CentOS 7.6.1810 release available for builds in CBS/Koji

Hi,

As announced
(<a href="https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2018-December/023082.html" title="https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2018-December/023082.html">https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2018-December/023082....</a>)
, CentOS 7.6.1810 is now available and realeased for the following
arches : x86_64, aarch64, ppc64le, armhfp
So that release is now the default one for the CBS/koji build tasks (and
all koji regen-repos tasks are currently running)

That means that for your next builds, you'll be building against
7.6.1810 (even if technically that was already the case with the
7.5.1804+updates+CR repositories)

That should also mean the end of the "freeze" wrt pushing tagged pkgs
for release to mirror.centos.org

Hi Fabian,

It looks like the sources are not yet present on vault.centos.org. is there an ETA for that?

Thanks,

Jacco

Usually Johnny waits some days before pushing those to vault to let your
mirror network going back to normal mode, and then it's possible for him
to push to vault nodes.

OTOH, as everything is available through git as authoritative source,
and also that src.rpm pkgs are also pushed to
<a href="https://buildlogs.centos.org" title="https://buildlogs.centos.org">https://buildlogs.centos.org</a> for *all* builds and *all* arches, the only
difference would be on vault to have the same src.rpm pkg signed

BTW, we start suffering from some HDD space on donated nodes with the
mirror network, especially for roles like debuginfo.centos.org and
vault.centos.org (containing also now SIGs src.rpm, so much more than
just the centos distro those days) : so we have to remove some nodes and
so the load is then shared between less nodes, meaning that it's not
sustainable .. I was even considering announcing shutting down those
services, due to lack of bandwidth/space .....

Just to add that , due to upstream decision, some packages are now
removed from the base os, and so can't be found anymore
So please read the upstream Release Notes about which pkgs were
deprecated and removed as that can mean also changing the way you build
on CBS/koji.

One example that was clear : I saw one build failing now because :

DEBUG util.py:417: Error: No Package found for golang >= 1.8

That's because golang was removed, so if your build needs it, you need
to tag-build one of the golang build that exists in CBS (fyi)
