Fedora Project Board Recap 2008-07-29



= Fedora Project Board Meeting :: Tuesday 2008-07-29 =

== Roll Call ==

Attendees: Tom Callaway, Matt Domsch, Paul Frields, Harald Hoyer, Jesse
Keating, Bill Nottingham, Chris Tyler, Seth Vidal, Karsten Wade

== Codecs (2008-05-13) ==
* Need to restart discussion on fedora-advisory-board redhat com to get
plans in place at the start of F10
* Chris Aillon to make contact with Bastien Nocera to find out what
current plans are 
* Waiting on bug 438225 to proceed
** this change will enable auto-provide for codec information
** For Fedora 10 removing Codeina and using the distribution's built-in
mechanism to install packages (if 438255) is implemented** For Fluendo
to continue to provide codecs to Fedora they will need to provide them
as packages in a yum repo 
** This errs on the side of more "free-ish" software
RESOLUTION:
# ACTION :: Paul - request feature page from developer
# FESCo should track bug 438225 since this falls into their mandate

== Updates (2008-07-15) ==
* Some board members are concerned that too many updates are being made to our stable releases
ACTIONS:
* Board request more information from FESCo on the following:
*# Statistics from bodhi about the number updates and bugs fixed
*# Regression statistics from bugzilla
*# Is there a policy against updating shared library versions in stable
releases?
* FESCo delivered statistics for updates
** Are these updates skewed by new packages?  (Spin-off issue, see
"Package Reviews" below)
* Board to review update statistics and discuss before further
consideration

== Privacy Policy (NEW) ==
* Tom's draft has been at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/TomCallaway/PrivacyPolicyDraft for two
weeks and comments have been handled
** We cannot guarantee FAS submitted email addresses' privacy because an
outside (non- fp o) email address must be used for Bugzilla
** No retention clauses exist in the draft, people should be able to
request a purge if they leave
* Voting application could be further refined to disconnect voting data
from accounts
* Board to reconsider policy for a vote
# ACTION :: Tom - Make change that allows email address to be public
# ACTION :: Tom - Add a retention policy
# ACTION :: Tom - Create Infrastructure ticket with details on
decoupling voting data from account data

== Package Reviews (NEW) ==
* Board wants to ensure FESCo is driving interest in package reviews
* Board also wants to ensure it is helping FESCo create an adequate
basis for getting that additional contributor help
** Queue is very lengthy, over 800 packages at last count
** This may drive update statistics
RESOLUTION:
# ACTION :: Paul - Request contributor to produce statistics for review
queue on a regular basis in Fedora Weekly news
# ACTION :: Karsten - On Docs team, drive priority wiki gardening of the
packaging and package review guidelines to make contributor uptake
easier

== Education Spin (NEW) ==
* Education spin trademark usage approval requested here:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2008-July/msg00141.html 
** Only Fedora software included
** This spin is a partnership between previously disparate groups
RESOLUTION:
# Board unanimously approves Education spin for use of "Fedora" marks.
