Fedora Project Board & FESCo Meeting :: Monday 2008-06-09

  • Attendees: Seth Vidal, Dennis Gilmore, Chris Aillon, Spot, Bill Nottingham, Karsten Wade, Jeff Spaleta, Matt Domsch, Máirín Duffy, Paul Frields, Jesse Keating, Jason Tibbits, Jeremy Katz, Josh Boyer, Christian Iseli, and John Poelstra


Proposed Approach

Possible Role of FESCo

  1. Software in Fedora--"if you affect the distro"
  2. Features
  3. Oversight of SIGs
  • No common agreement on this


  • Example of a SIG: KDE, Robotics, Astronomy, Python, $LANG
  • Not a SIG: Artwork, Ambassadors, Infrastructure
  • No Governance Model
  • Outreach-Oriented Groups
  • Nuts & Bolts Tech-Oriented
