have a lot of infra-types. It's kind of amazing in a bad way that
despite all that, we don't really have an easy way for more people to
help on that side.
There definitely is...become an appentice, send patches for things, get
added to other groups and help out with that area.
True more access takes more time, but we definitely have had community
folks helping out.
Pagure as a project is starting to pick up steam in its own right. And
users outside of Fedora (both public and private) are also turning
into contributors. If anything, this is one of the better successes
we've had in a while.
As for the feature development, Pagure is keeping pace with solutions
like GitHub. We're now at the point where Pagure meets the features
that Debian was requesting for their Alioth migration, and other
groups are considering rolling out Pagure instances as well.
As for the pagure.io forge, a large part of its lack of success is that
people don't know how to move to it. Heck, even I don't really know
how to effectively migrate a project from GitHub.com
some other site to Pagure.io and migrate things like issues, PRs, etc.
It is a good solution and it is developing rapidly into being a good
competitor to the others.
was used to migrate things from trac, and it has a github mode, but I am
not sure what state it's in.

I think it's pretty obvious our Copr host platform (RHOSP 5) has been
a disappointment. It's unfortunate that there's no formal avenue for
people to sponsor and offer resources to improve services like Copr
and assist with improving the quality of the service. People want to
depend on it, and it's still not getting the love it needs.
I'm not sure how donated resources could help here.
How could we trust that they were not tampering with builds?
How about someone donating instances that are all slow, slowing down
What happens if the network is down between copr and the donated stuff?
Its a can of worms. ;( I'm sure there are solutions to all these, but
copr doesn't have any of those in place currently.
Supposedly it was going to be upgraded and improved, but I dunno
what's going on there. Beyond that, we should consider making it
possible for people and companies to be able to sponsor effort and
resources in Fedora, similar to what openSUSE does. That's how their
OBS has so much more resources than our Koji and Copr systems
I have been working on a new openstack for the last N months.
It's pretty close to ready finally, but it sounds like perhaps we want
to drop it and move stuff elsewhere now.

Losing the ability for people to be able to trivially self-host
variants of our infrastructure would be a huge loss, in my mind.
