Nice work on SOSreport. 
Would be interesting to support SOSreport inside a container on atomic host.

Subject: Cockpit 0.83 and 0.84

This is a summary of the Cockpit weekly releases. Over the last weeks
there was was 0.83 and 0.84

Building Cockpit on Debian

At systemd.conf Dominik worked with Michael Biebl one of the Debian
systemd maintainers on packaging Cockpit for Debian. We're still looking
for a maintainer long term.

Cross Distro Integration Tests

In Cockpit we run hundreds of tests on real operating systems for each
pull request. Without running these tests on an OS it's impossible to
know that the features of Cockpit actually works.

So far we've been running these tests on Fedora, Atomic, and RHEL. But
we'd really like to run them on Debian as well. That'll make Cockpit
much more well rounded.

Marius worked on the first steps toward this, doing the Cockpit build
inside of our test VM images:

Hopefully we'll see more progress on this.

SELinux certificate file type

The cockpit.service helpfully sets the appropriate user and group on the
certificates that cockpit-ws will use for TLS. Now it also sets the
SELinux file context type properly, so this is one less things to break
for an admin.

Cockpit manual page

There is now a 'man cockpit' overview manual page that links to the
guide and elsewhere.


Marius has done work on an SOS reporting view. Needs some further
backend work, but should be ready soon:

Peter has mostly completed the work to add machines with alternate
users, and non-standard SSH ports. Among other things, this is useful
for cloud instances. I'm looking forward to seeing this in Cockpit 0.85.

Pull request:

There's lots of other work in progress. You can see it here in the
Design and Implementation columns:

Get it

You can get Cockpit 0.84 in Fedora 23 or Fedora Rawhide:

Or via COPR for CentOS, RHEL, and earlier versions of Fedora:
