Launchpad Entry: gobuntu-hardy
Discuss what needs to be done for Gobuntu and what can be achieved in the Hardy time frame. Go over https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Gobuntu/Policies.
This section should include a paragraph describing the end-user impact of this change. It is meant to be included in the release notes of the first release in which it is implemented. (Not all of these will actually be included in the release notes, at the release manager's discretion; but writing them is a useful exercise.)
It is mandatory.
This should cover the _why_: why is this change being proposed, what justifies it, where we see this justified.
You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.
This section should describe a plan of action (the "how") to implement the changes discussed. Could include subsections like:
Should cover changes required to the UI, or specific UI that is required to implement this
Code changes should include an overview of what needs to change, and in some cases even the specific details.
- data migration, if any
- redirects from old URLs to new ones, if any
- how users will be pointed to the new way of doing things, if necessary.
It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during CD testing, and to show off after release.
This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.
This should highlight any issues that should be addressed in further specifications, and not problems with the specification itself; since any specification with problems cannot be approved.
BoF agenda and discussion
- keep launchpad integration
- clarify that this isn't an attempt to kill gnewsense
ffmpeg, libavcodec -> restricted
- further prodding of the kernel team on removing firmware
- gobuntu community driven list of free hardware
- talk to scott and ken about gobuntu artwork and branding (there's a list of ubuntu branding items)
- ubiquity support
- RT request for separate gobuntu website, in the same vein as kubuntu
Are there any principled reasons for using Launchpad in Gobuntu development apart from the practical one mentioned above?
- technical, but we should investigate ways in which we can push individuals who are concerned about this to the gnewsense community, and better define our relationship with gnewsense
