Sync the signed checksums to stage
We need to sync the signed checksums to /pub/alt/stage/ by running the following command
$ for dir in Cloud Container Everything Kinoite Labs Modular Sericea Server Silverblue Spins Workstation metadata; do sudo -u ftpsync rsync -avhH /mnt/koji/compose/38/Fedora-38-20221105.0/compose/$dir/ /pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.7/$dir/ --link-dest=/pub/fedora/linux/releases/38/Everything/ --link-dest=/pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.2/Everything/ --link-dest=/pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.3/Everything --link-dest=/pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.4/Everything --link-dest=/pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.5/Everything --link-dest=/pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.6/Everything --link-dest=/pub/alt/stage/38_RC-1.7/Everything; done
Lift RelEng freeze
Lift the RelEng Freeze so that the updates will be pushed to stable. This is done by editing RelEngFrozen variable in infra ansible repo and then run the bodhi playbook. Set also FedoraBranchedBodhi variable to postbeta
Beta Installation and Cleanup
This section outlines the steps that should be followed to ensure that older copies of Fedora betas are removed from the servers and that the correct permissions are set on the directories.
Remove older betas
This cleanup step is to remove the older betas from the
/pub/fedora/linux/releases/test/ directories. This can be done using the rm command:
$ rm -rf /pub/fedora-secondary/releases/test/38_Beta $ rm -rf /pub/fedora/linux/releases/test/38_Beta
Note that 38 should be replaced with the name of the beta release, such as 36_Beta, 37_Beta, etc.
Set correct permissions
This step is to set the correct permissions on the directories. This can be done using the chmod command:
$ chmod g+rx /pub/fedora-secondary/releases/test/38_Beta $ chmod g+rx /pub/fedora/linux/releases/test/38_Beta
Again, 38 should be replaced with the name of the beta release.
By following these steps, one can ensure that older copies of Fedora betas are removed from the servers and that the correct permissions are set on the directories.
Run the playbooks
$ sudo rbac-playbook groups/releng-compose.yml $ sudo rbac-playbook groups/bodhi-backend.yml
