Hello all,

As discussed in the last 2 weeks, we are getting close to the 4.2 finish line
and releasing FreeIPA 4.2 Alpha 1. We already have most of the major RFEs
complete, some still miss some partial functionality, but most are testable and
in Alpha state already.

We need to now find out what is blocking us from releasing the Alpha. I know
only about 2 issues:

- ipa-replica-manage del does not work well with the Topology plugin yet - Petr
Vobornik and Ludwig are working on it
- ipa-replica-prepare had some issues after upgrade from 4.1.x to 4.2.0 due to
inaccesible certificate profiles - Jan, Martin2, Fraser was investigating

Is that correct? Feature owners, please let me know if any of the major feature
regressed and is not working properly, maybe by other patch sets being merged.

When the blockers are resolved or documented, we should release the beast. Any
volunteer for the release process?

Finally, I put together a release note draft for the Alpha, please help me
completing and updating it:

Thanks everyone!


I saw many fixes in Topology, that's good. I heard that pki-core 10.2.4 broke
us, but I could not reproduce it today with fully updated F22 machine and I was
able to install FreeIPA 4.2.git

If this is the case, can we just release the Alpha?

There are still some big brokens for upgrades.  The fixes for pki
are merged but there is no release yet.

What is the ETA? It would be nice to have the fix for Alpha, the package can
be built in the freeipa-4.2 COPR repo, together with the 4.2 Alpha release.
If the ETA is too far, we may need to release Alpha regardless as there are
some Test Days planned next week and upgrade is not required for such test
days.

Based on people educating me about how LDAP replication works:
tomorrow, hopefully.  In any case, I'm glad to know that the test
days will not be affected by upgrade issues.

Well, I will need some release in COPR for the test day. If clean install
works, it is good for me. So if you do not have Dogtag release with upgrade
issues fixed, I would just release Alpha as is, with this limitation.

I do not expect people upgrading to Alpha from production releases before 4.2
anyway.


I am only aware of one
reported issue for new installations: ipa-replica-prepare failing
when run on a replica (I haven't gotten to investigating this one
yet).


Right. This must be fixed before GA, but Alpha can live without it IMO.

I investigated this regression today - details are in another
thread, but it appears to be introduced by a different change and I
have requested comment from those more familiar with that change.

Thanks,
Fraser



I'm going to tag alpha_1-4-3-0 today at 15:00 CET.

I'm not aware of any alpha blockers on FreeIPA side. Please contact me if there are patches which should make the release.

This release will be available in mkosek/freeipa-4-2 COPR repository. When ready, the new dogtag should go into the COPR as well.

What are the know issues which should be mentioned in release notes?
