Agenda / Notes
Update from EMO (Wayne/Gunnar):
- No major update from Wayne and Gunnar. We just re-iterated on the improvements of the revised EDP and noted that the new release process is in effect.
- Feedback was provided during the call about the the new release process:
- projects need better visibility whether a release review is required or not
- one suggestion was to provide additional information perhaps within the project handbook
- Wayne would like to make it visible in PMI when creating/editing a release record but this requires more time
- No update on IP tooling infrastructure. There has been a bit of a delay and it's taking longer than expected. Wayne would like to brief the AC at some point. There is no action item for AC right now.
Infrastructure Update (Denis):
- The GitHub Pull-Request validation hook has been replaced with a new GitHub app
- It's more reliable and provides a better experience
- CBI migrations to Jiro (and: what is Jiro)
- the build infrastructure started migrating towards a Kubernetes clusters
- Jiro == Jenkins Instance Running on OpenShift
- project JIPPs will be migrated individually
- projects need to support the migration (please do!)
- acquired additional compute power for the build infrastructure
- freed up JIPP hosts will also join the build infrastructure
- Q: what help is need from projects for JIPP -> Jiro migration
- A: only testing/validating
- Q: will projects be able to provide customized containers?
- A: yes
- limits exists around capacity for projects
- the Kubernetes cluster is used exclusively for build, not for project services/hosting
- Q: is the build Linux only or will other operating system be supported?
- A: not possible yet, Linux only; the Webmasters are hoping to integrate Windows and Mac at some point
For follow up question about Jiro and/or help please reach out via the CBI mailing list
- Q: Can projects request their own GitHub organization?
- A: Yes, this is supported. Please open a bug via Community > GitHub. However, please note that this requires Webmaster time and needs to be carefully scheduled. There will be requirements that must be met (eg., branding, accountability).
