I would like the Spin SIG members, current spin maintainers and other
enthusiasts to get together in #fedora-meeting at Tuesday, June 10th, at
18:00 UTC, so you are hereby invited to join us.
There's several items on the Agenda.
- How come we did not have Fedora 9 Spins of:
- Electronic Lab
The Electronic Lab does have a certain amount of people interested but
no one "accountable" maintainer, while there was a lot of exposure,
whereas the Developer spin did not get any maintenance, afaics.
Regardless, we will need to contact maintainers during the Alpha-Beta
time-frame to update their spins, or come up with a policy/guideline for
the maintainers to hold on to.
- Drafted policies
I've submitted the drafted policies for the Spin SIG to -devel, but
they did not get much feedback. We need to determine if they are
sufficient to enter the F10 development/release cycle with.
- The release process / spin process
Right now, we put in a request at the Release Engineering Team to
have certain spins spun. This may or may not be "golden" spins, but
regardless, I think we prefer to trigger building our own spins, and
then hand one over to Release Engineering, that can be released. Let's
talk about this at our meeting.
- Updates to kickstarts are submitted... where?
I think the spin-kickstarts GIT repository at fedorahosted.org needs
to have the latest kickstarts, whereas now developments still take place
in the livecd-tools GIT repository at fedorahosted.org. I've tried to
come up with a branching policy that makes development go into the
master branch, which we branch off for maintenance purposes every
release. I've also been thinking about a commit access policy, and I
think having commit access for at least the primary maintainers of each
spin makes the most sense.
- kickstarts RPM package for "Home Use"
A review request has been submitted for a "spin-kickstarts" package,
which I'd like you to look at and give some feedback on. This is to
enable people getting approved (by Spin SIG and Board) kickstarts to
their own computers in a controllable fashion.
If you have any other topics you want to discuss at the meeting, please
let me know; there's a bunch of kickstarts from Rahul that need
reviewing as well.
I hope to see you all so that we can accomplish something (and a little
more). I'm also planning to have a HackFest/BarCamp session at FUDCon in
Boston, in two weeks.
