Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-11-20 blocker review meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the blocker review meeting for
Monday, as there are no proposed Server Final blockers at present.
Please yell if you think we will need to run a meeting. However,
I'm on vacation on Monday, so if we do need to run a meeting,
someone else will have to lead. Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-11-20 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. We've met
the last couple of weeks, and I don't see any urgent topics for
discussion at present. If you're aware of anything important we have to
discuss this week, please do reply to this mail and we can go ahead and
run the meeting. However, I'm on vacation on Monday, so someone else
will have to lead. Thanks!

Greetings testers!

It's time for another meeting! We've skipped the last few weeks, and
while we're still on F27 Final validation, we do have at least one
topic I'd like to discuss.

Note that daylight savings time ends in most of North America this
weekend, so we'll be changing the meeting time to 16:00 UTC.

Hi folks! We currently have only one proposed freeze exception for
Fedora 27. However, in case more blockers show up over the weekend,
I'm scheduling a review meeting for Monday; if there aren't any,
I'll just run a very quick meeting where we don't do anything.

Note that daylight savings time ends in most of North America this
weekend, so we'll be changing the meeting time to 17:00 UTC.

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-10-30 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting today. Current

so please come along to that if you can. Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-10-23 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. We synced
up on status this week, and I don't think there's anything else we
need a meeting for at present. There *will* be a blocker review
meeting at 1600 in #fedora-blocker-review, so please come along to
that if you can. Thanks!

Greetings testers!

It's time for another meeting! Let's call this the Everyone Tell Adam
What's Going On meeting, as I'm trying to catch up on return from
vacation :)

If anyone has any other items for the agenda, please reply to this
email and suggest them! Thanks.

== Proposed Agenda Topics ==

1. Previous meeting follow-up
2.

Interdependent packages *must* go in the same update - a reminder (ref. nss and nspr)

There are currently separate updates for nss 3.33.0 and nspr 4.17.0 in
both Fedora 26 and 27. However, nss 3.33.0 requires nspr 4.17.0.

As a reminder, this is a violation of the Updates Policy:

<a href="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy#Updating_inter-dependent_packages" title="https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy#Updating_inter-dependent_packages">https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Updates_Policy#Updating_inter-dependent_p...</a>

"When one updated package requires another (or more than one other),
the packages should be submitted together as a single update."

The problem with doing things this way is that, if the nss update
happened to be pushed stable before the nspr update (which could easily
happen due to human error, network issues etc.

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-09-11 Fedora QA Meeting (and blocker review meeting)

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting tomorrow. There's
nothing urgent to discuss that I'm aware of, and the focus for this
coming week will likely be Beta validation testing. There *will* be a
blocker review meeting at 1600 in #fedora-blocker-review, so please
come along to that if you can. Thanks!

Fedora 27 update karma requests

Hi folks! It's that time again when I ask for folks to test updates
that fix F27 blocker and freeze exception bugs, and provide karma
(feedback) in Bodhi.

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-08-28 Fedora QA Meeting (and blocker review meeting)

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting tomorrow. I'll be
travelling to Flock, as I suspect a lot of other folks will be too.

For the same reason I think tomorrow would be a bad time for a blocker
review meeting, but we *do* need to run one, so I'll try and schedule
one for later in the week, with Flock folks attending in person, if
possible.

If anyone does want to go ahead and run either meeting, please do say
so. Thanks!

2017-08-21 @ 16:00 UTC - Fedora 27 Blocker Review Meeting

# F27 Blocker Review meeting
# Date: 2017-08-21
# Time: 16:00 UTC
# Location: #fedora-blocker-review on irc.freenode.net

Hi folks! We currently have 8 proposed Beta blockers and 5 proposed
Final blockers to review, so let's have a Fedora 27 blocker review
meeting.

If you have time today, you can take a look at the proposed or
accepted blockers before the meeting - the full lists can be found
here: <a href="https://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/" title="https://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/">https://qa.fedoraproject.org/blockerbugs/</a> .

We'll be evaluating these bugs to see if they violate any of the
Release Criteria and warrant the blocking of a release if they're not
fixed.

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-08-21 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting tomorrow. I don't have
anything super important for the agenda. If you're aware of anything
important we have to discuss this week, please do reply to this mail
and we can go ahead and run the meeting. Thanks!

openQA test failures due to typing errors

Hi folks! Another note for anyone paying attention to openQA test
results.

Since 2017-08-09 there's been kind of a flood of failures caused by
'typing errors' - that is, when the test runner is trying to type a
string into the test VM and it doesn't get through correctly (usually
due to one or more keypresses being dropped).

Many 'map' SELinux denials in current Rawhide

Hi folks!

Just wanted to give a heads-up on this: it seems that a recent selinux-
policy update, 3.13.1-269 , introduced a new permission called 'map'.
This seems to have resulted in rather a large amount of new SELinux
denials for this permission in various cases. Some are fairly serious -
e.g.

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting tomorrow. I don't have

openQA failures caused by arch mismatch

Hi, folks! This is just a heads-up for anyone who's been watching the
openQA test results for an update, or something, and been confused.

A few days ago we added a new ppc64 openQA worker host box; ultimately
we're aiming to enable some of the openQA tests to run on ppc64 as well
as x86_64 and i686.
