Fedora 22 Alpha Release Readiness Meeting.
date: 2015-03-05 place: irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-2
time: 19:00 UTC (2 PM EST, 11 AM PST, 20:00 CET)
This Thursday, March 05, we will meet to make sure we are coordinated
and ready for the Alpha release of Fedora 22 on Tuesday, March 10, 2015.
Please note that this meeting will occur on March 05 even if the
release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two hours
You may received this message several times, but I was asked to open this
meeting to the teams and I'll also hope this will raise awareness and more
team representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams. We also have a badge!
The demo is up on my website.
We have tons of apps run by Fedora Infrastructure and a long-time
complaint is that they have inconsistent theming, and no chrome that
ties them together -- that makes them look like they're all part of
the same thing. Theming them consistently or adding a unifying chrome
would be awesome, but a very challenging and time-consuming task.
This little prototype is an attempt at making a single line of
that pulls up a menu taking you to other Fedora apps. It could
potentially display other information like "how to join!" and "don't
forget to book your tickets for Flock!" and.. etc. It falls short of
a unifying chrome, but I tried to make it simple enough that it won't
collide with the layouts and style of other pages.. something we could
actually deploy without exhausting ourselves.
It's a very rough early prototype, but how do people like the general
approach? Is anyone on this list interested in taking it and running
with it? The source is on github
A cool thing about it technologically is that it pulls its data for
the menu from the same source as the apps.fp.o landing page.
So, as we update that site, the menu will get auto-updated everywhere.
We can do other neat stuff like 'indicate the status of each app -- is
it working correctly at the moment or has the infra team marked it as
"down for maintenance"'.
