Detailed Description

Enlightenment 0.17 a new stable release has been released after 12 years or so of development. The goal is to include all of the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries, the Enlightenment window manager and the integrated apps like Terminology as part of Fedora.

Benefit to Fedora

Enlightenment 0.17 will be easily installable in Fedora


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

User Experience

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


  • All packages need to be reviewed and tested

Contingency Plan

  • Simply don't include the packages


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>
