Hi everyone. The Fedora Council holds monthly video-based meetings
where we host a report from one of our various subprojects or official
objectives. This month, Langdon White presented on Modularity.
If you're a Fedora contributor busy in other areas and haven't paid
much attention, you might be wondering what Modularity is, exactly.
Modularity is an effort to address the "moves too fast! moves too
slow!" issue that affects all operating systems, and an outgrowth of
Fedora.next and a sort of descendant of the "Environments and Stacks"
part of my "Fedora Rings" proposal from 2013.
This is a really nice, easy-to-understand presentation putting forward
the goals of the initiative, the current state, and where we hope to
have it for the upcoming Fedora 26 release and Fedora 27 later this
year. If you package software in Fedora — and, particularly, something
like a language or application stack where Fedora users might benefit
from choosing between several supported versions — I really recommend
checking this out.
