I am new to the fedora infrastructure group. I am going throug few of the links in the site to get a feel of the work. I have submitted my .ssh_rsa_key.pub from the site. I think I will get some intimation on this. Please someone can let me know further proceedings from here onwards.

AFAIK the build hosts are RHEL5 (or maybe F10 by now?). At any rate
the rpm used in rawhide is quite different than the ones from the
hosts, how has this been solved in the build hosts? Has the hosting OS
upgraded its rpm to be compatible to all hosted chroots? Or is the rpm
within the chroot used?
I'm asking in a double context: First I'd like to understand if smart
can properly handle chroots of rawhide/F11 on F10/RHEL5 hosts. Anders
Björklund (in the Cc, please keep him there on replies) has put a
great deal of effort to have smart working on F10 and F11, and a smart
version for managing F11 and later chroots on F10 or earlier would be
And second I'd like to know how to setup a build environment for F11
for getting some ATrpms packages out.

I've been lurking on the mailing list for a while and I finally
registered for my fedora account today (username: chrisj)
I'm interested in helping out as time permits. I got on irc once
(lurking again) and haven't really logged in since. I'll try to make a
few meetings after the holidays
I'm planning to get my personal test systems setup soon. I just moved
and still getting things straight at home. Bought a 750GB drive last
night and will be installing F10 over the weekend. I had been running
the U... distro and it's time to get back to the fedora/RH rpm way of
doing things :-)
I've used RedHat since before Fedora existed (I think 6 was the first
one). Started as a hobbyist, 2 years. Then got a job as an admin and
have been doing Linux admin and Cisco networks for the last 5 years.
My current employer is a Win shop so I just get to run the DNS,
email, and network, but the network is 50 remote offices and 3
different data centers in the midwest. I don't mind the Windows too
much and can find my way around them, it's also kinda fun to get the
Linux and MS products to play nice together. I've worked with a lot of
different linux and OSS software products including: postfix,
openldap, apache, bind, samba, mailman, pam, built some custom rpm's,
etc. I use RHEL mostly at work and some fedora and Cent for testing
(some suse, deb, and slackware in the past). I used to do lots of
security firewall apliances with various linux distros (I was a big
fan of LRP when it would fit on a floppy), most of this is now done
with Cisco in my world. I can shell script pretty well and I've
written several perl scripts in the last few years (dabbled in php but
not enough to know it well). I've always been interested in python but
don't have much if any exp with it. I also don't have much experience
with SQL/DB or source control.
I was looking at the FIGs and would be interested in the base sysadmin
and sysadmin-noc for now while I figure out where everything is and
what it does. I'm also interested in more info on the sysadmin-tools
and sysadmin-web FIG.
So, next just apply for the FIGs, keep lurking, ask some questions,
show up for IRC meetings?
So doing a liitle looking around I cane across some options that look
interesting, the following options would mean you need to physically have
something to login.
It would require a pam module and for us to setup a server for managing keys.
it looks to be fairly low cost. it would implement a 2 facter
it moves the public key from your hard drive to something you physically need
ubikey is max USD$25 where the etoken is probably at least USD$30. I would
think that with yubikey we could work out a deal with them to get a discount
in return for us being a case study/prominent user of there product. all of
the software for yubikey AFAICT is open source. some of it would require
The other mail was getting too long.
I am writing this as I think I have found the solution. (by using
zicula and phpical together)
So I want to understand the required functionalities.
What I have got so far:
1. Having a calender. ;)
2. Updating and Syncing from different clients using caldev protocol.
3. Having a web-interface to view/update/sync the calenders.

As you may know, the Fedora QA plans and tracks test execution against
Fedora milestones using the wiki. While the wiki has proven quite
valuable for content-driven test documentation (e.g. test plans and test
cases), recording test results has it's drawbacks.
First, in our current implementation, it relies on careful mediawiki
table edits. The table edits are too easy to mess up and aren't
tremendously inviting to new contributors.
Second, the wiki-based implementation lacks ability to sort, query and
organize test results. We can use categories for organizing plans and
cases, but this mechanism isn't suitable for results.
As a long-term solution, we'd be looking to a web application. However,
in the short term (now to F12) with limited resources, we're interested
in what off-the-shelf components we can use to help provide a better QA
One solution that fits nicely with the current mediawiki setup is the
semantic extension to mediawiki. The laptop.org testers are using this
currently and were kind enough to share their findings
(https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-test-list/2009-February/msg00756.html). One important note from the laptop.org folks was that enabling the semantic mediawiki extension could introduce a performance impact to the wiki.
I'm in the process of setting up a private mediawiki+semantic instance
as a proof of concept. But a few questions for the infrastructure
* I'm curious if others in fedora-infrastructure@ have experience
with the semantic extension?
* Is there a defined process for reviewing mediawiki extensions
for the fedoraproject wiki?
* Should the semantic performance impact be significant, is
hosting a separate Fedora QA mediawiki (with semantic enabled) a

Hello, my name is Ferino Mardo but you can call me Rino. I am a
network professional having been in the industry for more than 18
years. I used to be a coder (from assembler to C) but now working as a
network manager. I don't consider myself a newbie though I also don't
call myself a h4ck3r :-) but I do know my way around computers and the
I have time available and want to contribute it to this dynamic team.
i used to do shell scripts but that part is now rusted because my
company now is using closed source softwares. As the nature of things
outside of the US, we techies don't have any specialization to speak
of. If you know a little sql command, bang!, you're the dba. but i do
know my dns (also rusty), firewalls (closed source too), WAN
management, UTP network cabling (handmade), install and maintain
server OS, do patches, and other things as needed to do the job.
Lookin at the FIG, I'm not sure which to join I hope someone can
suggest a starting point?
Am looking forward to contribute and hope to "see" you soon!
