KDE SysAdmins plans for the future


KDE's system administrators have a to-do list that is a couple of miles long. At the same time there's a daily churn of server maintenance, ticket servicing, spam killing and a litany of other small tasks that have to be taken care of. Over the last year, however, we've managed to shorten that mile-long todo list, and we're on track to check a lot of tasks off in the next few months.

Some of the tasks on that list include modernising our git servers, finally finishing the migration to Phabricator, making Identity easier to manage, making email services and code-hosting redundant, and killing off older unmaintained sites and replacing them with new ones.

In this talk, we'll talk about what we've changed so far, what we're planning on doing in the recent future, and most importantly, how KDE contributors' workflows are going to be affected because of the changes. We're also going to talk about where we're currently stuck and could do with a bit of help.

Sysadmin is an unique part of KDE, where people with an interest in system administration and DevOps, and a preference to work on languages like Python and PHP find a home in our community. This talk is for everyone who likes designing and maintaining infrastructure and working in these languages and tooling.
