Last meeting we discussed whether we should change to GPT as default partitioning. Now some of our members have submitted a change proposal to make GPT the default partitioning for new installations. I think this is actually long overdue, yet better communication among us would actually be nice as well.
I don’t know if there is a potential problem. Some time ago, if I remember correctly it was Neil who wrote in a discussion about storage that a software RAID is no longer possible, because - so my memory - the biosboot partition is not replicable over multiple disks. So if the previous boot disk fails, you can't just boot from another disk.
I never checked it and didn’t read the technical specification. And all our server have hardware raid. So, does anybody knows about it in detail?
I just published the article "Setting up dnsmasq - a lightweight DHCP and DNS server“ (https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora-server/sysadmin-dnsmasq/). Unfortunately, until now nobody had picked it up for review. So it does get under the rule no objection is considered consent, unfortunately.
Nevertheless, it is never too late for a review. It would be great it someone would take it.
it finally happened. Fedora 36 is out of the door, after all the stumbling blocks along the way.
I pushed the latest releases of our documentation upstream, as far as they needed an update for F36. After the docs site updates again, it will be online. Probably in an hour or so.
Nevertheless, I think we should polish our review process.
Just as an info: In cooperation with the docs team and especially thanks to the efforts of darknao, our noticeability is greatly improved.
On the download page
there is now a new footer directly below the download links with links to our documentation, support and chat.
The same is true for the overview page,
down below all the descriptions.
Many thanks to Francois Andrieu (darknao)
In our meeting x3mboy raised the question if we should start to migrate our repo to GitLab as many projects do. We decided to open a discussion on the mailing list.
So, the floor is open.
My opinion: IMHO, pagure does for us what we need at the moment. Therefore, there is no need for us to migrate now. And we have so many task to (see https://pagure.io/fedora-server/boards/Works%20in%20progress) we are well advised to concentrate on those. Not only, that one has to do the work, all others have to adapt there working routine and maybe spend some time to learn the new / different functionality. We should better spend the time into our working projects.
We have still to determine our goals for F37.
One topic we have to care about is an open bug/rfe, we already postponed.
We decided to continue our discussion on mailing list. Among other things, we still disagreed a bit on how to judge z-shell.
I think we should really review server DVD content. It was basically created a decade ago, presumably with various adjustments in the meantime. But we have some unresolved issues about it still open.
