20:04:07 <nirik> any new folks like to introduce themselves or any apprentices like to talk about pending tickets?
20:04:17 <vincent_vdk> yes, i'm
20:04:32 <vincent_vdk> my name is Vincent Van der Kussen
20:04:40 <nirik> welcome vincent_vdk
20:04:53 <vincent_vdk> i already send my "bio" to the mailinglist
20:05:10 <ctria> .ticket 2899
20:05:12 <zodbot> ctria: #2899 (Add some nagios checks to and – Fedora Infrastructure -
20:05:22 <vincent_vdk> don't know what the next steps are
20:05:23 <ctria> is it ok for me to work on this?
20:05:39 <vincent_vdk> nirik: thanks
20:05:50 <nirik> vincent_vdk: are you more interested in sysadmin type things? or development work?
20:06:06 <nirik> ctria: yep. I've added some folks there who might be able to help us figure out whats needed.
20:06:13 <vincent_vdk> nirik: more sysadmin like things
20:06:34 <nirik> vincent_vdk: cool. See me after the meeting and I can get you added to the apprentice group and point you at some resources.
20:06:48 <vincent_vdk> nirik: ok thanks
20:07:02 <nirik> excellent. Anyone else? or shall we move on?
20:07:33 <nirik> #topic two factor auth status
20:07:39 <nirik> skvidal: you had news on this?
20:07:44 <skvidal> yah
20:07:55 <skvidal> mricon from and I have been talking a bunch
20:08:12 <skvidal> he worked on the cgi for totp auth and I have been patching pam_url to make it work as needed
20:08:17 <skvidal> there is a cgi up on github
20:08:24 <skvidal> and we're making progress on the setup stuff
20:08:36 <skvidal>
20:08:46 <skvidal> right now it is getting all the bugs out of pam_url
20:08:47 <nirik> do we need to package up pam_url?
20:08:51 <skvidal> we will
20:09:00 <skvidal> once I get bressers's team to give it a look over
20:09:04 <skvidal> there are lots of 'odd' things
20:09:08 <skvidal> we want to make sure are sane
20:09:18 <skvidal> however pam_url doesn't drop privs like pam_otp did
20:09:23 <skvidal> so it will allow otp for logins
20:09:26 <skvidal> which is nice
20:09:51 <nirik> ok, sounds good.
20:09:51 <skvidal> anyway  it's moving along now
20:10:04 <skvidal> that's all I had for a report
20:10:12 <nirik> excellent. thanks for keeping it moving.
20:10:36 <nirik> #topic Staging re-work status
20:10:53 <nirik> haven't done much on this, but I intend to start looking at it more early next week...
20:11:12 <nirik> I'd like to get it all moved before too long.
20:11:24 <nirik> #topic Applications status / discussion
20:11:45 <nirik> lmacken / abadger1999 / pingou / threebean: any exciting app news?
20:12:20 <abadger1999> pingou has been hard at work making mizmo's mockups of a new mailman archive interface into reality :-)
20:12:27 <lmacken> nirik: packages is almost fully deployed to production. I've since gotten distracted by this python hash randomization issue, which hopefully we'll have fixed for all of our apps "very soon".
20:12:39 <abadger1999> You can see them here:
20:12:48 <lmacken> whoa, nice
20:13:02 <nirik> lmacken: yeah, I see icons are sometimes wacky there... and tagger needs to be deployed. Has gluster been fine so far?
20:13:02 <abadger1999> Not backed by actual data yet, but I'm getting the archiver hooked up.
20:13:18 <abadger1999> So we should be in good shape to demo something for pycon.
20:13:24 <lmacken> nirik: yeah, gluster has been completely transparent to my so far... no issues.
20:13:25 <pingou> abadger1999: do you think you'll have enough for pycon ?
20:13:27 <skvidal> abadger1999: WOAH
20:13:29 <pingou> nice :)
20:13:29 <lmacken> s/my/me
20:13:30 <smooge> that is nice
20:13:31 <nirik> nice work pingou and abadger1999 !
20:13:32 <skvidal> abadger1999: that is COOL
20:13:47 <abadger1999> All credit for the interface goes to pingou and mizmo :-)
20:13:57 <abadger1999> They're rockstars.
20:13:58 <pingou> notes that you can click on the tag and categories ;)
20:14:18 <pingou> I got some help from trashy (irc nick) for the css
20:14:27 <nirik> lmacken: good to hear. After everything is working there, I'd like to do some testing where we halt one of the nodes and make sure everything is transparent on the storage side.
20:14:35 <smooge> yeah.. I need a "report abuse" so I can click on systemd
20:14:42 <lmacken> nirik: cool
20:14:58 <skvidal> abadger1999: but what's backending that?
20:15:03 <skvidal> abadger1999: what's populating that data?
20:15:10 <abadger1999> skvidal: currently nothing -- it's false data
20:15:24 <abadger1999> skvidal: I've got mailman talking to notmuch to archive
20:15:30 <abadger1999> but it's not tied into the frontend yet.
20:15:35 <skvidal> abadger1999: ah okay
20:15:41 <abadger1999> That's the piece I need to complete before pycon
20:15:45 <skvidal> cool
20:15:50 <nirik> lmacken: also, we might want to redo the dev instance... rebuild it as packages-dev or something more clear... but we can deal with that down the road.
20:16:02 <lmacken> nirik: yep, sounds good.
20:16:30 <nirik> lmacken: any news on getting old community working on el6? or haven't gotten to it yet?
20:16:58 <lmacken> nirik: haven't gotten a chance to look at it yet. I'll work on packages/tagger/community deployments tomorrow, after I wrap up this mod_wsgi patch
20:17:09 <nirik> ok.
20:17:25 <nirik> any other app news anyone can think of?
20:17:56 <smooge> not at the moment
20:17:59 <nirik> ok, moving along...

20:18:31 <nirik> any upcoming items folks would like to talk about or schedule?
20:20:08 <nirik> oh, one other thing I was going to mention back in applications...
20:20:30 <nirik> we have a devel version of dpsearch setup and crawling data.
20:20:33 <nirik>
20:20:44 <nirik> it's only crawling docs so far... but wiki is next
20:20:52 <nirik> feedback welcome on it.
20:21:10 <CodeBlock> Yeah. If anyone wants to help with that or has questions (or knows a lot about search crawlers, because I don't :P), poke me :)
20:21:25 <nirik> CodeBlock: has it finished docs yet?
20:21:26 <pingou> searches for features needs to be tuned :)
20:21:45 <CodeBlock> nirik: not yet, it's still going. Can probably bump up threads a bit more still
20:22:10 <nirik> yeah, seems fine to me to crank it up more.
20:22:41 <nirik> anyhow, hopefully it will work out and be useful.
20:22:46 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
20:22:51 <nirik> ok, anything for open floor?
20:23:54 <nirik> ok, lets go continue in #fedora-admin / #fedora-apps / #fedora-noc. ;)
20:23:58 <nirik> Thanks for coming everyone.
