Introduction

The web interface is targeted towards people creating Fedora Spins and Remixes. It will use the existing tools like livecd-creator and pungi to create the actual images. Initial target is just live images. It will be a 100% free and open source web application.

Candidates (In order of preference):

  • dorrie 1 2 (Transliterated word, no specific spelling exists)
  • potpourri
  • almanac
  • composer
  • weaver

Current Status

* Imported Comps into a mysql database.

* Hostname
* Default username
* root password, user password
* home directory content
* Custom Packages
* Image type: ISO, virt image, raw disk
