== Description ==
+
<!-- Put a description of the task here. -->
+
Each release of Fedora is maintained as laid out in the [[Fedora_Release_Life_Cycle#Maintenance_Schedule | 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 ==
 
<!-- Use headings to list out tasks in some semblance of chronological order, then flesh them out... I don't know them all, just guessing. -->
 
 
=== Set date ===
 
* FESCo responsibilities:
 
** Follow guidelines of [[Fedora_Release_Life_Cycle#Maintenance_Schedule | 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 ===
 
* disable builds by removing targets
 
<pre>
 
koji remove-target dist-f12
 
koji remove-target dist-f12-updates-candidate
 
</pre>
 
* 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:
 
<pre>
 
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 queries:
 
 
<pre>
 
-- For the Package ACLs
 
update collection set statuscode = 9 where name = 'Fedora' and version = '11';
 
 
-- For the Application Database
 
select * from repos where shortname ~'^F-11-.*' and active = true;
 
-- Check that only repositories for the EOL repo are listed.
 
BEGIN;
 
update repos set active = false where shortname ~ '^F-11-*' and active = true;
 
-- Make sure the same number of records were modified as previous select
 
COMMIT;
 
</pre>
 
 
=== 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.
 
 
=== AutoQA ===
 
The [[AutoQA]] project maintains a config file ({{filename|repoinfo.conf}}) that describes available package repositories and their inheritance.  When a Fedora release is EOL'd, the {{filename|repoinfo.conf}} file needs to be updated.  Please [https://fedorahosted.org/autoqa/newticket?summary=Update%20repoinfo.conf%20-%20Remove%20release&type=task&component=production&priority=critical&milestone=Hot%20issues file an autoqa ticket] to modify the {{filename|repoinfo.conf}} file to remove pointers to the EOL'd release.
 
 
=== Bugzappers Tasks ===
 
* Close all open bugs
 
* [[BugZappers/HouseKeeping#End_of_Life_.28EOL.29 | End of life process]]
 
 
=== Bugzilla ===
 
* Update the description of Fedora in bugzilla for the current releases.
 
** Get someone from sysadmin-main to login as the fedora-admin-xmlrpc@redhat.com user to bugzilla.
 
** Have them edit the description of the Fedora product here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/editproducts.cgi?action=edit&product=Fedora
 
 
=== Docs tasks ===
 
* any?
 
 
=== Cloud tasks ===
 
 
* Remove unsupported EC2 images from [[Cloud_images#Currently_supported_EC2_images]].
 
 
=== Final announcement ===
 
* from FPL to f-announce-l
 
** on EOL date if at all possible
 
** link to previous reminder announcement (use HTTPS)
 
 
==== Announcement content ====
 
* Consider this [http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=announce&msgNo=407 EOL announcement] from openoffice.org
 
** Note FAQ

<!-- Provide a method to verify the action was successful -->
