Please find below the list of topics that are likely to come up in the

in #fedora-meeting on irc.freenode.org:

/topic FESCO-Meeting -- MISC -- elect FESCo Chair - all
/topic FESCO-Meeting -- MISC -- Feature Proposal Approval -
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/Dashboard - notting, poelcat
/topic FESCO-Meeting -- Rebuilding Packages -- Needs to decide whether
to always rebuild, or only when toolchain warrants it - all

/topic FESCo meeting -- Free discussion around Fedora

You want something to be discussed? Send a note to the list in reply to
this mail and I'll add it to the schedule (I can't promise we will get
to it tomorrow, but we'll most likely will if we don't run out of time).
You can also propose topics in the meeting while it is in the "Free
discussion around Fedora" phase.

If your name/nick is on above list please update the status on the
Extras schedule pages in the wiki ahead of the meeting. That way all the
other FESCo members and interested contributors know what up ahead of
the meeting. And we will avoid long delays in the meeting -- those often
arise if someone describes the recent happenings on a topic directly in
the meeting while all the others have to wait for his slow typing...

I've got a somewhat strange question for FESco to look at, I would like to have an exception to the rule that all packages must be reviewed for the following set of packages:

* arm-gp2x-linux-binutils
  Cross Compiling GNU binutils targeted at arm-gp2x-linux

* arm-gp2x-linux-kernel-headers
  Kernel headers for Cross Compiling to arm-gp2x-linux

* arm-gp2x-linux-gcc
  Cross Compiling GNU GCC targeted at arm-gp2x-linux

* arm-gp2x-linux-glibc
  Cross Compiled GNU C Library targeted at arm-gp2x-linux

* arm-gp2x-linux-SDL
  Cross Compiled SDL Library targeted at arm-gp2x-linux

* arm-gp2x-linux-zlib
  Cross Compiled zlib Library targeted at avr

I've been trying to find a reviewer for them for ages, but there seems to be no-one with both the expertise and the time to review them. You all know that I'm a very serious packager, and that I have near 0 bugs open against my 135+ packages, so I hope that you will trust me to deliver good quality even without a review.


Another issue I would like FESco to look at is the current somewhat grey state of kmod's I'm considering packaging kmod's for uvc (usb video class driver), lirc and islsm (prism54 softmac driver, which is in F-7, but no longer in rawhide). But before I invest time in these I would first like to have the state of kmod's cleared up. I will try to work with there resp. upstreams to get them in the upstream kernel, and atleast for uvc and islsm upstream merger is planned already.
