CPE Weekly: 2020-05-31
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.
See our wiki page here for more information: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/cpe/
Please check out our updated initiative timetable for briefing in new projects to our team here: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/cpe/time_tables/
*Note: Initiatives are large pieces of work that require a team of people and weeks/months to complete. Please continue to open tickets in the normal way for bugs, issues, etc.
Don't forget to view our taiga board to see the projects we are currently working on, what we have scoped and whats in our backlog https://tree.taiga.io/project/amoloney1-cpe-team-projects/kanban?epic=null
I also currently have weekly IRC office hours on #fedora-meeting-1 @ 1300 - 1400 UTC and I will have a bi-weekly office hours on Centos-meeting @ 1500 - 1600 UTC beginning June 9th also, with Rich Bowen helping me set it up, thanks Rich 🙂
There is (usually) no agenda for these meetings and is an open floor, so please feel free to stop by and chat casually, or about any projects the CPE team are working on/working on next. The choice of topic is completely yours 🙂
Just a quick note to say this project has not made any more notable progress. Our team have some very time-intensive projects currently in flight, so our focus has been and will be on the completion of these projects over the next few months. We are still using the gitlab project tracker https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/-/issues/217350 to record issues/technical requirements, and thank you again for your patience during this slower period of the project, it is very much appreciated.
* A reduced services offering of Fedora will be in effect from June 8th until July 28th, est.
* This is to complete the final shipment of hardware from Phoenix to Washington, so please be patient and understanding during this timeframe as some services will be off and the rest, much slower.
* Kevin Fenzi has sent some details on service validation and a call to arms to help us meet the June 15th deadline to have the reduced Fedora operational, please read:
* Details on what this move may mean for you can be found here
* Adding the ability to sign user agreements
* Adding the blog/website attribute for users
* Client library migration to python-freeipa 1.0.0.
* Project Dashboard here https://github.com/fedora-infra/mbbox/projects/1
* Sprint 3 is done:
* Refactor molecule test suit to share test-cases
* Koji-hub and koji-builder SSL issues solved
* Sprint 4 is in progress

* Post OCP4 cluster Installation tasks - storage, TLS cert/ IDP configs, exploring operators that we can use.
* We have a public accessible ocp4 cluster
(https://console-openshift-console.apps.ocp.ci.centos.org/). We are on the verge of figuring out subscriptions.
* Documentation: https://centosci.github.io/ocp4-docs/
* Linux 8.2 work is still with QA
* The team are working on adding some 8.2 builds to Stream that failed or did not make it into Stream for whatever reason.

Have a great weekend!
