The live video stream from Ansible Contributor Summit 2022.04 is available for playback! Thanks to ziegenberg, we now have timestamps for the individual sessions as chapters in the video, so you can go directly to the presentations you're interested in, or might have missed. We will be sharing the rest of the info (talk details, slides, etc.) as well as the Contributor Survey next week. Thanks again to everyone for your participation and making it an amazing experience for all!

community.hrobot 1.3.0 has been released (changelog).

markuman said

community.aws 3.2.1 has been released.
The new parameter purge_tags in ec2_asg module, that was introduced in community.aws 3.2.0 with its default value true, possibly breaks existing playbooks for users if they don't update their playbooks and specify purge_tags: false. However, this release restores the previous behaviour.

If you are interested in using community.crypto in an Execution Environment, you might be interested in the discussion which cryptography library (quite old system libraries with FIPS enabled, or latest PyPi versions without FIPS) should the collection depend on: https://github.com/ansible-collections/community.crypto/pull/440#issuecomment-1100605304 If you have opinions on this, please comment!

cybette said

Your votes needed! Proposal: merge and adopt the procedures defined in Describe how collections can be removed from the Ansible package. Please vote in this issue (and not in the PR). The vote will close on 2022-04-27.
