Highlights of the week Infrastructure & Release Engineering Goal of this

The 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.

Update Fedora Infra

   - Most apps have moved over to the OpenShift4 cluster. Hopefully, the
   transition should be finishing up this week.
   - Wiki: All upgraded in production and working (thanks Ryan!)
   - Resultsdb: All moved over to OpenShift 4 in prod and working (thanks
   - Business proceeding as usual

CentOS Infra including CentOS CI

   - Kerberos settings switch for git.centos.org (kcm on el8 vs keyring on
   el7) for lookaside upload CGI <https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issue/811>
   - Issue on iad2 hosted reference mirror
   <https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issue/812>[2] (epel.next and
   mirrormanager), all fixed now
   - Duffy CI ongoing tasks and deployments (all announced)
   - Equinix nodes migration <https://pagure.io/centos-infra/issue/816>[3]
   (on their request)
   - Business proceeding as usual

Release Engineering

   - Compose-tracker updated to f36 in staging, production happening
   - Python 3.11 merged to rawhide
   - MBS randomly fails to process builds
   - Rawhide compose failures recently (syslinux retirement, then python
   3.11 merge) all fixed now
   - Business proceeding as usual

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.

   - CentOS Stream 8: Manually keeping regular RPMs and module RPMs updated
   on the koji.stream server as current updates are composed and released.

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 version 3.2.1
   - Docs, docs, docs and a Dojo

Package Automation (Packit Service) Goal of this initiative

Automate RPM packaging of infra apps/packages

   - Mostly business as usual
   - Thanks again to all who are reviewing our PRs
   - Most of our GitHub critical apps are enabled now or close to being

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.

   - POC working using authlib, tidying up code to prepare to submit a PR
   back to upstream

EPEL 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

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 a build system, Bugzilla instance, updates manager, mirror
manager and more.

   - This week we have 6442 (+127)  packages, from 2882 (+76) source
   - Containerd and puppet retired from EPEL7 because of upstream EOL and
   multiple CVEs.
   - Caddy was updated, fixing 4 CVEs in EPEL9
