I'm involved with Red Hat High all this week, so I'm "stuck" with
taking a tour of the local TV station this afternoon :) and won't be
able to make it to the meeting. Please let me know if there are any
tasks you all want to assign to me for the next meeting.
After seeing today's spam to admin(a)fedoraproject.org, I'm wondering
if Yet Another Project for the TODO list is setting up spam filtering
of some sort...
In addition to the 2 PowerEdge 2950s being donated (working with Mike
McGrath), Dell would like to
donate 2 PowerEdge 1950 servers around September. Same deal, where
would the hardware best be put to use? These would likely have only
4GB and 2 146GB disks, and are 1U rack-mount servers.
Please cc: me on reponses as I'm not on f-i-l.

For those that don't know one of the Version control systems we're
evaluating is Subversion:
I've got SVN setup and running with Fedora Extras. I've got 2 copies.
One is a from the head for FE-5 and the other is an actual cvs2svn
conversion of Extras. They are available to anyone with a Fedora
Right now the head svn (https://svn.fedoraproject.org/svn/extras/) is
setup in the following fashion:
Take a look. I think this layout will work well for us. For testing
I've got this wide open (any valid Fedora Account) but I'm open to
closing parts of it down, completely opening some stuff (no auth at
all). We can get as crazy as we want as far as ACL's go. Let me know
what you guys all think because if we find some reason this won't work
for our needs it's better to find out now so we can focus our efforts on
I've created a basic ticketing workflow system for OTRS.
It's a quick tutorial on how to lock, email, comment and resolve a
ticket. The trick is to make sure we all use the system but not have it
be a huge bottle neck with so much overhead that its a headache. As
always any comments are welcome. We've had the system for a while now
but still with few tickets. What do you guys think of it?
Sorry i missed the meeting Thursday a Xerox guy turned up late then i
couldn't get him to leave :(
Can everyone look over http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/Backup and
provide some feedback here so that we can get some traction moving forward.
Some issues not covered in the wiki are how each would be implemented. i know
rdiff-backup and i assume backuppc would need to be ran by a user who has
sufficient privileges on each machine to read whats needed to be backed up.
what does this mean?
Well in the case of rdiff-backup it could be run centrally as a cron job but
the user that gets connected to at the other end needs to be able to read
everything or it could be decentralised and run as a cron job for root on
each box being backed up. it could then send the data to the backup server
as a user with no privileges.
bacula avoids this by running a daemon on each host. If there is still
people wanting to use bacula I will finish and submit the bacula package I
started on for extras so we can get a review of it rolling. If there is
demand for backuppc then I can start packaging it or someone else can if
But please provide some feedback or I will make a decision myself.
