[openstack-dev] [diskimage-builder] Does anyone use "fedora" target?

0 votes

Hi,

The "fedora" element -- the one that downloads the upstream .qcow2 and
re-packages it -- is currently broken as the links we use have
disappeared [1]. Even allowing for this, it's still broken with some
changes to the kernel install scripts [2]. AFAICT, the only thing
noticing this is our CI.

fedora-minimal takes a different approach of building the system
within a blank chroot. It's what we use to create the upstream
images.

I believe the octavia jobs switched to fedora-minimal?

Is there anyone still using these image-based jobs? Is there any
reason why you can't use fedora-minimal? I don't really see this as
being that useful, and our best path forward might be just to retire
it.

Thanks,

We use it downstream to build ironic images using the process kevin
documented here. https://cloudnull.io/2016/11/osic-building-baremetal-ironic-images/

It can probably be updated but it'd be nice for it to not disapear out
from under us.
