Fedora Infrastructure's ongoing issues
Paul Frields continued to post periodic updates about Fedora Infrastructure.
"Our team has been hard at work for several days now, restoring services in the Fedora infrastructure. We started with what we identified as Fedora's "critical path," those systems required to restore minimum daily operation. That work to be completely finished by the end of the day. We then move on to our other value services to complete them as soon as possible."
On August 22nd, a more complete report was published. Rather than excerpt it here, Fedora Weekly News encourages readers to review the entire announcement.
Finally, Dennis Gilmore announced that "effective immediately we have replaced the CA that is in use for cvs.fedoraproject.org and koji.fedoraproject.org This effects uploading to lookaside cache and building packages."
Seth Vidal explained that "a number of addresses @fedoraproject.org there were windows when those email addresses would have bounced reporting that the address did not exist."
He goes on to say that the problem has been corrected, but anyone who wants the details should read the full message.
