[Rdo-list] FYI - Fedora.next calls for early testing (and some details on how)



For those of you that live on the bleeding-edge testing RDO on Fedora,
Fedora project is going through a lot of changes (dubbed as
'Fedora.next') in its upcoming release cycle. And, the project is
looking for early testers/tinkerers to make the release a success.

If you have spare cycles, please spend some time testing (heads-up:
it'll be very disruptive) Fedora Rawhide (that'll be 21) for your
regular work-flows w/ RDO, etc.

You can trivially test[1] Fedora's latest bits (Rawhide) in a virtual
machine, like that (below is a way I prefer):

Create a Fedora 20-VM with a 40GB disk image, update, install Rawhide
packages:

    $ virt-builder fedora-20 -o rawhide.qcow2 --format qcow2 \
      --update --selinux-relabel --size 40G\
      --install "fedora-release-rawhide yum-utils"

Import the disk image into libvirt:

    $ virt-install --name rawhide --ram 4096 --disk \
      path=/home/kashyapc/rawhide.qcow2,format=qcow2,cache=none \
      --import

Login via serial console into the guest, upgrade to Rawhide:

    $ yum-config-manager --disable fedora updates updates-testing
    $ yum-config-manager --enable rawhide
    $ yum update yum
    $ yum --releasever=rawhide distro-sync --nogpgcheck
    $ reboot

Optionally, you can take a snapshot so you can revert to a known sane state:

    $ virsh snapshot-create-as rawhide snap1 \
      "Clean Rawhide"
