Mission

The Fedora Mini SIG is a group of Fedora contributors that are interested in Fedora on small devices. Initially aimed at ensuring that the hardware used in devices such as Netbooks and Mobile Inter Devices (MIDs) work out of the box with Fedora. Eventually, we may also include and build a spin which is targeted at these devices through the use of another user interface experience. It could also be used to produce various spins for Gnome Mobile development, Intel's Moblin project, Hildon etc

Current Aims

  • Stock Fedora working on current Netbook and MID hardware
  • (F11) A spin of Fedora targeted for some of these smaller devices
  • A reduction in dependencies to produce a small usable netbook install (Asus eeePC 701 comes with 2Gb Flash)

Devices

Some of the devices include:

Joining the SIG

Joining the Fedora Mini SIG is as simple as being part of Fedora. Once you are a contributor to Fedora, you can join the SIG by adding your name above and communicating with the rest of the team in the usual Fedora channels .

How you can help

If you have no idea how to help us, here are some proposals where we need help:

  • Packagers: There are so many interesting packages that are not yet packaged for Fedora. Package it to improve the user experience.
  • Reviewers: Only a few people are doing reviews. Help us with reviews so that more packages could be included.
  • Testers: If you have a small device and use Fedora on it file bugs and add them as a blocker for the Fedora Mini Tracker Bug
  • Bugs: Become a BugZapper and help us with Fedora Mini related bugs.

Getting reviews

When submitting a Fedora Mini package for review please attach it to the Tracker Bug
