18:03:43 <danofsatx-work> hello ujjwal, nice to have you aboard
18:04:58 <ujjwal> 2 years experience in web development. looking forward to
18:05:29 <smooge> cool
18:05:31 <nirik> ujjwal: great. You are more interested in development type stuff?

18:06:55 <nirik> cool.
18:07:08 <nirik> well welcome aboard, and do feel free to ask questions or add
18:07:10 <threebean> and we do most everything in python. if there's anything I
can do to help you get started, questions or anything, lemme know.
18:07:39 <Morpheus77> Hi my name is Dan. I sent an introduction back in early
November. I'm looking to join the apprentice group and contribute to the
18:07:40 <nirik> yeah, we do have a few php applications deployed but they
aren't things we develop much... mediawiki, sticky-notes.
18:07:49 <ujjwal> i am learning python too. developed website using django
18:07:54 <threebean> cool, cool.
18:08:11 <nirik> Morpheus77: welcome. ;) I can get you added to the apprentice group
after the meeting... see me in #fedora-admin. :)
18:08:21 <Morpheus77> Thank you
18:08:51 <ujjwal> any task in which I can help
18:09:10 <nirik> ujjwal: we have a list of easyfix ones at:
18:09:25 <nirik> https://fedoraproject.org/easyfix/
18:09:40 * nirik sees our css went into la la land there.
18:10:11 <ujjwal> yes I checked
18:10:39 <ujjwal> it needs to be fixed?
18:10:50 <nirik> it's also often good to just hang out in irc and see commits
and discussions and chime in offering to help
18:11:02 <nirik> ujjwal: I know likely what the issue is... will ask our websites
folks to fix it.
18:11:43 <nirik> ok, any other new folks or apprentices with questions?
18:12:19 <nirik> #topic Applications status / discussion
18:12:33 <nirik> any applications news/status this week?
18:12:42 <nirik> I see pingou pushed out a new anytia version
18:14:03 <threebean> nothing much new here. staging work on proxy configs today and
yesterday. some work on that update-proxy-dns playbook in ansible.
18:14:07 <nirik> I expect things are kinda quiet before holidays for new versions,
which is great. ;)
18:14:48 <lmacken> bodhi is now composing atomic ostrees
18:14:55 <nirik> hurray!
18:15:01 <threebean> lmacken: awesome :)
18:15:02 <nirik> #info new anytia version in production
18:15:13 <nirik> #info bodhi1 is now pushing out atomic tree updates with updates
18:16:12 <threebean> oh, a new fedora-tagger release went out too with some cosmetic
fixes and a bugfix to its fedmsg publication.
18:16:21 <nirik> lmacken: can you look at a fix for that thing bochchea mentioned
this morning? is that likely to bother people for updates? I guess it might
18:16:49 <lmacken> nirik: that is a rabbit hole I won't get a chance to go down
this year :P
18:16:54 <nirik> #info new fedora-tagger with a few fixes as well.
18:17:06 <nirik> lmacken: ok. Should we file a ticket or something to point people
18:17:12 <lmacken> nirik: yeah that would be helpful
18:17:47 <nirik> oh... reminds me, there was a epel thing about bodhi you might want
to look at/comment on too...
18:18:06 <nirik> https://fedorahosted.org/epel/ticket/26
18:18:39 <nirik> anyhow, that can be out of meeting time.
18:18:42 <threebean> almost forgot - there's a space here for planning new app
ideas for 2015
18:18:45 <nirik> anything else application wise?
18:18:53 <nirik> oh yeah, need to look at that. ;)
18:19:08 <lmacken> nirik: probably not fixiable in bodhi1
18:19:32 <nirik> lmacken: figured... also they are asking in the wrong place and
being kinda demanding about it.
18:20:30 <nirik> #info new app ideas for 2015:
18:20:45 <nirik> #topic Sysadmin status / Discussion
18:20:47 <dgilmore> nirik: how fun of them
18:21:03 <nirik> We got db01 and db-fas01 and some more virthosts reinstalled to
rhel7 this week. ;)
18:21:20 <nirik> we now have fewer rhel6 instances than rhel7. ;)
18:21:28 <nirik> and just 55 hosts left in puppet
18:21:56 <dgilmore> :)
18:22:13 <nirik> getting there. ;) slowly by surely
18:22:58 <nirik> #topic nagios/alerts recap
18:23:06 <threebean> outage heroes.. last couple of days there.
18:23:09 <nirik> not sure I even want to look this week. ;) with the outages it was
18:23:23 <nirik> but I am hoping it will be quiet over the holidays.
18:23:38 <nirik> #topic Upcoming Tasks/Items
18:23:38 <nirik> https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar/list/infrastructure/
18:23:47 <nirik> Speaking of upcoming items: Holidays
18:24:01 <nirik> Many/most Folks will be vacationing the next two weeks.
18:24:23 <nirik> so, please be carefull not to do anything that would cause outages
or alerts and we will all thank you
18:24:37 <nirik> #info holiday quiet period. Please don't cause outages or
18:24:42 <dgilmore> my phone is already unhappy with me
18:24:59 <nirik> If you need something and no one is around, please file a ticket. I
will be checking those from time to time.
18:25:13 <threebean> https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar/vacation/
18:25:15 <nirik> dgilmore: yeah, I set mine to use google voice by default and pages
have been coming in clumps.
18:26:12 <dgilmore> since im going on holidays i am going to remove me from getting
pagged while away
18:26:23 <nirik> fair enough
18:27:11 <nirik> anything else upcoming anyone would like to note or schedule?
18:27:13 <adimania> umm.. if there is a list of pending servers for ansible, may be
I could do some during the holidays.
18:27:35 <adimania> any easy fixes or anything else?
18:27:40 <nirik> adimania: well, the majory left are things that need outages.
18:27:52 <nirik> like virthosts at colo sites and proxies
18:28:32 <nirik> I can look thru for any lacking playbooks tho.
18:28:39 <adimania> okay.
18:28:39 <nirik> there might be a small few. ;)
18:28:43 <smooge> I had an idea last night as I was trying to figure out proxy
18:29:03 <smooge> when we rebuild them with ansible are we rebuilding from scratch
and might want to change names?
18:29:36 <smooge> so instead of proxy01 it could be proxy01-phx2 (if we had two at
18:29:36 <nirik> smooge: we will be rebuilding from scratch yeah... and going to
18:29:50 <nirik> yeah, seems reasonable.
18:29:58 <nirik> would make it easier to tell which one was where
18:30:05 <smooge> I don't know what it might break so I figure we would cname
them in dns to the other names
18:30:29 <nirik> it shouldn't break anything I don't think... and if it does
we can fix it. ;)
18:30:33 <smooge> but I was on the completely wrong exterior box trying to find
proxy7 last week
18:30:46 <smooge> and almost took down proxy04 :)
18:30:53 <nirik> also, nuking the 2 ip's per proxy will help
18:31:27 <nirik> make it less confusing when removing something
18:32:07 <puiterwijk> smooge: how about proxy-phx01, just like we do with
nameservers? (ns-sb01, ..)
18:34:05 <puiterwijk> nirik: changing the hostname will however likely change VPN
ips of the proxies, unless we change their IP assignations in the openvpn server side
18:34:18 <smooge> puiterwijk, sure. I am not good with names. They would all be
named after european names for disney characters if I had my choice
18:34:35 <nirik> puiterwijk: yep. and 2fa keys, but we are making them new, so we
should make those things new
18:34:58 <puiterwijk> nirik: okay. just wanted to point it out :)
18:35:16 <nirik> renaming is kinda a pain, but next to reinstalling and redeplpying
it's a good time
18:35:53 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
18:35:58 <nirik> anyone have anything for open floor?
18:36:39 <smooge> I think the sky should be green and purple
18:36:56 <smooge> nirik, did you talk about next 2 weeks?
18:37:12 <nirik> yeah.
18:37:22 <nirik> don't cause outages or alerts. :)
18:37:29 <smooge> okie dokie I missed that sorry.
18:37:31 <nirik> did you want something more specific?
18:37:33 <nirik> :)
18:37:54 <nirik> I might re-install builders over the holidays but that will cause
no outages or alerts...
18:37:56 <adimania> should not that be always ;)
18:38:12 <smooge> just going to be Krampus versus Santa if we have problems during
18:38:25 <smooge> And I am a very very very scary Krampus
18:38:25 <puiterwijk> nirik: how about we just turn off nagios for the upcoming two
18:38:57 <nirik> puiterwijk: well, that would make out holiday quiet, but we might
come back to find we have been replaced. ;)
18:39:23 <smooge> ha.. where are they going to find 3 suckers to replace us?
18:39:45 <nirik> indeed
18:39:50 <puiterwijk> smooge: 3? for both you and nirik they're going to need at
least two other people to handle the same load :-)
18:40:44 <smooge> and 3 for you
18:40:47 <puiterwijk> especially if that puiterwijk guy retains commit access, he
keeps breaking everything
18:41:41 <nirik> heh. ;)
18:41:54 <nirik> ok, well, everyone have a great holidays...
18:42:00 <Morpheus77> you too
18:42:25 <nirik> oh, and next meeting is 2015-01-08. ;)
18:42:38 <nirik> #info next meeting is 2015-01-08
