we have decided that it is a time to go through Copr backend data and
clean it up a little. Due to several bugs forgetting to remove backend
data after removing their records from the database, _temporarily_
backing up some folder here and there, etc, we ended up with a lot of
unknown data, that should have been already deleted.
So, we wrote a script  to find data that should be deleted, and we
... haven't deleted it yet. Instead, we put it aside in a case there
were any false-positives by the script. If you want to be extra safe,
I am attaching a list of all of those files, you may check it.
If you find out, that we accidentally want to remove any of your data
that is still being used, please contact us immediately! Otherwise, we
are going to delete it once we are running out of disk space (which
may not take a lot of time)
Thank you for understanding,
CentOS 8 repositories are now available, so @msuchy released new
`mock-core-configs` (see updates-testing), and so we were allowed to enable
epel-8 chroots in Copr! Feel free to build against them.
Note that it doesn't make sense to support `rhelbeta-8-*` chroots anymore,
so we plan to disable them after in 14 days. Please stop using them.
Also note that so far 'dnf copr enable <user>/<project>' command executed
on RHEL 8 box actually enabled the `rhelbeta-8-$basearch` repository. We
need to fix this so it enables `epel-8-$basearch` repo instead; this
change will happen at the same time when we'll disable the rhelbeta-8
chroots in Copr.
The build results in rhelbeta chroots will be handled using our standard
retention policy process, i.e. - unless specified otherwise - the builds
will be removed after 6 months.

FTR, we changed this in Copr as well - otherwise _all_ the builds in
fedora-31-i386+ would already fail. So please note that the fedora 31+
`i386` build chroot are _different_ from other architectures (in
copr/mock), and really re-consider whether you want to build against them.
The hardlink task finished. For the record, this is what I run:
for i in *; do pushd "$i" && for ii in *; do hardlink -vv "$ii"; done; popd >/dev/null; done
It run for more than two days. :)
As I watched the build most saved space come from:
1) chroot_scan/ - same libsolv and dnf logs for the same build in the same day
2) srpm_build/ - it has the same tar ball for resubmits

Today, we have released a new version of Copr. Here is a list of changes in
- This release added discussion panels in Copr projects. You can now
discuss individual projects on their project pages or browse all
discussions here: https://discussion.fedoraproject.org/c/projects-in-copr
- Build detail now show how long ago a build started and finished. (issue
- You can set how many builds are shown per page in copr/builds and task
queue tabs. (issue 709)
- When a project is deleted, it is removed from pinned projects
automatically. (issue 895)
- Task queue can now be sorted by project name. (issue 901).
- Monitor page no longer shows builds from PRs. (issue 807)
- Task queue no longer shows 300+ tasks when there are exactly 300. (issue
- Public database dumps should now work properly after importing. (issue
- Projects that are not listed on the homepage are no longer shown in the
- Generating a list of pending jobs and iterating over build queue was
optimized. (issue 902)
- Deleting multiple builds in the same project is now done as a part of a
single action on the backend. (issue 688)
- Previously, the front page was slow. This was caused by "recent builds"
box. The query for showing recently finished builds has been optimized. The
recent build tab now shows builds from the last 2 days by everyone and
user's builds from the last 30 days. (issue 937)
There will be an outage tomorrow, starting at:
$ date -d '2019-09-04 8:00 UTC'
which will last approximately 1.5 hours.
Reason for outage
Upgrade of copr packages on Copr servers, to get in bug-fixes - mostly
copr-frontend - https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org
copr-backend - https://copr-be.cloud.fedoraproject.org/
Though yum/dnf repositories (backend part, consumed by 'dnf copr enable ...')
should stay available during this outage.
Please join #fedora-admin in irc.freenode.net or add comments to the ticket for
this outage above.
Sorry for inconvenience,
