Inactive Provenpackagers SOP
This document describes the process for identifying and removing inactive provenpackagers in accordance with FESCo policy.
This process occurs once per release cycle, starting at or near the branch day. It occurs in two parts.
Generate a kerberos ticket with
fkinit -u <YOUR FEDORA ACCOUNT ID>
Run the inactive_provenpackagers.py script from the pgm_scripts repo. This script iterates over all members of the provenpackagers group, so it may take a while. Since it’s a read-only operation, it’s safe to re-run if it gets interrupted.
Send an announcement of accounts identified as inactive using the template below. Use the devel-announce mailing list in the to: field and bcc the @fedoraproject.org addresses of listed as inactive.
In accordance with FESCo policy, the following provenpackagers will be submitted for removal in two weeks based on a lack of Koji builds submitted in the last six months. If you received this directly, you can reply off-list to indicate you should still be in the provenpackager group. Note that removal from this group is not a "punishment" or a lack of appreciation for the work you have done. The intent of the process is to ensure contributors with distro-wide package privileges are still active and responsive. This process is done regularly at the branch point in each release.  https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fesco/Provenpackager_policy/#_maintaining_provenpackager_status <OUTPUT of inactive_provenpackagers.py script>
Wait two weeks from the initial notification.
File an issue with the Infrastructure team listing the accounts to remove from the provenpackagers group.
