CentOS 7.4.1708 CR Available in CBS

Hi Folks,

The CR (<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR" title="https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR">https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR</a>)
repository was released earlier today. We have regenerated all the
CentOS 7 buildroots in CBS so you can build against the content that
will make it into the next point-release of CentOS Linux.

Machines in ci.centos.org are available with CR as well so you may
continue your testing.

Point-Release Freeze of SIG Content while CR is Active

Hi Folks,

At the CBS meeting yesterday we discussed a proposal to freeze the Sign
and Push-to-mirror processes during the period between when CR is active
and a point release.

<a href="https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2018-April/016610.html" title="https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2018-April/016610.html">https://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-devel/2018-April/016610.html</a>

You may recall that we did something similar for 7.1708

We need to Freeze because we make CR content available in CBS for
builds, and in CI for testing purposes. But, releasing content built
against CR to mirror.centos.org would have had some unintended
consequences (e.g.

Migrating jenkins.fedorainfracloud.org to jenkins-fedora-infra.apps.ci.centos.org

Good Morning Everyone,

The Fedora Infrastructure has been running a jenkins instance in its
cloud for their own needs.

SIG Chairs: Please file requests for syncing altarch content to mirror.c.o

Hi Folks,

Now that we're syncing content to mirror.centos.org/altarch (thanks KB!)
we need to be sure we have all the content you expect there.

If you have altarch-enabled koji tags and would like your content signed
and pushed to the /altarch location, please file a bug in the normal
fashion[0].

URLs in centos-release-<sig> packages: /altarch vs. /centos/

Hi Folks,

Now that we have SIG Content in the /altarch directories for CentOS 7 on the
mirrors, we need to come with some requirements and recommendations for dealing
with the different locations.

tl;dr The current thinking is to add the following snippet in the %post of
centos-release and release to all of the arches.

Fwd: [FOSDEM] FOSDEM 2018 - Distributions Devroom Call for Participation

Hi Folks,

If you have topics for the Distro Devroom, now's the time!

Plan for releasing CentOS CR into CBS and CI

Hi Folks,

We've had a few discussions around how to handle releasing CR
(<a href="https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR" title="https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR">https://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalResources/Repositories/CR</a>) over the
past few days.

When we last checked in, there was still a bit of work going on building
and testing pre-release CR (the QA team has been hard at work), and the
altarch builds were still in progress.

FOSDEM 2017 - Distributions Devroom

FOSDEM 2017 - Distributions Devroom Call for Participation

The Distributions devroom will take place 4 February, 2017 at FOSDEM, in
room K.4.601 at Université Libre de Bruxelles, in Brussels, Belgium.

Distributions are more than just hosted collections of software from various
upstreams. Each distribution is responsible for problem-solving in building,
testing, and releasing software as well as managing the lifecycle of each
application in the collection.

centos-packager 0.5.4 Released

Hi Packagers!

We have pushed an update to centos-packager containing 3 bugfixes and
added COPR builds for Fedora 25.

See <a href="https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/CentosPackager" title="https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/CentosPackager">https://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/CentosPackager</a> for instructions about
how to install it on your workstation.

Highlights:

- - Updated the path to the serverca bundle in the koji config
(<a href="https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=12110" title="https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=12110">https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=12110</a>)

- - Use more restrictive permissions when downloading to ~/.centos.cert
for multi-user workstations.

- - Update some references to accounts.centos.org in the help text of the
centos-cert tool

P

python-centos-0.1.1-1 Released, centos-packager built for f24 certificate expiration

Hi Folks,

I've released an update to python-centos that fixes an issue when
running `centos-cert -v`. The tool will now check the expiration date of
your accounts.centos.org user certificate and report it invalid if it's
expired. You should find python-centos-0.1.1-1 in CentOS-Extras shortly.

I also used this opportunity to publish builds for the centos-packager
suite in COPR for Fedora 24, you can find those here:
<a href="https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/bstinson/centos-packager/" title="https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/bstinson/centos-packager/">https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/bstinson/centos-packager/</a>

If you have any feedback or questions, let us know here.

Cheers!

NO CBS/Infra Meeting 08-Feb-2016

Hi Folks,

I know some of us (myself included) are traveling or recovering from the Dojo ->
FOSDEM -> cfgmgmt -> Devconf marathon, so let's cancel this week's
meeting. I'll send out a list of open action items here to the list
sometime between airplanes tomorrow.

Cheers!

Naming scheme and lorax parameters for userland + non-distro kernel builds

Hi All,

I'm working on putting some things together for a couple of the Intel
boards (Edison, Jaguarboard, etc.) and was wondering if there's a
standard way we should be naming things on the install media.

For the rpi2, we use 'CentOS Altarch 7 (1511) Userland for armhfp'

A lot of the Intel boards out there require a newer or otherwise
non-distro kernel so I was considering titling the install media like
this:

CentOS Altarch 7 (1511) Userland for x86_64

Not sure if the 'Altarch' bit applies because it's the standard x86_64
userland (no rebuilding needed).

Community Authentication Working Group Meeting: 29-Sep-2015 1300UTC

Hi Folks,

As some of you know, CentOS is working on deploying FAS2 for central
authentication in the Community Build System. The Fedora Infrastructure
team is working on deploying FAS3 for their needs.

Going forward, we will need a place for us and other projects to work on
features of our authentication systems. One software option is to
explore some of the things FreeIPA brings to the table.

Central Auth: Group naming and Process Proposal

Hi All,

We're working on testing instances of FAS for storing our user/group
membership information used by the CBS. I'd like to talk about group
naming and the permissions model to get some input. The goal is to get
these discussions going so we can set up our test environment to mirror
what we'll roll out in production. Consider this a proposal, and please
send comments my way (on-list please!).

Groups will use the convention 'sig-<shortname>', for example: people in
the Cloud SIG will be members of the FAS group 'sig-cloud'.

Short scheduled Jenkins restart between 15:00 and 16:00 UTC

Hi Folks,

We are working on adding a few plugins to Jenkins and we need to
schedule a very short reboot (we are expecting it to take less than
30 seconds) sometime between 15:00 and 16:00 UTC.

The reboot will happen in that window as soon as the currently running
jobs finish.

If you have any questions, please send email to <a href="mailto: ... at centos dot org"> ... at centos dot org</a>

SIGS with outstanding blockers on the CBS

Hi All,

I've been lurking at a few SIG meetings this week to get an idea of
which SIGs are blocked on things in the CBS. So far here is a high-level
list of outstanding items:

- Central Authentication for Koji/Gitblit/Lookaside (Priority: HIGH)

- Lookaside upload tools (Priority: HIGH)

- New release of CBS build tools - centpkg, /usr/bin/cbs (Priority: HIGH)

- EPEL package import features in the build tools (Priority: Medium)

- Notifications/Messaging from Koji (Priority: Medium)

If your SIG is blocked on something in the CBS or if you have any
feature requests, please let me know.
