General spin question

  • (mmcgrath) Who approves different spins?
    • Mike would like to treat net install like a spin and make a page for it, post-F12
    • Spins could potentially move to mirror space soon now that we have more space
    • (group answer) The spins SIG does technical approval, and the Board approves trademarks
    • The purpose is to better market the net installation ISO for general use
  • No Board action needed, just FYI and information gathering
