Iraf it's used by great part of the astronomical community 18:18 marek and would be a I killer application. Could you rise the question in 18:18 marek the meeting? 18:18 marek </paste> 18:18 marek this is a good proposition but will involve a lot of work 18:18 Telimektar a new item for the todo list 18:18 Telimektar it also involves getting in contact with the iraf community 18:19 marek yes 18:19 marek we should discuss it on the mailing list first 18:19 Telimektar yes 18:19 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Fedora Astronomy SIG | Free discussion, mind storming 18:19 marek ok, all other business 18:19 Telimektar you've talked about skylive.it 18:20 marek yes, this is an interesting project 18:20 Telimektar and python module that it needs 18:20 marek you can take photos from scopes over the globe 18:20 marek Telimektar: it needs about 10 python modules that are not in fedora yet 18:20 marek I don't have the list yet, but it should be somewhere on their web 18:20 Telimektar ok, i didn't found soure on their website 18:20 Telimektar source* 18:20 marek or even find it from code 18:22 marek http://download.astronomix.org/skylive/SkyLiveNG-0.1b.tgz 18:22 marek here is it 18:22 Telimektar ok thanks, i'll take aloot on it and make a summary of needs on the ml 18:22 Telimektar a look * 18:22 marek Telimektar: thank you 18:23 marek next item, is getting the packages in EPEL as well 18:23 Telimektar why not 18:24 marek I would like to distribute the Fedora Astronomy spin on a usb stick 18:24 marek people would be able to order it for small price 18:24 marek like 3 euros with the post 18:25 Telimektar mhm, why not 18:25 marek Telimektar: did you saw the persistance feature? 18:25 Telimektar i'm sure som magazines can be interested in this too 18:25 Telimektar marek: i've read a little about it 18:25 marek Telimektar: it's very nice 18:25 marek that way, you can keep your data from observation on the key itself 18:26 Telimektar how do you want to sell the usb stick? 18:28 marek I thought of a web form, something like free media program 18:28 Telimektar ok 18:29 marek I'll try to save some money and get about 300 free for local observatory etc... 18:29 marek and if we are really good, maybe Red Hat will be willing to pay for it too :) 18:29 spoleeba > [n=one fedora/Jef] joins #fedora-meeting 18:29 marek heyah spoleeba :) 18:29 Telimektar from your own pocket ?

18:34 marek Telimektar: yup, I had a showstopper on this 18:34 marek spoleeba: kind of, in next two months we can start doing the initial kickstart file 18:35 marek Telimektar: but I've found a way how to create this menu 18:35 spoleeba marek, make sure you look at the guidance from the new Spins SIG 18:35 marek spoleeba: yes, I know it 18:35 Telimektar marek: can't we base it one the games-menus rpm ? 18:35 marek Telimektar: no, the games menus are using standard GNOME categories 18:36 Telimektar ok 18:36 marek games have sub-cats in gnome, that's no the case of other menus 18:36 marek spoleeba: we will have first only a beta kickstart file 18:36 marek spoleeba: I want to release it all little bit after Fedora 10 18:37 marek do we have date for Fedora 10 yet? 18:37 Telimektar i don't think so 18:38 marek spoleeba: do we have the final version of the spins process? 18:38 Telimektar do you have a link to this ? i do not know about it 18:39 marek I saw a proposition on wiki somewhere, but was told by the Board it's still in progress 18:39 marek https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JefSpaleta/SpinReleaseProcessProposal 18:39 Telimektar thx 18:40 spoleeba marek, of the entire process.. i dont think so 18:41 marek spoleeba: good to have you on the project, you can review it before we propose it to the board itself 18:41 spoleeba marek, but i think the guidance as to what is/is not allowed is mostly there 18:44 marek spoleeba: do you the link to the guidance? 18:45 spoleeba no... let me find it 18:46 spoleeba there's a wiki re-org going on as well...which impact things 18:47 spoleeba http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Spins/CommunitySpinGuidelines 18:48 marek /!\ Fixing packages or applications on the Spin is not allowed. A fix goes upstream. 18:49 marek this mean fix goes to Fedora (upstream here?) 18:49 marek ? 18:52 spoleeba marek, i think it means... not making changes in the Spins kickstart file 18:53 spoleeba that should go in a package...and submitted upstream 18:53 marek spoleeba: ok, understood 18:53 marek anything else we want to discuss? 18:53 spoleeba the idea being...don't screw with things like default config settings via kickstart script action..even though you can 18:54 Telimektar it's ok for me 18:54 Telimektar what are the tasks assignment for now on ? 18:54 marek spoleeba: we were thinking about a different wallpaper 18:55 spoleeba kickstarts are very flexible...and to keep all or spins consistent..we have to refrain from doing some things that kickstart can easily do 18:55 marek Telimektar: I think, from now on, we should create a TODO list wiki page, with the name of the person working on it and final date 18:56 marek spoleeba: yup, I see 18:56 spoleeba marek, get it packaged as a package so anyone else can use it 18:56 spoleeba marek, i think theming differences are allowed..i think games does it already 18:56 marek spoleeba: it would be part of the wallpaper package, but we will have to mess with the default config to set it 18:56 marek spoleeba: ok 18:58 marek spoleeba, Telimektar any other business you would like to raise? 18:58 giallu > [n=giallu 81-174-9-190 dynamic ngi it] joins #fedora-meeting 18:58 spoleeba marek, i dont think so 18:59 Telimektar ok for me 18:59 marek ok closing this meeting 18:59 marek that you both for coming 18:59 marek changed the topic of #fedora-meeting to: Channel is used by various Fedora groups and committees for their regular meetings | Note that meetings often get logged | For questions about using Fedora please ask in #fedora | See http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Communicate/FedoraMeetingChannel for meeting schedule 18:59 Telimektar thanks all, see you on the list ! 19:00 marek see you!
