Greetings testers!

We're getting close to Fedora 29 Beta now, and I think there's
some stuff we could usefully discuss at a meeting. However, Monday is a
public holiday in the U.S. and Canada, so I suspect quite a few folks
wouldn't be available. Given that, I'm proposing we run the meeting on
*Tuesday* instead. I'm also gonna propose a blocker meeting for the
same day.

Fedora 29 Branched 20180901.n.0 nightly compose nominated for testing

Announcing the creation of a new nightly release validation test event
for Fedora 29 Branched 20180901.n.0. Please help run some tests for this
nightly compose if you have time.

Fedora 29 blocker review for this week

Hi folks! So, sorry I did not schedule or cancel a blocker review
meeting for this week - I kinda overlooked it, and also thought there
were fewer blockers to discuss than there actually are.

Problem is, I can't really run a blocker meeting any other day this
week either, as I'll be at Open Source Summit all week. So, I'm gonna
suggest two options. If someone else wants to pick a day and schedule
and run a blocker review meeting - please go ahead and do that!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-08-20 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. I don't
think there's anything critical to talk about. I'd actually like to
look at F29 Change status, but we should probably organize some sort
of review on the mailing list before having a meeting; hard to get
through all of that in a one hour meeting.

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!

# F29 Blocker Review meeting
# Date: 2018-08-20
# Time: 16:00 UTC
# Location: #fedora-blocker-review on irc.freenode.net

Hi folks! We have 8 proposed Beta blockers and 1 proposed Beta freeze
exception to review, so let's have a review meeting tomorrow.

If you have time this 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.

Greetings testers!

We didn't meet for a while, so I guess it's time!

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 29 / Rawhide status
3. Test Day status
4. Open floor

F29 branching: heads up on 29 status, Rawhide status, and switching from Rawhide to 29

Hey folks! So, the branch event for Fedora 29 recently happened. That
means we now have a Fedora 29 branch and Rawhide is now what will
eventually become F30.

If you were on Rawhide but you want to follow F29 development, and not
stay on Rawhide, the instructions for switching can be found here:

"Q: How do I get out of Rawhide again?

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-08-13 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting on Monday. We'll
definitely run a meeting the following week, but a lot of folks will
be traveling after Flock, so I don't think we'd have sufficient
turnout for Monday.

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!

Proposal to CANCEL: 2018-08-06 Fedora QA Meeting

Hi folks! I'm proposing we cancel the QA meeting tomorrow (today?),
as no-one seemed to have anything urgent for the agenda in response to
my other mail. So, I get to sleep in!

Greetings testers!

We haven't met for a few weeks, but I don't have anything very specific
for the agenda, and Monday's a public holiday here, so I'm not sure I
want to get up early to run a 'why not' meeting :)

So, please reply to this mail if you would definitely like us to meet
up on Monday, especially if you have anything specific you'd like us to
discuss.

cmake segfault on 32-bit arches on Rawhide

I just tried a rebuild of a package in Rawhide, it worked on most
arches, but failed on armv7hl and i686 (our only 32-bit arches).

Unannounced soname bump (Rawhide): net-snmp (libnetsnmp.so.30 -> libnetsnmp.so.35)

net-snmp was updated from 5.7.3-41 to 5.8-1 in Rawhide on 2018-07-20.
This update bumped the soname of libnetsnmp (in the net-snmp-libs
subpackage) from libnetsnmp.so.30 to libnetsnmp.so.35.
This soname bump was not announced, as it is supposed to be.

This library has many dependencies, and from a quick survey, few or
none of them appears to have been rebuilt.

Release criteria proposal: installing / removing software

Hi, folks!

It's been noted a few times before that we have a release criterion
that requires *updating* packages (or, these days, 'software', to cover
things like modules) to work...but we don't have criteria covering
other basic software management tasks, notably installing and removing.
There is a possible justification for this: so long as update works,
bugs in installation and removal can be fixed with updates.

Greetings testers!

We didn't quite get through the agenda last week, and there's another
topic I'd like to include, so let's have a meeting tomorrow. Stephen,
I'm CCing you as we could use your input on the modularity topic - if
you have time to attend that'd be great.

If anyone has any other items for the agenda, please reply to this

Release criteria proposal: drop kickstart package criterion

Hi, folks!

We currently have a Final release criterion that reads as follows:

"A spin-kickstarts package which contains the exact kickstart files
used to build the release must be present in the release repository.
The included kickstarts must define the correct set of release
repositories.

Why?

This is considered part of Fedora's duty to be 'self-hosting': the
kickstarts used to produce the release images are a vital piece of
information required to duplicate that release, so they must be
preserved along with the release."

Lately this requirement has been fairly annoying in practice.
