Recently, I have been able to dedicate substantially more of my time to
the modularity objective. Red Hat is also dedicating other people to
moving the objective forward. Both I and the others expect to be able to
continue to dedicate time for the foreseeable future. As a result, I
wanted to send out this update about what we have done over the past
couple weeks and seek feedback. I also plan to send out these updates
regularly, probably monthly, or more often, if we have something
specific we would like feedback on.
First off, we have updated the Modularization wiki page on the Fedora
wiki with things we know and things we think about modularity. The
biggest example being "what is a module."
Next, we are due to review the modularity objective with the Fedora
Council on March 14th. As a result, we have put together a new phase
proposal. One of the major components is a proposal about
restructuring a couple of the working groups. I’d appreciate your
comments and feedback on this proposal before we submit it to the Council.
I also started a blog post series on community blog. The first
post went out this past Tuesday.
Lastly, we did a Q&A for the Server WG earlier this week. Mizmo did a
great writeup and you can also read the "real" logs.
Engineering work is starting but we are still getting organized. The
next update will include more details about how you can get involved.
However, if you have ideas now, please feel free to add user stories.
