December was a quiet month for the Stewardship SIG. On the one hand, clocks seem to tick slower this time of year in general, and on the other hand, some policy decisions around the future of Modularity in fedora made us put our work on the slow burner for now. However, there’s at least some newsworthy things to share.
With the holidays at the end of the month and the scent of Glühwein in the air, December ended up being probably the most quiet month of 2019. There’s only a few noteworthy package updates, but overall, it’s been the same as always, just fewer packages overall.
There’s a lot of changes that we pushed in November, and there’s little time to talk about them, so here’s a list of all the updates we submitted to fedora in November.
November was a busy month. Almost all elementary projects got new releases, and there was the usual amount of package updates for golang, python, and rubygem packages.
It’s a bit late, but here’s the complete run-down of what the Stewardship SIG accomplished during the month of October.
October seems to have been a pretty average month with respect to the distribution of updates (some elementary stuff, some ruby, some python, some golang packages), but the total number of updates seems to have been slightly below average.
The month of September was a bit more quiet regarding the activity of the Stewardship SIG, though we again managed to push some important changes and updates, both to reduce the number of packages we possibly need to maintain, and to bring the whole stack into better shape and more up-to-date again.
So, September was a pretty busy month, with lots of activity in all the areas where I’m working on packages. There were a handful of new releases of elementary projects, new Ruby packages and finally landing Jekyll 4 in fedora, some Golang package updates, and some work on python packages, as well.
Whoop, this report is a bit late, but I still want to give a summary of what the Stewardship SIG has been up to in August. TL;DR: We reduced the number of outdated packages from about 55% to about 45% and introduced some changes to limit the number of packages that we’re going to have to maintain in the future.
Alright, it’s time for another report! I’ve decided to make this a monthly thing instead of publishing this stuff every week for various reasons (and it’s more efficient this way). Either way, a lot of stuff happened in August.
