Re: Fedora 7 Launch



Hey Mike,

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 :)

Have you looked at using iptables for load balancing? Nth module could
help with this.

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.

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


What am I missing?
