after changing my (mtoman) FAS password and SSH key, I'm not able to SSH
retrace01.fedoraproject.org anymore (pubkey, password). Login to
fedorapeople and fedorahosted works correctly. Could you look at the
problem and possibly renew my access?
Could anybody check the problem, please?
It's been 8 weeks since I reported the issue.

my fedoraproject.org account is: tlestach
My Roles are:
* Signed CLA Group (user)
* Fedora CLA Group (user)
* Spacewalk Git Commit Group (administrator)
When I try to upload a tar.gz to fedorahosted.org:spacewalk, I get:
$ scp /tmp/tito/spacewalk-backend-1.3.20.tar.gz fedorahosted.org:spacewalk
Permission denied (publickey).
According to https://fedorahosted.org/web/faq, I shall have just a
fedoraproject account and a CLA, what I have.
I'm sure, my public key is correct, because I'm a member of one of the
Git Commit Groups and I have no trouble with committing, where the
public key get's verified.
Is there something I miss?

Where is the proper place to seek support for BFO (boot.fp.org)? I
didn't really see a component for it in Bugzilla, nor were there any
contact links on the website or in the FAQ.
I know it spawned out of Infrastructure, so also checked Trac -- that
may be the right place but thought I'd ask here first.
I have an issue with my NIC being supported. Probably can resolve
upstream, but who here would need to be pinged to implement any
Awesome work and happy that nothing bad has happened.
One question is should a password length and secure password creation
check be enforced on the FAS system. Like regular expression checks
and stuff. I know this is asking a lot, the current implementation
allows me to have a simple password if I remember(need to check) been
long. And password expiry? :)

As we talked about in the infrastructure meeting (and beyond) yesterday.
I did a full rpm -Va run on every host we maintain.
the results are on puppet1 in /var/tmp/global-rpm-va
some of them are icko
I`d like to introduction myself, my name is John Bassford (irc jbass29503 on
irc.freenode.net#fedora-admin) and was looking to learn the in/outs of how
the fedora infrstucture group works and possible start to assist with small
tasks/projects to assist the fedora project. I have been a sysadmin for
about 13 years
now, working both linux and windows sides.
So please look at the info below which is what was recommended from the
fedora-wiki, and don`t be in shock.
Name: John Bassford
Time Zone/Country: Eastern/US
BasicSkills/Experiences: SystemAdministrator/Engineer, bash,perl, ldap,rpm
packaging, nagios, dns admin, fimilar with puppet
Developerskills: not really, know php, and a little java, but not python
whyJoin: to give back to opensource community, learn new technology and
ways, in general to boarden my horizons
Looking to do: observe and get a feel of the infrastructure group
and possible help with these two open tickets to start with, I think they
are small and something good for someone new to the group
to start with. (tickets 1152 and 1084 if there really is still work to be
done for them, as these active tickets are rather old)
an maybe the Nagios upgrade. (2275)
HowMuchTime: couple hours a day and/or more on a weekend.
I have some hardware to do simulated testing with, a dell server running
vmware esx (freeware) which is what I just installed fedora14 on, but
limited in disk space abou 100GB total local.
