… but only if there is an effort at the Fedora level to act on this
list. That's means infra time, and that means Fedora leadership time to
make sure infra has this time and actually uses it to fix the issues
Having played this game also several times.. as soon as people aren't
still able to do what they were doing already we get variations of the
"What do you mean we only have 4/5ths of the builders so you can work
out how to make the new system work at scale.. I don't care, move it
"What do you mean that I have to do these new steps because it will
drop the amount of time rawhide or a release is broken. I don't give a
crap about rawhide or the releases. I want my package built now
because I have other things to do!"
"When I said I wanted less breakage I didn't meant my packages, I
meant those people using that <arch|development stack|toolset> which
are always breaking things for my builds.
Those are the extremes which people remember, but all the little ones
about "why do builds take so long?" "does infra actually do
"ugh another packaging change, why are they making it so hard." adds
up also. Eventually people working things (or the leadership) gets
tired of 400 packagers grousing and says "that's enough.. just keep
doing what you were doing.. we will try this again later."
So we like many middle aged communities, end up in a state where we
have found a local minima of grumpiness. People dislike where we are,
but every change seems to make things worse enough that people just
want what they had more. We think that the reason no one wants to live
around us anymore is because 'the other people' cause so much noise,
without realizing that is our own constant low-level complaining about
everything which people are tired of.
This is going to take more than infrastructure to fix. This is going
to take more than our managers telling us to fix them. It is going to
take everyone to not just list the problems, but go over them, triage
them and come up with what level of pain they are willing to live with
while it is getting worked on.
Been there, done that, not interested in filling new issues no one
to work on or look at. Already doing too much of that lately.
