Benefit to Fedora

Enlightenment 0.17 will be easily installable in Fedora

Scope

Ideally, we would want to package up a few themes and optional extras but if all the packages filed for review were in the repo, that would be sufficient.

NOTE: If there is sufficient interest and participation, a Fedora Enlightenment spin could be released

How To Test

Once the packages are through the review process, we can test this easily. I will be setting up a temporary repo before that at http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/sundaram/enlightenment/

User Experience

  1. yum install @enlightenment should install the new desktop environment

Dependencies

  • All packages need to be reviewed and tested

Contingency Plan

  • Simply don't include the packages

Documentation

Upstream components has a number of man pages and HTML content that will be included within the packages

Release Notes

Enlightnment, 0.17, a new stable release of Enlightenment is now fully integrated in Fedora. <add more details here>
