I want to point us to Matthews posting today:
I think, it is a good idea, although at first glance not without some challenge. So I
would like to start a discussion about our story for F39.
When I mentally review our past discussions, several options spontaneously come to mind:
Our (famous) Ansible project (Server Edition local desktop management console, control
node, Server administration desktop spin).
Server Edition in a virtualized environment (installation support / installation images
for multiple VPS hosting environments).
Server Edition on modern Single Board Computer (SBC) (useful scenarios; improved support
for particularly suitable models; recommendations)
Backup and restore made easy
Server Edition as identification server (typical usage configuration / setup, typical
Server Edition as local or public file server (NFS, Samba, Cockpit support)
Newly polished installation media, maybe additionally an alternative directory tree for
better isolation of system and user software, maybe sort of image based media (cf. the
OpenSuSE discussion )
Server Edition als central management and installation server (pxe boot server et.al.)
These are just some ideas. Some need a longer time of development and preparation,
specifically the latter ones, some are realizable at shorter notice, in particular the
former ones. Something like 2. or 3. maybe realistic candidates for F39, a first part of
1., 4., 5. could get candidates for F40, the others may need a longer preparation and
Perhaps we should start by making a list of potential future focus areas and topics that
we are interested in working on. So, in a first step everybody of us should specify one or
more topics they are interested to work on and/or to contribute to. As an example, from
the above list I would be interested on 1., 2., 3., 7.
We would then have to put this in a chronological order and find a project lead and
contributors for each at least of the first 2-3 topics.
Well, the floor is open.
