  * OWNER: Jef Spaleta
  * '''FOLLOWUP on 2008-02-12'''
    * Jef is waiting for feedback from Jeremy Katz on release 
engineering's perspective
      * Reference: 
    * People are still not clear on exactly what is required to create 
an official "Fedora Spin"
    * Need a clear list of guidelines of what a spin owner is 
responsible for and what they are required to test
      * Hoping a test  will come from Jeremy Katz as part of feedback 
from release engineering
    * We are only talking about spins that use GA packages, thus testing 
for GA should have given us enough comfort that risk is minimized
       * We only need to be concerned with new combination of packages 
that a spin would present
       * Paul Frields--followup with Fedora Release Engineering and QA 
contingent to discuss testing requirements
       * Jef Spaleta to formulate specific guidelines for review prior 
to or at next board meeting (dependent on feedback from release engineering)
   * '''FOLLOWUP on 2008-02-19'''
     * Crux of issue right now is figuring out exactly what input 
release engineering is supposed to be giving
     * Jef will have a writeup to the board by next meeting

can sit down and work out any of the remaining details with Jeremy, 
Jesse, Will, etc.
