Spin SIG meeting (Tue Jun 10, 18:00 UTC)

Hello there,

I would like the Spin SIG members, current spin maintainers and other enthusiasts to get together in #fedora-meeting at Tuesday, June 10th, at 18:00 UTC, so you are hereby invited to join us.

There's several items on the Agenda.

- How come we did not have Fedora 9 Spins of:
  - XFCE
  - Electronic Lab
  - Games
  - Developer

The Electronic Lab does have a certain amount of people interested but no one "accountable" maintainer, while there was a lot of exposure, whereas the Developer spin did not get any maintenance, afaics. Regardless, we will need to contact maintainers during the Alpha-Beta time-frame to update their spins, or come up with a policy/guideline for the maintainers to hold on to.

- Drafted policies

I've submitted the drafted policies[1] for the Spin SIG to -devel, but they did not get much feedback. We need to determine if they are sufficient to enter the F10 development/release cycle with.

- The release process / spin process

Right now, we put in a request at the Release Engineering Team[2] to have certain spins spun. This may or may not be "golden" spins, but regardless, I think we prefer to trigger building our own spins, and then hand one over to Release Engineering, that can be released. Let's talk about this at our meeting.

- Updates to kickstarts are submitted... where?

I think the spin-kickstarts GIT repository at fedorahosted.org[3] needs to have the latest kickstarts, whereas now developments still take place in the livecd-tools GIT repository at fedorahosted.org[4]. I've tried to come up with a branching policy that makes development go into the master branch, which we branch off for maintenance purposes every release. I've also been thinking about a commit access policy, and I think having commit access for at least the primary maintainers of each spin makes the most sense.

- kickstarts RPM package for "Home Use"

A review request has been submitted for a "spin-kickstarts" package[5], which I'd like you to look at and give some feedback on. This is to enable people getting approved (by Spin SIG and Board) kickstarts to their own computers in a controllable fashion.

If you have any other topics you want to discuss at the meeting, please let me know; there's a bunch of kickstarts from Rahul that need reviewing as well[6].

I hope to see you all so that we can accomplish something (and a little more). I'm also planning to have a HackFest/BarCamp session at FUDCon in Boston[7], in two weeks.

Kind regards,

Jeroen van Meeuwen
