Few notes about FedoraOS Server Platform ( FOSSP )
Which touches serveral topics we have been discussing.
Hey. Quite a document. ;)
Is FOS (Fedora OS) the product from our base working group?
Or something else?
I'd not list some of those specific things FOSSP 'consists' of, as they
may be decided by the base working group. Perhaps we switch from dracut
to something else someday, etc. Additionally, some of them are subject
I'll say again that I don't think we should provide kickstarts.
Additionally, I don't think we should try and provide images for every
featured stack. I'd prefer something like the netinstall iso with
anaconda tweaked for server use, and groups for package stacks.
We should talk with the Cloud WG and confirm what stuff they want to
handle and what they would like us to handle as well.
I like the idea of getting something/fedup to provide some kind of
'before upgrade' report that can point out problems.
The server roles section has a number of things that should be debated
before being decided on, IMHO. For an inital f21 timeframe we should
again look at just a few, IMHO.
Service packs sound interesting, but need more information to say for
sure. Are you seeing this as something like a point release? where all
the updates are rolled up and tested as a group, then people can
upgrade to x.1, x.2, etc? How often would this happen? Additionally we
would need a way to decide if something is Critical or not.
I'm not sure minor (x.x.1, x.x.2) releases add much value. Wouldn't
people who want those just apply updates as they come out?
Thanks for writing things up... helps as a way to start more discussion
