adamw #topic Fedora 19 Alpha status 15:04
adamw so, everybody touch wood, but we're actually looking pretty good 15:05
adamw #info current blocker list: 15:05
* j_dulaney doesn't have any wood around. 15:05
adamw there's only three proposed blockers (which don't look likely to be accepted) and two possible issues in the accepted blockers 15:05
jreznik we were able to figure out initial-setup one in the morning 15:06
adamw right - this is , it was 'fixed' but the fix was incorrect 15:07
adamw we're currently getting the fix corrected 15:07
jreznik it has to be verified now 15:07
adamw then there's , it looks like some progress has been made there 15:07
jreznik we have at least a clue and also - it was moved from F15 beta blocker to NTH that time and we have several workarounds... 15:08
jreznik I'm not sure how to fix properly... the second option should be doable 15:08
adamw yeah, we can re-discuss it at the blocker meeting and see if we want to drop blocker status 15:09
adamw #info 929403 and 928279 are known to be 'outstanding' blockers 15:09
adamw dgilmore is out today unfortunately so we may have to wait till tomorrow for a compose 15:09
adamw #info dgilmore is out today, may not be able to get next compose until tomorrow 15:10
* jreznik is not sure pbabinca would be able to create compose, could ask (in case we would need it) 15:10
adamw nirik is usually the backup 15:11
* nirik could try if need be 15:11
brunowolff It's not good that only one person is trusted (in the knows what to do sense) to do composes. 15:11
jreznik adamw: yep I know, the idea is that palo could help us in out timezone too (to make the process faster when needed) 15:11
* nirik has access and can do them 15:11
adamw ah 15:11
adamw so, looking at test coverage, we're not looking too bad 15:11
adamw we could do with testing some USB installs to bare metal, and UEFI too 15:12
* j_dulaney will work on the USB 15:13
* satellit need someone else to try bare metal USB install and confirm what I saw 15:13
adamw yeah, i suspect that'll be just your system' 15:13
adamw well, I had issues with a dd'ed usb stick the only time i tried now i come to think of it, so maybe not. but litd worked okay. 15:13
* satellit always worked before 15:14
adamw okay 15:14
* j_dulaney had no problem the last time he tested dd live to USB 15:14
adamw we only need either dd or litd to work at alpha though, so even if dd is busted it's not a disaster. but it'd be good to check 15:14
* j_dulaney is dding even now 15:15
adamw it doesn't look like we need karma for any of the testing fixes except (which should probably go along with a systemd build) and (we're waiting for a compose to test that one) 15:15
adamw i suppose we really should get a compose done with libreport in it to make sure that fix works... 15:15
adamw #info karma needed for and 15:15
* satellit did netinstall of cinnamon 1 hr ago saw initial-setup on reboot 15:16
jreznik satellit: but with improper fix 15:16
jreznik (actually I'd argue it wasn't as bad as 3/4 of services are still using the F17 way...) 15:17
adamw jreznik: well the biggest problem was that it didn't conditionalize the service enablement to happen only on first install 15:17
jreznik also I should ask FPC to make the new "enabled by default" way more visible in the guidelines 15:17
adamw but anyhoo. 15:17
jreznik adamw: it's just a bad time for initial setup handover to vratislav, especially as it's a completely new software... :( 15:18
adamw jreznik: can you ask vpodzime to edit the new systemd build into the initial-setup update? 15:19
adamw so, add systemd-200-4.fc19 to 15:20
jreznik adamw: sure, I was thinking about it but guys were faster than me 15:20
adamw =) 15:20
adamw okay 15:20
adamw does anyone have anything else on 19 Alpha? any significant issues we're not considering? 15:20
jreznik hmm, he already left 15:21
jreznik adamw: do you have rights to do it in bodhi? actually I think I could do it too... 15:22
adamw i don't have superpowers in bodhi, but nirik could if need be 15:22
* nirik nods. just let me know what you need. 15:22
nirik I'm doing a f19-updates-testing push right now, can edit after that 15:23
