Foreman 1.2 packaging tasks

For the first RC of Foreman 1.2, I'd like to ensure we have a basic RPM
installation that works using software collections (SCL), preferably
using foreman-installer. Debian and Ubuntu builds are unchanged and
will work as they do today.

The EL6 x86_64 build is mostly ready but the EL5 and 32-bit platforms
aren't and SCL-enabled Passenger is also missing. I'm going to consider
these lower priority (add them to RC2) and in the meantime get RC1
packages out with this configuration:

EL6 x86_64, Debian Squeeze and Wheezy (amd64 and i386), Ubuntu 12.04
(amd64 and i386)
SCL on EL6
Webrick on EL6, Passenger on Debian and Ubuntu

I've put together a few lists of things that need doing. If you can
chip in, please do.

High priority (before RC1 release)

··· ============= 1. foreman RPM spec needs a refresh * https://github.com/theforeman/foreman/pull/565 + fixes noted in my comment + https://github.com/domcleal/foreman/commit/1d7cffa4 + Sam's recent fixes * ensure SCL init.d enhancements are in our RPM
  1. proxy RPM spec
  • needs a refresh for 1.1
  • move into smart-proxy repo for use with tito?
  • confirm proxy remains non-SCL?
  1. rkerberos needs building in koji (proxy dependency)
  1. dbmigrate needs fixes
  • using bundle exec, skip for bundler_ext
  • ignores SCL (we could perhaps do this in the installer)

Medium priority (before RC2 release)

  1. ruby193-rubygem-mysql{,2} need building in koji

  2. Passenger needs building

  • LD_LIBRARY_PATH tweaks from jomara and/or OpenShift
  1. installer
  • report foreman.rb location changes if puppetmaster is in SCL
  • passenger package name will change
  • change generate_answers.rb shebang: /usr/bin/env ruby
  • change foreman-installer package dependencies for ruby193
  1. SELinux subpackage

Lower priority (before 1.2 release?)

  1. EL5 32/64-bit, EL6 32-bit packages need building

  2. sign RPMs

  3. update foreman-release version

  4. nightly RPMs built from develop

  • run tito on CI to trigger build jobs in koji
  • publish resulting repo to yum.tf.org/nightly

Looks good. 1 additional deb task - the security token rake task is still
commented out in the deb constructs, due to a bug we found at 1.1 release.
I assume this is now fixed?

Completed, thanks Sam!

Added to apt/<os>/nightly for all 6 os/arch combos. We'll need to remember
to promote these to rc/stable as required. Sinatra 1.3.6 has been placed in
the wheezy nightly repo to counter the 1.3.2 duplicate networks bug - this
will also need promoting.

I've been working this week on rebuilding the RPMs in the Katello koji
(foreman-nightly-rhel6 target) for the latest develop, which will then
apply equally to 1.2. If somebody gets time to carry on and make
progress, that'd be appreciated!

There were a few changes I had to make to develop, namely moving rel-eng
to a top level dir (tito can't handle it), adding gettext_i18n_rails_js
(a recently added dep) and a couple small spec file fixes. This branch
is usable with tito for scratch builds:
https://github.com/domcleal/foreman/compare/develop-builds

(spec and comps changes can be merged in develop once we've got it
building.)

I haven't had a successful build of this yet due to the
gettext_i18n_rails_js dependencies not being there for assets
precompilation. I've been working through its dependencies and building
them into Koji's foreman-nightly-rhel6 tag. The one I'm stuck on is
ruby193-rubygem-gettext, which is failing while executing find-lang.sh
during build as it can't find .mo files in the source tree:
http://koji.katello.org/koji/getfile?taskID=35642&name=build.log

Though with some debug, you can see the .mo files are present, so I'm
not sure what's going on yet:
http://koji.katello.org/koji/getfile?taskID=35644&name=build.log

My current patch to the rubygem-gettext.spec is here:
http://pastie.org/private/nc5hmtdeg6k5kkve90qsg

It disables testing since we're not building the gems required for that
(and we're not really using this lib much), but fails on the %find_lang.

Cheers,

I started with smart-proxy.

My plan is to take related spec files from foreman-rpms repo, merge them
to have one spec for all Fedora/RHEL releases and add supoprt for tito.
There are some issues I'd like to discuss:

  • the rpm is called foreman-proxy while the git repo is called
    smart-proxy. Is there reason for this? Shouldn't that be unified?
  • who should decide / what it depands on whether the proxy should be
    packaged with or without SCL?

Cheers,
Martin

Done. I added both to katello-thirdparty and built in koji.

What from the list bellow needs to be worked on next?

Smart-proxy status:

  • naming kept as it was -> foreman-proxy package in smart-proxy repo.
  • spec is part of the smart-proxy repo
  • support for scl added
  • support for tito added

I'll go on with rkerberos if it is not taken already

This is now finished, so the remaining spec changes got merged into
develop last night:

I'm now able to build Foreman on Koji from develop, with a few small
tweaks which you can carry out locally. I've documented the process
here for both scratch and release builds using tito and Katello's Koji:

http://projects.theforeman.org/projects/foreman/wiki/RPM_Packaging#foreman

Once we've published the SRPMs for 1.2.0, I hope we're able to document
a local build using only mock, so anybody can follow this without
needing Koji.

I've also been writing up the entire release process as I go,
suggestions are particularly welcome here:

Can't recall. Something that came up at the eleventh hour during RC testing
that we disabled and then forgot to enable. I can test it some time this
week if you remind me what I'm looking for :wink:

Let me know if you hit any issues with it, it worked well on EL6 but
hasn't been SCLed yet.
