Release Team Meeting 2023-11-20

Monday edition: focusing on .y RCs

Foreman 3.9

Schedule | 3.9.0 TODO | CI overview

Katello 4.11

Today we focused on the Pulp 3.39 issues, since that’s the blocker identified last time. Currently fresh installations work, but upgrades don’t. Obsolete python39-* extensions provided by libcops, libsolv, createrepo_c by pcreech · Pull Request #767 · theforeman/pulpcore-packaging · GitHub is in progress and we’ll continue to iterate on it.

Time wise the aim is to get Pulp sorted out by Tuesday, so branching happens on Wednesday. That would mean schedule wise there would only be a day delay and RC2 will follow RC1 just a bit quicker than planned, but GA shouldn’t shift. It should be noted that Thursday & Friday are US holidays, so some people will be out. @ekohl will try to take over tasks left over.
