#32 [talk] Modernize your applications during Fedora upgrades
Closed: Talk Scheduled 2 years ago Opened 2 years ago by evilissimo.

What’s your proposal?

The Leapp project wants to give more power into the hand of application developers
and system administrators to perform additional tasks during the upgrade process.

Leapp extends the power of the DNF upgrade capabilities and allows additional
custom handling to be added at many stages of the upgrade process.

This talk gives an introduction how Leapp can help to improve the upgrade
experience for Fedora users.

Examples what Leapp could do on top of the normal DNF system-upgrade:

  • Ask the user if they would like to switch to the new BootLoaderSpecification
    as part of the upgrade process - and do the conversion during the upgrade
    process for them

  • Modularity:

  • [Idea] detect python2 apps and automatically subscribe to python2
    module streams

  • [Idea] detect postgres 9.x and ask if the user wants to upgrade to the
    latest version or would like rather to subscribe to an appropriate
    9.x postgres module for them

  • [Idea] Service Defaults
    Ask the user if they would like to apply newly implemneted service
    defaults or stay with old ones

More can be done these are just examples that are possible. More in the talk :-)

Who needs to be in the room for this to succeed? List each person by Name and FAS ID as Name (FAS ID)

  • None specific everyone who is interested in this topic

  • Talk of 60 minutes

Anything else we need to know? This could be room setup, A/V needs, etc. If you have private concerns, please email them to flock-admin@fedoraproject.org.

I just need a way to present something since it mainly will be a presentation.

Is there a concrete proposal for improving upgrades in Fedora? I'm very interested in that!

Hi Matt, thanks for your interest. There's no concrete proposal just yet, I expect a proposal to come up soon, however we probably won't make it in time for Flock.

And sorry for the delay with my response, I was on PTO.

@evilissimo The CfP Committee would like to have a better idea of how applications and the process will be improved and modernized.
