    • Bodhi/2.0:
      • Masher improvements and optimizations
      • fedmsg integration & automation
      • New update creation widgets
      • Improved testing feedback widgets
      • Modern Fedora chrome
      • New frontpage dashboard
      • koji-mash integration (if ready)
      • OpenID authenticating bodhi command-line client
      • Configurable update policy controls
      • Adapt to meet new requirements for
    • Taskotron:
      • bodhi2 integration
      • create a more concrete gameplan for how qa machines fit in with the rest of Fedora infra
      • build/update gating based on taskotron results
        • Playground may end up being a good test bed for some parts but it would eventually require some integration with bodhi
  2. In addition, we will attempt to complete the following secondary goals as time allows:

Name Travel to FAD, departure Travel to FAD, arrival Travel from FAD, departure Travel from FAD, arrival Ticket cost
  1. Travel: $A for airfare, bus, train, etc. funding needed to get attendees to the FAD
    • Ralph, approximately $400
    • Dennis, approximately $200
    • Mathieu, approximately $1200

  2. Housing: $B for hotel, etc. needed to have attendees sleep during the FAD
    • Hotel booking site:
    • Hotel is $110 a night and is a 20 minutes walk from where we will be hacking. If everyone comes, 6 people will need lodging. We could get 2 rooms with 2 people in each and the 5th and 6th could crash on Luke's couch. If fewer come, we could do with just 1 room.
    • Total cost: $110 * 3 nights * 2 rooms = $660
  3. Space: $C for renting space to hack in, if applicable
    • We will be hacking at Luke's apartment building, at no cost to the FAD.
  4. Supplies: $D for anything else you may need
    • Nothing stands out. Just money for food. $25 per day * 8 people * 4 days = $800

Total budget: $3610
