Fedora 7 Launch



We've got a lot of prep work to do before Fedora 7 launches. I'd like to compile a list so if anything is missing let me know:

1) Static page content: Work with duffy, karsten, ricky and the websites team to create a nice looking static page. Even better would be getting this page into plone. Here's where it is at now: http://people.redhat.com/duffy/fedora/web/static-page.html Ultimately this page will be distributed to the mirrors in hopes we'll not need to use them. The idea is that a GET request followed by a REDIRECT is the easiest, most efficient operation we can do if our webservers get overloaded like they did last release.

2) Mirrors.fedoraproject.org: Looking good so far except for the memory leak which steps have been taken to negate. We will also need to deploy this on an additional box. I have an idea where to put it and hope to have it up fairly soon.

3) Proxy server upgrades. Right now our proxy servers are running stock RHEL4. We've been meaning to upgrade them to RHEL5 for a while now but they are on a different network segment then the rest of our hardware and as such we cannot easily pxe boot them (it would involve a request to the SOC). I'm going to put a plan together to do this and minimize any risk that may come up. The main benefit being mod_proxy_balancer. I'm still hoping we can acquire some hardware balancers but this will help us limp along for this release :)

4) PPC Builder: Is being delivered right now. Still needs to be installed, built out put into the koji mix.


What am I missing?
