Fedora 31 Mass Branching Starting Today

Hello All,

Fedora 31 will be branched from rawhide today as per the Fedora 31
schedule[1]. The process takes about a day and everything should be ready
by tomorrow. You can still be able to build packages normally until then,
but after the mass branching rawhide and F31 will be separated.

We will send another email once the branching is done.

Thanks,
Fedora Release Engineering.

Fedora Module Mass Rebuild

Hi all,

Due to an issue with mbs authentication and then travel for FLOCK, we
couldn't run mass rebuilds of modules last week (mass rebuilds of modules
is run after mass rebuild of rpms are done). We are planning to try it
today. Please look out for module builds that we will be submitting as part
of mass rebuild and sorry for the delay.

Regards,
Mohan Boddu.

Modules in rawhide (that shouldn't be there)

Hi all,

There is a Mass Branching scheduled for next Tuesday, that is on Aug 13th
2019. There were some modules that are stuck in rawhide that shouldn't be
there, please create a ticket in <a href="https://pagure.io/releng" title="https://pagure.io/releng">https://pagure.io/releng</a> with the list of
module builds that shouldn't be there and we will remove them from rawhide
and will not be branched.

Thanks,
Mohan Boddu.

Hi All,

Fedora 30 has now been branched, please be sure to do a git pull
--rebase to pick up the new branch, as an additional reminder

Giving same acls to new modular repos as that of their respective rpms repos

Hello,

We got a suggestion about giving same acls of rpm when creating new module
dist-git which matches the rpm.

The plan is to give "main admin" permission to the requester of the new
module repo and then giving the same permissions as that of the maintainers
from its matching rpm repo.

I want to get some thoughts on it before adding this feature.

Thanks,
Mohan Boddu.

Bodhi update pushes are now automated

Hello all,

For a long time now updates are pushed manually everyday. It was
troublesome and someone has to own it for a week and look after it.

Now, the pushes are automated and are pushed everyday at 00:00 UTC. If
anything fails there will be an oncall person (same person who used to do
the pushes) who will take care of the failure.

During release freezes these automated pushes are disabled and are manually
pushed by RelEng/Infra.
