Owner

Current status

  • Last updated: 26. 3. 2014
  • Tracker bug: <will be assigned by the Wrangler>

Detailed Description

Benefit to Fedora

Cool programs depending on specific version of software can still run on Fedora. We see it often with Ruby (on Rails) projects like Puppet, Cloud projects (Katello, Foreman, OpenShift, OpenStack). All those cool apps can run on any Fedora, which will provide collection for them.

New versions of software can be also packaged as collection and tested it before inclusion into main Fedora repository in case the new version would seem to be to disruptive for rest of the system.

Scope

0. Approve SCL guidelines by FPC

1. Include at least one collection into Fedora Playground repository or into main Fedora repository (probably the one wanted by Cloud WG). It might be this one rebuild for Fedora http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/rhscl/ruby193/. Updates of some gems or addition of other gems might be needed. Review by Cloud projects is needed.
