we are now in the infrastructure freeze leading up to the Fedora 19
Alpha release. This is a pre-release freeze.
Anything in the Pre Release freeze box is frozen until 2013-04-16 (or
later if Alpha slips). This means there should be NO puppet changes to
any hosts in there (including global ones) without signoff of the
change from at least 2 folks in sysadmin-main and/or
I came up with a draft of a nagios/nrpe check for datanommer/fedmsg
It queries the datanommer DB and asks for the time since the latest
message in a particular category (i.e., bodhi, buildsys/koji, askbot).
We could configure it to raise a warning if, for example:
- It hasn't seen a buildsys message in the last 30 minutes.
- It hasn't seen a bodhi message in the last 6 hours.
- It hasn't seen a fedoratagger message in the last 2 months.
Since nagios alerts affect lots of people, it should probably be
discussed here or in the infra meeting before being rolled out.
Pierre pointed out in channel that this approach assumes that there *must*
be bodhi activity for such and such amount of time or else something
is wrong. This could be problematic. There are times like the
holidays in December when fewer people are contributing to Fedora, in
which case this plugin could throw false positives. Accordingly, we
would need to set the WARN and CRIT thresholds to be generously long.
Since you want to push Fedocal and Blocker tracking into production,
would you mind to change you login forms, that I don't have to enter my
FAS password into your application dialog boxes? Although I understand
that they are Fedora's application, hosted on Fedora's infrastructure,
etc. , I don't feel comfortable to enter my FAS password into various
applications, which I consider 3rd party from this perspective.
The infrastructure team will be having it's weekly meeting tomorrow,
2013-04-25 at 19:00 UTC in #fedora-meeting on the freenode network.
#topic New folks introductions and Apprentice tasks.
If any new folks want to give a quick one line bio or any apprentices
would like to ask general questions, they can do so in this part of the
meeting. Don't be shy!
#topic Applications status / discussion
Check in on status of our applications: pkgdb, fas, bodhi, koji,
community, voting, tagger, packager, dpsearch, etc.
If there's new releases, bugs we need to work around or things to note.
#topic Sysadmin status / discussion
Here we talk about sysadmin related happenings from the previous week,
or things that are upcoming.

I started a new webapp over the weekend and Seth helped me get it set
up on a cloud node this morning at http://188.8.131.52/
The idea is that you'll be able to click through the user's avatars to
their profile page at, for instance, http://184.108.40.206/pingou.
The charts from their page are embeddable, so we can use it like
gravatar.com. Pierre could embed
http://220.127.116.11/pingou/radar/?style=dark_solarized on his wiki
page or personal site.
It would need lots of cleaning work:
- The charts' data gets swamped out by the mass branch. Some
math.log can help take care of that.
- The 'dots' chart needs a 'widescreen' aspect ratio. Not yet sure
how to do that.
- It would be cool to be able to click on the dots from the dot
chart and be taken to a page listing the actual events of that
- It needs good end-user docs.
- I need to figure out the click through for that front page.
- Packaging and more..
I think its neat but I'm looking for feedback. Is this an idea I should
pursue? Is it something we want?

Hello. I'm kinda new to this all but My name's Ed Holmes.
Skills: I can code in C/C++ and Python
Learn: I'd like to learn in depth how linux works.
To Work on: I'd like to work on how well Fedora works on Macs. Especially newer MacBooks. For example, when it is installed with rEFIt (a mac boot loader), it shows up various options (some bios, some EFI) but only one of the options work.
Okay well i guess thats it. Also, since I've not had much experience of the actual workings of Linux, what language is primarily used? Or used the most?
My name is Robert Beatty, Im currently an ambassador and free media program
member. I am interested if anyone wants to sponsor me in joining
infrastructure. I have a background in computer hardware and software,
TCP/IP etc. Please let me know if anyone can help me out.
