

What I have found interesting in Fedora during the week 40 of 2017

Interesting events or issues I was involved in or I noticed in the Fedora project and community which happened during the last week:

Fedora 27 Beta Release

On Tuesday October 3rd, we have released the F27 Beta Release. For more information please check the Announcement. To download the Beta please go to GetFedora page.

Fedora 27 Beta Freeze is over

As a subsequent step after the F27 Beta release, the freeze applied on updates has been lifted. The Final freeze is planned on October 17th.  For more information please check the F27 Schedule.

A new “batched” state in Bodhi

Randy Barlow has announced a new state implemented in Bodhi called “batched”. The purpose of this state is to have a state for packages waiting for weekly batch update push.  This will help in gating of updates if needed, so we might have a choice on planning of updates.

“What can I do for Fedora” is back

Thanks to Ralph and Patrick we have back the “What can I do for Fedora” application.  Anyone, interested in helping with Fedora, can now find some work more easily.

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.

Fedora 27 release dates and schedule

With the recent release of Fedora 26, the Fedora 27 release schedule is falling into place. Also worth noting, starting with Fedora 27, there is no longer an Alpha release. As of now, the current Fedora 27 release schedule is as follows.

  • Beta: 2017 September 19th
    • “Rain” date: 2017 September 26th
  • Final release: 2017 October 24th
    • “Rain” date: 2017 October 31st

These dates may change as development on Fedora 27 progresses, so always check the official schedule for the most accurate version of the Fedora 27 schedule.

Fedora 26 release dates and schedule

With the recent release of Fedora 25, the Fedora 26 release schedule is falling into place. The current Fedora 26 schedule projects a release date of July 4th, 2017. Fedora 26 Alpha is slated for release on April 4th, 2017 and Beta is aiming for June 6th, 2017.

These dates may change as development on Fedora 26 progresses, so always check the schedule for the most accurate version of the Fedora 26 schedule.
