It's probably fine.
What's the difference between a functional team and a failing team? How do we make a failing team functional, and a functional team great? Let's talk about layers of communication, why outcomes are more important than process, and how to figure out where to begin - and whether you should.

The future of langpacks in Fedora
In this session we will brainstorm the present and future of langpacks in Fedora.With the advent of containers, cloud images, flatpaks, and Silverblue, the need for a more modular OS is increasing and this also applies to the evolving handling of langpacks. Langpacks are no longer just translations
but also include locales, fonts, input methods, as well as dictionaries etc. The i18n UX will need to balance what is pre- and post-installed.

Modularity: to modularize or not to modularize?
The goal of this talk is to provide a higher-level guidance about more complex module packaging, and to set a common ground before discussing this and other topics at the Modularity & packager experience BoF.

I'll have a multiple packaging problems prepared, and demonstrating how Modularity can help with some of them, but also which ones Modularity can't help with. I'll offer existing non-modular solutions to some of the problems as well.

This is a higher-level talk than tooling and making modules, but more detailed and guiding than my previous introductory talks.

It's partly a reaction to to the Modularity vs. libgit discussion. I realized we need something like this when posting an answer to the thread.

Improving Packaging Experience with Automation

We are working on a Fedora Objective about saving packagers’ time with an automation related to building of their packages. That includes but not limited to automatic rebuild of packages on dependency changes, removing manual work on writing changelog both in spec and later in git and doing release bumps on rebuilds.
The talk will be split into 3 smaller parts:
  • Presenting Objective to the audience
  • Comparing workflow of Fedora packagers with other distributions with demo
  • Discussing the objective with audience and asking for a feedback
This talk is about presenting our ideas of how to improve the quality of life for packagers (the lifeblood of our distribution) and getting feedback (in a panel-ish form) about how to further refine and improve the packaging and maintenance experience. This is becoming increasingly important as the way we deliver software is increasing in complexity with things like modules and flatpaks and whatnot.

Cupcakes: Fedora Legal Simplified
A discussion of the current state of legal affairs in Fedora. I'll start with an overview of the current policies and practices that exist because for legal reasons, then discuss our stance on licensing, export compliance, patents, and trademarks. I'll throw in some specific changes that have occurred in the last year, and have a fun discussion on any questions or issues that the Fedora community wants to bring up. Has your bug been sitting in FE-LEGAL forever? Has no one replied to your legal@lists.fedoraproject.org email? Do you want to hear about cupcakes? Are you bringing the speaker a fine alcoholic beverage for his troubles? If any of these are true (especially the last one), then you should enjoy this talk.

Mitigating Fedora's legal risks are the responsibility of all of its community members, and the best way the community to be successful at this is to understand the problem space and know when they need to escalate a concern.

Speeding up and securing container builds with Buildah
This talk will cover how you can replace the functionality of docker build with the Buildah. It will examine different ways of building container images and explore how you could build more security images using alternatives to the Dockerfile.  Finally we will look into building containers within a locked down containers via Podman or Kunernetes/CRI-O.  I will cover considerations when it comes to security and speed of building.  I will show you how to modify the way a buildah runs inside of a container, allowing you to choose how much security you want versus how fast you want the container images to be built.

Just In Time Transformation
The formula to success is ever changing so successful stewards plan for the future. In 2015 Red Hat both began and stopped work on the next generation of RHEL. Why was that? RHEL, an Open Source distribution combining the work of thousands of upstream communities, still had its roots in a process and culture that predated Agile software development. To build the next generation of Enterprise Linux it was necessary to change the very core of how it was made while maintaining compatibility and community norms. Join this session to learn how Red Hat changed the design, process, and cultural underpinning of its most successful product and what we learned along the way.

Fedora CI and rpminspect
This talk will discuss the Fedora CI project and use the rpminspect tool as an example.  It will be about 25% on Fedora CI and 75% on rpminspect, but that's not a hard and fast rule.  rpminspect is a new tool being developed to help ensure packaging policy and build reliability.  I call rpminspect a "build deviation analysis tool".  It checks for policy compliance as well as things like ABI differences.   Did new symbols appear in shared libraries?  Did any disappear?  Do we have all of the hardened options enabled for the build?  Are there any unapproved setuid executables?  And so on.  rpminspect can check a single build or compare one build to another.  Developers can run it locally or it can run via Fedora CI and report results that way.

https://github.com/dcantrell/rpminspect

Package maintainers and developers are the main audience. Anyone interested in helping improve the way we keep Fedora reliable and stable. rpminspect is open for contributions and part of the talk will involve explaining how to contribute.

Pagure CI based on Zuul
The OpenStack Foundation is handling its CI with a powerful stack, based on community-developed tools: Zuul (job orchestration and code gating) and Nodepool (job resources lifecycle management).

This stack provides many interesting features for software development and CI:
  • Event-driven pipelines based on Code-Review or Pull-Request workflow: jobs can be triggered automatically when a PR is submitted, changed, approved, or when the repository is tagged.
  • CI-as-code: jobs are defined as YAML + Ansible playbooks, pipeline definitions as YAML files stored within the project's code repository
  • Support for jobs inheritance, jobs dependencies, jobs chaining (artifacts sharing)
  • Speculative testing of new jobs before merging: jobs will be run as they are submitted to make sure they behave as expected
  • Cross repositories dependencies: a jobs' workspace can include unmerged patches from other projects if specified
  • Parallel job run, only capped by resources available or predefined quotas
  • Automated jobs resources lifecycle management: resources like VMs or containers needed by a given job can be defined in-repository, spawned on demand at a job's start, and destroyed when the job is finished, or held for debugging
  • Well-defined, reproducible job environments to eliminate flakiness
  • Speculative testing before merging (gating): if several patches are about to land at the same time, they are tested on the repository's future state.
Until now, Zuul was only able to listen to Gerrit or Github events, A new driver [1] allows Zuul to interface with Pagure as well. Pagure, Zuul and Nodepool could therefore combine into a very efficient CI/CD stack.
Resources:
During this session I want to explain:
  • What Zuul and Nodepool are: overview of their main concepts and features
  • How Zuul interfaces with Pagure thanks to the new driver
  • How Zuul can be set up to build RPMs and run validation jobs on Pull Request events on Pagure
  • How the Fedora Project's CI could benefit from using Zuul

Fedora RISC-V 64-bit: a three-year long journey
Flock marks three years for Fedora RISC-V 64-bit (riscv64) efforts. August 10, 2016 was the day we could run rpmbuild on riscv64 [0]. We had multiple talks about Fedora and RISC-V in a number of RISC-V Workshops (Europe & Asia) and FOSDEM, but not directly with wider Fedora community. We would like to provide a quick introduction into RISC-V, Fedora RISC-V efforts (past, present and future). Furthermore we would like to gather some feedback on where we should focus the most.

Audience:

  • Anyone interested into RISC-V.
  • Package maintainers who are interested into testing their packages on Fedora/RISCV.
  • Fedora infrastructure people who could help figuring out which are must-have components in Fedora/RISCV infra (e.g. we don't have modules yet).

NeuroFedora: FOSS and open (neuro)science
Evidence based policy making is extremely important. Not only does this require scientists to work harder on informing the powers that be, it is perhaps more important that scientific process be made accessible to everyone without limitations.

The scientific community has recently begun pushing towards Open Science, and the philosophy of Open Science, not surprisingly, is very similar to that of FOSS. Researchers are now using FOSS for all their programming needs, the data they gather is being made openly available for all to see, and the results they come up with are being disseminated openly via the Open Access movement.

Some of us recently came together to form the NeuroFedora initiative — Free software for Free neuroscience.

In this talk, I will:
  • briefly discuss the scientific pipeline to show how FOSS already enables a large proportion of it
  • attempt to disprove the myth that "research is too hard for anyone but academics" with the aim being to encourage FOSS enthusiasts to take it up as a hobby in the same way they take up development of any other kind
  • introduce the NeuroFedora initiative, discuss what the research community thought of our poster at CNS2019
  • present ideas, and discuss how we at Fedora can help further Open Science in general.
  • conclude by proposing that the many science related SIGs that already exist in the Fedora community come together under an umbrella group that makes longer term goals for Fedora's role in Open Science in a way similar to how the Council directs Fedora.

Open Source Agile in Red Hat's Community Platform Engineering team
In 2001, the Agile Manifesto, a collection of simple principles for software development, was published. It helped shape how development teams work. Meanwhile, open source has its own set of principles that promote and build community, transparency, and collaboration, and meritocracy. On paper these two sets of principles match closely. But in practice, using Agile in an open source project may make community members wary, especially volunteers.

This is extra challenging for Fedora, since Red Hat sponsors the project and contributes in order to meet business goals. The Community Platform Engineering team has a foot in both the business and open source camps to support Fedora and CentOS. How can we better interact with global volunteers and Red Hat, increase confidence in delivering on important goals, and do it openly and transparently? How do we embrace and not isolate? How do we ensure that we add value? How do we actually function? We are about to embark on an Agile Transformation and we want you to come on this journey with us.

What you will learn from this session:
  • Who the CPE team are, how we work, how we plan, how we can work together
  • How we try and balance being part of Red Hat and Fedora from a priority perspective
  • Our plans for moving the team forward to make us deliver more value for the Community
  • How you can get involved and how you can help shape how we work as this will be Open Source Agile

State of authentication and identity management in Fedora
Fedora Project is often seen as a leading test bed for identity management, thanks to its close relationship with FreeIPA, SSSD, and other projects. However, we rarely talk about goals and use cases these projects are trying to solve within Fedora distributions' context. Changes happen almost in every Fedora release: authconfig replaced by authselect, SSSD providing a new Kerberos credentials cache storage, smartcards support being added and a multitude of other changes came in with FreeIPA or Samba refreshes. Still, use of new features is somewhat limited by a relative complexity of detecting and setting up actual environments.

With the addition of Fedora Silverblue, many classic desktop integration methods that are backed by FreeIPA, Samba and SSSD tools would need to be re-thought to fit immutable containerised environments.
There is also an industry-wide effort to reduce use of insecure versions of various network protocols. While there is a good progress with protocols like TLS and common security policies, ease of use for desktop users directly clashes with these activities and we need to look into how both user experience and security could be improved.

The talk is going to provide a Fedora-wide overview of the work being done by multiple teams to improve identity and authentication packaging infrastructure within Fedora projects, how individual components play together and what to expect in future.

Audience:
  • Fedora users and system administrators
  • Silverblue developers
  • Fedora QE

Fedora kernel tree... OF THE FUTURE
The primary way Fedora kernel developers work on the Fedora kernel is via the kernel dist-git repo. This has served us well for years. The preferred way for most developers to interact with a kernel tree is via a src-git tree. The focus of this talk is about ongoing work to produce a src-git tree suitable for use in Fedora and the unique pain points for a kernel. Part of this talk is also a follow up to last years talk about aligning Fedora + RHEL and how this work fits into that.
