  • Port to python 3 - Pungi, Mash, releng scripts, fedpkg, rpkg, etc - F27
  • Bodhi: Support for non-rpm content
  • Move base image builds to OSBS - F27 (dependent on Multi-arch support)
  • Automate security updates (in addition to 2 week updates) for containers using automated workflow - Review for F27
  • Rel-eng: Segment nightly composes more logically
  • flatpak prototype
  • Rocket base images
  • Documentation of rel-eng process so that internal release engineers can contribute
  • Development & Deployment Process Improvement / Standardization
  • Container test status results reported from Taskotron via fedmsg / email / UI
  • Test automation for Atomic in Taskotron (?)
        • Integration with UAT Framework
        • Integration with Autocloud OR porting functionality & tests to Taskotron
        • Integration with Tunir OR porting functionality & tests to Taskotron
        • Integration with OpenQA
      • Move ostree creation out of Bodhi
  • RHEL process checks done internally that should also be done in Fedora (ie license checking, rpmdiff / static analysis, etc)
  • Ability to create embargoed builds in tools (at least koji & bodhi) and lift the embargo after release so that security can get embargoed changes out quickly
  • rel-eng scripts cleanup
  • rel-eng tools are not easily testable or contributed to
  • changes can be tested in an integrated environment before releasing to production
  • Critical system / use case integration with gilmsg where appropriate in release tooling
  • Development release gating with sanity testing / stability
  • Layered images _not_ from RPMs — source-to-image or other
  • Releng CI (on Jenkins)
