Pungi Refactor


Changing how pungi works to make composes more distributed and transparent.


Current status

Detailed Description

Changing how pungi works to make composes, we aim to achieve a few goals.

  • Always do a complete compose, including rawhide and branched. Essentially we will have TC composes daily.
  • Make sure that the tools used to make Fedora translate directly to making RHEL
  • Enable more people to be involved in the development of compose tools
  • Farm off compose tasks to hosts in koji

Benefit to Fedora

  • Faster composes
  • More frequent composes
  • Nightly composes will look the same as a release compose
  • More transparent and publicly visible logs.
  • More people able to work on the tools used to make Fedora


  • Proposal owners: Extend the functionality of pungi and koji
  • Other developers: NA
  • Release engineering: This will be a major change in how releng does composes
  • Policies and guidelines: releng docs on how to do composes will need updating
  • Trademark approval: N/A (not needed for this Change)

Upgrade/compatibility impact

There will be no changes to existing installs, The release tree will probably look a little differently and some files will have different names

How To Test


User Experience

Fedora Composes may look a bit different to previously but have all the same functionality.

Contingency Plan

If we are unable to get the compose process changed before Alpha Change freeze we will revert to using the old method of composing Fedora.

  • Contingency mechanism: (What to do? Who will do it?) N/A (not a System Wide Change)
  • Contingency deadline: Alpha Change freeze
  • Blocks release? Yes
  • Blocks product? All
