[CentOS-announce] CentOS Stream 8 is transitioning to be ahead of RHEL 8 - Compose push to mirror operations affected

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Folks,

As many of you know, CentOS Stream 8 is currently produced using an "inside out" workflow, meaning RHEL builds happen first and then are reflected in CentOS Stream afterward. This is not the case with CentOS Stream 9 where builds are performed directly by maintainers at Red Hat from merge requests in gitlab.com.

The CentOS Stream team is busy working on a project to migrate CentOS Stream 8 to the gitlab.com/Stream-first workflow. This is an exciting step to reflect CentOS Stream's true purpose in both currently active releases.

One effect of this transition, though, is that we need to migrate from the old mbox buildsystem to the new Stream koji (https://kojihub.stream.centos.org). To do this the team needs to pause regular compose and push-to-mirror jobs to avoid a split-brain situation with 2 separate systems. You may notice a lack of updates to the repos on the mirrors for a few more weeks while this transition is completed. The team's first priority is making sure that Red Hat maintainers take control over the c8s branches in https://gitlab.com/redhat/centos-stream/rpms (and builds in koji) and then the team will return to working on regular composes and push-to-mirror operations.

If you have any questions in the interim, please reach out to me.
