Notes

Spins Wrangler

  • Bruno started writing a job description for spins wrangler, need to finish document
  • How much work is it?
    • From Nirik's work - 1-2 hours day / machine builds them every day
    • If a build breaks in rawhide, wrangler has to fix
    • A release-engineering style job
  • We need to figure out what spins are
    • Mega DVD put all desktop choices in GRUB. Not necessarily best approach, why not DE selection in GDM?
    • Two types of spins - Desktop Environments and Functional (Electronics, Design)
    • Does anyone practically use them? Issue with live usb eating itself when out of disk space
    • mdomsch added agenda item to FUDCon Tempe; Board should lead discussion on future of Spins and bring up at FUDcon
