So you probably heard that Fedora 15 is out. Woo!
And that means one thing: I'll be asking everyone endlessly for MOAR
FEATURES IN FEDORA 16.
Feature submission deadline, per my currently still-slightly-drafty F16
schedule page at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/16/Schedule
July 12. Feature freeze is July 26, which is when your feature should be
more or less testable, and significantly complete.
If you are wondering what constitutes a "feature", this wiki page is a
good place to start.
If you are planning on doing packaging of any sort of cloud-related
project, I would recommend starting to work on it *now*, including
getting your Feature moving through the Feature process. Now, I hear
that the person who usually runs the Cloud SIG meetings also happens to
be the Fedora Feature Wrangler as part of her $dayjob, and that she
might be a good person to ask if you have questions. (That's me, in case
you're wondering.) If you're not sure if what you have should be a
feature, my simple answer is that if it's new to Fedora, then, probably. :)
Also: If you're planning on doing any packaging of your favorite
project, please pipe up here! I'm sure everyone would love to hear about
what the plans are for F16. We've got plenty of people willing to help
out with reviews and packaging right now, so by all means, seize the
(Hint: CloudFS, Aeolus, CloudStack, and Eucalyptus folks, I'm looking at
you. Even if it's for F17. Do tell your plans. Please. :D)
If you've already got a feature in progress and a feature page to match,
please list it on the wiki page:
Note that we already have one in the pipeline, Sheepdog. (Thanks to
ke4qqq and sdake for working on this!)
