Mission Statement

The goal of the Modularity Working Group is to define and maintain the Fedora Base Module and guidelines and tools for other modules.

This includes releasing the Fedora Base Module in artifact form on a regular schedule — as a Docker base image, as an installable minimal system, and possibly in other ways in the future. This will not be a Fedora Edition, but rather be the thing people constructing custom versions of Fedora can start from — including both advanced end-users and Fedora Spins and Editions. (See interesting background discussion on the Fedora Server mailing list.)

So that modules are useful in the greatest number of situations, are fast to create and to deploy, and have the smallest possible security footprint, the Modularity Working Group will reduce package dependency trees, particularly in the Fedora Base Module.

The Working Group will also produce tooling for module production and maintenance, and guidelines for modules, as the FPC does for RPMs.

The effort will also require help and resources from across Fedora, including Fedora Infrastructure, Release Engineering, QA, Security Team, and more. Representatives of those groups should be included on the new Working Group. Also, proven packagers working as part of this effort will institute weak dependencies in a systematic manner, in cooperation with package maintainers.
