# Highlights of the week

## Infrastructure & Release Engineering
Goal of this Initiative
Purpose of this team is to take care of day to day business regarding 
CentOS and Fedora Infrastructure and Fedora release engineering work.
It’s responsible for services running in Fedora and CentOS 
infrastructure and preparing things for the new Fedora release (mirrors, 
mass branching, new namespaces etc.).
The ARC (which is a subset of the team) investigates possible 
initiatives that CPE might take on.

### Fedora Infra
* Fas2 is scaled down to 0 instances since last week. Farewell!
* Openshift3 is ready for retirement, will be taking it down later today
* Got toddlers working in staging openshift
* Email thread on infra-sig packages, please contribute
* Koji hubs reinstalled with f36, and z/vm s390x builders upgraded to f36
* Business as usual items

### CentOS Infra including CentOS CI
* Issue with mirrors and dnf being out of sync. PR merged today to fix
* Mirror requests

### Release Engineering
* A few rawhide compose issues, already fixed

## CentOS Stream
Goal of this Initiative
This initiative is working on CentOS Stream/Emerging RHEL to make this 
new distribution a reality. The goal of this initiative is to prepare 
the ecosystem for the new CentOS Stream.

* Figured out the root cause of missing module components in CentOS 
Stream 8. Have a script to catch the cases, monitoring it.

## Flask-oidc: oauth2client replacement
Goal of this initiative
Flask-oidc is a library used across the Fedora infrastructure and is the 
client for ipsilon for its authentication. flask-oidc uses oauth2client. 
This library is now deprecated and no longer maintained. This will need 
to be replaced with authlib.

* Finally happy enough with our code, that we started to port it back 
into the flask-oidc library itself.
* Working on a PR

Goal of this initiative
Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (or EPEL) is a Fedora Special 
Interest Group that creates, maintains, and manages a high quality set 
of additional packages for Enterprise Linux, including, but not limited 
to, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), CentOS and Scientific Linux (SL), 
Oracle Linux (OL).

EPEL packages are usually based on their Fedora counterparts and will 
never conflict with or replace packages in the base Enterprise Linux 
distributions. EPEL uses much of the same infrastructure as Fedora, 
including buildsystem, bugzilla instance, updates manager, mirror 
manager and more.

* EPEL9 is up to 6608 (+92) packages from 2956 (+45) source packages
* resolved "fails to install" bug for 
* filed various "fails to install" bugs for epel packages
* notable epel9 additions:
(unblocks multiple other packages)

Kindest regards,
CPE Team
