Attendees: John Poelstra, Jesse Keating, Karsten Wade, Bill Nottingham, Matt Domsch, Chris Tyler, Seth Vidal, Paul Frields, Spot Callaway, Jef Spaleta
Regrets: Harald Hoyer
Followup to Previous Business
- Seth Vidal is going to meet with Richard Hughes to make sure a EULA associated with a specific package or codec works correctly with PackageKit and associated packages
- UPDATE 2008-09-23
- Fedora will only handle packages with EULAs through
- Fedora does not foresee ever having packages in the official Fedora repos that contain EULAs
- Remaining questions for follow-up:
- What is the regular work flow for codecs in F10 when someone goes to play a media file with a gstreamer enabled player?
- What will be the default behavior for a default installation?
- Can we confirm that we are no longer prompting for any specific vendor?
- Spot to track down answers to the remaining questions
- UPDATE 2008-09-30 from Spot
- In a default, fresh F10 install, if you go to play an mp3 file with a gstreamer enabled player, it will pop-up a helper
- On a default F10 system there will be nothing in the pop-up
- If you have an applicable third party yum repository configured, it will find the packages that provide the missing codecs and install them.
- Codeina will NOT be installed by default and should be removed from the Fedora 10 repository and obsoleted and blocked.
- There are no hooks to any third party vendors at this time.
- Spot will talk with PackageKit upstream about finding a way to included Fedora specific information which links to a Fedora wiki page on Fedora's stance on third party codecs
- Spot will work with package maintainer(s) to resolve the items noted above related to codeina
Trademark Update (2008-09-16)
