GSoC 2020 nmstate project update for June

This blog is about my experience working in nmstate project and first month in GSoC coding period. I was able to start working on implementing the varlink support mid of community bonding period. This was very helpful because I was able to identify some issues in the python varlink package that was not mentioned in documentation and I had to spend more time finding the cause of the issue. There have been minor changes to proposed code structure and project timeline after the feedback from the community members. In the beginning it was difficult to identify syntax errors in varlink interface definitions. This has been slow progress because of new issues and following are the tasks I have completed so far.

GSoC Progress Report: Dashboard for Packit

About Me

Hi, I am Anchit, a 19 y.o. from Chandigarh, India. I love programming, self-hosting, gaming, reading comic books, and watching comic-book based movies/tv.

The first version of Fedora I tried was 21 when I came across it during my distro-hopping spree. I used it for a couple of months and then moved on to other distros. I came back to Fedora in 2017 after a couple of people on Telegram recommended it and have been using it ever since. A big reason why I stuck with Fedora this time is the community. Shout out to @fedora on Telegram. They’re nice, wholesome and helpful. They also got me into self-hosting and basic sys-admin stuff.

Fedora Magazine trying Discourse

Starting today, Thursday 25 June 2020, the Fedora Magazine community is trying Fedora Discussion — a web forum using Discourse — as the primary communication mechanism.

The forum replaces two previously used communication channels:

  1. The Fedora Magazine mailing list used for general discussion
  2. The Pagure issue tracker used for submitting and discussion new article proposals

Having both of these merged into a single channel makes it easier for community members to see what is going on and join the discussion.

MBBox – Module Building in a Box

MBBox is a way to deploy everything you need to build modules in Fedora/CentOS ecosystems. It contains Koji (koji-hub, koji-builder, kojira) and MBS (mbs-frontend and mbs-backend). This should be enough to start building your own modules. It is now one of the initiatives being worked on by the CPE team.
