My packages and wishlist for packages

  • RolandWolters
  • MatteoRicchetti
  • JeremySanders
  • TillMaas
  • ScottBaker

Random/Crazy Ideas

  • A yum counter plugin would be cool, to get some statistics on how much stuff is downloaded. Something like Debian's popcon.
  • Case stickers! Inspired by conversation on #fedora
  • Use alien on all Fedora packages and make dpkg Fedora
  • Continuous release: have a continuously updating "stable" repo built out of a development rawhide.
  • Continuous integration: constantly rebuild packages upon change, then oldest first. Kind of like mdomsch's rebuilds.
