We would like to welcome onboard the CERN Linux Distro team (
http://cern.ch/linux ) to the CentOS Core SIG. Thomas Oulevey and
Jaroslaw 'Jarek' Polok are going to be bootstrapping the CentOS
Community Buildsystem around Koji and helping run it going forward. The
community buildsystem is going to be the central place for all source to
binary builds used by all efforts other than CentOS Core ( for now ).
The initial target is to get a test instance running in the coming
weeks, and then work on the git.centos.org integration, with the aim of
having the 'production' buildsys online soon. This is the build service
that all SIG's and Core SIG builds will consume going forward ( with the
exception of CentOS Linux, we have quite a bit of work to do before we
can migrate that ).
Communications on this effort will be on the centos-devel mailing list (
http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel ) and on the
#centos-devel irc channel on irc.freenode.net. Hardware resources for
the effort have been identified, setup and access is being setup so
things can start rolling fairly quickly. Mike McLean and Fabian Arrotin
are going to be working with them.
