Project Goals

The goal of this project is to provide a hosted application that will allow:

  • anyone to learn about what spins are and how to use them
  • users to be able to browse, download, and start using spins
  • developers to customize & build their own spins
  • spin reviewers to approve/deny incoming spin submissions
  • administrators to control the build process
  • Fedora project members to track and view metrics on which Spins are most popular

The overarching goal of spins is to make Fedora more accessible to folks who want to try it as it's a no risk way to 'install' Fedora, as well as to provide a mechanism for customizing Fedora for specific tasks to showcase its abilities (for example, the Electronics spin or the Art Studio spin.)
