19:01:47 <nirik> methanigai: are you interested in sysadmin or application development/coding?
19:02:35 <methanigai> In Sysadmin . I donot have much knowledge in coding. I have basic knowledge in coding.
19:02:41 * abadger1999 here
19:02:54 <nirik> ok, fair enough. ;) See me in #fedora-admin after the meeting and I can help you get started.

19:04:45 <nirik> so, we go into final freeze next tuesday.
19:04:58 <nirik> #info mdomsch is going to work on landing mirrormanager 1.4 tomorrow
19:05:12 <nirik> are there other items we want to get set before freeze? any releases of applications, etc?
19:06:25 * nirik listens to crickets. ;)
19:06:34 <nirik> pingou: were you going to try and land a new calendar?
19:06:55 <pingou> nirik: I hope so but $dayjob takes some time so not sure I can make it before freeze
19:07:02 <nirik> ok, no worries.
19:07:08 <pingou> tx :)
19:07:26 <nirik> anyhow, if there are things you want to get landed before freeze, the time is now. ;)
19:07:29 <nirik> #topic Applications status / discussion
19:07:36 <nirik> any applications news this week?
19:07:48 <smooge> nirik, mm
19:07:51 <pingou> the main things are in or in p-r, only the port to openid is missing
19:08:21 <nirik> smooge: yep. tomorrow. ;)
19:08:25 <smooge> through a great effort by mdomsch and skvidal, meeting manager is now running on seperate app servers
19:08:39 <smooge> s/meeting/mirror/
19:08:40 <smooge> geez
19:08:51 <nirik> yep. :) Splitting those out is a great thing...
19:09:29 <nirik> I know threebean and oddshocks have been busy working on badges...
19:09:35 <nirik> and we have some badges staging hosts now.
19:10:54 <abadger1999> Do you want to talk about how/if we can do that split for other apps?
19:11:10 <nirik> sure, we can. I think we want to move to doing that...
19:11:15 <abadger1999> <nod>
19:11:35 * oddshocks is here
19:11:38 * oddshocks is late
19:11:38 <nirik> in the case of mirrormanager we put them in other datacenters... for other apps that need db, it's probibly best to put any instances in phx2.
19:12:42 <nirik> welcome oddshocks
19:13:28 <pingou> ah I still want to have a look at the cron job for orphaned packages
19:13:50 <pingou> maybe something for tomorrow morning (prepare the commit and ask for review)
19:14:21 <nirik> sure. ;)
19:14:34 <nirik> oddshocks: you have a badges update for us? or just work ongoing...
19:15:03 <oddshocks> Fixed a few tests this morning, codebase is cleaning up nicely, adding authorization stuff... anddddd
19:15:16 <oddshocks> Fedora cloud node has a demo:
19:15:26 <oddshocks> Remy here in the FOSSBox has been playing around with adding badges, as you can see
19:15:43 <oddshocks> Not really any user functionality yet, but this week will see a lot of cool metrics and stuff added hopefully
19:15:55 <oddshocks> and at that point it'll be more interesting for end users :)
19:16:15 <nirik> excellent.
19:16:21 <oddshocks> (some things are also probably a little broken since there are a lot of back-end changes in progress right now, had to do some database changes)
19:16:24 * nirik looks forward to it.
19:16:37 <oddshocks> But overall things are awesome and we're keeping in-contact with Open Badges people and related projects :)
19:16:41 <nirik> #info badges work ongoing
19:17:26 <nirik> ok, any other application news?
19:17:32 <lmacken> I did a bodhi1 release earlier this week to fix some updateinfo.xml bugs that were confusing yum. hopefully it's all good and we don't need another update before the freeze
19:17:46 <nirik> lmacken: cool.
19:17:57 <lmacken> bodhi2 development is rolling along. working on the json API now.
19:18:04 <nirik> lmacken: oh, did we ever get to the bottom of bodhi fedmsg messages?
19:18:27 <nirik> excellent. ;) Look forward to seeing it.
19:18:35 <lmacken> nirik: hmm? I was n't aware of an issue
19:18:49 <lmacken> did the masher stop sending messages again?
19:19:08 <nirik> yeah.. updates/karma are all fine, it's the masher/pushing process that doesn't I don't think.
19:19:29 <lmacken> hmm… probably the threading issue again. will look into it with bean.
19:20:06 <nirik> ok, sorry for not mentioning it sooner. :(
19:20:24 <lmacken> no worries :) at least it isn't blocking the push
19:20:48 <lmacken> random stat: 340 current fedmsg sessions
19:21:07 <nirik> #info 340 current fedmsg sessions now. :)
19:21:14 <nirik> #topic Sysadmin status / discussion
19:21:17 <nirik> lets see...
19:21:41 <nirik> #info new storage move will happen after f19 release, to be scheduled. Will entail a 24 hour outage for koji most likely.
19:21:53 <smooge> cool

19:23:37 <smooge> nirik turns out I had the serial number.. it got put in the wrong folder. fixing it after this meeting
19:23:48 <smooge> s/year/quarter/
19:23:56 <nirik> smooge: cool. ok. Happily vh10 is a staging machine, so we can replace the drive whenever.
19:24:27 <nirik> #info planning on adding memory to virthosts to increase density and replace two bvirthosts this quarter
19:24:27 * smooge happily learning KDE for a bit and learning ansible for setting up my laptop
19:24:56 <nirik> ok, any other stuff on the sysadmin side?
19:25:00 <smooge> getting an idea of when in July I can go to PHX2
19:25:17 <nirik> yeah, we need to schedule that. :)
19:25:30 <nirik> I have a small list of items for on-site work I have been adding to... can shoot it your way
19:25:46 <smooge> and getting an updated inventory before we get there
19:26:03 <smooge> we still need to decide which one one of us gets the short straw :)
19:26:31 <smooge> I figure it will be whoever can get there cheaper since spot's budget is very very tight this q
19:26:56 <nirik> yeah, although if it's me, it will have to be later in july probibly.
19:27:01 <nirik> but we can sort it out.
