Fedora BoF at Ohio LinuxFest 2019

I held a Fedora Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) session at Ohio LinuxFest in Columbus, Ohio on November 1. Ohio LinuxFest is a regional conference for free and open source software professionals and enthusiasts. Since it’s just a few hours drive from my house, it seemed like an obvious event for me to attend. We had a great turnout and a lively conversation of the course of an hour.

Accommodating Flock in the release schedule

Jiří Konečný posted a request on the devel list a few weeks ago—he wanted to require a successful compose before the release is branched from Rawhide. As often happens, it’s not as simple as it seems on the surface, and the discussion eventually came around to not branching right after Flock.

This, too, isn’t as simple as it might seem. Changing one milestone in the schedule has impacts on the remaining milestones. We can make changes, of course, but we want to make sure we’re aware of the potential side effects. After discussing this with Mohan Boddu of the release engineering team, I have a few possible alternatives.

Fedora Modularity: What’s the Problem?

Much has been said about Fedora Modularity over the past couple weeks. Much of it has been constructive; some of it the expected resistance to change that all large features encounter. Some, however, is the result of our not having painted a good picture of the problems that Modularity aims to solve. Numerous suggestions have been made on the Fedora Development mailing list that sound good on the surface but that ultimately fail to address some important use-cases. This blog post will attempt to enumerate these cases in detail so as to serve as a common reference point for the ongoing discussions.

Please note as well that these are goals. There are numerous places where the implementation of Modularity at the time of this writing is not yet fully adherent to them.
