Happy Friday everyone!

Welcome to the CPE team weekly project update mail!

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.

This document is currently built from individual reports rolled into a
google document which we edit and copy into a final document. We are
aware that this causes problems with some email readers, and are
working on a method to make this less problematic.

High Level Project Updates:


The team have been testing migrating away from Repospanner
Wrote a PoC migration script (taking care also of
requests/tickets/forks repositories)
RCM confirmed that it works
Next step is testing on https://git.stg.centos.org and we hope to have
an ETA on a migration time soon

CentOS Stream
Scoping meetings are ongoing


F31 Upgrades & Reinstallations
Updated s390x buildvm’
Updated buildvmhost-s390x-01
Updated ppc9-01 to f31 and all guests to f31, added on bug about qemu
in f31 on ppc64le not being able to do pseries-4.1 guests (the
default), switched to pseries-4.0.
Re-installed buildvm-aarch64-01/02/03 and buildvm-armv7-01/02/03 with
f31 and worked though issues with composes on them.

Rawhide Gating:
Bodhi 5.0 has been deployed for a week now and we are getting some
feedback on the new UI
We hope to incorporate some of this feedback in the 5.1 release
5.1 will include a fix needed by the CI pipeline
Ci pipeline on fedora-messaging
JMS plugin has been updated
That broke datagrepper: unix timestamp are in seconds, not
milliseconds and postgresql doesn’t like the year 51850
Fedora-messaging client on resultsdb had broke
Open ticket is for monitoring:

83x performance patch submitted as a pull request and is awaiting review.
Once the 83x patch is merged, we hope that it will be possible to make
a release/deployment.
It is possible that it will still be too slow so our next idea for
improvement involves changing the API that nodes use to synchronize
objects with each other.
