FH-Projects-Cleanup Infrastructure SOP
This wiki page will help any sysadmin having a Fedora Hosted Project completely removed either because the owner requested to have it removed or for whatever any other issue that would take us to remove a project. This page covers git, Trac, Mailing List and FAS group clean-up.
Our first move
If you are going to remove a Fedora Hosted's project, please remember to create a folder into /srv/tmp that should follow the following syntax:
cd /srv/tmp && mkdir $project-hold-until-xx-xx-xx
where xx-xx-xx should be substituted with the date everything should be purged away from there. (it happens 14 days after the delete request)
Removing Project's git repo
Having a git repository removed can be achieved with the following steps:
ssh firstname.lastname@example.org cd /git mv $project.git/ /srv/tmp/$project-hold-until-xx-xx-xx/
We're done with git!
Removing Trac's project
ssh email@example.com cd /srv/web/trac/projects mv $project/ /srv/tmp/$project-hold-until-xx-xx-xx/
Removing Project's ML
We have two options here:
Delete a list, but keep the archives
sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/rmlist <listname>
Delete a list and its archives
sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/rmlist -a <listname>
If you are going to completely remove the Mailing List and its archives, please make sure the list is empty and there are no subscribers in it.
