The Penrose Panel: Leadership Q&A
The relationship between Fedora, RHEL, and CentOS is anything but obvious. With the release of RHEL 8 Beta and the Fedora Lifecycle objective there are new questions to be answered. Join us to hear the leads from each distribution talk about the challenges and opportunities ahead.

EPEL Renewed
The Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) was started in 2007 as a method to make Fedora packages available which were not in Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). At that time, there was a strong pull by system administrators for long lived packages to match the slow changing lifetime of RHEL. Over the last decade, the growth of agile workflows and devops culture have made the need for faster moving packages and tools than what the older EPEL workflows could handle. EPEL needs continual renewal in order to make sure that it can deliver these tools to the places using it. Kevin Fenzi and Stephen Smoogen will discuss the proposed future roadmap for Enterprise Linux versions and listen to what developers want to see in the next iteration of EPEL.

Managing a fleet of Linux desktops with Ansible
Ansible is most commonly used to manage servers or individual developer desktops. But it can be an excellent tool to mange a fleet of enterprise desktops.
This session will cover:
1.How SysAdmins can use Ansible to meet desktops' unique requirements in an enterprise environment
2. What roles, modules & features I & other Ansible developers are working on to improve managing desktops
Examples include:
1. Setting default or mandatory settings for GNOME & KDE (e.g., screen lock policies)
2. Firmware updates
3. PackageKit Offline Updates for packages that are disruptive to update while the system is running
4. Installing a massive number of packages (users use desktops for many applications, unlike a server)
5. Setting permissions for graphical apps with PolicyKit

Take The Scare Out of Using Fedora Rawhide
Every developer's dream is to have the latest and greatest software. In Fedora, that means using Fedora rawhide, but it comes with the caveat of instability. Since Fedora rawhide is an untested version of Fedora, it is expected to have bugs. If we can attract more people to use Fedora rawhide, that means more testing. This provides an opportunity to fix issues at an early stage, which inturn, improves the overall quality of Fedora. This talk focuses on using Ansible to automate your workstation setup, so that you can be on rawhide and be able to start anew within no time in the event an update goes awry. The goal of this talk is to get more people using rawhide. We'll go over automating your workstation setup using Ansible, trying Fedora rawhide, testing it, and reporting any issues.

Multi-Arch FedoraCI container builds with OKD
Multi-Arching Origin Community Distribution of Kubernetes (OKD) is a key step towards allowing Fedora to build Multi-Arch containers. With that goal in mind, we set out to rebase OKD on fedora to support x86_64, aarch64, ppc64le, and s390x. We've learned a lot along the way, and there is still a lot to do!

We'll discuss:
* Why we needed to rebase OKD Containers on Fedora to support different architectures
* What will be required with OKD 4.0
* How you could start deploying OKD on other Architectures.
* Where you can get involved.

If you're interested in running OKD on Fedora, or multiple architectures then this talk is definitely for you

Eliminating Scriptlets for Fun and Profit
Does your installation, image generation or CI setup take *far too
long*? In this talk, we'll discuss how we analyzed hundreds of
packages in Fedora to identify their use of RPM scriptlets as an
enormous contributing factor to slow installations and complications
around generating stable container and ostree images.

We will discuss the various strategies that we have today to eliminate
many of these scriptlets as well as our plans for eventually removing
most or all of them from Fedora.

This talk is intended for those who are working in packaging or
image-generation on RPM-based systems and have at least a basic
familiarity with rpmbuild and RPM spec file syntax.

Re-Thinking Spec Files
Right now many RPM spec files are in large parts just boiler plate code. In the current development cycle we try to get rid of this clutter by adding templates and automatic packaging features to rpmbuild. This will make packaging easier as it will provide pre-arranged building blocks and offer more control over larger sets of packages.
This will also change the relation between RPM as a multipurpose tool and the single package/packager by adding a layer in between take will take care of common tasks.
We will discuss how these features affect your packages and what you can do to help getting this right and how to get involved in taking ownership of this new intermediate layer.
