coprs and fudcon

January 22, 2013

I’m still working on recaps from fudcon but I wanted to mention this to anyone who asked:

 

If you asked for access to coprs and you haven’t received a reply from me that is b/c I forgot that you asked. Please drop me an email and I can add you.

 

Thanks

We’ve gone through about 45 individual builds of a goodly number of pkgs thanks to the help of the testing volunteers. We’ve found a bunch of bugs and fixed many of them.

Here’s what’s changed:

1. we’re working on cli for copr – more info in this thread: https://lists.fedorahosted.org/pipermail/copr-devel/2013-January/000216.html

2. we’ve got some mockups from the UI team which should help mold where things can go

3. better logs and results for multiple builds

4. I took a first cut of an outline for setting up copr: http://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/copr.git/tree/copr-setup.txt

 

fudcon tips and the flu

January 10, 2013

Hi everyone, it is time for my annual plea to everyone going to fudcon to wash their hands many many times, try not to cough or sneeze on anyone and to do their best to not touch me at all.

It is winter and we’re in the middle of a massive flu and norovirus outbreak here in the US.

If at all possible I would like to come back from fudcon without bringing any sort of pestilence with me.

This is just a reminder that if you see me incased in a plastic ball don’t be alarmed just smile and wave. 🙂

 

 

 

coprs status

My call for testers was successful. We have 21 people now who have access to coprs and a number of folks have started testing builds out. We’ve found some bugs and some feature enhancements needed. Also discussion has started on the copr devel mailing list and we’ve gotten some patches contributed to help us make a cli come to pass.

If anyone else wants to take a look at the code and help out, you can see it all here in copr cgit.

thanks to all the folks who are helping test and develop the copr code.

 

 

call for serious testers

January 2, 2013

Right now, we have coprs working. It’s not fancy or beautiful and I am POSITIVE many bugs are lurking there (and some aren’t lurking at all just sitting there). So, we need people who will seriously undertake testing. I don’t want people who want to build things and don’t care about reporting issues. I also don’t want people who are going to be filled with destructive criticism.

If you want to test it out and cite issues please email me: skvidal at fedoraproject.org

you must already have an active fas account and some srpms you want to build.

I only need maybe 10 or 20 people at the moment. Not looking to overdo it 🙂

Thanks
