Intro

This is a collaborative list of current and future work for the Fedora Cloud SIG. It's meant to describe what's needed or wanted, and what is being done. (It isn't an assignment sheet or list of demands, although it would be lovely if people are interested in taking responsibility for certain areas.)

Work Areas

Base Image

ongoing maintenance of kickstart

  • What: The definition of the cloud image needs ongoing work
  • Where: kickstart file is at https://fedorahosted.org/spin-kickstarts/
  • Why: Because this is our base product
  • When: As package sets change and new Fedora releases come out
  • Who: Someone in cloud working group in collaboration with rel-eng and spins sig

port to anaconda/oz/imagefactory

  • What: The current kickstart file is full of kludges for appliance-creator. Port to anaconda/imagefactory kludges
  • Where: same as ongoing maintenance of kickstart
  • Why: appliance-creator is being retired; anaconda-based installs are the way forward
  • When: As soon as this is available in Koji. Need a new ImageFactory release, then patches into Koji for support, then a new Koji release, then Koji needs to be updated in Fedora production
  • Who: Ian McLeod is working on ImageFactory; Jay Greguske on the Koji patches, Mike McLean is Koji maintainer, Dennis Gilmore in release engineering will do the Koji update. Need to work with them to get this in place, and then someone from cloud wg needs to do the updating.

automation in rel-eng

produce scratch builds on change

  • What:
  • Where:
  • Why:
  • When:
  • Who:

upload to ec2 and ftp

  • What:
  • Where:
  • Why:
  • When:
  • Who:

Quality Assurance

Write Initial QA Documents

  • What: Work out and write down structured test plans and test cases and, if additional are necessary, release criteria / requirements.
  • Where: Fedora Wiki
  • Why: So testers know how to test, and QA overlords and rel-eng know when the images are actually ready for release. Or maybe rather, when they're not.
  • When: Before the very first alpha release candidate (RC) of Fedora 21 is due.
  • Who: Someone in cloud working group in collaboration with QA.

Ongoing QA Documentation Work

  • What: Keep above documents up to date, extend and add new documents where necessary.
  • Where: Fedora Wiki
  • Why: As requirements, processes or tools might change, documents need to change too. Also, some documents need to be copied (and maybe slightly changed) before every round of testing.
  • When: Between releasing a new release and the next release's first alpha release candidate's due date.
  • Who: Someone in cloud working group or QA.

Ongoing QA Testing Work

  • What: Perform the actual testing according to the test plans and test cases from above. For every single release and re-release.
  • Where: Fedora Wiki, IRC (#fedora-qa and #fedora-cloud), Bugzilla, Mailing Lists (Cloud SIG and QA), etc.
  • Why: Because bugs happen, because no-one and nothing is perfect. Because we want our users to have a as flawless experience as possible. And because the automated testing is not yet implemented (and some things might not be fully automatable).
  • When: From the first alpha release candidate until the final release of each and every release, at least until tests are fully automated.
  • Who: As many people with as many different environments as possible. Primarily cloud working group and possibly QA people, probably.

Fedora Cloud Guide

How to Contribute to the Cloud Guide

Any form of participation is welcome. You can ask for a particular tool or process to be covered, suggest improvements, critique, point out flaws or outdated content, or write content directly.

Fedora Guides are written in docbook and published using Publican. There is a slight learning curve, but don't let that dissuade you! Even if you don't want to hack on the guide directly, your feedback and guidance is valuable. Your expertise can help writers with less cloud knowledge to put together a good guide.
