The mellanox.onyx collection is considered unmaintained and will be removed from Ansible 8 if no one starts maintaining it again before Ansible 8. See the removal process for details on how this works.

The Ansible Collection Grafana has started a discussion on Github around the possibility to merge with the recently created collection for Grafana Cloud (by Grafana Labs).

If you are using the collection, we would like to have your feedback!

galactory (the Ansible Galaxy proxy for Artifactory) has released version 0.6.0 [changelog] adding the ability to prevent anonymous collection uploads while retaining upstream proxy caching.

briantist shared

galactory has released version 0.7.0 [changelog] with a potentially breaking change to how properties are set. Some incorrectly configured reverse proxies break with the new method. A new option is available to fall back to the previous method, which requires a Pro license.
