Making koji changes

Make the following koji tag changes

$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f33-updates-candidate f33
$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f33-updates-testing f33
$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f33-updates-pending f33
$ koji remove-tag-inheritance f33-override f33

$ koji add-tag-inheritance f33-updates-pending f33-updates
$ koji add-tag-inheritance f33-override f33-updates
$ koji edit-tag --perm=admin f33

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 "F33" --stable-tag f33-updates --testing-repository updates-testing --package-manager dnf --no-create-automatic-updates --composed-by-bodhi

Add the modular release

Run the following command on your own workstation to add the modular release

$ bodhi releases create --name F33M --long-name "Fedora 33 Modular" --id-prefix FEDORA-MODULAR --version 33 --branch f33m --dist-tag f33-modular --stable-tag f33-modular-updates --testing-tag f33-modular-updates-testing --candidate-tag f33-modular-updates-candidate --pending-stable-tag f33-modular-updates-pending --pending-testing-tag f33-modular-updates-testing-pending --pending-signing-tag f33-modular-signing-pending --override-tag f33-modular-override --state pending --user mohanboddu


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

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

Send Announcement

Email devel-announce and test-announce lists about Bodhi Activation. Please find the body of the email below:

Hi all,

Today's an important day on the Fedora 25 schedule[1], with several significant cut-offs. First of all today is the Bodhi activation point [2]. That means that from now all Fedora 25 packages must be submitted to updates-testing and pass the relevant requirements[3] before they will be marked as 'stable' and moved to the fedora repository.

Today is also the Alpha freeze[4]. This means that only packages which fix accepted blocker or freeze exception bugs[5][6] will be marked as 'stable' and included in the Alpha composes. Other builds will remain in updates-testing until the Alpha release is approved, at which point the Alpha freeze is lifted and packages can move to 'stable' as usual until the Beta freeze.

Today is also the Software String freeze[7], which means that strings marked for translation in Fedora-translated projects should not now be changed for Fedora 25.

Finally, today is the 'completion deadline' Change Checkpoint[8], meaning that Fedora 25 Changes must now be 'feature complete or close enough to completion that a majority of its functionality can be tested'.

Check for other variants like modular, container and flatpaks

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.
