Description

Each release of Fedora is maintained as laid out in the maintenance schedule. At the conclusion of the maintenance period, a Fedora release enters end of life status. This procedure describes the tasks necessary to move a release to that status.

Actions

Set date

  • FESCo responsibilities:
    • Follow guidelines of maintenance schedule
    • Take into account any infrastructure or other supporting project resource contention
    • Announce the closure of the release to the package maintainers.

Reminder announcement

  • from FESCo chair to f-devel-announce, f-announce-l, including
    • date of last update push (if needed)
    • date of actual EOL

Koji tasks

  • Purge from disk the signed copies of rpms that are signed with the EOL'd release key

Bodhi tasks

In puppet, set the push scripts to not push the old release:

diff --git a/configs/system/fedora-updates-push
b/configs/system/fedora-updates-push

PackageDB

Set the release to be End of Life in the PackageDB. Currently, that's done with the following db query:

update collection set statuscode = 9 where name = 'Fedora' and version = '11'; 


Source Control (CVS)

  • Branches for new packages in CVS are not allowed for distribution X after the Fedora X+2 release. New builds are no longer allowed for EOL Fedora releases.

Bugzappers Tasks

Docs tasks

  • any?

Final announcement

  • from FPL to f-announce-l
    • on EOL date if at all possible
    • link to previous reminder announcement

Consider Before Running

  • Resource contention in infrastructure, such as outages
  • Extenuating circumstances for specific planned updates, if any
