1.0 Project plan:
3.0 Priority items and blockers
- Migration blocker
* Agree on scope of review/testing which is needed for changes coming via SLE sync
(IBS -> OBS).https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/70951
^ Feel free to add any ideas if you think that the current plan to trigger botmaster
pipeline which then would report the "diff" wouldn't be sufficient.
* Agree with Package Hub team and Release team on scope of co-operation on Backports
^ Let's not leave it all to just package hub crew. We are here to help!
* Maintenance setup for Jump/Leap 15.2.1 https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/70957
* To agree on what can be delivered by end of October
List of features marked as "DeveloperProgram"
JUMP related work is tracked here
Simplified Feature request for openSUSE Leap contributors
4.0 Updates from individual teams
4.1 openSUSE Leap Release Management
Owner: Lubos Kocman
Pending review of https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Jump/Policy/ChangeValidation
Jump to SLE 15 SP2 prior October "release". Still pending will be done next
I received a complain for not advertising enough Jump prototype availability
* s390x still looking for openSUSE Jump / Leap rel-eng
Berthold attended first rel-eng call with no commitment yet.
* Currently open topic with openSUSE Board on having non-SUSE Employee as a
"project maintainer". Gerald sees no reason why the Board would object (and
isn't convinced this even falls into the realm of the board) and will respond to
Lubos' mail. Next step would be an internal discussion with Security, Autobuild and
4.2. openSUSE Leap Release Engineering
Owner: Max Lin, Guillaume, Michel
* skelcd-control-openSUSE has been updated - the default installed repositories list
should be correct now
* pending work on openQA for the repository url change Leap -> Jump
* openqa results looks ok
Jump 15.2.1 bump happened - We will keep 15.2 for services which may otherwise have
issues with the 15.2.1 version.
Still some AArch64 specific regressions from 15.2 to Jump.
* VLC is missing on aarch64:
^ Backports is build only for x86_64. This was already case for gdb on aarch64.
* FPC compiler is missing for aarch64:
this breaks gdb (and probably more):
The update to fpc 3.2.0 (which includes an
auto-bootstrap process) has been released on Leap:15.2:Update,so PackageHub should be able
to fetch it now. Also keep in mind that fpc fails to build on ThunderX2 machines:
so the build may require few manual
Michel: same missing vlc for ppc64le/x86_64 for openQA tests.
Let's get a list of packages that have to be rebuild in Jump as they still
contain branding (should not be that many). These packages should have a CtLG Feature
requests in jira.suse.com
. Still pending
lkocman: to open task in progress-o-o
Frederic: there was a bug in gnome-shell that should be fixed already
Adrian already re-published project manually but there is still some work left to have
it "implemented". Still pending. Lubos: to check o the opensuse-admin issue.
4.3 SLE Release Management
Owner: Alex Herzig, Stefan Weiberg
Owner: Rüdiger Oertel Adrian Schroeter
Marco is working on the osc packtrack which should help us to see product changes that
happened in between builds or over some period of time.
Owner: Stephan Barth
Maintenance setup for Jump/Leap 15.2.1 https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/70957
Marcus: needs to know how to set it up, so we can setup announce tools.
The current way we think is that we would aggregate updates from SLE, openSUSE
Backports and Jump for any branding/pattern/000* changes. This could be perhaps then
aggregated to a single repository, so user does not end up with subscribing to 3
Marcus: the backports parts seem to be weird, because the backports repo has a lower
reference to backports
Marcus is currently concerned about quality of the backports as there is no openQA
Marcus agrees on the mini-interlock idea currently aiming signoff to mid of October
Stefan is fine with mini interlock proposal as well.
Owner: Marcus Meissner
No security concerns at this moment.
4.7 Package Hub
Owner: Wolfgang Engel, Scott Bahling
Not present. Wolfgang excused himself ahead of the time.
4.8 Beta Program
Owner: Vincent Moutoussamy
- All our discussions with the stakeholders of the project can be found
- When and how can we start building JeOS images for 15.3/Jump 15.2.1?
4.9 Engineering / Product Migration
Owner: Jiri Srain
installation-images difference: We need to analyze and document the difference first
to see whether there are options to unfork without changes to the way we build media
4.10 Engineering - Kernel
Owner: Libor Pechacek
Lubos to ask Takashi or Michal to join this call.
4.11 Engineering - Desktop
Owner: Frederic Crozat
KDE libraries have been integrated this week. Subversion and fwupd are submitted as
maintenance update. Packages waiting for KDE libraries are being prepared. plymouth
branding changes have been sent to Factory and will be pushed to SLE after
Frederic thinks that this might fix the issue on Leap/Jump with fallback to the
default three-dot theme. A fix is in maintenance queue
) but seems to be blocked somewhere in QA
maintenance ( https://smelt.suse.de/request/222764/
4.12 Quality Assurance / Migrations
Owner: Marita Werner, Heiko
Perhaps let's get somebody from QA migration team to act as a stakeholder.
Lubos invited migration team to this meeting.
[GW]: Latest udpate link:
4.13 SLE Architect
Owner: Thorsten Kukuk
4.14 Marketing and Community management
Owner: Douglas DeMaio (on leave)
Provided info to KDE Akademy Attendees -
Review of the landing page for Jump before any further
seemed like there was a lack of "information".
Consider providing a survey on https://survey.opensuse.org/
for a Beta Release of Jump
to get feedback from the community. This would provide good marketing material as well.
Owner: Gerald ;-)
4.16 Product Management
Owner: Stefan Behlert
Gerald reached out to PM for their take on/help with next steps in regards to
Jump/Leap 15.2.1 availability.--
