18:01:48 <nirik> #topic New folks introductions and Apprentice tasks
18:02:03 <nirik> any new folks like to give a short introduction of themselves?
18:02:06 <selvakumarm> I am Selva (New Joiner). Basically solution architect profession and specialized in linux administration and perl scripting. Interesting in the same with Nagios in our group. Looking for sponsor !!
18:02:08 * pingou 
18:02:09 <nirik> or apprentices with questions, comments or status?
18:02:28 <nirik> welcome selvakumarm.
18:02:48 <ootbro> I'll save the rest of my questions 'til afterwards  ;)  :P
18:03:09 <nirik> selvakumarm: see me after the meeting in #fedora-admin and we can point you to our apprentice group and tickets to look into...
18:03:16 <nirik> ootbro: fair enough. :)
18:03:19 * randomuser adopts his usual lurking posture
18:03:31 <selvakumarm> sure nirik
18:04:05 <nirik> cool. any other new folks?
18:04:49 <nirik> #topic Applications status / discussion
18:04:58 <pingou> new pkgdb2 in stg:
18:04:58 <nirik> any applications news this week or upcoming?
18:05:02 <pingou> testers welcome :)
18:05:14 <pingou> and there will be a new pkgdb-cli released soon
18:05:29 <pingou> is in prod
18:05:46 <pingou> and already populated with 4901 test results
18:05:53 <nirik> excellent. There was something related to fedmsg's to fix on kerneltest?
18:06:01 <nirik> or did threebean fix that already?
18:06:16 <pingou> I think he fixed 2 SELinux related issue
18:06:49 <pingou> but iirc he still needed some debugging (so I think it wasn't there yet)
18:06:54 <nirik> yeah. ok
18:07:16 <nirik> #info kerneltest is close to ready. Needs just fedmsg notifications sorted out.
18:07:25 <nirik> #info new pkgdb2 in stg.
18:07:26 <lmacken> for anyone looking to write a quick patch, we could add the new kerneltest app to
18:07:37 <nirik> yes indeed.
18:07:38 <pingou> #easyfix :)
18:07:48 <nirik> we also need to add kerneltest* machines to nagios.
18:08:10 <tflink> taskotron-dev is close to being done, stg to follow soon thereafter
18:08:17 <pingou> tflink: cool!
18:08:24 * mirek-hm is here
18:08:45 <nirik> #info taskotron-dev is almost ready to use. stg to follow soon.
18:09:38 * oddshocks is here
18:10:10 <nirik> ok, anything else app wise?
18:10:57 <nirik> #topic Sysadmin status / discussion
18:11:04 <nirik> lets see... on the sysadmin side...
18:11:15 <nirik> #info some more rhel7 instances re-installed this last week.
18:11:48 <nirik> I didn't get too much ansible migration done, but I did get a bunch of cleanup on our ansible playbooks done
18:12:06 <nirik> we now have a master.yml top level playbook that includes all our host/group ones.
18:12:31 <nirik> this is useful if you change something in the base role or fedmsg/base or something that lots of instances use, you can run that with '-t tagname' and it will just apply those changes all round
18:12:56 <nirik> #info fixed httpd logs to rotate as we want in ansible and sync to log02 again
18:13:23 <nirik> I also setup some ansible groups for our hardware, so we can run commands to see firmware versions or whatever over all dells for example
18:14:11 <lanica> Cool
18:14:13 <nirik> smooge: can you think of anything else this week? you were working on the new osuosl machine and it ran into a switch port issue.
18:14:32 <smooge> no I have basically been banging on that
18:14:46 <nirik> yeah, sorry it's been such a pain.
18:14:52 <smooge> meh.. its not PPC
18:15:01 * hammad_ is here
18:15:12 <nirik> oh, speaking of... any word back on that ppc-comm04 box with the broken power supply/fans?
18:15:44 <smooge> I didn't hear anything from IBM.
18:15:50 <nirik> hum. ;(
18:16:05 <smooge> so I will call and start the usual passive aggressive proces
18:16:07 <nirik> oh well, we will keep bugging em.
18:16:08 <nirik> yeah.
18:16:24 <nirik> I'm also in the coming weeks going to try and move stuff off telia01.
18:16:36 <nirik> it's very slow network wise and I am tired of the alerts. ;)
18:16:45 <nirik> which brings us to:
18:16:48 <nirik> #topic nagios/alerts recap
18:17:13 <nirik> .tiny
18:17:13 <zodbot> nirik:
18:17:20 <nirik> been a somewhat quiet week.
18:17:35 <nirik> packages03 has been hitting high memory, not sure why.
18:17:53 <nirik> log02 also has, but thats collectd. Might be the new rhel7 hosts sending it data it can't grok
18:18:16 <smooge> I will be working on log01 on one of the new virthosts
18:18:19 <nirik> serverbeach07 was me reinstalling it and it dropping off the net and needing rescue mode
18:18:33 <smooge> unless someone wants to take that
18:18:35 <nirik> the rest are largely the usual telia network
18:19:30 <nirik> #topic Upcoming Tasks/Items
18:19:30 <nirik>
18:19:51 <nirik> anything upcoming anyone would like to schedule or note?
18:20:04 <pingou> shiny auto-scolling :)
18:20:06 <nirik> smooge and I will be out at phx2 datacenter toward the end of the month
18:20:27 <nirik> also tomorrow is a holiday in the us... so many us folks will not be near their computers.
18:20:42 <pingou> enjoy the day of the movie :)
18:20:47 <nirik> heh
18:20:58 <mirek-hm> I will be on vacation next week, I gave access to copr to Adam Samalik, who co-develop it with me, so he may fix it if there will be some problem.
18:21:02 <nirik> then in early aug, many folks will be heading to flock.
18:21:14 <nirik> mirek-hm: sounds good. are they on irc any?
18:22:00 <mirek-hm> nirik: good point, i will tell him to join fedora-admin and buildsys
18:22:09 <nirik> cool.
18:23:16 <nirik> also, we have our first f21 freeze coming up.
18:23:31 <nirik> amusingly starting when smooge and I are out at the datacenter. Oops.
18:24:09 <nirik> #topic Open Floor
18:24:17 <nirik> anyone have items for open floor? questions, comments?
18:24:45 <smooge> oh well I expect alpha will be a very long stretch
18:24:52 <pingou> there is the transifex question that poped-up on the list
18:24:55 <nirik> yeah, could well be.
18:25:09 <nirik> pingou: yeah, not sure what to do there. ;(
18:25:43 <hammad_> Hello, I am hammad, working on fedora-college. I was not able to attend last weeks meeting. We have almost done (halfway) with the initial prototype for the product. Have a look
18:25:45 <nirik> really in our scope that just means for websites and our apps we are upstream for right?
18:25:55 <nirik> hey hammad_. welcome.
18:25:59 <pingou> nirik: my problem is that I don't know of any real alternative :(
18:26:15 <pingou> nirik: indeed
18:26:20 <pingou> (for the scope)
18:26:40 <nirik> yeah, zanata is free I think... but not packaged, java and jboss and things we have 0 people who are active in
18:26:54 <nirik> hammad_: will take a look at it.
18:27:15 <hammad_> Thanks :)
18:27:33 <kushal> Is there any other gsoc student here?
18:28:19 <nirik> kushal: last week we have a bunch. ;)
18:28:49 <kushal> nirik, yeah, but they are supposed to report each week :(
18:29:08 <kushal> and no one asks for enough input from infra team.
18:29:15 <lalit_> I am currently working bookmarking channel logs in waartaa(my gsoc project)
18:29:19 <lobocode> o/
