Modular Server

Summary

The Modularity Working Group would like to propose using the modular infrastructure for creating and delivering the Fedora Server Edition for Fedora 27. While we are still working through some of the kinks leading up to the release of Fedora 26, we believe that the changes to the infrastructure and technology implementations will be available with sufficient time to harden the components in time for the 27 release.

Detailed Description

The modularity effort is fairly well known and significantly more information may be found on the wiki or the YouTube Channel. In short, modularity is attempting to disconnect the lifecycle of applications from 1) each other 2) the operating system while still maintaining the ease of use of a typical Linux Distro.

This change proposal is to release modularity into the mainline of Fedora.

Benefit to Fedora

Scoping the question to this Change Proposal, the benefit to Fedora is to release the multi-lifecycle model for real users. We can prove that most day-to-day operations will be unchanged and that users can opt in to more advanced use cases.

      • modularize a significant amount of the content available for Fedora Server
      • define tools and best practices for implementing modules and keeping them up to date
  • Other developers: N/A (not a System Wide Change)
