CPE Weekly: 2020-03-28

Saturday , 28, March 2020 Leave a comment

Background:

The Community Platform Engineering group 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.

For better communication, we will be giving weekly reports to the
CentOS and Fedora communities about the general tasks and work being
done. Also for better communication between our groups we have
created #redhat-cpe on Freenode IRC! Please feel free to catch us
there, a mail has landed on both the CentOS and Fedora devel lists
with context here.

* If or when our timelines become affected, we will inform you
immediately of any outages, downtimes, etc a delay could cause.

* Thank you for your understanding at this particularly uncertain and
worrying times.

beginning the project in mid-Jan

* Our next steps in this project is to demo to the team for feedback
and then continue to develop CentOS authentication, more user focused
features, request for more feedback and test, test test!

CI/CD

* Monitor-gating is now running in production and has already caught a
couple of issues with bodhi (both in stg and in prod)!

* Rpmautospec

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1816124

GitForge Decision

* After evaluating over 300 user stories from multiple stakeholders we
have aligned on a decision for the Gitforge that CPE will operate for
the coming years. We are opting for Gitlab for our dist git and
project hosting and will continue to run pagure.io with community
assistance.

* Check out our GitForge decision on the Fedora Community blog
https://communityblog.fedoraproject.org/

* And at the CentOS blog page
https://blog.centos.org/2020/03/git-forge-decision/

* Keep an eye out for mails in the coming months to the devel lists as
we plan transitions and next steps with GitLab

* We would like to express our sincere thank you to all who
contributed requirements to us!

As always, feedback is welcome, and we will continue to look at ways
to improve the delivery and readability of this weekly report.

Have a great weekend!
