As an added note, the following Feature pages have not been updated. They need to be updated before Beta or they will be dropped as Features:

  • FESCo approved Bernie Innocenti as a sponsor. Dennis Gilmore volunteered to guide Bernie in his sponsor activities as he comes up to speed. Congrats to Bernie and Thanks to Dennis.


  • The MinGW discussion was delayed until next week. This was at the request of Richard Jones, and also as a result of light attendance from the FESCo members due to the Linux Plumbers Conference or other unavoidable reasons.

'make force-tag'/TAG_OPTS=-F

  • nirik brought the force-tag/TAG_OPTS=-F discussion again in light of new information and further discussion on the lists. A proposal to add back 'make force-tag' was not approved due to lack of consensus (proposal #1). A second proposal to add back TAG_OPTS=-F was approved (proposal #2). Dennis Gilmore will add TAG_OPTS back to the makefile.

      • For: j-rod, nirik, jwb, jds2001
      • Against: dgilmore
      • Absent: dwmw2, kick_, notting, bpepple

      • For: j-rod, nirik, jwb, jds2001, dgilmore (majority vote of FESCo)
      • Absent: dwmw2, kick_, notting, bpepple


  • There was a brief discussion on what the status of Codina was. FESCo would like to find out what the plan for Codina is and will revisit this next week.
