So, I wish we'd noticed this sooner, but hacking at the release criteria
today I happened to notice a bit of a problem in the Fedora Server
The Server PRD states
"Fedora Server will produce two main installation resources, a
netinstall image and an offline install iso image that allows one to
install and configure featured roles offline. "
the Server tech spec states
"Fedora Server will run on and provide install media for i686, x86_64,
and armv7hl servers.
There will be two official install media for the Fedora Server
A network installation media (either a traditional netinst.iso or a
A local installation media providing the default package set as well
as any featured roles that are meaningfully installed without a network
The local installation media will be allowed a maximum size to
fit on a 4.0GB USB device.
The local installation media can be pointed at network resources
to make available a larger package set."
So...we're planning to release Server with ARM as a primary supported
arch, but so far we'd only planned to do two traditional install media
(a netinst image and a DVD-type 'trad installer plus packages' image).
Fedora ARM releases so far have emphasized disk image-type release media
much more strongly than installer release media, and I believe the ARM
installer media only work at all on one particular ARM platform.
So, the reward for work being more work ;), I've been nominated by
Server WG to liaise with ARM team on this one. What should we do here?
Is Server going to have to grow a set of ARM disk image media, or is
there any possibility of it being plausible to release Fedora 21 with
just installer-type images for ARM?
Looking at it in a bit wider scope, what kind of media has the ARM team
been expecting would be part of the Fedora 21 release? If, say, we did
make a set of images just like images done for Fedora releases so far -
the appropriate set of disk images plus installer media for whatever ARM
platforms are 'supported' - only had those be 'Fedora Server' media,
would it be OK to release those as the only Fedora 21 ARM images, or at
least the only official / promoted / supported / whatever set of images?
Or would ARM team also be expecting to have a 'generic' set of ARM
I realize that's a lot of questions, sorry! Any thoughts would be

So now I have some approximation of F20 running on my cubieboard2. So I
want to do a performance comparison, and simple BOGOmips from
/proc/cpuinfo probably does not tell the whole story of RISC vs CISC.
So is there a tool available for F20 on both that I can use?
Want to see what I have here.
Are we going to stay with 2014.04, or are we going to move to 2014.07 ?
The main reason I'm asking is because of Allwinner support. Currently
we (the linux sunxi community) are making good progress on getting
sunxi support into 2014.07, so if we're going to go with that then
I'm going to focus on that. But if we're going to stick with 2014.04
then I'll try to prep a patchset on top of what we already have to add
support for more boards.
