The Fedora Cloud Workgroup met today (4 December 2013) in the #fedora-meeting-1 channel on Freenode, and discussed release cadence/lifecycle, the product branding ticket, PRD, release criteria for images after Fedora 20, and more.
Present this week (by IRC nick): frankieonuonga, geppetto, jzb, mattdm, number80, rbergeron.
After some discussion, it was decided that the Fedora Cloud images would follow a monthly cadence plus “trigger-based” updates if the updates exceed 50 MB and/or the update is security related.
The Fedora Design Team has asked for feedback from the working groups to work on branding for the separate projects. The questions were discussed at last week’s meeting, and also some feedback had come in via the mailing list ahead of last week’s meeting.
The group seemed to be in agreement on the responses, so jzb agreed to consolidate that and forward it on to the Fedora Design team.
Product Requirements Document (PRD)
The workgroup is currently trying to pull together a PRD before December 15th. There’s been little activity on the PRD since the last meeting, but it was agreed that frankieonuonga would take lead on the CloudStack section, and jzb would work on the Release/Product Overview section this week.
If the PRD still needs work after this week, the workgroup will try to schedule a hackfest to put in order ahead of the 15th.
Tabled for Future Meetings
Two topics were tabled for later, due to time and/or need to gather more information prior to discussion.
- Release Criteria for post-F20 images is being held until after the Fedora 20 release. A Trac ticket has been set up and proposed criteria can be added there for the time being.
- Relationship with the Server Workgroup. This discussion was deferred to the mailing list/next week’s meeting due to time.
Nightly qcow Builds
It was pointed out that we now have nightly qcow builds thanks to Release Engineering. You can find them in Koji.
