Added the start of moving fedorahosted's Hosting Requests to an automated process. (See infra ticket 2131). The script doesn't actually execute any commands or such yet, but does get information about tickets, parsed from a template that users are expected to fill out, when they request a project.. Upon mmcgrath returning from PHX and being able to give me orientation, I will play with it on hosted2, and actually make it do stuff ;).
Mike mentioned adding creation dates to groups again. Not sure if any of this will work, but hopefully, it's a step in the right direction. (group prereqs too - not sure how broken those are at this point)
added additional quicknesses to the script. 1) The script now takes about 6 seconds to run against my workstation. 2) User Groups are only created if the host has those users on that OS 3) total IO transfer against a sample migration takes about 2.1M Compression takes that down to about 1.3M. It will likely be worth having our proxy servers do this compression for us.
I'm not totally sold on this, and I haven't figured out how to include links in the actual bubbles. Take a look, let me know what you guys think. I'd like to use this ajax method to keep all the help items in one spot but I'm worried about how to get it translated.
added preamble to fas code. This does actually work and creates a dbfile that, when placed in /var/db/ will print your groups up. I've got some major overhauls to do here but the proof of concept is sound. (groups are still missing members though).
