Making koji changes

$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f40-updates-candidate f40
$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f40-updates-testing f40
$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f40-updates-pending f40
$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f40-override f40

$ koji add-tag-inheritance f40-updates-pending f40-updates
$ koji add-tag-inheritance f40-override f40-updates
$ koji edit-tag --perm=admin f40

Update bodhi rpm release

Set the bodhi rpm to release to not to automatically create the update and also bodhi knows to compose the updates

$ bodhi releases edit --name "F40" --stable-tag f40 --testing-repository updates-testing --package-manager dnf --no-create-automatic-updates --composed-by-bodhi --state frozen

Due to a bug in Bodhi, it is critical that Bodhi processes be restarted any time bodhi releases create or bodhi releases edit are used.

Add the container and flatpak releases if they weren’t already added to bodhi

Update vars

Update the FedoraBranchedBodhi and RelEngFrozen vars in infra ansible

Update all relevant projects in ansible

As in this Ansible Pull request create changes for the 40 release

Run the playbooks

$ rbac-playbook openshift-apps/greenwave.yml
$ rbac-playbook openshift-apps/bodhi.yml
$ rbac-playbook groups/bodhi-backend.yml
$ rbac-playbook groups/releng-compose.yml
$ rbac-playbook manual/autosign.yml

Greenwave runs in OpenShift (as implied by the playbook paths), and so the change will not be live right away when the playbook finishes. You can monitor to wait for the new policy to appear (it should take a few minutes).

Restart bodhi services

Restart bodhi services to understand the bodhi new release on bodhi-backend01 (Look at warning in and the bug is

$ sudo systemctl restart bodhi-celery
$ sudo systemctl restart fm-consumer@config
$ sudo systemctl restart koji-sync-listener

Within the beta freeze

Process stable push requests

During freezes we need to push to stable builds included in the compose. QA will file a ticket with the nvrs to push.

If you are pushing a bodhi update that contains multiple builds, you need only pass bodhi-push a single build nvr and all the others in that update will be detected and pushed along with it. However, if you are pushing multiple disjoint bodhi updates then each build will need to be listed individually.

$ sudo -u apache bodhi-push --builds '<nvr1>,<nvr2>,...' --username <username>

Creating fedora-beta.conf

Everytime we go in beta freeze, we need to generate a fedora-beta.conf in order to make the beta, this should be created in the branched f40; For now, this process is done manually by copying refrences from fedora.conf, and making sure below references are updated for the beta. For the references, please check the f40 beta PR.

  • —  Update references for COMPSFILE and RELEASE to point to correct 40 version.

Consider Before Running

No considerations at this time. The docs git repository is simply a static html hosting space and we can just re-render the docs and push to it again if necessary.
