"Tom "spot" Callaway"
Default Fedora Packaging Committee Meeting Summary - September 1 2010

Summary of the September 1, 2010 meeting of the Fedora Packaging Committee

Minutes (text):

Tom Callaway [CHAIR] (spot)
Jon Ciesla (limburger)
Ralf Corsepius (racor)
Rex Dieter (rdieter)
Toshio Kuratomi (abadger1999)
Jason Tibbitts (tibbs|h)

= D Packaging Draft=

We discussed the D packaging draft, but there were still some remaining
concerns. It was unclear as to how the %{d_optflags} were actually
passed to ldc, as this is not illustrated in the template. In addition,
it was agreed that it would be helpful for the FPC to see an example
package which meets the guidelines proposed in the draft.

= Bundled Library Draft =

We also discussed the Bundled Library Guidelines draft changes. They
were amended slightly to require that packages which have approved
exceptions also include a comment documenting this fact.

This draft was unanimously approved (6 +1, no 0, no -1).

= Should FESCo need to ratify FPC approvals? =

The FPC considered the question of whether it needed FESCo to ratify FPC
approvals. Tom Callaway explained that when the FPC was created,
because it was initially a group with himself as the only membership, he
set it up that all FPC changes would require FESCo ratification, and it
has evolved from that to the present.

After discussions of the merit and risks of ratification vs
independence, the chair proposed the following change:

The FPC will no longer require FESCo ratification of approved
drafts/changes, however, any FPC member who feels an approved
draft/change would benefit from explicit FESCo review and
ratification may request it.

This change was unanimously approved (6 +1, no 0, no -1).

In accordance with this change, Jason Tibbitts and Jon Ciesla requested
that the Bundled Library Guidelines draft be sent to FESCo for
ratification (because FESCo had requested it).

= Static Libraries and PIC =

The issue of handling static libraries and PIC was raised again.
It was not known whether it is possible to determine whether a static
library is PIC or not, Tom will follow up on this issue and the ticket
will be revisited at the next meeting.

= Next Meeting =

The next meeting of the Fedora Packaging Committee will be on September
8, 2010 at 1600 UTC.
