What about an Objective to understand if IoT is a thing for Fedora to
pursue? Maybe a shorter one, e.g. 6 months, with metrics like:
a) delivered and evaluated a survey of fedora comm members and interest is n
b) what kind of changes would need to be made to infrastructure tooling?
c) what is the best model for such a pursuit: SiG, Edition, something else?
I suppose SiG could also do this, but, in my mind, a SiG is "we want to
pursue this interest, irrelevant of the interests of Fedora at large" (which
I mean *very* positively, despite the writing sounding negative). I would
think this Objective would be "Let's get Fedora to concentrate on this
subject, at large, because reasons"
SiG could also be a staging place to see if it has teeth, but then
that also depends if it has backing and organisation. Some SiGs
progress well because they have backing (some arch sigs, server SIG
etc) where some tend to languish and while possibly successful in
their niche they never get massively wide interest.
