Test day has been rescheduled accordingly to April 5th.
Testers: please continue testing the released Alpha and providing feedback
A few packages that were meant to be shipped today as part of the beta
release have been already pushed to testing repositories so you can already
provide some feedback on the beta sanity.
- hyperconverged deployment doesn't work due to missing updated
- ovirt-engine is still using ansible 2.9.27 and wasn't updated from 4.5.0
- ovirt-appliance and oVirt Node have not been built with current content
of the testing repos as beta has been rescheduled
Be aware the RHEL 8.6 Beta has been released yesterday so you can already
try running on top of it.
Rocky Linux announced they're already building 8.6 beta as well so it may
be possible to start testing on top of it soon as well.
