#141 What is the process to change default profile name with zero down time?
Opened a year ago by jaruga. Modified 6 months ago

Now modules/ruby has "default" as a default profile, and only have "default" profile in it.
I want to change it to "common".
What is the process to prevent a down time?


document: modulemd-defaults
version: 1
    module: ruby
        2.5: [default]
        2.6: [default]


                - ruby

My guess is we need below processes, right?

  1. Add "common" profile to https://src.fedoraproject.org/modules/ruby/blob/master/f/ruby.yaml , push, and build. Then there are 2 profiles "default" and "common" are available.
  2. Change "default" to "common" in https://pagure.io/releng/fedora-module-defaults/blob/master/f/ruby.yaml , then it is merged.
  3. Remove "default" profile in https://src.fedoraproject.org/modules/ruby/blob/master/f/ruby.yaml . push and build.

This is hard.

This hard processes happen as the profile setting is manged separately.

We discussed this during today's meeting and we agreed that profiles shouldn't be dropped during the lifetime of a stream to avoid unnecessary breakage.

  * AGREED: Profiles cannot be removed during the lifetime of the stream
    in order to avoid breaking scripts. Options may exist for
    exceptional cases on an individual basis.  (contyk, 15:41:06)

Other than that, your proposed workflow is valid. Step 3 shouldn't be implemented, however, unless there is an actual need for it.

This needs to be added to some documentation or guidelines. Any volunteers?
