== Followup to Previous Business ==

=== fedoraproject.org mail (2008-01-29) ===
 * Take steps to approach changes that were requested in the past
 * Could we create a better start and search page for Fedora mailing list?
 * ACTION: check back on status in one month
 * OWNER: Dennis Gilmore
 * '''FOLLOWUP 2008-02-26'''
   * Dennis has spoken with some people inside RHT IS
* should have no issues making a fedora branded interface to Red Hats mailman instance and having a @fedoraproject.org alias for fedora lists
   * existing lists will stay where they are
* could migrate all mailing lists to fedoraproject.org in time time if so desired
   * driving forces here is:
     1. making everything run Fedora
     1. break ties to RHT IS which does not make Fedora a priority
* fedoraproject.org email addresses lost four days of email a week ago and RHT did nothing to try and remedy the problem
   * '''FOLLOWUP on 2008-03-25'''
     * No update at this time
     * OWNER: Dennis needs to sit down and work things out with Red Hat IS

=== Post-release updates of custom spins (2008-01-29) ===
 * Should the board have to approve them?
 * We will hosts as many spins as we have space for
 * Need to determine the hosting requirements and limits

 * http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RahulSundaram/SpinsProcess
 * ACTION: Jef to review Rahul's proposal and report back to board
 * OWNER: Jef Spaleta
 * '''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
