Good Morning Everyone,
The Fedora Infrastructure team has been working on making changes to the way
orphaned packages are being adopted as well as the way to set the monitoring
status for the integration with anitya (ie: https://release-monitoring.org
## Orphan packages
Currently if a package is orphaned there is no way to adopt it easily on
). You need to open a ticket on the
releng issue tracker and wait for someone to process that ticket.
This is going to change, new versions of pagure-dist-git and pagure will offer a
button on the left hand side menu offering to adopt orphaned packages.
This is already live in staging, so you can see how it looks there, for example:
(you'll need to be logged in)
Note: if the package is retired, you will still have to go through a releng
ticket as it will need to be unblocked in koji.
## Anitya integration
Currently if you want to tweak the setting for the anitya integration, you need
to open a pull-request on the fedora-scm-requests project at
That git repo is pretty big and once your pull-request is finally open, you
still have to wait for someone to merge it.
This is also going to change, new versions of pagure and pagure-dist-git offer a
drop-down menu on the left hand side menu to see and adjust the monitoring
status of the project.
This is also live in staging and you can see an example of a project who has set
its monitoring status to "monitoring":
(The status in staging have been imported from the fedora-scm-requests repo)
Feel free to play with this in staging and let us know if there is anything that
isn't working as expected or that you would like to change before we push this
to production (post F31-beta freeze).
Once the new versions of pagure, pagure-dist-git, anitya and the-new-hotness
have been deployed to production we will send another announcement for the
change and work on getting the different documentations updated.
Looking forward to hear from you,
Michal and Pierre
