# 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
* Staging instance of release-monitoring.org migrated to OCP4 (fixed 
authentication issue)
* the-new-hotness 1.2.1 released and deployed on production
* Got a bunch of f34 machines reinstalled with f36.
* In the middle of upgrading the wiki (some plugins and theme currently 
broken in staging)
* Image builder prod deployment in process, hit some snags with networks
* Map of critical services is now available in [Fedora Infra 

### CentOS Infra including CentOS CI
* Git.centos.org [scheduled 
(new RHEL8 hosts being prepared)

### Release Engineering
* Fedora 34 is EOL
* Perl side-tag merged into Fedora 37

## 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.

* Completed scripting for initial import of module RPMs and module-* 
tags.  Initial importing in progress to c9s koji from c8s koji..
* Working on automated scripting to pull new builds so that the c9s koji 
can be automatically updated until we shift to the new koji builder for 
c8s as well as c9s.

## CentOS Duffy CI
Goal of this Initiative
Duffy is a system within CentOS CI infrastructure allowing tenants to 
provision and access machines (physical and/or virtual, of different 
architectures and configurations) for the purposes of CI testing. 
Development of Duffy is largely finished, we're currently planning and 
testing deployment scenarios.

* Release 3.0.1, 3.1.0, 3.2.0 (maybe shouldn’t have skipped betas 🤔).
* Add client (end user) CLI commands for requesting/retiring/etc. sessions.
* Add API endpoints and corresponding CLI commands for retrieving 
information about configured node pools.
* Fix dependencies to have finer-granular installation options using 
Python package extras (client CLI, task worker, current and legacy web 
API servers).

## Package Automation (Packit Service)
Goal of this initiative
Automate RPM packaging of infra apps/packages

* Working on adding packit to datagrepper and noggin
* Fasjson-client in bugzilla review

## 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.

* We now have a very early barebones 
in place which makes use of authlib to authenticate over oidc with 
* Working towards implementing the existing flask-oidc API to retrieve 
user data.

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.

* This week we have 6018 (+155) packages, from 2730 (+58) source packages
* Unused marketing information and links were removed from EPEL docs
* Fedora's backported java_arches macro got merged into epel9

Kindest regards,
CPE Team
