Fedora Project Board Meeting (2007-05-01)

  • IRC only, no telephone conference


Role Call

  • Present: mspevack, blizzard, skvidal, stickster, jeremy, notting, mdomsch
  • Absent: rdieter, mether, gregdek

FESCO/Board/Sub-project governance starting with F8

  • Lengthy discussion about what FESCO's role and responsibilities should be
  • Read the IRC log (below) for all the juicy discussion
  • Lots of ideas discussed, no hard decisions reached
  • Post your thoughts to the list

EPEL

  • bpepple: I don't believe there's anything FESCo needs decided right now by the Board.
  • political problems right now with some 3rd party repos/packager's request that we add repotags--knurd will report to the list in a week or so

Other Topics for Discussion

  • Merge happening at noon Wednesday
  • PPC box is on the way to the data center, the x86 builder is already there but not racked AFAIK (mmcgrath).
  • f13 has started a thread where people recommend names for the release? Ie: Bordeaux, Zod, ???
  • mdomsch comments briefly on Dell's going to pre-isntall ubuntu
  • the decision was easy: look at dellideastorm.com, and 80% of the people on there asked for Ubuntu
  • we only have the resources to factory install one, but we'll post links to other Distro's web pages that list certifications, if they exist

Next meeting

  • No board meeting next week due to RH Summit in San Diego.
  • TBD
