      • need to communicate upcoming changes with community

    • Neal started packaging RedHat bugzilla software
      • useful OBS bugowners (was also available in old
      • has external bugtracker tracking feature
      • has List-Id | X-Loop header so that gmail filtering works
      • should we upstream features needed by both SUSE and RedHat? E.g. having user tags about seeing certain groups of bugs - could be a plugin?
    • cboltz: provo-mirror is still outdated
      • home repos excluded to give it a chance to catch up
      • rsync bandwidth is low ~ <100MBit/s
      • currently running with latest rsync (from devel repo) because of broken --compress, but still sometimes breaks with --compress
      • will need to test latest rsync on the server side too
    • SSL/acme broken from nginx http=>https redirect
    • Neal plans to import salt into private pagure repo and integrate with Jenkins CI
      • split pillar into private submodule repo would make PRs hard
      • better: have a full private repo and Jenkins publishes a sanitized version without secrets
  • review old tickets
  • discuss infrastructure admins policies
    • lcp: github admins have 2FA enabled
      • should we add security policies about heroes + infrastructure
      • noggin / freeIPA has feature to enforce 2FA for members of a relevant group
