Reports and celebrations#
This is a place to make announcements (without a need for discussion). This is also a great place to give shout-outs to contributors! We’ll read through these at the beginning of the meeting.
Distinguished Jupyter contributors announced: https://blog.jupyter.org/congratulations-distinguished-contributors-149deff3033c
Erik & Z2JH 1.0.0 release!
Let’s collect all potential agenda items here before the start of the meeting. We will then attempt to create a coherent agenda that fits in the 60m meeting slot. If there are similar items try and group them together.
Erik Sundell JupyterHub Helm chart 1.0.0-beta.1 / 1.0.0
Isabela Presedo-Floyd (10 min) What’s the status on binderhub #1287? What can I do to support a solution for the communities blocked by the bad (comments on the original issue)
Issue for context: jupyterhub/binderhub#1287
Alternate PR: jupyterhub/binderhub#1309
Supply build token for requests that come from our pages (not the
/buildAPI) and exclude requests that don’t have this token
Work towards all federation members signing/reading JWTs
Samuel Gaist JupyterHub for a reproducible research platform (more context)
Hook in kubespawner that allows you to modify the pod that’s about to be launch before it’s launched (?)
Yuvi berkeley-dsep-infra/datahub not my code, please don’t judge (copied from chat)
Many things can be set as Callables, rather than values, so can be modified for specific users
Multi-authentication paradigm: remote user auth, lightweight authenticator that only accepts requests that originate from your ingress point, get username from a header set by that proxy, make another API request to get further info
Jupyter Enterprise Gateway: you have a notebook server, and now you want to launch one notebook in an evironment
Min RK (5m) repo2docker conda-lock and micromamba
Simplifies freeze step, faster builds
conda-lock only works with conda packages, no pip. solution is to make the pip install a separate step (with separate requirements.txt)
should save time, related to package installs
no longer need to bootstrap a root env for the notebook server. Instead, download a single binary file.
right now we create a root environment, then another one for the notebook server and maybe another for a kernel (e.g. Python 2)
may cause conflicts since they both touch package installs
what are our promises about conda/mamba availability to users?
micromamba can install both conda and mamba
Tim thinks providing a
condaexecutable out of the box makes sense for backwards compatibility/least surprise
Min RK (10m) roles and scopes are ready for main: jupyterhub/jupyterhub#3438
Yuvi (5m) Common Grafana Dashboards for JupyterHub yuvipanda/jupyterhub-grafana
Min this sounds amazing!
