#238 VFAD: Settle container policy open questions
Closed: Fixed 7 years ago Opened 7 years ago by dustymabe.

We have identified quite a few policy decisions that need to be made surrounding containers before we can start reviewing these things in bulk. Some of the issues are below:

We need to have a group of people really get together and hash these issues out and publish the results so that we can start reviewing containers at a faster rate. I am giving the point on this to @jberkus as discussed in today's IRC meeting. A VFAD next week would probably be a great way to hash out some of this and get decisions back to users and reviewers fast.

other interested parties that want to take part in the discussion are @gbraad, @kushal, @jhogarth. It's also required that @maxamillion be there and would probably be good to have @jbrooks there. I'll add more names as I find people.

Does next Friday work for people? Or is that too hard on the Europeans?

Does next Friday work for people? Or is that too hard on the Europeans?

I will be in Westford, so next Fri I am not an European...

I'm in. What time & date are we exactly talking about here? Same as Christoph, I'm an American next week.

Next friday works for me too - @jberkus, in the last VFAD it was more "task based". I think this VFAD will be more "discussion based" so this may serve best on a bluejeans session. The goal of a VFAD is to get something DONE, though, so we should probably schedule it for a longer period of time than a normal meeting and try to set an agenda so that we can make progress and not get off in the weeds too much.

Friday shouldn't be a problem ... but the timing is the main question

Friday it is. Sounds like most of the group is East Coast time for the day?

What is people's schedule for the day? Presumaby if @goern and @ttomecek are in Westford for the day, they may have other meetings?

ok the plan is to meeting on Friday 03/10/2017 from 10-12 EST and from 1-3 EST. @jberkus is going to set an agenda and cat herd issues and note takers for the day.

Waiting on @maxamillion to confirm, though, since he's required for this.

Announcement Text:

We will be having a VFAD this Friday (March 10) to update and revise the Container Guidelines based on the reviews of the first containers submitted to FLIBs.

The tentative schedule for this VFAD is:

10:00-12:00 15:00-17:00 Part I
12:00-13:00 17:00-18:00 Break
13:00-15:00 18:00-20:00 Part II

A specific agenda will be published Wednesday and a BlueJeans link on Thursday. If you can only attend part of the FAD because of your time zone, please update the Pagure issue with your availability and specific issues you care about so that we can adjust the agenda:


This VFAD will consist of discussion of each issue followed by updating of the container guidelines. Some items may require follow-up, but the goal is to get all items settled during the VFAD.

Issues covered by this VFAD are here:


If you have additional issues, please add them to Pagure, and make sure to tag them VFAD/containers.
