Thanks !

Ceph Jewel 10.2.10 available for testing

We plan on releasing 10.2.10 soon if no issues are reported.

Need Ceph ppc64le builds to update to Jewel 10.2.9


I've successfully imported and did a scratch build of Ceph Jewel
10.2.9 [1] in order to update from 10.2.7.

Information on the release:
- Spec changes [2]
- Changelog (note: updating from 10.2.7, 10.2.8 is avoided) [3]

I was looking forward to make it available for testing soon but I've
noticed that build failures on ppc64le are currently blocking new

Can we get that looked into sometime soon ?

Thanks !

Ceph status update in the storage SIG

Hi centos-devel,

Fran├žois Cami posted in December, seeking help to maintain the Ceph
packages within the Storage SIG intiative [1].

With this, we've got reinforcements -- the new members of the storage
SIG for Ceph packaging are:
- David Moreau Simard
- Giulio Fidente
- Thomas Oulevey

We've already begun kicking the tires and tagged Ceph Jewel 10.2.3 for
release (which had been in testing since September).
Ceph Jewel 10.2.5 has been built and will likely be tagged to -testing
after some initial testing.

We're also in the process of updating Ceph Hammer from 0.94.6 to
0.94.9, although note

ceph-jewel: Can we get a release ?


<a href="" title=""></a> has
Ceph 10.2.3 since *at least* 2016-09-28 but it's still not hit public
mirrors, can we get a release ?
ipv6 support is broken in 10.2.2, we need 10.2.3 to land in public mirrors.

Backport of a qemu fix for /dev/kvm permissions ?


To make a long story short, in certain circumstances, the /dev/kvm
file can sometimes have permissions that do not allow it to be used
properly [1].

This claims to have been fixed in qemu-2.3.0-1.fc22.
I was wondering if we should expect that fix to land in the
qemu-kvm-ev-2.3.0* packages provided by the virt SIG repo ?

I know for a fact the patch is not there (yet) right now:

(on Fedora):

$ rpm -q --scripts qemu-system-x86
postinstall scriptlet (using /bin/sh):
# Default /dev/kvm permissions are 660, we install a udev rule changing that
# to 666.
