All Fedora Release Engineering Documentation has moved here with source hosted along side the code in the releng pagure repository


When the release has been fully tested and approved at the "Go/No-Go" meeting it is ready for release to the Fedora mirrors.


1. Sign all CHECKSUM files:

$ for checksum in $(find /mnt/fedora_koji/compose/23_Alpha_RC2/23_Alpha/ -name  *CHECKSUM); do cat $checksum >/tmp/sum && sigul sign-text -o /tmp/signed fedora-23 /tmp/sum && chmod 644 /tmp/signed && sg releng "mv /tmp/signed $checksum"; done

2. Prepare the master mirror by logging into releng2:

$ ssh <fas-username>
$ ssh releng2
$ sudo -u ftpsync mkdir -p /pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/{Fedora,Everything,Live} 
$ sudo -u ftpsync chmod 700 /pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/

3. Synchronize the Everything tree with the mirrors from releng2:

$ sudo -u ftpsync rsync -rlptDHhv --progress --stats --exclude images/ - \
    --exclude EFI --exclude isolinux --exclude .treeinfo \
    --exclude .discinfo - --link-dest=/pub/fedora/linux/development/13/ \
    /mnt/koji/mash/branched-20100518/13/ \

4. Synchronize the Fedora tree with the mirrors from releng2:

$ sudo -u ftpsync rsync -rlptDHhv --progress --stats - \
    --link-dest=/pub/fedora/linux/development/13/ \
    jkeating@compose-x86-01:/srv/pungi/13.RC4/Fedora/ \ 

5. Synchronize the Live images with the mirrors from releng2:

$ sudo -u ftpsync rsync -rlptDHhv --progress --stats --exclude \*.log \
    jkeating@compose-x86-01:/srv/pungi/live/Fedora-13-i686-Live{,-KDE}/ \

6. Change file permissionsOpen for mirrors (also known as the mirror stage bit flip) on releng2:

$ sudo -u ftpsync chmod 750 /pub/fedora/linux/releases/13


Verification is somewhat difficult as one cannot look at the content via the web server due to permissions. Typically we ask somebody from the Infrastructure team to give the tree a second set of eyes.

Consider Before Running

Hope the release is good!
