PDC is the Product Definition Center, running at: https://pdc.fedoraproject.org/
However, this application, developed internally, is no longer maintained. This codebase has been "orphaned" for a few years now and we need to find a solution for it.
We should review and have a critical look on what we store in there, see what is really needed and then find a solution for its replacement.
PDC is a core-component to our dist-git mechanism as it stores for each branch in dist-git their "End-Of-Life" (EOL) date after which packagers are not allowed to push to these branches.
PDC is also used to store information about composes that is used, among others, by @adamwill.
What is the minimal outcome you would like to see from this initiative to be satisfied?
What are your nice or really nice to have wishes?
Will this initiative impact CentOS, Fedora? All users? All contributors? A group of contributors (which)?
Contributors: Packagers and QA
Do this initiative have any dependencies? - Not really
Skills needed? - Python dev
Person who must or should be involved? - For input to the current usage of PDC: @kevin @mohanboddu @adamwill
Other work that should be completed prior to this initiative? - None that I can think of
Is this initiative under a time-constraint? Should it start or end before a certain date?
Not real time-constraint but it is an unmaintained code-base.
Issue tagged with: To be scoped
For RHEL products we forked PDC and use a small part of it's API related to content delivery repositories. It's meant to be replaced in the future with a new microservice but I'm sceptical about it happening any time soon.
It would be nice if it's possible to resurrect https://github.com/product-definition-center/product-definition-center for Fedora use: cut off all the unneeded parts, update to Python 3  and migrate to a supported Django version .
BTW, what happened to fpdc?
 Work done in my py3 branch (I believe this passed all the unit tests and was in working order, but that was 3 years ago).
 It support version 2.1 in my branch, but dependabot on github now complains that is should be at least 2.2.13.
