Reboot weekly Cloud SIG meetings

Hi,

since we have a newer group (CloudStack) joining us, we decided to
reboot our weekly meetings.
In order to find a timeslot that suits everyone, I suggest that we use
a whenisgood poll:
<a href="http://whenisgood.net/bpqn4fn" title="http://whenisgood.net/bpqn4fn">http://whenisgood.net/bpqn4fn</a>

Please don't forget to set your timezone when answering the poll. I'll
publish results asap

New SIG: OpenStack

Hi,

I'd like to announce the beginning of a new SIG: OpenStack.

During these last years, I've been more or less maintaining OpenStack
clients, and I'd like to pass over
that (burden) to a SIG.
OpenStack clients/libraries are quite tied to each other, so it is
difficult to maintain them without provenpackager
permissions, and it is also a lot of work to sync requirements, do the
testing.

Ceph (alt/multi)arch rebuild

Hi,

I'm currently trying to enable OpenStack on ppc64le architecture and
it requires Ceph on ppc64le.
So I applied to join to the Storage SIG (sponsor needed!) so I can
help with the Ceph bootstrap and maintenance.

H.

Aarch64 bootstrap status

Hi,

Many thanks to Thomas who spent his evening merging aarch64 builds
(and Fabian for enabling the arch in our CBS tags!)
Here's a summary of the bootstrap:

Erlang and texlive are still building, but the biggest remaining chunk
will be building v8 on aarch64 (and node.js) but overall we're good.
Next steps will be fixing broken builds and proper testing on real hardware.

H.

Bootstrapping a new arch

Hi,

There was various discussions about enabling aarch64 architecture for
Cloud SIG OpenStack repositories.
And likely others are coming, so I'd like to confirm with a wider
audience about the proper course of action.
So we can document it and share that experience with other SIGs.

Arrfab suggested the following:
* scratch builds with archoverride of existing arch-dependent builds
* ask CBS admin to merge the task with existing builds using mergeScratch.

I find this process simple and efficient, but I'm worried about how it scales.
In my case, I have about 250 binary packages (including the

Broken dependencies in CentOS Extras

Hi,

while running repoclosure on Cloud SIG repositories, I found out that
cockpit had missing dependencies.

Last metadata expiration check: 0:00:02 ago on Wed Jul 6 19:53:59 2016.
package: cockpit-ostree-0.108-1.el7.centos.x86_64 from centos-extras

Could be fine, but it's best to check with you guys.

status of virt7-docker repository?

Hi,

I'm considering to add virt7-docker repository as a dependency for the
openstack repo from Cloud SIG.
It seems that it's not consumable yet and some packages like
Kubernetes are outdated.

Could you update me with the current status and if there is anything
we can do to help?

Ceph/Storage SIG

Hi,

In order to be truly independent from EPEL, the Cloud SIG/OpenStack is
looking to consume Ceph from Storage SIG repo.
Seems that the only builds are from oVirt and testing build targets,
so I'd like to confirm what are the plans to deliver Ceph if there are
any?

koji client issue with CBS with python >= 2.7.9

Hi,

I finally found a workaround to fix CBS issues when using python >=
2.7.9 (like Fedora 22 and above)
<a href="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1231616" title="https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1231616">https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1231616</a>
Though it's dirty, but it's no different from python 2.7.8 and older behavior.

Starting python 2.7.9, python ssl standard module enable certificate
verification by default, hence causing koji client to fail when
interacting with CBS.
What I do not get is why withe the same koki client I have no issues
with Fedora Koji instance, and why it fails with CBS.
People using F21 and older or CentOS, won't experience that issue.

I suspect either

Converge EPEL and CBS

Hi,

Since the CentOS acquihire, there was a lot of discussion about EPEL's future.
Since the FOSDEM meetup between Fedora/CentOS folks, there was little
progress on that topic

After a discussion with a Smooge, I decided to come with a proposal,
knowing that
1. Fedora wants to keep EPEL within it umbrella
2. That CentOS SIGs are in practice rebuilding a lot of EPEL packages
(or retag them for other SIGs)
leading to poor maintenance as they don't follow EPEL tickets for all
their dependencies.

Switching to SPDX in license tags

Hi,

I would like to get feedback from Fedora Legal and also my fellow
contributors about considering
SPDX.

SPDX (Software Package Data Exchange) is a specification hosted by the
Linux Foundation defining
a standard format for communicating components, licenses and
copyrights associated with a software package.
<a href="https://spdx.org/" title="https://spdx.org/">https://spdx.org/</a>

It would make it much easier collaborating with other distributions
and upstream projects.

On a more practical side, it would mean standardizing on SPDX short
identifier to design licenses
and exceptions in all our packages.

Your

Juno/EL6 clients

Hi,

just to notify you that I finished rebuilding Juno clients on EL6.

They are currently available in a (temporary) repository, you could already test
them by executing the following command:

cat << EOF > /etc/yum.repos.d/cloud6-testing.repo
[cloud6-testing]
name=cbs
baseurl=http://cbs.centos.org/repos/cloud6-testing/x86_64/os/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
EOF

If you find any EL6 specific issues, please either open a ticket in RDO bugzilla
assigned to hguemar AT redhat DOT com or contacting me directly.

Best regards,
H.

separate targets for Cloud SIG.

Hi,

While the RDO CI deployment is moving forward, here's an (urgent)
topic to deal with.
We will start importing the next OpenStack release (Kilo) packages and
that requires
having separate targets in CBS since we'd maintain multiple releases who may use
common deps but with incompatible versions.
I suspect that the other cloud projects will have the same issues.

I'd suggest that we put this topic into the next meeting.

Proposal:
cloud7-el7-common (common stuff that are currently in EPEL) => shared
by all projects
inherited by cloud7-el7-<project>-<release>

Regards,
H.

Governance change for Fedora Project

Dear contributors,

Following the current discussion about governance, a proposal to
change the governance model of the project has been made during the
"Governance for Fedora.Next workshop" in Flock Prague 2014.
We request your feedbacks about before considering its adoption or rejection.

* dissolving the current board
* the board will be replaced by a "community council" (final name to be chosen)
* the community council will be the main governance body of the Fedora
Project, its role will be to define a shared vision accross the
project and the highest decision-making power.

semi-away notice

Hi,

yesterday, I broke my left arm, so my response time will be
significantly slowed down for about 4 weeks.
I kindly ask my co-maintainers and provenpackagers to look after my
packages.
I'll still be around, i'll also finish my packages reviews.

AFK notice

Hi,

I'm currently moving to a new $HOME and it might take few weeks to set
up my internet connection.
Though I'll be able to answer emails and say hi on IRC using my LTE
connection, consider me AFK until then.
So I kindly ask my co-maintainers and if required provenpackagers to
take care of my packages during that time.

H.

Retiring Gazpacho from F20+

Hi,

since Gazpacho hasn't been maintained fro years and it requires an older
version of python-kiwi than currently packaged in F20, i'm retiring.
It has been superseeded by Glade 3 and no other packages should require it.

Best regards,
H.
