  • Link to NewPackageProcess in account system mail. Tricky due to generic nature of account system (which needs to remain as Fedora expands). Elliot to explore
  • Sample NewPackageProcess document. Not done yet.
  • NewPackageProcess vetting. Has been done, looks good with a few minor tweaks from spot and mschwendt.
  • creating branches. No progress.
  • sudoers. Fixed
  • Mail on commit to a contributors' module this has dependencies on other larger changes to the package submission process, so we're going to lower the priority until those happen.
  • New package submission process. Dave thinks some of this can be done pretty simply with bugzilla, he's going to mock up some bugs with the current db.
  • Write up of package review guidelines. These are up at PackageReviewGuidelines as a first pass. Additional comments and suggestions welcome.
  • Sponsor nominations. Question of people not being aware that they can do reviews without being a sponsor. Discussion on how to make this more clear.
  • Ed Hill nominated and approved.
  • Greg/Sopwith/Jeremy working issues with external access to machines in colo to make it easier to move things forward there.
  • Buildsystem update
  • Build boxes updated to FC4
  • New buildsys installed on them
  • Can't test new buildsys without shutting down the old so some downtime will be required.
  • Going to shoot for this weekend
  • revamp
  • Work is ongoing by dfong and hrishi and hopefully it'll be able to go live next week.
