Needs to be updated with notes about decisions for each topic.

  • the F11 EDU spin and mainly our plans for F12 (application discussion)
  • collaboration with POSSE
  • collaboration with Sugar Labs
  • collaboration with OLPC
  • collaboration with existing k12osn interest group (what is the difference between them and us?)
  • how to promote the spin to make people aware of it
    • explain the difference between fedora spin and kubuntu
    • mechanisms for getting enduser feedback?

Action items

  • mchua to ask mailing list to read f12 goals and add packages/feature requests to a list on the wiki, so we can make size-cutoff decisions once we see what each option would let us include
  • mchua ditto above for outreach ideas, and to make sure POSSE profs remain tightly in the loop for f12 spin development
  • sdziallas to keep SL in the loop
  • hanthana to ping mchua on #fedora on Monday to make feature-request survey to send to KarlieRobinson and Math4 class (and possibly others)
