Sarah: I finally got around to opening a PR that will allow us to test PRs from forks on staging before merging, looking for reviews! jupyterhub/mybinder.org-deploy#2002
Erik: I’ve deployed Z2JH on Raspberry Pi OS cluster of computers running k3s :D
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.
Poga: A 1-click install setup for JupterHub on AWS with AWS CDK, based on Z2JH
Erik: YuviPanda’s work to make yuvipanda/jupyterhub-ssh available, a package and associated Helm chart to access servers via SSH and/or to access the user servers storage with SFTP assuming it is exposed via a NFS server. Demo later.
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.
Simon: Repo2docker release
Need to decide where and how to publish Docker images now that Docker Hub automated builds have stopped
Any merges to r2d in the last few weeks have not been deployed to mybinder.org since there’s no new image builds
What are JupyterHub/z2jh doing? Can we standardise?
Building and pushing manually in GHA. JupyterHub-bot (service account) has a token for auth. Do we create a Jupyter-org service account and add it? We have more maintainers than allowed already. Can’t have more than a single token either.
lots of complexity and “crowdedness” already which makes doing anything tricky
we control the “jupyterhub” account on quay.io
no opposition to and support for moving to quay.io
need to work out the details of the migration, redirecting people who are using docker hub, etc
after a year or so of production use in mybinder.org
nice readme! great for oboarding new maintainers which is important for a move like this
erik asked about jupyterlab support/maintenance status of the project?
jupyter lab 2 and 3
supports all :D
can we transition this to the jupyterhub github team?
no objections to moving
is this too technical for a Jupyter Enhancement Proposal (JEP)?
what (unexpected) consequences will this have? what existing things will it effect?
Need more ideas/understanding/discussion around what this would mean and what would change before being able to give feedback.
Right now it is hard to think about this right now
Is there a prototype/demo in a repo somewhere? This would help get the discussion started because there is something to look at
Several people would like to hear Min’s thoughts on this
Erik: Demo of yuvipanda/jupyterhub-ssh
Accessing a deployment server via SSH
Accessing a deployment server’s storage (backed by NFS) via SFTP
Several minds were blown by this :D
See yuvipanda/jupyterhub-ssh#55 for rsync and scp and such support
Erik: Jupyterhub org members, require 2FA
there are five members of the org who don’t have 2FA enabled
support for enforcing 2FA? no opposition and a good security practice
ping the people on GitHub but don’t need to wait forever for them to do it
if someone isn’t super active it probably isn’t a big deal if they lose access for a few days
