Text Blame History Raw

Board minutes, 2014-10-28


  • Need to talk with Matt Domsch about MirrorManager 3 features and developments.
  • Work on bootstrapping Chinese community.
  • KB & Karsten still need to speak with Patrick McBride about Azure solution.
  • Board needs to help generate a list of who RH might want to hire.

Things on our mind:

Metrics & Bitergia - for example http://www.ovirt.org/stats/

Monthly builds - Q&A

  • Script in RDU2 that will build automatically on the 29th for Docker, cloud images, ISOs.
  • Generic cloud, raw cloud, Docker container, Vagrant image, and ISOs
  • Need to get these in the QA harness.
  • Currently need to be tested by hand.
  • ISO has all the updates smashed into base, latest versions of RPMs.
  • No ISO for 5 & 6.
  • Cloud images are yum updated.
  • Docker needs to build a new image, as it would otherwise overlay.
  • Expose tests so others can verify the images; we trust our own tests but you shouldn’t.
  • Reduce good enough to as many automated tests as possible.
  • Live CDs?
  • Heavily promote the idea that ‘yum update’ should be frequent, unless you have a specific reason not to. Run a cloud image that is a snapshot in time.

State of cloud

  • EC2 - Thor Nolen has sorted out a few things, figured out how to get us interfacing with the right set of people inside of Amazon. We are now a proper Amazon partner. CentOS governance is recognized as legal entity by Amazon Legal.
  • Bootstrapping AWS China with Windows & CentOS. How do we get a community in China?
  • Need to make sure EC2 images have Chinese language included.
  • http://gbraad.nl/
  • AliBaba?
  • Existing Chinese translator of CentOS wiki - Timothy Lee
  • CERN
  • Want Juno on EL6.
  • Use this as a reason to open source RDO tools so that CERN can repackage for EL7.
  • Make this a Cloud SIG code asset.
  • Then CERN can help with the code.
