From Fedora Project Wiki

Revision as of 16:20, 17 July 2010 by Bruno (talk | contribs) (Add git repo)

The Spins Special Interest Group reviews, tests and approves Fedora Spins. Participants in this SIG are delegates from QA, Release Engineering, the Fedora Project Board, Infrastructure and FESCo as well as spin owners.

What is it we do?

The purpose of the Spins SIG is to oversee the development of an evolving set of technical best practises to be applied to all community spin concepts. The Spins SIG will also oversee the continued maintenance of approved community spins in the Kickstart Pool, and will regulate the use of any infrastructure as it becomes available for use for the Spins SIG. For example webspace at will be made available for spin descriptions. New spin concepts first come to the Spins SIG for discussion and technical review. Once the Spins SIG comes to a consensus as to technical merit, the benefit to Fedora, and the overall feasibility of a proposed spin, that spin concept is passed to the Board for final trademark approval.

Wish List

  • A way to install spins into an existing install.
    • What exactly this would mean needs to be worked out first.
      • Just packages and no special setup?
      • Would this just add packages to the current install, or possibly remove some?
      • Would there be any way to remove a spin once it was installed?
