#7454 Should old module-build-service RPMS be pruned from epel7Server-infra and epel7Server-infra-stg repos?
Closed: Fixed 17 days ago by kevin. Opened a year ago by mprahl.

  • Describe what you need us to do:

There are currently a number of old module-build-service RPMS in the epel7Server-infra and epel7Server-infra-stg repos. Should those be pruned for improved repo generation performance and cleanliness? If so, please feel free to only keep the latest versions in both.

  • When do you need this? (YYYY/MM/DD)


  • When is this no longer needed or useful? (YYYY/MM/DD)


  • If we cannot complete your request, what is the impact?


This is something likely we need to discuss... on one hand, it would be nice to always have the last few so you could downgrade if you hit something but likely we rarely need all of them.

We could also do rebuilds every release or something and only keep the ones since then.

Presence of older builds in the repos is a consequence of implementing #7385.
Proposed fix: Enable garbage collection for infra tags - adjust koji-gc.conf to let koji-gc untag old builds and keep only the last 3 builds per package tagged.

I'm fine with koji-gc handling this. Can you make a patch?

This is a nice one for a new person to take...


Is the current template for koji-gc (garbage collection). Just need to add in a small stansa for infra and infra-stg tags and say keep the last 3?

@kevin is this patch enough?
I've set also an age constraint on -infra-stg tag, supposing things may change more rapidly there than in prod.


Yep. That will do fine! :)

Thanks @mattia !
