fedora summit, day 1.5 [Nov. 13th, 2006|09:14 pm]
[Location |westford, ma]

Here's my update for the rest of Day 1, which I expect (hope) that several other folks will blog about later tonight. So I'm just going to touch on a subset of stuff.

First off -- I've updated the Fedora Summit page as much as I can based on our agenda, etc, and we've got people who have committed to getting some photos of the white boards, the full IRC log, and some extra notes that were taken off-line up on to the wiki later tonight.

We started the afternoon session with a discussion about source control, which moved into a discussion about getting rid of Fedora Core and Fedora Extras, and moving to one unified Pile of Packages. The branding discussion is still upcoming, so I'm not going to use any official name yet. :-)

In short, there's a couple of directions that we can proceed immediately:

1) Get our notes on this topic up on the wiki ASAP, and allow everyone to read it and think about it.
2) Get into the FAMSCO meeting this coming Thursday and talk further with that group, make sure we're all understanding each other, etc.
3) Start taking packages that are currently in Core and submitting those packages for consideration in Fedora Extras. We do this for whatever packages we can, currently.

At this point, we'll reach a place where we're blocking on some work that needs to happen on the build system (which was another of our topics today). So as that work progresses, we'll be able to consider more and more packages for our external builds system, and that's the baby steps process that we need to be thinking about.

Anyway, that's all for now. I'm going to wait a couple hours and see what other people are saying, and I might chime in later. Give us some time to get our notes from today on the wiki, and start looking that all over. We're very interested to hear what the community thinks on fedora-advisory-board and fedora-devel-list.

Here's the place to start -- the Opening Core page on the wiki.
