Attempting to contact unresponsive maintainers: dkaspar flaper87

I'd like to appologize for the delay in this email.

The notices I get were being filtered and I didn't realize I wasn't
seeing them for a while. ;(

We've been told that the email addresses for these package maintainers
are no longer valid.

Planned Outage - src.fedoraproject.org - 2019-05-03 19:00 UTC

Planned Outage - src.fedoraproject.org - 2019-05-03 19:00 UTC

There will be an outage starting at 2019-05-03 19:00 UTC ,
which will last approximately 1 hour.

To convert UTC to your local time, take a look at
<a href="http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/UTCHowto" title="http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/UTCHowto">http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/UTCHowto</a>
or run:

date -d '2019-05-03 19:00UTC'

Reason for outage:

We will be adding additional disk space to src.fedoraproject.org.

Retirement of cgit access to src.fedoraproject.org

Greetings,

In the past, src.fedoraproject.org git repositories have been accessable
via the pagure[1] interface or via the cgit web interface.

We have been planning some changes to the way the backend git
repositories are stored on src.fedoraproject.org: from local bare repos
to repoSpanner[2] clustered and distributed repositories. This will
allow multiple frontends for that data, including sharing them with
git.centos.org.

This change however meant that cgit could no longer have access to
the bare git repositories and thus would no longer work.

announcing HTTPS pushing to dist-git/src.fedoraproject.org for packagers and non-packagers

Greetings.

I'm happy to announce that you can now use https to push commits

to src.fedoraproject.org.

Maintainer test instances

Greetings.

This is a periodic reminder that we have some test instances setup for
package maintainers. Please see:

<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Machine_Resources_For_Package_Maintainers" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Machine_Resources_For_Package_Maintainers">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Machine_Resources_For_Package_Mainta...</a>

for more information.

Additionally, I have just added 2 aarch64 instances (running Fedora 29).

I hope folks will find them useful.

mxml license change

The mxml package ( Minature XML devel library )

has changed it's license from LGPLv2+ to ASL 2.0 with exception with the
3.0 release (I am just about to push out).

( exception is locateed at
<a href="https://github.com/michaelrsweet/mxml/blob/master/NOTICE" title="https://github.com/michaelrsweet/mxml/blob/master/NOTICE">https://github.com/michaelrsweet/mxml/blob/master/NOTICE</a> )

signing status

Just wanted to update everyone on our current status.

As you know from the other thread:

* The mass rebuild happened and finished.
* The mass rebuild side tag was merged into the f30-pending tag
(to make sure everything was signed).
* In the middle of the night our autosign box stopped processing.
* The next morning this was noticed and a request for a replacement
motherboard was sent.
* Since that was going to take a day, we setup another machine to do
autosigning.
* That machine started processing the backlog, but also stopped
processing a few times (waiting on koji).
* Finally we set back

A smart cache-y proposal for composes

So, I had an idea of one method of attack for composes and lifecycles
that I thought I would toss out there to see what others thought of it.

Instead of redesigning and reimplementing our current build/compose/test
pipeline we improve it by making the current process cache as much of
everything as it possibly can and listening and operating on any changes
in inputs.

Attempting to contact unresponsive maintainers: sross, ryansb, mpreisle

Greetings, we've been told that the email addresses for these package
maintainers are no longer valid. I'm starting the unresponsive
maintainer policy to find out if they are still interested in
maintaining their packages (and if so, have them update their email
addresses in FAS).

If they're not interested in maintaining or we can't locate them in 1
week, I'll have FESCo orphan the packages so that others can take them
over.

If you have a way to contact these maintainers, please let them know
that we'd appreciate knowing what to do with their packages.

some trac plugins looking for point of contacts

Hey all.

I have:

trac-bazaar-plugin
trac-git-plugin
trac-iniadmin-plugin
trac-mercurial-plugin
trac-ticketdelete-plugin

Which are all FTBFS (likely due to unversioned python2 use).

I don't use trac anymore, so I am going to orphan these, unless anyone
would like to take them on, in which case I'd be happy to transfer them
to you.

I'll keep them until saturday, then orphan and folks can file releng
tickets after that to get them.

don't have at least one tester at Beta may be dropped and not shipped in
Final, so PLEASE make sure at least someone tests.

Spin maintainers are also encouraged to test their spin more often and
