From Fedora Project Wiki


The purpose of this SIG is to discuss the future SCM technology and model going forward with the Fedora Project's source code. Once a solution has been chosen, designed, and implemented the SIG will disband.


We are currently working on the first stage of the process, defining the goals that the new SCM is trying to help us achieve. Discussion is happening on the fedora-devel-list mailing list with weekly IRC updates in the Fedora Infrastructure Meeting at the #fedora-admin channel in IRC. We are likely to make some decisions at the FudCON Hackfest Feb 3-4.


See the Meetings page.
