 * '''FOLLOWUP on 2008-02-12'''
* Jef is waiting for feedback from Jeremy Katz on release engineering's perspective * Reference: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ReleaseEngineering/Meetings/2008-feb-11 * People are still not clear on exactly what is required to create an official "Fedora Spin" * Need a clear list of guidelines of what a spin owner is responsible for and what they are required to test * Hoping a test will come from Jeremy Katz as part of feedback from release engineering * We are only talking about spins that use GA packages, thus testing for GA should have given us enough comfort that risk is minimized * We only need to be concerned with new combination of packages that a spin would present
* Paul Frields--followup with Fedora Release Engineering and QA contingent to discuss testing requirements * Jef Spaleta to formulate specific guidelines for review prior to or at next board meeting (dependent on feedback from release engineering)
  * '''FOLLOWUP on 2008-02-19'''
* Crux of issue right now is figuring out exactly what input release engineering is supposed to be giving
    * Jef will have a writeup to the board by next meeting
