I'd like to request approval (on behalf of Susmit) to do the following
(As outlined in the FreeMedia Infrastructure SOP):
cp FreeMedia-form.html.orig FreeMedia-form.html
git commit -a -m 'opening freemedia form for month `date +%B`'
And a few days later,
cp FreeMedia-close.html Freemedia-form.html
git commit -a -m 'closing freemedia form for month `date +%B`'
This is a routine activity normally done on the beginning of the month
for a few days to allow individuals to submit requests to the freemedia
I'm sending this mail because I wan't to be a part of the Fedora
Infrastructure (Web Developer). I've read this Getting
but didn't understand the
FIG <http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/FIGs> and Get
My english is not good enough, so please if you have the time,
explain it (like how to get sponsored).
About these "skills":
Being nice to other hard-working hackers and helping them do what they enjoy
=> I'm nice to people :)
Knowing how to write scripts for system administration => This is
problematic for me, I have never written scripts like this...
Knowing how to write web applications using Python and SQL or equivalent
technologies (*** we can especially use skills in this area ***) => I do
know Python very well, although I don't use it for web applications, this is
a thing I'd LOVE to learn. I use Python for a variety of scripts including
CGI: check out my reference site at http://sandorlev.selfip.org (it can be
down, I run it on my PC)
Yeah this isn't a real reference site, I use it for nmapping and
tracerouting when I'm at school :)
Knowing how the Fedora project works behind the scenes => I'm writing
because I want to know!
Have previous systems admin experience => I use Fedora at home, but the only
user of the PC is me, so...
Have access to your own testing machines for testing and proof of concepts
(Huge plus! Our resources are limited, especially for testing) => I use
Fedora at home :)
Work in other areas of Fedora like Packaging or Documentation => I would
work as a translator, but I don't have that much time...
So in a nutshell:
I'm a 15-year-old Hungarian boy who wants to help in Fedora development,
wants to get experience in web-apps, loves Python and programming and Linux!
Time: 3 PM EDT (19:00 UTC)
Thanks for responses from Jared, Jeff, and Paul. It looks like this
coming Tuesday at 3 PM EDT is the best time to meet.
I'm hoping we can meet briefly for the next three weeks at this time to
have some real time conversations about getting ready for the event.
So far we've had some good conversations on the list about what
version of Asterisk we'll be using so hopefully we can get that sorted
Any other things like this that we can discuss and complete in advance
will go a long way towards giving us the best shot of coming out of the
FAD with the best working configuration possible!
To get prepared I've been reading the O'Reilly Asterisk book which then
led me to wonder what our own setup looks like. This resulted in me
joining the Fedora sysadmin group. So I was glad to have more time to
get familiar with Fedora's infrastructure environment and get setup
things like this out of the way now instead of wasting half of the first
day of the FAD trying to get set up.
If there are other things that we should all be thinking about, please
send them to the list or add them to the wiki page. I also think we
need to come up with a fun
Thanks and talk to you on Tuesday,
FYI, since we are change frozen... :)
This week features another test day focused on the installer. The topic
is all things RAID. The anaconda-devel team has asked for help testing
software RAID, BIOS RAID and hardware RAID. While this is specific to
installation, I certainly welcome testing using mdadm tools on already
installed systems or even general live image testing.
Included in the 14 bugs found during last weeks installer test day were
3 additions to the F12Beta blocker list . Thanks again to all who
participated. I hope we can give similar attention to RAID this week.
If you have support for BIOS or hardware RAID, please do stop by on irc.
Your help is needed!
The fun starts this this Thursday, October 8 2009 in #fedora-test-day on
irc.freenode.net. If you'd like to get started early, a live image is
already available along with a list of recommended test scenarios.
Stay tuned for more details at

Hey fedora-infrastructure-list, I would like to introduce myself to you all.
My name is Derrick, I go by the nick Actown in IRC and I am currently a
first year student at Oregon State University studying computer science.
I started working with computers from a very young age. I had my own RH9
server on my home connection when I was 13. I ran a few websites and a
IRCserver on that old box. I have had a home server running Linux ever
then and I have been using Linux on and off for my desktop needs. I know
tiny bits of C/C++ and python. I have done most of my code using PHP and
MySQL, but I am working at my C skills currently.
I am looking to help in any system administration area of the fedora
infrastructure. Helping fedora would provide me with a great learning
experience and a great way to help the world of Linux and open source.
I'm located in Corvallis, Oregon and the time zone here is UTC-0700 (PDT).
I am interested on joining the team because I haven't given anything back to
the community in the time I have been using Linux. Also, helping can provide
me with real world experience with system administration and teamwork. I
look forward to talking with you all in the future in the IRC channel or in
Derrick "Ac-town" Dymock
Could people who are using the publictest machines please make sure that the wiki pages for those machines are currently up to date?
For instance, I am trying to find the person currently testing sogod on publictest15 after an out of space alert came up, however, looking at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/Server/publictest15 I cannot tell who is running sogod.
If you have finished testing stuff, it'd also be appreciated if you can disable related services etc so they aren't running needlessly (the resources can then be used for other projects).
AFAIK the build hosts are RHEL5 (or maybe F10 by now?). At any rate
the rpm used in rawhide is quite different than the ones from the
hosts, how has this been solved in the build hosts? Has the hosting OS
upgraded its rpm to be compatible to all hosted chroots? Or is the rpm
within the chroot used?
I'm asking in a double context: First I'd like to understand if smart
can properly handle chroots of rawhide/F11 on F10/RHEL5 hosts. Anders
Björklund (in the Cc, please keep him there on replies) has put a
great deal of effort to have smart working on F10 and F11, and a smart
version for managing F11 and later chroots on F10 or earlier would be
And second I'd like to know how to setup a build environment for F11
for getting some ATrpms packages out.
