The infrastructure team will be having it's weekly meeting tomorrow,
2015-09-24 at 18:00 UTC in #fedora-meeting on the freenode network.
We have a gobby document
(see: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Gobby )
fedora-infrastructure-meeting-next is the document.
Please try and review and edit that document before the meeting and we
will use it to have our agenda of things to discuss. A copy as of today
is included in this email.
If you have something to discuss, add the topic to the discussion area
with your name. If you would like to teach other folks about some
application or setup in our infrastructure, please add that topic and
your name to the learn about section.

This shared document is for the next fedora infrastructure meeting.
We will use it over the week before the meeting to gather status and info and

we are now in the infrastructure freeze leading up to the Fedora 23
Beta release. This is a pre-release freeze.
We do this to ensure that our infrastructure is stable and ready to
release the Fedora 23 Beta when it's available.
You can see a list of hosts that do not freeze by checking out the
ansible repo and running the freezelist script:
git clone https://infrastructure.fedoraproject.org/infra/ansible.git
scripts/freezelist -i inventory
Any hosts listed as freezes is frozen until 2015-09-22. (or later if
Beta slips). Frozen hosts should have no changes made to them
without a sign-off on the change from at least 2 sysadmin-main or
rel-eng members, along with (in most cases) a patch of the exact
change to be made to this list.

Planned Outage: lockbox01 migration to batcave01 - 2015-09-25 16:00 UTC
There will be an outage starting at 2015-09-25 16:00 UTC, which will
last approximately 2 hours.
To convert UTC to your local time, take a look at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/UTCHowto or run:
date -d '2015-09-25 16:00 UTC'
Reason for outage:
We will be migrating our central management host from the old rhel6
based lockbox01 to the new rhel7 based batcave01. For various reasons
batcave01 will take over the IP address(es) for lockbox01, so any admin
users will need to update their ssh host keys. /home and other data
will be synced over to the new host.
Koji builders will be disabled for the outage. Submitted builds will
process after the outage. (builders use
infrastructure.fedoraproject.org for mock root inits). Web resources at
infrastructure.fedoraproject.org may be unavailable during the outage.
Ansible runs will not be possible during the outage. Services not
listed are not affected by this outage.
Please join #fedora-admin or #fedora-noc on irc.freenode.net or add
comments to the ticket for this outage above.
Dear Bugzilla User,
On September 20th we upgraded the production Red Hat Bugzilla servers.
We expect the hardware upgrade will provide a modest improvement to overall performance and will enable us to make further improvements in the future; with the enhanced operational flexibility in the maintenance of the hardware and software platform. In addition to upgrading the hardware, we have also changed the underlying database from MySQL to PostgreSQL, to further improve performance and handle the increasing workloads that Bugzilla imposes.
Both hardware and database upgrades are not intended to change the functionality offered by the Red Hat Bugzilla user-interface (except the new product widget and the component widget on such pages as the advanced search page) or the RPC APIs.
If you have any questions or concerns with the new system, please refer to the FAQ or file a bug. If you are not already subscribed to Bugzilla Announcements list, please do so at  to receive any further announcements.
The Red Hat Bugzilla Team
