[edit] Description

This SOP specifies exactly what builds, signatures, checksums etc release engineering must deliver when building Fedora release composes.

[edit] Action

[edit] Alpha

Each Alpha test compose should contain the following:

  • A directory tree with two top-level directories named 'Fedora' and 'Live', each of which should contain a sub-directory named after each primary architecture. Within the 'Fedora' top-level directory, each architecture directory should contain two sub-directories, 'iso' and 'os'.
  • A DVD install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Alpha-TC(number)-(arch)-DVD.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Alpha-TC1-x86_64-DVD.iso). The images ought not to exceed 4,590,208 KiB in size, but this is not strictly mandatory at this point. These images should be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directory.
  • A network install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Alpha-TC(number)-(arch)-netinst.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Alpha-TC1-x86_64-netinst.iso). The images ought not to exceed 666,000 KiB in size, but this is not strictly mandatory at this point. These images should be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directories.
  • Live booting images, in the ISO 9660 format, for each of the Desktop (GNOME), KDE, XFCE and LXDE spins, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Alpha-TC(number)-(arch)-Live-(spinname).iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Alpha-TC1-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso). The images ought not to exceed 720,000 KiB in size, but this is not strictly mandatory at this point. These images should be located in the /Live/(arch) directory.
  • A single file in each directory in the tree which contains any of the above images, named according to the same formula as the images, but with the final element and the .iso extension replaced by the word CHECKSUM. For example, Fedora-17-Alpha-TC1-x86_64-CHECKSUM and Fedora-17-Alpha-TC1-x86_64-Live-CHECKSUM. This file is to contain a checksum in the sha256sum format for each image file in the same directory, each on a new line, each followed by a space, then an asterisk (*), then the filename of the image. It may contain any number of other lines that begin with a # (denoting comments), and any number of blank lines, but it may not contain anything else.

All image files for PC architectures should be prepared for writing to USB directly with 'dd' or similar tools, and should be prepared for both EFI and BIOS booting whether written to an optical disc or a USB disk.

Each Alpha release candidate must contain the following:

  • A directory tree with two top-level directories named 'Fedora' and 'Live', each of which should contain a sub-directory named after each primary architecture. Within the 'Fedora' top-level directory, each architecture directory must contain two sub-directories, 'iso' and 'os'.
  • A DVD install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Alpha-(arch)-DVD.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Alpha-x86_64-DVD.iso). The images ought not to exceed 4,590,208 KiB in size, but this is not strictly mandatory at this point. These images must be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directory.
  • A network install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Alpha-(arch)-netinst.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Alpha-x86_64-netinst.iso). The images ought not to exceed 666,000 KiB in size, but this is not strictly mandatory at this point. These images must be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directories.
  • Live booting images, in the ISO 9660 format, for each of the Desktop (GNOME), KDE, XFCE and LXDE spins, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Alpha-(arch)-Live-(spinname).iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Alpha-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso). The images ought not to exceed 720,000 KiB in size, but this is not strictly mandatory at this point. These images must be located in the /Live/(arch) directory.
  • A single file in each directory in the tree which contains any of the above images, named according to the same formula as the images, but with the final element and the .iso extension replaced by the word CHECKSUM. For example, Fedora-17-Alpha-x86_64-CHECKSUM and Fedora-17-Alpha-x86_64-Live-CHECKSUM. This file is to contain a checksum in the sha256sum format for each image file in the same directory, each on a new line, each followed by a space, then an asterisk (*), then the filename of the image. It may contain any number of other lines that begin with a # (denoting comments), and any number of blank lines, but it may not contain anything else.

All image files for PC architectures must be prepared for writing to USB directly with 'dd' or similar tools, and must be prepared for both EFI and BIOS booting whether written to an optical disc or a USB disk.

Once an Alpha release candidate is declared gold, the following must be generated:

  • A torrent file, compliant with BEP-0003, for each of the images described above except the network install images. Each torrent file must be named identically to the image file except that it must have the extension .torrent instead of .iso.

[edit] Beta

Each Beta test compose should contain the following:

  • A directory tree with two top-level directories named 'Fedora' and 'Live', each of which should contain a sub-directory named after each primary architecture. Within the 'Fedora' top-level directory, each architecture directory should contain two sub-directories, 'iso' and 'os'.
  • A DVD install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Beta-TC(number)-(arch)-DVD.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Beta-TC1-x86_64-DVD.iso). The images should not exceed 4,590,208 KiB in size. These images should be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directory.
  • A network install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Beta-TC(number)-(arch)-netinst.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Beta-TC1-x86_64-netinst.iso). The images should not exceed 666,000 KiB in size. These images should be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directories.
  • Live booting images, in the ISO 9660 format, for each of the Desktop (GNOME), KDE, XFCE, LXDE and SoaS (Sugar) spins, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Beta-TC(number)-(arch)-Live-(spinname).iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Beta-TC1-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso). The images should not exceed 720,000 KiB in size. These images should be located in the /Live/(arch) directory.
  • A single file in each directory in the tree which contains any of the above images, named according to the same formula as the images, but with the final element and the .iso extension replaced by the word CHECKSUM. For example, Fedora-17-Beta-TC1-x86_64-CHECKSUM and Fedora-17-Beta-TC1-x86_64-Live-CHECKSUM. This file is to contain a checksum in the sha256sum format for each image file in the same directory, each on a new line, each followed by a space, then an asterisk (*), then the filename of the image. It may contain any number of other lines that begin with a # (denoting comments), and any number of blank lines, but it may not contain anything else.

All image files for PC architectures should be prepared for writing to USB directly with 'dd' or similar tools, and should be prepared for both EFI and BIOS booting whether written to an optical disc or a USB disk.

Each Beta release candidate must contain the following:

  • A directory tree with two top-level directories named 'Fedora' and 'Live', each of which should contain a sub-directory named after each primary architecture. Within the 'Fedora' top-level directory, each architecture directory must contain two sub-directories, 'iso' and 'os'.
  • A DVD install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Beta-(arch)-DVD.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Beta-x86_64-DVD.iso). The images must not exceed 4,590,208 KiB in size. These images must be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directory.
  • A network install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Beta-(arch)-netinst.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Beta-x86_64-netinst.iso). The images must not exceed 666,000 KiB in size. These images must be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directories.
  • Live booting images, in the ISO 9660 format, for each of the Desktop (GNOME), KDE, XFCE, LXDE and SoaS (Sugar) spins, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-Beta-(arch)-Live-(spinname).iso (e.g. Fedora-17-Beta-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso).

All image files for PC architectures must be prepared for writing to USB directly with 'dd' or similar tools, and must be prepared for both EFI and BIOS booting whether written to an optical disc or a USB disk.

Once a Beta release candidate is declared gold, the following must be generated:

  • A torrent file, compliant with BEP-0003, for each of the images described above except the network install images. Each torrent file must be named identically to the image file except that it must have the extension .torrent instead of .iso.

[edit] Final

Each Final test compose should contain the following:

  • A directory tree with two top-level directories named 'Fedora' and 'Live', each of which should contain a sub-directory named after each primary architecture. Within the 'Fedora' top-level directory, each architecture directory should contain two sub-directories, 'iso' and 'os'.
  • A DVD install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-TC(number)-(arch)-DVD.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-TC1-x86_64-DVD.iso). The images should not exceed 4,590,208 KiB in size. These images should be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directory.
  • A network install image, in the ISO 9660 format, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-TC(number)-(arch)-netinst.iso (e.g. Fedora-17-TC1-x86_64-netinst.iso). The images should not exceed 666,000 KiB in size. These images should be located in the /Fedora/(arch)/iso directories.
  • Live booting images, in the ISO 9660 format, for each approved spin, for each primary architecture, named according to the formula Fedora-(releasenumber)-TC(number)-(arch)-Live-(spinname).iso (e.g. Fedora-17-TC1-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso). The images should not exceed the size targeted by the group responsible for the spin. These images should be located in the /Live/(arch) directory.
  • A single file in each directory in the tree which contains any of the above images, named according to the same formula as the images, but with the final element and the .iso extension replaced by the word CHECKSUM.

[edit] Verification

Verification can be achieved by manually examining the tree generated by the image creation process and ensuring it meets the requirements.
