F8 Features--should they stay or should they go?




I would like to discuss the status of our features for F8 at tomorrow's FESCo meeting.
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/FeatureList

With Feature Freeze behind us on 2007-08-28 it is time to make some decisions about what should live on the final approved feature list. The feature policy is fairly clear about features that should be dropped.

see: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Policy#drop

In accordance with this policy it would not be out of line to drop features without recent updates or completion at 100%. Some of the more incomplete (less than 50%) or stale features are called out in red. Conversely if we follow this policy strictly, we will only have a few features for F8.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/8/FeatureList

The easiest way for me to proceed would be to simply follow the policy exactly as it reads, however I am sure there are cases where this would do more harm than good. On the other hand I have made repeated requests to some feature owners requesting updates with no reply. I also believe that for us to build a consistent release process we need to be consistent about doing what we say we are going to do--what is the point of having a policy that we don't really follow?

Question for FESCo--do I have your support to follow the policy and eliminate features not meeting the criteria or would we like an exception process? If we would like to implement an exception policy it should be simple enough to amend to our existing policy and for me to track :)

Thank you,
John
