As Software Collections are getting popular, there are more and more people asking how they can build their own collections and/or extend collections in RHSCL. In this article, I will demonstrate how to extend python27 collection from RHSCL 1.2, adding a simple Python extension library. (Note that the same steps can be applied to the python33 collection.) I’m going to work on a RHEL 6 machine throughout this whole tutorial. I’m assuming that readers have basic knowledge of RPM building and Software Collections concept.

We recently announced that we’ve made available a set of Dockerfiles for Red Hat Software Collections. We are making these available since we think they may be useful to customers looking to build more complex application containers on top of RHEL and RHSCL. We don’t intend the Dockerfiles to produce useful standalone images which you’ll immediately put in production – the Docker images which these create are very simple containers which give you RHEL plus the basic set of packages from a particular RHSCL collection.
There are two different ways to get your hands on the Dockerfiles:
- From the upstream source at github
- From a new package, rhscl-dockerfiles, which we’ve shipped in the RHSCL channels – both for RHEL6 and RHEL7

Typically, the two biggest impediments to scaled agile and DevOps are over planning (including over thinking) and dogmatism. Which projects should we “pilot” for scaled agile, how long should the pilot run, what are the details of how we will implement, etc., etc. Of course, this over-thinking ultimately impedes the type of progress that scaled agile hopes to achieve in driving business results.
But what if you don’t over think and intentionally decide to be agile about being agile? How much faster can you move? What if I don’t have all of my rituals figured out to the nth degree and risk forgetting something crucial? Is it too risky?
Over the next several posts, we’ll share with you our experiences in taking a large strategic initiative from a waterfall approach to scaled agile in just a few weeks. The initiative scope was a targeted nine-month system and process integration effort to drive business transparency and, ultimately, business value. Impacted were: five business systems; six independent global development teams; and numerous business stakeholders that spanned the globe.

Red Hat’s David Egts has assembled this handy article on how to get started with open source.
Open source code drives collaborative innovation from a larger pool of developers at a lower cost, which is why federal agencies are adopting the “open source first” model. In fact Sonny Hashmi, CIO of the General Services Administration, recently announced that implementing open source software is among his top priorities this year.
So what’s the best way to increase your agency’s adoption of open source software and keep it secure? Here are six tips to get you there:
