As you may know, over the last few weeks I have been working on a small project
called (for the moment) cnucnu web.
You can already see it in place at: http://18.104.22.168/cnucnu/
The idea is to provide a web-interface to the release monitoring script that is
being run for the moment via the wiki: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upstream_release_monitoring
So this web-application replaces the wiki page, allows mapping of projects into
linux distributions and anyone with an OpenID account can contribute to it.
On the back, there is a cron job that runs, check for new version of the project
with the information provided and send a message on fedmsg for every new version
The idea is to host the project on the Fedora infrastructure but, I would prefer
not have it under the fedoraproject.org name as I see it as a broader project than
just for Fedora: Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, Slack, Suse, we all can benefit from this.
I also would like to have it broadcast messages on the debian version of fedmsg
(I'm already in contact with Olsad for this).
So, what I would like to ask is:
* what do you think of the project? Worth pursuing or not?
* Where should it live?
* Domain name suggestions? (release-monitoring.org, cnucnu.org, cnucnuweb.org,
<insert here you own idea>?)
So if we agree to get it up and running, I foresee few steps:
* Check with legal if there are any limitations (ie: can we put non-FOSS projects
* Get the domain name
* Update the UI: we already have a design but I think it could be made nicer
(especially the front page) -- Any volunteers?
* Deploy it and see w/ Debian how to have it send messages onto their bus
* Set the DNS to point to the website
I will start the first step now already.
You are getting this email because you are in the 'fi-apprentice' group
in the fedora account system. When you reply, please include your
fedora account system login.
Additionally, this month, I am CC'ing the infrastructure list. If you
would like to send your feedback there as well everyone can see and
comment on it.
At the first of every month(or so), I am going to be sending out an
email like this one. I would like feedback on how things are going for
I'd like to ask for everyone to send me a quick reply with the
following data or anything related you can think of that might help us
make the apprentice program more useful.
0. Whats your fedora account system login?
1. Have you logged in and used your fi-apprentice membership to look at
our machines/setup in the last month? Do you plan to?
2. Has it helped you decide any area you wish to focus on or contribute
3. Have you looked at or been able to work on any of the fi-apprentice
4. Do you still wish to be a member of the group? If not (for whatever
reason) could you provide any hints to help others down the road?
5. Is there any help or communication or ideas you have that would help
you do any of the above?
6. What do you find to be the hardest part of getting involved?
Finding things to work on? Getting attention from others to help you?
Finding tickets in your interest area?
7. Have you been able to make any weekly irc meetings? Do you find them
helpful or interesting?
8. What was the very first computer you ever used?
Any other general feedback is also quite welcome, including
improvements to this email, the wiki page, etc.
Any folks I do not hear from in the next week will be removed from the
group. (Note that it's easy to be readded when you have time or
whatever and it's nothing at all personal, we just want to keep the
group up to date with active folks).
Thanks, and looking forward to your feedback!
I meant to send this out sooner, but with the Fedora 20 release things
have been crazy. :) Now that we are nearing the end of 2013, I think it
might be a nice time to think ahead to next year.
What would you love to see happen? What would you like to work on
(even if it's not practical resource wise or logistically)
Here's a list of some of mine:
* 0 downtime upgrades. By this I mean we can update and reboot all our
servers (probibly in some specific order with specific actions
between) and not have to schedule any downtime or notify users
anything is going on. This means at least that we have db
replication/failover working and 2 of everything.
* Migration to ansible fully done, with all hosts moved over and
rebuilt and working.
* Migration to RHEL7. :)
* Ticket queue down to a very small set. When I first started it was
gigantic, then I closed/fixed/redirected a lot of the ticket and we
started going down in number, but over the last year or so we have
hovered between 140-150.
* Migration to hyperkitty/mailman3 complete with all lists moved.
* All hosts selinux enforcing. :)
* No "app" servers left. All applications split out to their own (at
least pair) of instances.
* Logging from every app/server goes to a known place and we process
them all looking for problems.
I'll probibly think of some more, will send them to this thread when I
do. So how about you? Any big dreams for 2014? Hopefully we can make at
least some of them real.
We had recently first legal issue on Copr and I had to remove one
project. And because of Christmas it took me 2 days to notice it.
Currently there are just two admins of Copr. It would be nice if there
can be more admins. Admin can then access:
And delete projects where legal flag has been raised.
If somebody from infra want to become admin, please reply to this email.
Or if you have access to Copr machine (cloud-admin should have) you can run:
first log in copr.fedoraproject.org webUI, then
./manage.py alter_user --admin your_fas_login
