I am Zamir SUN from China(UTC+8). I have subscribed the list for some
time and now I decide to involve in.
My FAS is zsun as well as for my IRC nickname.
Now I am a student mainly focus on Linux. I have been helping the
datacentern of our university with Apache httpd and tomcat. So I want to
help with sysadmin-web FIG and to learn more about sysadmin skills.
Unfortunately, it is 3:00am UTC+8 for infra weekly meeting here, so it
is hard for me to attend meetings regularly.

Small ansible question: I have this ansible playbook which uploads and runs
a script to set some permissions in the database. This worked fine while
the playbook was only executed on a single server, but now that mailman01
and 02 are being setup for prod, the script is executed on both machines,
and tries to set the permissions in the same DB server at the same time,
which produces a psycopg2.InternalError (tuple concurrently updated).
Any idea how I can ask Ansible to not run this task in parallel on both
servers? Any other way around this?
The infrastructure team will be having it's weekly meeting tomorrow,
2014-02-06 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

meeting. Don't be shy!

I am Sean O'Reilly, my IRC handle is Henrycoffin.
I have been working with Linux for 15+ years as a systems administrator/
operations engineer. I am a certified RHCE on RHEL 6 and have experience
with many other flavours of Linux.
I would like to help out in any way I can really and am interested in
improving my development skills along the way if possible!
I don't think we had a formal discussion about this. We've noticed
questions with [solved] in the summary recently.
There are two scenarios when this is being used:
- the question was answered properly, and the answer did actually help
- the person did something like a reinstall, and the question isn't
pertinent any more (the poster doesn't need it anymore, so he just adds
[solved] and moves on.)
We can always close questions with the "answer was accepted" solution,
but I'm not for using that. More answers can always be given, and
answers can always be improved.
Here's the first proposal:
- Add "Please do not add the [Solved] keyword to your question
summaries. If you received an answer that solved the issue, please mark
the answer as correct and reward the helper with karma." to the user
Now, the addition of the term "solved" somewhere in the question does
help in a way: it helps improve search results, say google/bing/whatever
(This is based on my basic understanding of SEO etc, please correct me
if I'm mistaken). So, an additional proposal:
- Mods add a "solved" tag to questions that they feel are properly
answered, and the answer was accepted, just to ensure that search
engines associate the term with the question.
This will ensure that the second case mentioned earlier doesn't occur
and improve search results too.

Now, I do see that stack exchange doesn't do this sort of thing at all,
so proposal 2 might not be required at all.
Also, since we're now using instances for languages, shouldn't we have a
set of guildelines for moderators, if we don't already? To ensure that
everyone follows the same system etc.? I still need to talk to the
Spanish mods about the use of the "user group" functionality. Should I
ask them to join the infra ML, or is there a simpler way of speaking to
all mods? Considering that we do all our discussion here, maybe they
should be required to join the infra list? I think a separate ML for
mods would be overkill.
