16:04 -!- dgilmore changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Infrastructure meeting
16:05 -!- jfluhmann [n=jfluhman(a)x170y234.angelo.edu] has joined #fedora-meeting
16:05 < dgilmore> ping ricky, skvidal, f13, Wakko666, jima, iWolf, anyone else i
16:05 < skvidal> pong
16:05 * iWolf is here
16:05 < gkrpan> <- here

16:06 < dgilmore> meeting items
16:06 < dgilmore> .ticket 395
16:06 < zodbot> dgilmore: #395 (Audio Streaming of Fedora Board Conference Calls) -
Fedora Infrastructure - Trac -
16:07 < dgilmore> jcollie: how much work do you think is involved here?
16:07 < jcollie> hmm
16:07 < dgilmore> its not something thats critical to get done
16:07 < jcollie> once we get FAS2/Asterisk integrated, then we need to get a bot set
up to control things
16:07 < dgilmore> but something we need to keep in mind
16:08 * f13
16:08 * mdomsch is here
16:08 -!- rharrison [n=rharriso@nat/cisco/x-c2500f1acaecb55c] has left #fedora-meeting
16:08 < jcollie> maybe 10-16 hours of someone's time... dunno... i'm not
good at estimating that
16:08 < dgilmore> if anyone wants to help this would be a nice place to do some
16:09 < dgilmore> jcollie: we are thinking of a module for SupyBot allowing people
to book and control rooms right?
16:09 < jcollie> yes
16:09 < jcollie> i've got a prototype started
16:09 < dgilmore> so it would intrface with asterisks manager api
16:09 < dgilmore> :)
16:09 < jcollie> yes
16:10 < jcollie> it's called ursabot but it doesn't join any channels yet
16:10 -!- bpepple|lt [n=bpepple|(a)adsl-69-214-168-157.dsl.wotnoh.ameritech.net] has joined
16:10 < dgilmore> :)
16:10 < jcollie> the code is in my asterisk1 home dir if anyone wants to take a
16:10 < dgilmore> i might try poke at it
16:10 < dgilmore> so lets move on
16:11 < dgilmore> .ticket 398
16:11 < zodbot> dgilmore: #398 (elfutils `monotone' (mtn) error) - Fedora
Infrastructure - Trac -
16:11 < dgilmore> so what to do here
16:11 -!- stickster_mtg is now known as stickster
16:11 < jcollie> i say we block any new monotone repos until the anonymous access
issues get sorted out upstream
16:12 < jcollie> for now you can rsync the elfutils repo anonymously iirc
16:12 < f13> jcollie: do e really have other monotone users?
16:12 < jcollie> f13: not that i know of
16:12 < jcollie> so it may never become an issue
16:13 * jfluhmann is here
16:13 < f13> yeah
16:13 < f13> I don't expect them to be knocking down our door
16:13 < dgilmore> we probably should have insisted roland changed RCS
16:14 < dgilmore> but anyway not much eles here for now
16:14 < dgilmore> .ticket 446
16:14 < zodbot> dgilmore: #446 (Possibility to add external links on spins page) -
Fedora Infrastructure - Trac -
16:14 < dgilmore> no one owns this
16:15 < dgilmore> im somewhat against it
16:15 < dgilmore> but then again i also told mether that he should find local
hosting for localised spins
16:15 < mether> unfortunately that is easier said that done
16:16 < dgilmore> I can see the want to put localised spins links somewhere
16:16 < iWolf> the concern is that we can't be certain of the validity of the
spins if we post external links? i.e. it falls outside our circle of trust?
16:16 * jwb perks up
16:17 < dgilmore> but perhaps we could link to a wiki page that has all the
laocalised torrents on it
16:17 < jwb> if something changes with the localized spins please let me know
16:17 < dgilmore> iWolf: somewhat yes
16:17 < dgilmore> jwb: in what way?
16:17 < jwb> as in, if they are going to get hosted at spins.fp.o
16:17 < Wakko666> i seem to remember mmcgrath mentioning the need for board
involvement on this. i don't remember the details, though.
16:17 < jwb> i'm not producing anymore localized spins at the moment
16:18 < dgilmore> jwb: why not
16:18 < dgilmore> i thought we were hosting some
16:18 < mdomsch> +1 to wiki page listing them
16:18 < dgilmore> fedora-fr.org
has a french spin they are self hosting
16:18 < jwb> we have 1 hosted now. that was before the spins issue was brought up
to the board
16:19 < jwb> yes, i know
16:19 < mdomsch> +1 to spins.fp.o linking to the wiki page
16:19 < dgilmore> mdomsch: I think that should be ok
16:19 -!- abadger1999 [n=abadger1@conference/pycon/x-7bf2f16291e110e7] has joined
16:19 -!- jmn [n=jmn@nat/redhat/x-ca09133ba144853c] has quit "Leaving."
16:20 < dgilmore> mdomsch: then we have have a disclaimer that the spinds are
generated by local community people
16:20 < mdomsch> yep
16:20 < jwb> dgilmore, essentially we need agreement from Infrastructure, Rel-Eng,
and the Board on how to handle spins before it's really going to go further
16:20 < jwb> spins hosted on spins.fp.o that is
16:20 < dgilmore> jwb: fair enough
16:20 < dgilmore> ok not much else here
16:20 < dgilmore> we have the three meeting items
16:20 < dgilmore> so Floor open
16:21 < f13> I wanted ot bring some thing up
16:21 < dgilmore> f13: shoot
16:21 < f13> I want to make infrastructure aware that I'm preparing a FESCo
proposal on bringin the Jpackage team into our infrastructure, a la OLPC
16:21 < jcollie> that'd be cool
16:21 < f13> they have a need for good infrastructure, and we have a need for a
closer and easier relationship with jpackage.
16:22 < f13> bringing them into our infrastructure accomlishes both of these needs,
and opens up the door to many other benifits
16:22 < jcollie> would they still be able to do the nosrc rpms of the non-free
16:22 < dgilmore> f13: i think its a great thing
16:23 < jwb> doesn't jpackage do non-free stuff?
16:23 < dgilmore> f13: however we really need that blade center installed first i
16:23 < f13> the need for nosrc stuff goes out the door with openjdk
16:23 < dgilmore> jcollie: they would have to go. or be done outside of fedora
16:23 < f13> and they wouldn't be allowed to bring it into our infrastrucutre,
adn they know that
16:23 < jwb> who's going to sponsor them?
16:23 < f13> dgilmore: we may need a number of things first, and that will be
accounted in my proposal.
16:24 < f13> we don't need to accomplish this tomorrow, it can be a gradual
16:24 < jwb> sorry, that's a FESCo question i gues
16:24 < dgilmore> f13: also we need more disk for cvs-int
16:24 < jwb> s
16:24 < f13> jcollie: I want to mentor a few of jpackage folks and get them setup as
16:24 < dgilmore> f13: that seems sane
16:24 < f13> dgilmore: or we need to actually prune lookaside cache.
16:24 < dgilmore> f13: i think we have always said we cant do that
16:25 < f13> which I call BS on, but *shrug*
16:25 < jcollie> could we just move the lookaside cache to a separate system?
16:25 < f13> anywho, I just want to make you guys aware that this is coming so that
you aren't blindsided
16:25 < dgilmore> f13: as long as well can still retrive the source. then i guess
16:25 < f13> the proposal will have language in it that it predicates upon
Infrastructure being able to fulfill the need
16:26 < f13> dgilmore: we only need the source for the things we are still offering
16:26 < jwb> i'm still confused
16:27 < f13> we may even be able to get them to donate some time/money/material to
the Infrastructure cause.
16:27 < f13> jwb: how can I clarify?
16:27 < jwb> do OLPC have some other setup where their packages don't follow the
fedora review process?
16:28 < dgilmore> f13: that is completely different to what mdomsch is trying to do
with being able to recreate srpms
16:28 < jwb> or are they treated as "normal" packages, with a special OLPC
16:28 < f13> jwb: no, the OLPC packages in the Fedora infrastructure have to follow
16:28 < dgilmore> jwb: they do and its not buit in Fedora
16:28 < f13> jwb: normal packages with olpc branch. Some don't have Fedora
16:28 < f13> some do.
16:28 < jwb> so why wouldn't we just get all the jpackage packages into fedora?
16:28 < dgilmore> jwb: anything in fedora cvs must meet fedora guidelines
16:28 -!- kital [n=Joerg_Si@fedora/kital] has joined #fedora-meeting
16:29 < f13> dgilmore: not extremely. For that case, we only need to be able to
recreate them of a certain age. Also, we can move the cruft to an archive box and not on
our production scm instance clogging up resources.
16:29 < f13> but this is talk for another time.
16:29 < dgilmore> jwb: for there noarch packages that are useable on all distros i
16:29 < f13> jwb: because jpackage provides cross-distro builds of the packages at a
different schedule than Fedora
16:29 < mdomsch> +1 to "archive box"
16:29 < mdomsch> there's a lot of stuff we'd like to hang onto, but not
necessarily keep super-live...
16:29 < f13> jwb: Fedora and RHEL aren't the only jpackage consumers.
16:30 < jwb> so now we're turning into rPath?
16:30 < f13> no, we're providing an opensource development lab and compelling
infrastructure for interesting opensource projects
16:30 < f13> jwb: they would be doing builds from their branch through our
buildsystem, and then releasing them however they see fit
16:30 * jwb saves the rest for FESCo
16:31 < f13> jwb: but it'll be come much easier to get their updates into Fedora
builds and vice versa.
16:31 < f13> jwb: I'd be happy to chat with you about it at any time.
16:31 < jwb> yeah, i might take you up on that
16:32 < mdomsch> as infrastructure team, I want to be careful about overcommitting
16:32 < mdomsch> but where we can offer assistance
16:32 < jwb> what he said
16:32 < mdomsch> I'd like to see us do so
16:32 < f13> nod
16:32 < jwb> we're at odds with other goals a bit i think
16:32 < mdomsch> and if we can get some resources from JPackage to help cover their
needs plus a bit, great
16:33 < jwb> hm, not goals. intiatives
16:33 < mdomsch> f13, please include in your proposal to FESCo the resource
16:33 < f13> mdomsch: I will be working on those next week.
16:33 < mdomsch> presuming JPackage has some
16:34 < f13> well, right now they have a box, with mock running on it
16:34 < f13> I think that's about it (:
16:34 < f13> but a good friend of mine was working on getting them more resources
and a better buildsystem. I've kind of usurped that, so we might be able to get him
to direct some of those donations our way
16:34 < f13> which don't help much when we don't have any frelling place to
/put/ them :/
16:36 < mdomsch> next topic?
16:36 < mdomsch> beta release on Tuesday, bits flowing to mirrors now
16:37 < dgilmore> mdomsch: :)
16:37 < dgilmore> f13: want to give a report on how the beta bits are flowing
16:37 < dgilmore> 'and how the changes have helped
16:38 < mdomsch> dgilmore, you mean reversing the streams
16:38 < mdomsch> ?
16:39 < f13> gaining control over the netapp has been invaluable
16:39 < f13> probably saved a good 3 to 5 days worth of delay this time around
16:39 < f13> mdomsch: do we have any idea how many mirrors have gotten the bits, or
are getting the bits?
16:39 < dgilmore> mdomsch: yes, and us pushing bits rather than RH IS
16:39 -!- rdieter is now known as rdieter_away
16:40 < mdomsch> f13, not yet
16:40 < mdomsch> we'll know more tomorrow
16:40 < mdomsch> MM hasn't picked up the fact that the dir is open yet
16:40 < f13> k
16:40 < f13> I don't have access to a mirror to verify that the bits are open
16:40 < mdomsch> i do, and they are
16:41 < dgilmore> :)
16:41 < mdomsch> receiving file list ... done

16:41 < mdomsch> ...
16:41 < dgilmore> ok anything else ?
16:42 < mdomsch> f13, are you going to do the .9-Beta hidden dir trick again in the
16:42 < mdomsch> that confused MM a bit
16:42 < mdomsch> because it can see .foo directories just fine
16:42 < f13> mdomsch: I don't have to, I could name it the final location and
just ensure permissions are right.
16:42 < mdomsch> and thought the version was literally ".9-Beta"
16:42 < mdomsch> ok, please do the latter then
16:42 < f13> I wasn't going to leave it unlocked with a . in the name
16:43 < f13> but until I could ensure the permissions were doing what I hoped they
would do I didn't want it obviously available to the world.
16:43 < mdomsch> sure
16:43 < f13> (having shell access to a mirror would help with this kind of thing)
16:43 < jwb> sekret
16:43 < mdomsch> f13, np, send ftp+fedora(a)redhat.com the IP of a box you want to
claim as a rel-eng mirror
16:43 < mdomsch> and just rsync -va ... but with no dest, so all you get is the file
16:44 < f13> mdomsch: good point, I should do that.
16:44 < mdomsch> sbathe isn't online atm
16:44 < mdomsch> she'll do it no problem
16:45 < mdomsch> ok, I"m out for the weekend - goodbye and good luck
