19:01:54 <nirik> #topic New folks introductions and Apprentice tasks
19:02:01 <nirik> any new folks or apprentices with questions or comments?
19:02:24 <kc4zvw_p> My name is David
19:02:39 <nirik> welcome again kc4zvw_p :)
19:03:17 <kc4zvw_p> I have been checking the extent of the websites that Fedora has
19:03:39 <nirik> kc4zvw_p: if you want to work on websites, we have a subteam that
does website work. ;)
19:03:51 <nirik> (if you mean applications we have a number of those we develop
19:04:28 <kc4zvw_p> My own website show that I am a web guy :-)
19:04:41 <kc4zvw_p> am not!
19:05:09 <nirik> :) well, welcome and do ask questions or look around and see where
you can find areas to help in. ;)
19:05:23 * nirik suspects from your nick that you are a ham also. ;)
19:05:30 <kc4zvw_p> yes
19:05:44 <nirik> cool.
19:05:56 <nirik> #topic Applications status / discussion
19:06:09 <nirik> any applications status/news/discussion this week?
19:06:19 <nirik> we are out of freeze now, so things will likely pick up
19:06:56 * lmacken has been doing a bunch of bodhi2 hacking, as well as fixing some bodhi1
19:06:56 <pingou> fedocal 0.2.0 still on its way
19:07:15 <nirik> lmacken: cool. :) Any idea when there might be a dev instance for
people to look at?
19:07:24 <nirik> pingou: any ideas on eta? or when it's ready?
19:07:28 <lmacken> nirik: I'm shooting for flock at the latest
19:07:38 <relrod> Fedora Mobile just got (a slightly hacky version of) package
searching functionality, for anyone following that project.
19:07:48 <lmacken> focusing on the api first, shiny frontend later :)
19:07:54 <nirik> lmacken: awesome.
19:08:09 <nirik> relrod: is the .apk available for install already?
19:08:51 <nirik> relrod: also, I guess once it's more 1.0ey, you should submit
to f-droid. ;)
19:08:51 <relrod> nirik: There's an APK of master HEAD always available at
19:09:07 <relrod> but it's not in a very pretty state right now
19:09:17 <nirik> ah, ok.
19:10:00 <pingou> nirik: when it is ready, but it's getting there
19:10:03 <nirik> so, dunno if folks have seen it, but the anaconda folks have asked
us for a geoip lookup thing...
19:10:10 <pingou> I only have one thing left on the TODO atm
19:10:19 <nirik> https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/3807
19:10:42 <nirik> if anyone has spare cycles to look at moving that forward that
would be lovely. Otherwise, I will try and do so.
19:10:48 * threebean joins in late
19:11:19 <nirik> threebean: any apps news?
19:11:35 <threebean> nirik: lots off local work on badges
19:11:51 <threebean> still nothing quite ready for infra
19:11:54 * pingou gtg
19:11:55 <nirik> yeah, I need to setup instances for those soon... was that stg or
19:12:05 <threebean> oh, stg at first.
19:12:18 <nirik> also, we are going to try and move the gallery instance forward...
19:13:16 <nirik> I think the geoip thing can live on proxies... but I could be
wrong, will have to look more.
19:14:12 <nirik> any other apps news?
19:14:28 <nirik> #topic Sysadmin status / discussion
19:14:33 <nirik> lets see...
19:14:44 <nirik> #info ansible migration continues well
19:14:57 <nirik> we have the new kernel-qa boxes setup in ansible.
19:15:04 <puiterwijk> #info authopenid is now handling /login on our hosted trac
19:15:05 <nirik> we also have a new mirrorlist instance using it.
19:15:17 <nirik> (this will be the split out mirrorlists thing)
19:15:44 <nirik> smooge is heads down in ppc setup right now.
19:16:01 <smooge> something something something
19:16:02 <nirik> our new bladecenter is almost all arrived... one more part
19:16:45 <nirik> our sync of data to new netapp space is slowly moving along.
19:16:57 <nirik> it's done 9.3TB of 13TB
19:17:22 <nirik> I want to look at possibly doing a mass reboot next week
19:17:32 <nirik> to pick up all the updates that came out and the newest kernel
19:17:45 <nirik> #action nirik to schedule mass reboot next week
19:18:07 <nirik> any other sysadmin news?
19:18:28 <nirik> #topic Private Cloud status update / discussion
19:18:34 <nirik> Not much new on the cloud front.
19:18:52 <nirik> Things are going along ok with our current setup, we need to test
the newer versions
19:19:01 <nirik> #topic Upcoming Tasks/Items
19:19:01 <nirik> https://apps.fedoraproject.org/calendar/list/infrastructure/
19:19:08 <nirik> look, a calendar. ;)
19:19:13 <nirik> I even added more things to it.
19:19:23 <nirik> anything anyone would like to schedule or note?
19:19:54 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
19:20:08 <nirik> ok, anything for open floor? Is this thing on? Should I cut back to
19:20:14 <threebean> :P
19:20:40 <nirik> oh, one other thing to note:
19:20:56 <nirik> #info flock proposal deadline is tomorrow. Submit your
talks/hackfests/etc now. ;)
19:21:40 <threebean> hm, on the "composedb" app..
19:21:55 <threebean> nirik: you mentioned it in the automation thread on the infra
19:22:03 <nirik> yeah. dgilmore was the one wanting that. ;)
19:22:06 * threebean nods
19:22:18 * nirik thinks it would make a lot of sense.
19:22:32 <threebean> do you think it would be useful to *just* write a web frontend
for the compose process without going into and rewriting all the cron scripts?
19:22:39 <threebean> s/you/anyone/
19:22:49 <threebean> a simple status dashboard
19:22:54 <nirik> hum. not sure.
19:23:09 <nirik> I guess the information could be of use ro.
19:23:16 <lmacken> I think the 'db' aspect of composedb is important to the
19:23:19 <nirik> and could easily be gathered by datagrepper?
19:23:25 * threebean nods
19:23:50 <nirik> but yeah, thats basically just a prettier status thing... for it to
really be useful it would need to be able to do composes, etc.
19:23:59 * threebean nods
19:24:04 <nirik> I guess check with dgilmore and see what he thinks?
19:24:33 <nirik> one thing that might be good is to write up a requirements doc/wiki
page so we can see if it could be done in parts or anything.
19:24:48 <threebean> agreed -- that would help scope it.
19:25:20 <threebean> architecturally, we should avoid combining background processes
and webapps into one codebase or one "project"
19:25:30 <threebean> I'm kind of in love with mailman3 after learning about it
last week ;)
19:25:33 <nirik> I could try and make a skeleton wiki page and see if dgilmore can
fill it in more/fix it.
19:25:47 <threebean> the mailman3 background process is its own think.. and provides
hooks for different kinds of web interfaces to be attached to it.
19:25:48 <nirik> yeah, I like them being different parts.
19:26:59 <threebean> cool. I'd like to start working on it sometime after flock
(after badges launch).. so, a ways off.
19:27:09 <nirik> awesome
19:27:51 <nirik> I'll see what I can whip up.
19:28:00 <threebean> nirik: awesome, thank you :)
19:28:18 <nirik> any other questions/comments/ideas/things for discussion?
19:29:20 * nirik will close out the meeting early then in a minute. ;)
19:29:57 <threebean> oh - we just hit 500 simultaneous fedmsg users on the proxies
19:30:09 <kc4zvw_p> What is a 'flock' ... an event?
19:30:11 <nirik> oh nice. ;)
19:30:19 <nirik> kc4zvw_p: yep. ;) http://flocktofedora.org
19:30:27 <kc4zvw_p> ok
19:30:42 <nirik> threebean: are we anywhere going to hit into capacity with that
19:31:07 <threebean> nirik: nowhere close to it yet.
19:31:10 <lmacken> threebean: woot
19:31:25 <nirik> good. :) I didn't think so, but just being paranoid.
19:31:34 <nirik> perhaps that deserves a short blog post. ;)
19:31:54 <threebean> oo
19:32:09 <lmacken> I wrote a script to count the number of people on The Bus ;)
19:32:19 <threebean> lmacken: yeah, you wrote it. wanna do the honors?
19:32:39 <lmacken> threebean: go for it if you want :)
19:32:51 * threebean nods
19:33:00 <nirik> you could call it 'ridership' stats. ;)
19:33:23 <threebean> gotta Ride the Bus
19:33:37 <threebean> so good
19:33:44 <nirik> :)
19:34:03 <nirik> ok, thanks for coming everyone. Continue in #fedora-admin /
