Releases and Packages

Preparation for CentOS Stream 9

The Cloud SIG's goal is to release the next OpenStack coordinated release Xena, planned for Oct 2021, on CentOS Stream 9. To achieve this goal, some preparations tasks are being carried out in the RDO Project:

  • Both the dependencies and OpenStack packages have been built for CentOS Stream 9 using the published composes.
  • Those packages are being validated to find potential issues early, report them, and propose fixes when possible.
  • Coordination with upstream projects that require relevant changes to support the new CentOS Stream.

While the results looks promising, there are a number of challenges that may put our plans at risk.

  • Uncertainty about CS9 GA plans and availability on the Community Build System. Any help on that from the CentOS team would be a great help.
  • Coordination with other SIGs. CloudSIG depends on the builds from other SIGs, as Storage, Infra, Messaging, OpTools and NFV.

Continuos Integration

Cloud SIG is migrating all their jobs from a shared jenkins instance (ci.centos.org) to a new private instance running in the CentOS CI OpenShift environment.

Meetings and communication

The periodic meeting has been rescheduled from biweekly to monthly on the first Thursday at 1500 UTC in #centos-meeting.
After the recent changes in freenode irc network, and given the special relationship of RDO with both CentOS as part of the Cloud SIG and OpenStack project, it has been decided that #rdo channel will be available both in Libera Chat (as defined by CentOS) and OFTC (OpenStack choice) networks, although most activity is taking place in OFTC.

We will be holding another online CentOS Dojo on October 7th and 8th.

The call for presentations is now open.

More details about the event are in the wiki, which will be updated with additional information as we have it.

Discussion: CL8 EOL messaging

Messaging around CentOS 8 End Of Life, as discussed on the centos-devel list

Bex (absent) provided this update via email :

  1. No one should be automatically migrated between distributions. Even in the case of CentOS Stream being a "successor" distribution to CentOS Linux. This should be a deliberate action on the part of the user. Alerting users to the status of their current software and providing options is, generally, a good thing.
  2. The end of builds for CentOS Linux 8 is still 31 December 2021. If there is a slip in the build of CentOS Linux 8.5 code then that activity may continue after 31 December, within reason. There will be no updates published beyond 31 December 2021, other than, if required, the CentOS Linux 8.5 release as noted above. It is important that the expectations do not get changed. The slip allowance is here so that engineers are not asked to do super-human work to meet the 31 December deadline.
  3. The final builds of CentOS Linux 8 should be stored and managed per the Project's decisions. In general, so long as that code is not modified after its final update as stated in #2 above, it can be actively mirrored, vaulted, or otherwise handled as the project deems appropriate. Again, reasonability applies.

Josh indicates that we will ship the zero-day updates to 8.5, and he will take this discussion back to Red Hat to ensure that this happens.

Proposed: January 31, 2022 to retire/archive content (Approved by consensus).

In the event of a serious bug in this time window, we should immediately retire/archive the content. Tie this to a specific CVSS v3 score (9+)? (Approved by consensus)

Davide : Motd update ? dnf plugin ? print a message if the mirror is missing ? This was discussed and there are concerns about whether this would interfer with automated workflows that parse dnf output. Historical precedent was offered for my auto-updating motd may be poorly received.

Thomas : advertise C8 -> CS8 procedure

Jim : point people to the FAQ

Action: Rich will draft EOL messaging, run by board, and then socialize on centos-devel before promoting further.

Academic RHEL offering?

Bex update:

Red Hat is continuing to work on updates to our published Academic program, however the program, as described, has been very interesting to parties that have contacted us and we haven't seen a reason to make wholesale changes in response to the CentOS Linux 8 decision. If the Board has additional information to share, please do so. We expect blog posts from Red Hat to highlight this program this month, these should feature a change to help smaller institutions have an easier time consuming the program. Those details are being finalized, but the core of the program remains intact.

Expect more info from RH in the coming weeks

Open ticket review

[19] GDPR process needs

[Rich] AIUI, CPE/Infrastructure have a GDPR process, and are willing/able to handle all of our GDPR needs. That said, we haven’t had any legitimate GDPR requests in more than a year. Closed ticket.

[11] Trademark guidelines review/audit - Feedback from Bex/Karsten needed before discussing it.

[Rich] I took the liberty to close this ticket, since we do not appear to be addressing a specific issue/concern, but, rather, just wanted some kind of review of the existing policy. I would be glad to re-open if someone has an actual expressed concern that we need to address.

[45] CentOS variant artifacts (ISOs, disk images, etc.) branding

I feel like we made a decision on this in our last meeting, but somehow it was not captured in the ticket. (Note: Confirmed: We minuted in June that we had decided, but not what the decision was) Would appreciate someone updating the ticket with that decision, if possible, or we can re-discuss.

Naming for variant artifacts / experimental live image from Hyperscale SIG

Davide : no confusion / spins

Define what is a Spin and list them ? guidelines

Action: Thomas and Davide to come back with a proposal.

[01] Shift Board to be more transparent

Aspirational, ongoing issue

Next step in this process is to open our board meetings to a wider audience. We discussed doing this after July. Are we still in agreement to do that? If so, what is “wider audience”?

IDEA : Send to centos-devel the invitation, rather than posting a URL publicly, possibly resulting in meeting disruptions.

Several directors offered corporate Zoom accounts and will look into that. Rich to follow up in a week or two.

Thomas : We need to set certain expectations of our attendees - Following agenda, no overtime, moderation

Pat: remind folks to open tickets to get topics on our list, rathern than expecting that they can merely speak up.

Rich and Davide : hackmd for agenda.

Matthias : Explain how to engage with the community

Public video recording, though not streamed, to offer the possibility to edit before it goes public.

Action - Rich to draft messaging about this to send to list.

[03] Getting official CentOS images into Azure + AWS Cloud images status

No action

[13] Get an official CentOS image in to WSL

No action

[22] Draft all recent governance changes or ideas for Board discussion

[Rich] I will move forward with socializing the new governance documentation in the coming weeks, minus items that are still being debated internally at Red Hat, so that we can finally make progress on this.

[27] Providing Official AMIs in Amazon CN regions

No action

Community Manager report

Will be starting director interviews tomorrow, starting with new directors, for the CentOS blog/YouTube.

It’s time to start planning a September dojo - expect to see proposed dates and a CFP in the coming 2 weeks.

Rich will be out of office, and completely offline, July 29th through August 9th

Other Business

SIG reports

Post-meeting IRC meeting:

Last month we discussed doing a post-meeting IRC office hours to answer questions. We did not take action on this.

Action: Rich will find the Doodle poll we did on this for preffered times, and announce this as part of the broader invitation to upcoming board meetings.

Discussed issue #45 regarding naming of SIG/spin artifacts

 

  • Community Architect corner

Adjourned :42

Dear CentOS Enthusiasts,

Here's what's happening in our community over the past month.

CentOS Stream 9 is open for contribution: Container images and a note about new composes

We've been working on producing more artifacts for CentOS Stream 9, those can be found at the composes location: https://composes.stream.centos.org

You'll notice a few directories under there, we recommend folks who have been consuming CentOS Stream 9 to use the composes under the 'production/' directory. Composes in the production directory are what we'll eventually use to publish to the mirrors

Here's a short description of each compose type:

- Test composes: run ad-hoc against content that may not have made it through testing/RHEL gating yet

- Development composes: run regularly (goal of 1 per day) against gated content

- Production composes: run regularly (goal of 1 per day) against gated content and are candidates for promoting to the mirrors

Container images are regularly produced from the Development composes, you can find those at quay.io/centos/centos:stream9-development

We are also refining our quickstart contribution guide: https://docs.centos.org/en-US/stream-contrib/quickstart/

The CentOS Stream 9 repos have been open for a few months now, but this captures the process if you'd like to participate and make change. File a
bugzilla, and happy patching!

What you can expect for the rest of the quarter:

- Cloud images are coming in the next month or so
- Signed packages are coming in the next month or so
- Publishing to the mirrors will happen later this quarter

If you have any questions, direct these to Brian Stinson, or the centos-devel mailing list.

New Board Members

We're very pleased to announce that the CentOS Board of Directors welcomed two new members in our June board meeting, and they will join us for the first time in the July meeting.

The new directors are Josh Boyer and Davide Cavalca, both of whom have been around the CentOS community for a long time.

Josh is a Distinguished Engineer at Red Hat, and works on the team that produces RHEL. Davide is a Production Engineer at Facebook, and has spoken many times at various CentOS Dojos around the world about his work with CentOS at Facebook.

We hope you'll join us in welcoming them, and we look forward to their participation in the governance of our project in the coming years.

Over the coming week or two, I hope to have some interviews with them, so you can get a deeper look into why they've agreed to be on the board, and what their vision is for the coming years.

CVEs in CentOS Stream

Over the past few months, we've seen some confusion in the community regarding how CVEs are handled in CentOS Stream. Red Hat engineer Carl George wrote a detailed post to the centos-devel mailing list last week, using libxml2 as an example, to talk about how they actually work.

You can read that post in the mailing list archive if you're not subscribed to the list.

The short story is that if a CVE is not part of a security embargo, it goes into CentOS Stream with regular updates, but if it is, it'll hit RHEL first. (That's not Red Hat or CentOS policy, but, rather, the policy of the CVE registry itself, so that's the behavior you'll see on any open source project.) But Carl goes into it in much more detail, so you'll want to read the full write-up.

IRC Move

We wanted to update you on the changes to our IRC presence. A few weeks ago, there were some changes to the management of the Freenode IRC network that resulted in a large number of the operator staff leaving and forming a new IRC network, Libera.chat. We decided, at that time, to follow them, in order to stick with the staff and policies that we have been familiar with for the past more than ten years.

Further developments since then, including the removal of many popular channels, including all of the CentOS channels, have demonstrated that we made the right call, and we appreciate John's ("Bahhumbug") leadership in this decision.

All of the former channels that were on freenode are now on Libera.chat, and with the help of the operator staff, we have restored the channel ops, permissions and roles.

A huge thank you goes out to Dave "bigpresh" Precious and all of the Libera.chat staff for their professionalism and assistance during this disruptive transition.

We encourage you to join us on #centos on the irc.Libera.chat network. Our other channels, along with instructions for joining and registering your IRC name, are on the CentOS website.

SIG Reports

This month, we hear from two of our SIGs - both of which are relatively new. The kmods SIG published their first quarterly report to the CentOS Blog, as did the Hyperscale SIG. The kmods SIG was approved during the June Board of Directors meeting.

We're particularly excited about the Hyperscale SIG's work on producing live DVD images. If you're interested in the wider availability of live DVD images for CentOS Linux and CentOS Stream, we encourage you to talk to the people on the Hyperscale SIG.

Purpose

Packaging and maintaining kernel modules for CentOS Stream.

Membership Update

The SIG elected Peter Georg and Jonathan Billings as co-chairs.

No SIG members have been added since the SIG has been approved (June 9th).

New Packages

No packages have been released yet.

Health and Activity

The Kmods SIG has been approved recently. So far it has mainly been busy with bootup activities and establishing packaging guidelines.

Communication

Regular meetings are scheduled every two weeks (on even weeks) on Monday 1500 UTC in #centos-meeting. Everyone is welcome to join!

Roadmap Decisions

  • License restrictions: The SIG agreed to provide GPLv2 kernel modules only for now. Review by Red Hat Legal is required for each specific non-GPLv2 kernel module before it can be packaged.
  • Kernel module packaging: The SIG agreed to work on kmod packages only for now. Other approaches, e.g. dkms and akmods, might be added at a later time.

Open Issues

  • Package structure for kernel modules: The SIG is currently looking at how to structure packages for kernel modules. Anyone familiar with packaging kernel modules is very much welcome to contribute to this discussion.
  • Signing kernel modules: This requires collaboration and further discussion with Infra SIG. Especially about how to securely store a SIG specific key that can be used in CBS, but is not accessible by any unauthorized person.

Issues for the Board

We have no issues to bring to the board’s attention at this time.

This report covers work that happened between April 2nd and June 30th. For previous work, see the 2021Q1 report.

Purpose

The Hyperscale SIG focuses on enabling CentOS Stream deployment on large-scale infrastructures and facilitating collaboration on packages and tooling.

Membership update

Since the last update, the SIG gained one new member (Jim Heald).

We welcome anybody that’s interested and willing to do work within the scope of the SIG to join and contribute. See the membership section on the wiki for the current members list and how to join.

Releases and Packages

Unless otherwise specified, packages are available in our main repository, which can be enabled with dnf install centos-hyperscale-release. Please report any issues with these packages on our package-bugs tracker.

systemd

Our most recent backport of systemd is version 248 based on the Fedora packaging. This release includes a host of new features including system extension images and systemd-oomd.

systemd-oomd was declared stable in systemd 248 and was adopted in Fedora 34 as the default userspace out-of-memory killer. It monitors memory pressure thresholds and kills processes at the cgroup level. The systemd-oomd-defaults package, which provides the policy used by Fedora, is also backported to our repository.

In addition to release builds, we’re also producing daily systemd builds via the CentOS CI infrastructure. These builds track the upstream git head and can be useful to test the latest changes and features, while also helping spot potential build issues ahead of time.

Finally, we’ve published a staging tree and our build and release scripts to make future development work more accessible to contributors.

LLVM

A non-modular version of the LLVM 12 compiler suite is now shipped in Hyperscale. This is meant as a stopgap, and will be removed once a modular version of LLVM 12 becomes available in CentOS Stream proper.

Because this is a set of non-modular packages overriding a module, it is being delivered in a new repository to be used as a modularity hotfix repository. This repository can be enabled with dnf install centos-release-hyperscale-hotfixes.

DNF/RPM stack with CoW support

An updated packaging stack (rpm, dnf, libdnf, librepo) is now available in the experimental repository. These packages include several improvements and bugfixes to support the ongoing Copy-on-Write work. The experimental repo can be enabled with dnf install centos-release-hyperscale-experimental.

Kernel

We have a 5.12.4 release of the Linux kernel currently in our experimental repository. This kernel has btrfs and Kernel Live Patching enabled. We’ve taken steps to ensure our nascent kernel process is compatible with kernel-ark to enable smoother updates and CI.

kpatch

We ship a modified version of kpatch 0.9.3 that includes a few additional backports from upstream. Our packaging of kpatch also includes the kpatch-build tool, which can be used to convert kernel patches to be then applied onto a system that supports Kernel Live Patching.

Storage stack and Installer

We have rebuilt a number of components to restore Btrfs support:

  • libblockdev
  • python-blivet
  • udisks2

and built a backport of btrfs-progs. Additionally, we have branched and built the Anaconda installer based on version 33.16.5.2 with support for Btrfs restored and a number of backports from Anaconda 34 to enable building spins based on Hyperscale content. Our version of the installer also includes the anaconda-live package for supporting installation from live media.

Container image

A minimal container image based on the Hyperscale SIG repos and packages is now available on Quay.io and can be used via Docker or Podman:

podman run -a stdin,stdout,stderr -t quay.io/centoshyperscale/centos:stream8

This container image is built from scratch, and in the future we plan to leverage the CentOS CI infrastructure to automate the build process.

Live media

An experimental CentOS Hyperscale Workstation Live DVD image is now available. This image is currently based on the GNOME desktop shipped in CentOS Stream 8 and is combined with the packages we’ve shipped in the Hyperscale SIG, notably the live installer and storage stack software. A KDE Plasma variant is forthcoming.

The live media is built using livecd-creator from the LiveCD Tools provided by the livecd-tools package in EPEL. We published the kickstarts as well.

Issues with this image can be reported on our spin-bugs tracker.

libvirt

We ship an updated backport of libvirt 7.1.0. Due to CBS being unable to build modules, this is shipped as a non-modular package in the hotfixes repository mentioned earlier.

mock-centos-sig-configs

We have announced the availability of a mock-centos-sig-configs project to hold mock configurations for CentOS SIGs. The goal is to make it easier to build packages against a given SIG when doing local testing and development. The project currently contains configs for the Hyperscale SIG, but other SIGs are welcome to contribute their configs as well.

Other packages

There are several other backports we’re shipping within the SIG:

We’re also made available a modified version of util-linux 2.32.1 that includes support for setpriv --reset-env and for the CAP_CHECKPOINT_RESTORE capability.

Health and Activity

The SIG continues to maintain a healthy development pace.

Meetings

The SIG holds regular bi-weekly meetings on Wednesdays at 16:00 UTC. Meetings are logged and the minutes for past meetings are available.

The SIG uses the #centos-hyperscale IRC channel for ad-hoc communication and work coordination, and the centos-devel mailing list for async discussions and announcements. As of April, the SIG also holds open monthly video conference sessions to promote collaboration and social interaction.

Conference talks

An update on the SIG was presented at CentOS Dojo, May 2021 (recording). SIG activities were also covered as part of LISA21 (recording), and another talk has also been submitted for DevConf.us 2021.

As of June, Neal Gompa has been streaming ad-hoc SIG-related work sessions on his Twitch channel. To this end, we have created a dedicated CentOSHyperscale channel that we plan to use going forward to promote and collate SIG related content.

Planned work

The SIG tracks pending work as issues on our Pagure repository. Notable projects currently in flight include:

  • productionize the Live media image
  • integrate btrfs transactional updates as an optional feature
  • setup a continuous build pipeline for the container image on the CentOS CI infrastructure
  • integrate our kernel development process with kernel-ark
  • build a set of Hyperscale-enabled Cloud images
  • enable fsverity support in rpm

Issues for the Board

We have no issues to bring to the board’s attention at this time.

This is a followup to our earlier post regarding CentOS' move to the Libera IRC network.

Thanks primarily to the efforts of John "Bahhumbug" and our other IRC ops, the move has been completed, and all channels have been moved from Freenode to irc.Libera.chat, complete with the topics, bots, access lists, and supporting documentation.

Note also that we have a list of channels in the wiki, which includes channels for specific topics, such as #centos (our general/main channel), #centos-devel for developer and other technical questions, #centos-stream for CentOS Stream specific questions, and several others.

You will need to re-register your user account on Libera, as these were not migrated over.

We look forward to seeing you on Libera.chat!

 

The CentOS Board of Directors is delighted to welcome two new directors - Davide Cavalca and Josh Boyer - to the Board.

Please join us in welcoming them, and thanking them for their willingness to dedicate some of their time to the endeavor of steering the CentOS Project.

Once again, we thank outgoing directors Karsten Wade and Carl Trieloff for their years of service.

(Yes, we're a little late this month. Sorry about that.)

Dear CentOS Enthusiasts,

Here's what's happening around the CentOS community lately.

CentOS Linux 8.4 Released

We are pleased to announce the general availability of the latest version of CentOS Linux 8. Effective immediately, this is the current release for CentOS Linux 8 and is tagged as 2105, derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.4 Source Code. More details are available at https://blog.centos.org/2021/06/centos-linux-8-2105-released/

CentOS Stream Q&A at LISA '21

At the recent USENIX/LISA conference, Mike McGrath and Gunnar Hellekson hosted a Q&A session for discussion of what's happening in CentOS Stream, and other related topics around the CentOS community. The video is available on YouTube, and we welcome your further questions, which you can bring to any of our mailing lists or other public forums.

Topics discussed include proposed special interest groups (SIGs), the downstream rebuild projects, the various Free RHEL offerings, and many other things.

IRC Moving To Libera.Chat

Due to recent changes in the management of the Freenode IRC network, the CentOS project has decided to move our IRC presence off of Freenode over to the new Libera.chat network. The CentOS community continues to maintain a number of IRC channels for simple text-based discussion of a variety of topics around the project.

There are many IRC clients available, or, if you prefer, you can connect with the web client which Libera provides.

CPE Is Hiring

The Community Platform Engineering group, or CPE for short, is the Red Hat team combining IT and release engineering from Fedora and CentOS. Our goal is to keep core servers and services running and maintained, build releases, and other strategic tasks that need more dedicated time than volunteers can give.

CPE is hiring new talent to come work full time on Fedora and CentOS. You can read more details in their blog post, (two of the positions are already filled) or apply directly here:

SIGs

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are probably the most exciting part of the CentOS project, where people come together to do interesting things on top of the CentOS platform. There's been a lot of SIG activity in recent months, with new SIGs being proposed and approved.

SIG Process Review

Over the last few weeks we have been collecting feedback from SIG participants about the existing SIG process, and ways that we can improve it and make it more transparent and accessible to a wider audience.

The notes from that exercise are in THIS blog post, and will be the basis of some policy rewriting that the Community Architect will be doing over the coming months. If you're interested in being involved in that process, please watch the centos-devel mailing list for more information once that process starts.

Virtualization SIG

- upstream released 4.4.6 based on CentOS Stream 8
- oVirt within VIrt SIG released builds to CentOS Stream repos
- oVirt Spring 2021 survey results available: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1RcSzRQ2YmB2U3MNlWk0YqTVFdGYIdguk46K2A-DZEvc/viewanalytics showing good adoption of CentOS Stream and growing interest in new distributions based on RHEL 8.

OpsTools SIG

Purpose

Provide tools and documentation, recommendation and best practices for operators of large infrastructure.

Membership update

Sadly, we did not attract new volunteers to contribute to the SIGs purposes, but at the same time, we didn't loose any.

Activity

After initial euphoria setting up the SIG and getting to work, we can now observe a kind of settlement. We are still working on the upgrade of collectd to version 5.12. At the same time, and a bit related, collectd upstream has a CI issue we can not fix at the moment. Thus, there was a mirror organisation created and work is ongoing to establish a working CI there.

There is also an interest in investigating in loki as tool to allow multi-tenant log aggregation.

Following the lead of the CentOS project itself, we have switched our IRC channel over to libera.chat.

Issues for the board

Nothing to report.

 

Proposed: Kmods SIG

There's a proposal for a kmods SIG that will come before the Board of Directors next month. The proposal is now in the wiki, and available for your comments.

The kmods SIG will focus on providing kernel modules currently not available in CentOS Stream. If you have comments about the proposal, or want to volunteer to be involved, please bring your comments to the thread on the centos-devel mailing list.

New: CentOS Stream Feature Request SIG

In the May Board meeting, the CentOS Stream Feature Request SIG was approved, and they had their first meeting to discuss how things are going to work. The SIG exists to serve as a gate for feature requests that are first developed in CentOS Stream from contributors who wish to request these features to be included in future RHEL releases.

If you are interested in being involved in this SIG, or if you have changes that you are interested in getting in to either CentOS Stream or future RHEL releases, plan to attend the next meeting, which will be at 16:00 UTC on Tuesdays.

Rebuild Community News

Our friends in the Alma project recently announced their AlmaLinux OS 8.4 release.

And you can read the news from the Rocky Linux project HERE.
