Notes on a couple of FreeIPA bugs: host group sudo rules and failure to start with recent pki-core on older, upgraded installs

So I’ve had a couple of issues with my personal FreeIPA deployment in the last couple of months that I never managed to dig into properly because of work on Fedora 24. But now F24 is done, I had time to figure them out, finally. The first bug is simpler and probably has a wider […]

On Snappy and Flatpak: business as usual in the Canonical propaganda department

NOTE: this post is entirely personal. The opinions are my own and do not represent Fedora or Red Hat. The facts, however, are all 100% truthy. 😉 Just to make it 100% clear for any visiting journalists etc. who don’t know me: I work for Red Hat, on Fedora. I am not unbiased and am […]

Fedora 24 delay, and more openQA work

You probably read a more sensationalized version of this on Phoronix already, but we had the Fedora 24 go/no-go meeting today and decided to slip for a week. The sole reason for this was this blocker bug, which is to do with booting Windows from the Fedora boot menu on a UEFI system, wasn’t fixed […]

Testing FreeIPA in openQA

Here, children, gather round and let Uncle Adam tell you a story. Are you ready? Here we go! Once upon a time there were some test cases for a thing called FreeIPA. And once upon a time, two poor people called Adam and Stephen did have to run these tests manually, all the goddamn time. […]

LinuxFest NorthWest 2016

Time for another of my increasingly irregular blog posts 🙂 I was at LinuxFest NorthWest 2016 last weekend. I’ve been going to LFNW for several years now, and I look forward to it every year – it’s just a great conference, which has managed to grow to nearly 2000 registrations this year while keeping its […]

Fedora QA goings-on: Test Days, Fedora 24 Beta testing, LinuxFest NorthWest and more!

I’m on a train and I haven’t been blogging enough lately, so I figured I’d write something up! We’ve had a couple of great Test Days in the last couple of weeks: i18n Test Day and Live Media Writer Test Day. Thanks a lot to everyone who came out and tested – the attendance was […]

Fedora Media Writer Test Day tomorrow! (2016-04-19)

Hi folks! Just another Test Day notice: tomorrow (Tuesday 2016-04-19) will be Fedora Media Writer Test Day! As part of this planned Change for Fedora 24, the Fedora graphical USB writing tool – formerly called “Live USB Creator”, and still technically called that in terms of source repos and filenames, but in the process of […]

Fedora nightly image finder

Guess what? I wrote another new thing! Here’s what it does: it makes a page where you can easily find Fedora nightly images. Yup, that simple! Finding nightly Fedora builds has always been a bit of a pain. For quite a while we had this page, which just linked to a couple of canned Koji […]

Fedora 24 Internationalization Test Day on 2016-04-12!

Hi folks! Yep, it’s that time again: Test Day time! Next Tuesday (hey yeah, I’m posting the note in good time for a change) will be Fedora 24 Internationalization Test Day. What’s ‘internationalization’? Well, it’s stuff like input methods and locale-specific packaging, so one big topic this time will be the changes to glibc locale […]

Translation Test Day tomorrow, Tuesday 2016-03-29!

Hey folks! Sorry for the short notice, but once again it’s time for a Fedora Test Day! Tomorrow, 2016-03-29, will be Translation Test Day over in #fedora-test-day on Freenode IRC. Fedora’s dedicated g11n (globalization) team is working hard as always to get translation and internationalization in shape for the Fedora 24 release, so please do […]
