In the upcoming months, we plan to migrate our service to a new cluster. However, this may affect
pull_from_upstream jobs due to the new firewall rules. The problematic aspects could be:
- commands you run in your
actionsduring syncing the release involving interactions with external servers
- downloading your sources from various hosting services (crates.io, npm, gems, etc.)
To smoothen this transition, we kindly encourage you to enable one of these jobs on our already migrated staging instance. This recommendation is particularly important if you belong to one of the groups affected by the two previous points. This proactive step will help us identify and address any issues promptly.
Both instances can be run at the same time and the behaviour can be configured via the
packit_instances configuration key,
which is by default set to
["prod"]. Picking just one instance is required only for
bodhi_update jobs since
both instances work with the production instances of Fedora systems. To avoid too much noise in your dist-git PRs, you
may enable the
propose_downstream job for only one target, resulting in only one additional PR created.
Here's how you can enable one of the jobs on the staging instance:
pull-from-upstream: The only thing needed is to duplicate the job in your Packit config using
packit_instancesconfiguration option. Example:
- job: pull_from_upstream
propose-downstream: For this job, you first need to enable our staging Github app (you should be already automatically approved if you had been previously approved for production instance). After that, similarly to
pull-from-upstream, you only need to duplicate the job in your Packit config using
- job: propose_downstream
When merging the PRs created by Packit, please don't forget to merge the PRs created by the production instance
if you have a follow-up
koji_build job enabled to ensure your builds will not be skipped
(or you can allow builds for staging instance as well, see allowed_pr_authors)).
We would be happy if you could then report any problems to us. We appreciate your collaboration in ensuring a seamless migration. Your Packit team!
