This page catalogs unfinished board business.

For each issue we need filter each issue through this criteria:

  1. Have we resolved the issue?
    • If so, where?
    • If not, why not?
  2. Was the answer complete enough?

Issues

Issues should live in one of the two sections below:

Addressed Issues

  • What is the target audience for the Fedora Distribution? (Paul)
    • (reference Paul's response) http://lwn.net/Articles/358865/
    • This decision needs a stand-alone wiki page for ready reference--we shouldn't be referring to mail archives for things like this
    • User base - done
  • What is the Board's role?
    • Set a defining vision for the Project and enable other groups to work toward it, without excluding those who want to do other things
  • (Combined) Issues with spins (Can spins change enough of the distro, "target audience")
  • Is there a default spin?
    • Yes, the default offering is the "Live Desktop" image
  • Does letting thousands of contributors do what they want have a negative impact on our OS? (Mike)
