Spins Process

Summary

  1. User submits a spin (kickstart and introduction) that complies with the Spins Guidelines to the Spins SIG mailing list at fedora-spins -at- lists.fedoraproject.org, and creates a Spin Page (from the New Spin Page Template).
    • This page is added to category Incomplete_Spins.
    • When the page is ready for review, the page is added to category Spins_Ready_for_Wrangler
  2. Spins Wrangler reviews the Spin Page
    • If accepted, adds it to category Spins_Ready_for_SIG and removes the page from categories Incomplete_Spins and Spins_Ready_for_Wrangler
    • If not accepted, removes the page from category Spins_Ready_for_Wrangler
  3. Spins SIG reviews the Spin
    • Review Checklist
    • Voting members of the Spins SIG are made up of representatives from: QA, Release Engineering, Infrastructure and FESCo
    • If the Spin is accepted by the Spins SIG, the page is added to category Spins_Ready_for_Board
    • If the Spin is not accepted by the Spins SIG, the page is removed from the Spins_Ready_for_SIG category, and goes back to category Incomplete_Spins
  4. The Fedora Project Board grants or denies Trademark approval
    • If the Fedora Project Board grants Trademark usage for the Spin, the Spin Page is added to category Spins_Fedora_X, and removed from category Spins_Ready_for_Board.
  5. After acceptance, notifications are sent to interested parties (Spins SIG responsibility):
    • The maintainer(s) submitting the Spin
    • Fedora QA
    • Fedora Release Engineering
    • Fedora Infrastructure
  6. Spin added to a wiki page containing a table listing all of the spins for Fedora X (very similar to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/11/FeatureList)
