Description Tobias Florek 2021-12-01 12:20:37 UTC
Is it possible to help, e.g. request a branch f35 for containers/python3?  Is it possible to do that automatically?

Comment 1 Lumír Balhar 2021-12-01 13:18:35 UTC

Nice to hear that the image actually has some users. May I ask you what are you using the image for? I'm going to request a new branch and I'll try to build the image as soon as possible.

Comment 2 Tobias Florek 2021-12-01 19:45:33 UTC
Yes, I am regularly using several Fedora images from  Pretty much always if I had to add additional packages to ubi8 images.  This time it's as a builder for a python application with an additional unoconv package.

Comment 3 Lumír Balhar 2021-12-02 09:28:56 UTC
I've requested new branches for python3, s2i-core, and s2i-base images.

Comment 4 Tobias Florek 2021-12-02 16:19:52 UTC
Thank you!  As a medium consumer of, I often run into not updated images.  Do you know whether the auto-new-branches when a new fedora release happens also works with container images?  If not, do you know the component that I can ping/fix to allow it?

Comment 5 Tobias Florek 2021-12-03 07:29:22 UTC
I see the branches have been created but nothing has been built.  Is that another manual step?  And how and when do the images get rebuilt?  I do not see any (security) updates.

Comment 6 Lumír Balhar 2021-12-06 07:10:29 UTC
I have multiple bad news for you. The most important is that the containers currently don't build, see:

Another one is that you'll be facing outdated containers in Fedora very often because being a maintainer of a container image in Fedora is painful and there is no automation. You have to request new branches for new fedora releases manually but this is not the worst. I co-maintain three s2i images in Fedora/RHEL/Centos and they are all in a row: f35 → s2i-core → s2i-base → python3. Unfortunately, there is no way how to automatically rebuild dependant images when one of them changes so you have to do it all manually. Still not impressed? Well, you cannot rebuild all of them at once because you cannot use a container image from testing (candidate registry) to build next one in the chain so after every build, you have to create an update, wait until it reaches stable and then you can rebuild the next one. It seems that there is a way how to work around it but nobody knows how it works and nobody cares for months, for example

Are you interested in container images in Fedora? It would be nice to have somebody who would dedicate some time to this.

Comment 7 Lumír Balhar 2021-12-23 11:02:42 UTC
There is a problem in Koji preventing me to build the image, see:

If you really need the image, you can take the source files from upstream:

Even the CI and Koji are both broken, I've verified that the image works and all tests we have passed.

Comment 8 Lumír Balhar 2022-01-20 09:42:56 UTC
The image is ready. Could you please test it?

Comment 9 Tobias Florek 2022-01-20 10:13:46 UTC
Is there a way to pull the image using standard means or do I have to download the tarball and import?

Comment 10 Lumír Balhar 2022-01-20 10:41:18 UTC
It should be soon available in the candidate registry, this should work: podman pull
