I've been doing that for Jeroen. He's submitting patchsets for review

I've built at least a few anaconda updates for him. He is currently

updates for F-11 and when that's ready, he'll submit the patches for
review
for anaconda and we can do an update.

That's good news. Thanks for doing it. Are these test packages available
publicly?

You'll have to ask Jeroen how he handles testing. Once he has a patchset
suitable for an F-11 update, he submits it for review and then we go from
there. The idea being that once we roll the update for F-11, he'll be ready
to pick it up and make images.


There a source repository online at:

- git://git.kanarip.com/anaconda, or
- http://git.kanarip.com/?p=anaconda

There's two YUM repositories online, and public;

- http://www.kanarip.com/anaconda/ - stable

- http://www.kanarip.com/anaconda-devel/ - unstable

The testing is handled by our very adequate friends in the test team of Fedora Unity.

Furthermore, by the time the updates are available in the official upstream repository, the product has already hit the streets.

It's the rest of the world that needs the update to be available in the official repositories; I can do what I want wrt. the Fedora Unity Re-Spins. However, I'm also upstream for that one other utility people use to Remix, Re-Spin, whathaveyou. To have them ask me again and again and again why things don't work, or why things can't be fixed, made me ship the stable anaconda fixes repository in every default Revisor configuration.

Now, I've requested anaconda commit access for stable branches since like forever, since the anaconda team does not want to touch these anymore, I've offered to be on the receiving end of bugs for these branches, so it wouldn't hit the upstream developers, I've requested GIT commit access years ago in order to be able to work with the upstream developers, but so far only David Cantrell and Hans de Goede are willing to help me. David pushes out an update to anaconda every now and then, and Hans reviews lists of commits I'm thinking about cherry-picking from rawhide to the stable fX-branch -because frankly that's all I do until I'm allowed to sink my teeth in it.
