Preparing the website for a release
Update gpg key
As the release approaches, watch the
fedora-release package for a
new key to be added. Use the
update-gpg-keys script in the
fedora-web git repository to add it to
static/. Manually add it
Branch master for stable release in fedora-web git repository
git branch f12 master && git push origin f12
Comment out the git checkout line in
Prepare puppet commits
Prior to release day, prepare puppet commits to move the fedora-web branch to
the release (alpha, beta, final, whatever) and, edit
puppet1) to do the right thing with
Fire in the hole
On release day, wait for rel-eng to say go, then push the puppet changes
cd ~/puppet && git push). Then, on
# Ensure you have the puppet repo checked out to ~/puppet and up to date cd ~/puppet && make HOSTS="puppet1 proxy1 proxy2 proxy3 proxy4 proxy5" push # Once /usr/local/bin/syncStatic is updated with your changes, run sudo /usr/local/bin/syncStatic # To sync the changes out, you can use func if you have sudo on puppet1. # Otherwise, SSH to the proxies and call the below command. sudo func proxy\* call command run "/usr/local/bin/syncFiles.sh fedoraproject.org /srv/web/fedoraproject.org/"
to push the updated website live.
Fedora 12 Notes
(Still needs to be wikified)
The times below are based on the timing of the website build and sync cronjobs. It'd be a good idea to double check those in advance. Unfreeze website (modules/fedora-web/files/syncStatic.sh), push after 9:05 AM EDT. Run sudo /usr/local/bin/syncStatic on puppet1 after 9:45 AM EDT, make sure this succeeds by checking /var/lib/puppet/application/fedoraproject.org. Release: Push commit to redirect get-prerelease to get-fedora. sudo func proxy\* call command run "/usr/local/bin/syncFiles.sh fedoraproject.org /srv/web/fedoraproject.org/" Manually run sudo /usr/local/bin/syncFiles.sh fedoraproject.org /srv/web/fedoraproject.org/ on any proxy server where the func call did not succeed. If necessary, clear proxy caches using rm -rf /srv/cache/mod_cache/* After the site is out, do link checking and push any last-minute fixes/changes by committing to the git repo, running syncStatic, and syncing to the proxies as above. Update the static banner on start.fedoraproject.org. The procedure is the same as with fedoraproject.org, except that the command to run on the proxies is sudo /usr/local/bin/syncFiles.sh start.fedoraproject.org /srv/web/start.fedoraproject.org/ Adding add release banner countdown add new release checksum files add gpg keys Watch the webmaster@ moderator queue for reports of website issues.
