Highlights from 2022-03-21 release¶
Large queue improvements¶
Lately, there have been multiple concurrent mass rebuilds pushing Copr to its limits. When reaching 70k builds in the queue, several problems start to appear. We will focus on each of them in the following release, with a goal to handle at least twice as large of a queue.
In this release, we optimized some queries for listing pending builds and implemented more detailed statistics about the task queue allowing anyone to see the owners, projects, or chroots with the most builds in the queue. See PR#2108 for more information.
We also improved the performance of batch-related routes by caching and indexing the data (PR#2091).
We also made the priority queue to be much fairer in PR#2080.
More copr-cli options for editing chroots¶
There is now
additional_modules field when listing chroots in
copr-cli get-chroot owner/project/chroot
Lastly, there is a new option for resetting chroot fields to their respective defaults, e.g.:
copr-cli edit-chroot owner/project/chroot --reset additional_packages
Signing packages with SHA256¶
Due to dropped support for SHA1 keys in RHEL9, we are moving towards signing packages in Copr with SHA256 keys (PR#2111).
Since this release, all new Enterprise Linux 8+ packages are going to be signed with SHA256 keys, and all existing Enterprise Linux 9 packages are going to be re-signed with SHA256. The mass re-sign of EL9 packages is going to be done on Monday and Tuesday 2022-03-21 – 2022-03-22.
Gradually, we will make this change for older distributions and start signing all chroots with SHA256, except for Enterprise Linux 7 and older where SHA256 isn’t work. This change should happen in the following weeks (we we have this fully tested on EL8).
