we are now in the infrastructure freeze leading up to the Fedora 27
release. This is a final release freeze.
We do this to ensure that our infrastructure is stable and ready to
release the Fedora 27 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:
ansible/scripts/freezelist -i inventory
Any hosts listed as freezes is frozen until 2017-10-31 (or later if
release 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.
I'd like to get a freeze break request to do two things:
1) Apply the patch from #2005 to production bodhi-backend01.
2) Manually run bodhi-dequeue-stable on backend01.
I guess I should technically ask for review on  as well, since we
shouldn't really apply unreviewed PRs on production…
We are working on a project: transtats <http://transtats.org/> and wanted
to discuss this here.
Transtats tries to harmonize and give clear picture of translations across
different places (upstream, translation platform and build system) about
strings. Also, it captures release schedule dates/milestones and generates
some summary, stats and alerts which could be meaningful to developers,
i18n quality engineers, translators and localization
I have tried including description and advantage to fedora here . In
flock 2017, we had some discussions around "string breakage detection" and
some sort of solution whereby tracking of translations across packages
could be done. Thanks to flock 2017 committee for giving me chance to
present / introduce  transtats. It keeps some list of languages (+their
sets), list of packages (+their relationships) and releases (schedule,
build sys info); interact with translation platforms (zanata / damned lies)
and build system (koji - *under development*) through jobs to generate
Transtats server is a django/postgres application  and has one client
. This is to request resources whereby we can setup server and make
things ready probably for f28. We have some running instances for demo
purposes . FAS auth is working (on localhost:8080) thanks Patrick. May
be plain VM with f27 can do, we are planning to try openshift v3 shortly.
As of now load balancing or caching are not required, but surely going to
I am really excited and hoping to have questions / comments / suggestions !
For optimization purposes, the website build scripts now need a file
to exist before they grab live data from fedmsg for displaying AMIs.
I had to apply this change on the sundries nodes to make sure that
they do continue to generate a usable website.
Can I get +1s for the following patch?
