Meeting summary

  1. TOPIC:Roll Call (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:00:41)
  2. TOPIC:Previous meeting follow-up (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:12:10)
    1. INFO: "adamw to email marian about LVM bugs" - I did that, and it looks like Peter Boy got some further information about why things are the way they are and is working on a plan to deal with them (this is about https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2247872 as it affects Server on ARM) (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:13:14)
    2. INFO: further to above: Peter Boy is trying to work on required changes but needs some information from the ARM team (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:19:50)
    3. INFO: "adamw to try and talk to mcsontos about https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2258764" - I think this was a clarification of the first action item, actually, so the result is the same: we've got a bit further along but still trying to work on it (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:22:26)
    4. INFO: "adamw and kparal to come up with a plan to start directing 'official' messages to discourse as well as mailing lists (and possibly having the mailing list versions encourage use of discourse?)" - well, I didn't write anything down in any SOPs or anything, but I have been sending meeting announcements to discourse as well as mailing lists for the last couple of weeks (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:23:13)
  3. TOPIC:Fedora 40 status, including anaconda web UI test planning (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:32:15)
    1. INFO: the "web UI" new interface for anaconda (the installer) that is used on Workstation live images in Fedora 40 changed its backend for custom partitioning from blivet-gui (the same tool you can launch from the "gtk UI" current installer interface, as "Advanced Custom") to cockpit's storage backend (which has never been used in an installer context before). this landed in the anaconda package on 2023-02-07 and in a successful compose on 2023-02-10, so it is rather late (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:33:59)
    2. INFO: there are a few places this is being discussed, including https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2263964 and https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/3169 . We have a ticket for updating the criteria and test cases at https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/issue/763 and a ticket for atest day at https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/issue/764 (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:35:16)
    3. INFO: the "web UI" new interface for anaconda (the installer) that is used on Workstation live images in Fedora 40 changed its backend for custom partitioning from blivet-gui (the same tool you can launch from the "gtk UI" current installer interface, as "Advanced Custom") to cockpit's storage backend (which has never been used in an installer context before). this landed in the anaconda package on 2024-02-07 and in a successful compose on 2024-02-10, so it is rather late (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:35:28)
    4. INFO: please test the new UI if you can, file any bugs you hit, and mark them as blocking bug 2231339 (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:50:00)
  4. TOPIC:Test Day / community event status (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:55:12)
    1. INFO: the anaconda webui storage Test Week will be coming soon, tentative start date 2024-02-22 - follow https://pagure.io/fedora-qa/issue/764 for that (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:56:04)
    2. INFO: The KDE Plasma 6 happened https://testdays.fedoraproject.org/events/174 .. good amount of test runs :) (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:56:59)
    3. INFO: GNOME 46 Desktop and Core Apps happening now https://testdays.fedoraproject.org/events/175 (@adamwill:fedora.im, 16:57:06)
