Hi RDOers,

Note that the rdoinfo reorganization has been merged and we are monitoring
that everything keeps running as expected. Let us know if you observe any
abnormal behavior.

If you are using rdopkg, make sure you are using the latest released
version (0.47.3) or you may find unexpected results in some cases.

Best regards,

> Hi,
> As discussed some weeks ago, we are reorganizing data files in rdoinfo
> repository. The goals of this reorganization is to improve the CI and
> management in gerrit, as discussed in [1]. After this reorganization:
> - rdo.yml and deps.yml contain all info but tags and buildsys.tags for
> OpenStack packages and dependencies.
> - tags (used by DLRN instances to identify what packages tu build in RDO
> Trunk repos) information are stored in files under "tags" directory. There
> is a file named <tag>.yml for eah tag.
> - buildsys-tags (used to tag the backages in CBS and specify what builds
> go to each CloudSIG repo) will be stored in a file named <buildsys-tag>.yml
> under "buildsys-tags" directory.
> Note that after merging this change [2], when you need to update tags or
> buildsys-tags to add new packages, new deps or propose updates, you need to
> use the corresponding tag files instead of rdo.yml or deps.yml.
> Also note that, if you have some script or tool which parses rdo.yml or
> deps.yml, you need to adapt it to this change. The recommended way to parse
> rdoinfo is to use distroinfo [3], as it hides the actual distribution of
> data in files. This change will not affect any tool using distroinfo.
> In the next dates we will update the documentation in RDO to reflect this
> change.
> Don't hesitate to contact me on #rdo or using this mail list if you have
> further questions or doubts.
> Best regards,
> Alfredo
