Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-02-12 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. It's a
public holiday here in Canada, and I don't think there are any urgent
topics at this time. We'll definitely catch up with a meeting next
week.

If anyone would like to have a meeting, and is willing to run it in my
place, please just go ahead and send an announcement mail (and, of
course, show up to run the meeting on Monday). Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-02-12 blocker review meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the blocker review meeting for
Monday. Once again there are no proposed blockers for Beta or Final
at this time, so nothing to talk about. Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-02-05 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. I'll be
traveling again, and I don't think there are any urgent topics at this
time.

place, please just go ahead and send an announcement mail (and, of
course, show up to run the meeting on Monday). Thanks!

2018-01-29 @ 17:00 UTC - Fedora 28 Blocker Review Meeting

# F28 Blocker Review meeting
# Date: 2018-01-29
# Time: 17:00 UTC
# Location: #fedora-blocker-review on irc.freenode.net

Hi folks! We have two proposed blockers for Fedora 28 Beta and one
for Fedora 28 Final, so let's have a review meeting today.

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.

Greetings testers!

Apologies for the late notice, but we haven't met for a few weeks, so I
thought we could do the meeting tomorrow - there's a few topics we
could talk about.

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. Fedora 28 mass rebuild
3. Update gating (and other gating)
4.

Update gating: status update and info for owners of blocked updates

Hi folks!

So, I just wrote a note updating the status of the update gating
situation, in the FESCo ticket where turning the gating on was
approved.

DNF crashes on group operations in Fedora 27

Just a quick note if you've been seeing strange errors this morning,
like dnf crashing when doing something like a 'groupinstall' or a
'group update': it seems there was a storage issue during
synchronization of repodata for the most recent update push, and that's
causing problems like this. releng is doing an emergency push to get
the data regenerated, which should clean this up.

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-01-22 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. It's been a
couple of weeks, but I don't have anything super urgent for discussion,
and at the time of the meeting I'm likely to be trying to take a shower
after 16 hours of traveling from the West Coast to Czechia, so possibly
not in shape to run a meeting!

If anyone would like to have a meeting, and is willing to run it in my
place, please just go ahead and send an announcement mail (and, of
course, show up to run the meeting on Monday). Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-01-22 blocker review meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the blocker review meeting for
Monday. There are only two proposed blockers, which doesn't seem worth
running a meeting for. HOWEVER, I do suggest that folks take a look at
the proposed blockers and vote in-bug, so we can move forward on them.
Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-01-15 blocker review meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the blocker review meeting for
tomorrow. There's only one proposed blocker, which doesn't seem worth
running a meeting for. Thanks!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-01-15 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting tomorrow. We met last
week, and I'm not aware of anything urgent for discussion that's arisen
in the mean time - no more really major Changes seem to have shown up,
or anything. If you do have anything for discussion, please reply to
this email and we can run the meeting. Thanks!

Call for testing: kernel 4.14.13-200.fc26 / 4.14.13-300.fc27 - initial Spectre mitigations

Hi folks!

Kernel updates for Fedora 26 and Fedora 27 are now available with
initial mitigations for both Spectre variants. As the update
description states:

"This is also the first update to contain some spectre mitigations.
Some patches for variant 1 as well as the initial retpoline build for
variant 2. These variant 2 mitigations will improve with further
patches, and once compiler support is improved."

As for the Meltdown fix, the testing we're primarily interested here is
just to boot the kernel and verify that it doesn't break anything
unexpected.

2018-01-08 @ 17:00 UTC - Fedora 28 Blocker Review Meeting

# F28 Blocker Review meeting
# Date: 2018-01-08
# Time: 17:00 UTC
# Location: #fedora-blocker-review on irc.freenode.net

Hi folks! We have six proposed blockers for Fedora 28 Beta, so let's
have a review meeting on Monday.

If you have time over the weekend, 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.

Call for testing: updates to address today's CPU/kernel vulnerability

Hi folks!

So you might have read some stories today about an issue that's being
described as a design flaw in some CPUs which makes it possible for
unprivileged users on an affected system to read from privileged memory
locations.

It seems like there are some complex questions still being figured out
about this (like exactly what CPUs are and are not affected, and what
practical consequences there are in various cases), but our kernel team
has decided that we should at least ship a preliminary fix for this
issue that should address it for x86_64 CPUs.

Accordingly, updates are now going out

Firefox "Looking Glass" fiasco

So in case you haven't heard of it (or noticed about it), there was a
kerfuffle in Firefox land recently about this:

<a href="https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/16/16784628/mozilla-mr-robot-arg-plugin-firefox-looking-glass" title="https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/16/16784628/mozilla-mr-robot-arg-plugin-firefox-looking-glass">https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/16/16784628/mozilla-mr-robot-arg-plugin...</a>

As part of a tie-in with an American TV show, Mozilla thought it'd be a
great idea to silently install a cryptically-named addon in all(?)
Firefox deployments.

Proposal to CANCEL: 2017-12-04 blocker review meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the blocker review meeting for
Monday, as there would only be a couple of F28 bugs to consider and
it's not worth having a meeting for that.

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the blocker review meeting for

someone else will have to lead. Thanks!
