This post to rel-eng@ will also be of interest to folks working on
infrastructure and applications in Fedora.

I would like to become a Fedora Infrastructure Apprentice.
My name is Taehwan Kim aspiring a python developer that want to work and
contribute to open source community such as fedora.
First of all, I have looked up Fedora apps several times, but I can't
figure out where to start exactly.
I am interested in project that python developer can participate to
contribute and learn from.
what about bohdi or badge? (I found those project uses python and
pyramid web framework)
The infrastructure team will be having it's weekly meeting tomorrow,
2015-02-19 at 18:00 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.
#topic nagios/alerts recap
Here we go over the last weeks alerts and see if we can find ways to
make it so they don't happen again.
#topic Upcoming Tasks/Items
#topic Open Floor
Submit your agenda items, as tickets in the trac instance and send a
note replying to this thread.

The subject has popped-up on the devel list this week again and I thought it
might be an idea to discuss it further.
Fresque  is the Fedora Review Server. Its aim is to get the package review off
bugzilla into its own dedicated application that will integrate directly with
git and fedora-review.
Aurélien has been the main developer on this application in fall while Stanislav
and I presented the idea at flock last year .
However, Stanislav has changed team and both Aurélien and I have been working on
So an idea is that we could have someone working on fresque this summer.
As far as I can see, there are two options for this:
a) we could get a GSoC student
b) as far as I understood, the fedora engineering team will have an engineering
intern this summer
Any thoughts on the idea of having someone working on it?
Any preferences on whether GSoC or RH intern?
One constraint is that, if we want/consider trying to get a GSoC student we need
to update the wiki  with the project before tomorrow.
One release aways keeps the doctor away (and Vít busy :)), so here is the new
* Thu Feb 19 2015 Pierre-Yves Chibon <pingou(a)pingoured.fr> - 1.23.993-1
- Update to 1.23.993 (pre-release of 1.24)
- Drop the package name from the URL to edit a request (fix few bugs in the
- If requested is a package admin, request is set to Awaiting Review
- Use secure=True against prod pkgdb in set_monitoring_status.py (Ralph Bean)
Hopefully this fixes all/most of the bugs Vít faced.
I have just released and pushed to staging a new release of pkgdb2: 1.23.992,
the third pre-release of 1.24
Here is the changelog:
* Wed Feb 18 2015 Pierre-Yves Chibon <pingou(a)pingoured.fr> - 1.23.992-1
- Update to 1.23.992 (pre-release for 1.24)
- Add a `My Request` tab in the main menu
- Adjust copyright year in the master template
- Monitor package set as True by default (Ralph Bean)
- Drop the branch from field when requesting branch for a package
- Add the possibility to Edit one's request directly via the `My Requests` page
- Increase the width of the field in the form to request a new package
This should address some of the concerns raised by Vít (Thanks!) :)
Feedback much appreciated :)

for everyone to see and comment on.
At the first of every month(or so), I am going to be sending out an
email like this one. I would like feedback on how things are going for
I'd like to ask for everyone to send me a quick reply with the

our machines/setup in the last month? Do you plan to?
2. Has it helped you decide any area you wish to focus on or contribute
3. Have you looked at or been able to work on any of the fi-apprentice
4. Do you still wish to be a member of the group? If not (for whatever
reason) could you provide any hints to help others down the road?

Any other general feedback is also quite welcome, including

Any folks I do not hear from in the next week will be removed from the
