Preview Meeting follow-up


  • jlaska will investigate the 5 anaconda F12Beta issues to determine when the failures were introduced

INPRGRESS - Adam Williamson posted feedback during the beta release readiness meeting 36 issues were marked as beta blockers prior to freeze, 16 after the freeze.. I am manually inspecting the bugs added to the blocker list after the freeze (Sept 31) to determine if there is a pattern. So far, only 2 bugs took longer than 2 days to be escalated to the F12Beta blocker list. More manual fiddling required

  • jlaska to investigate packaging of for production instance

Packaged thanks to python setuptools. Need to determine whether to incorporate into autoqa now. Wwoods had the suggestion of creating a autoqa/front-ends directory to include this and other "Is <component> broken?" front-ends.

  • jlaska to request autoqa-devel@ for autoqa development discussion and patch review

Jlaska asked the group for feedback on what worked and what needs improvement for how the team tracks blocker bugs and organizes testing.

Oxf13 asked for extra eyes/fingers as crit-path tag requests come in for final. Adam asked whether the process for requesting a post-Beta tag was documented.


Adamw reminded the group, if you're aware of any bug that's in the released beta images that you think should be documented there, please either add it (there's guidelines on layout in the wiki page source) or add the 'CommonBugs' keyword to the bug report.

rats_install still failing

Jlaska asked if there were any updates on the rsync from It appears autoqa rats_install results are still failing due to bad content on the download site (see
