# CPE Weekly: 2020-03-06

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.

## Fedora Updates
* Fedora Minimal Compose is being worked on currently for F32 beta

### Data Centre Move
* Please start to plan for 2-3 week outage of communishift starting
2020-04-12 to allow for the move
* Due to the data centre move, we cannot get a new box to run odcs-backend
* We are also scoping the work required for 'Minimum Viable Fedora' -
here is the link to the mail as a refresher of what to expect, and
what not https://lists.fedoraproject.org/archives/list/infrastructure@lists.fedoraproject.org/thread/PN6RL7XT3V7DVC7MK46H3QDEJPL5FRI6/
Our move dates are as follows:
* Move 1 April 13 to IAD2 (essential hardware)
* Move 2 April 13 to RDU-CC (communishift)
* Move 3 May 11 to IAD2 (QA equipment)
* Move 4 June 1 to IAD2 (anything and everything else)

### AAA Replacement
* Sprint 5 will see the team focusing on integration with FASJSON API
and 2FA token
* We have also decided to postpone testing of the new solution until
post data centre move to make sure it is
* As always, check out our progress on github here

### CI/CD

* Monitor-Gating: Blocked in staging because F32 isn’t branched off
there yet (Koji, Bodhi, PDC, https://pagure.io/releng/issue/9293)
* Automatic Release Tags and Changelog: Ongoing Devel-list thread here
* The team have moved to Jitsi video conferencing with interested
community members (ngompa, clime, mboddu, mhroncok) about the
different approaches to automatic release tags. Result: Approach
considering existing EVRs most palatable (over <#commits>.<#builds>).
* We now have a more official looking repo:
* The team also created implementation details and roadmap:

### Sustaining Team
* Old cloud is now officially retired
* Bodhi XSS vulnerability patched
* The team are also looking to prepare a Bodhi 5.2 release
* Fedora Minimal Compose (Use ODCS to trigger test composes)
* The team are also scoping the Mbbox upgrade and Task breakdown
* Support community members helping with Badges outage
* The teams has started a conversation about Infra Ticket prioritization

## Docs

### Misc Updates/Review Requests
* Initial f32-updates-testing push is fixed
* Fixed perms on f32 ostree to finish updates pushes
* Anitya tests are fixed
* Failing tests in the-new-hotness being resolved
* Please review Packit integration in the-new-hotness
* Please review KeepassXC flatpak issue
* Please review Jms-messaging-plugin reviews

## CentOS Updates

### CentOS
* Ppc64le kickstarter added for CentOS 8
* This will still need to be tested and added in production
* The infrastructure is stable overall though!

### CentOS Stream
* We are now working on the sync-to-git process
* Tycho module was successfully added to Stream in development!
* We are also getting closer to having a contributor workflow model
available for later this year - watch this space!
* We are also working with upstream to generate reports for Stream too

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!
