we are close to get FreeIPA 4.9.0 release candidate out.
Draft release notes: https://vda.li/drafts/freeipa-4.9.0-release-notes.html
They include difference between 4.8.10 and current git master. Note that
since many things were backported to 4.8 in separate commits that
referenced the same FreeIPA tickets, they appear in the release notes
too even though you might have seen them in release notes for FreeIPA
Currently, in nightly tests
we have 126
successful testsuites and 6 failures, out of which four have known
- test_adtrust_install, test_cert, test_ipahealthcheck_nodns_extca_file
failure already reported in FreeIPA#8533
- test_installation_TestInstallWithCA2 failure already reported in
- test_webui_general failure already reported in FreeIPA#8570
- test_webui_users failure already reported in FreeIPA#8569
The latter two issues will most likely be irrelevant for FreeIPA release
as they track behavior change in Fedora FAS plugin and we simply need to
install that plugin in a confined environment, to avoid overlapping with
our tests. FAS behavior is specific to Fedora/CentOS AAA deployment and
should not be a problem for anything else, it is simply a design choice
in FAS plugin.
This makes us down to two known and two not-yet-investigated failures.
On top of that we have a worrying behavior of the Azure CI with regards
to DNSSEC that waits for investigation.
One major part not exercised in the nightlies is an upgrade code.
My plan is to do FreeIPA 4.9.0 release candidate this week -- I planned
it to do last week but things slipped due to various failures and
load at other projects. I think for a release candidate this state is
