@t0xic0der This is a great initiative!! I would love to be part of this.
Hi @t0xic0der ,
Thank you so much for the very well written initiative request. Ive had an opportunity to review this request and should have a decision for you by the end of this week whether CPE will be able to accept and progress this request or not.
If we can, it will go into our quarterly planning choices where our teams stakeholders will rank work based on highest to lowest priority in a collective estimation. What quarterly planning round it goes into, ie if its for Q2 or Q3, is based on work that was prioritized from previous quarters that needs completion, and other initiatives we have that have a higher value gain.
If we do not accept this initiative to work on, I will let you know by Friday why we cant and if there are any other options you can consider for this project.
Thanks again for your submission and your patience, and I will let you know the decision to accept or not by Friday.
Thank you @amoloney for reaching out to this ticket. :smile:
Please feel free to ask any queries or concerns you might have regarding the proposal.
Im so sorry Im 3 (business) days late on my reply, time got away from me :(
Some members of the CPE team reviewed your initiative proposal and unfortunately it is not something we can help you develop right now.
Our main focus is maintaining and improving current Fedora services and infrastructure and we are not in a position to host and develop new services in Fedora.
As this is our primary remit, and so being completely honest, your initiative would go into our backlog and could remain there for many many months with little to no movement on progressing it as there tends to always be other projects that take priority and our resources first that hit that criteria more.
It is a really cool project and I would hate to see it in a backlog limbo if we accept it right now.
I would suggest reaching out to OSPO to request hosting and resources to develop this service, and please do come back to us when its up and running so we can look at integration as we would love to help you integrate this service in Fedora once it has been developed!
Im going to mark this as closed but add it to my fedorapeople.org profile in an Unable to Accept folder in case we can ever revisit or its needed again.
FWIW the proposal is excellently written and the service you propose sounds great, I would definitely use it! But I cannot in good conscience accept a proposal that runs too high a risk of not being worked on for months and months into our backlog. It deserves to be developed, and I am truly sorry we cannot provide you the resources to do it at this time :(
Please do feel free to submit any other proposals you may have to us though! We are targeted towards improvements, maintenance and integrations of services in the current Fedora infrastructure so if you have something that fits that criteria, send it my way and we would be delighted to review your proposal with our stakeholders and team.
Have a lovely day and thank you again for engaging with us in this process and I hope to work with you in the future!

Thank you for reaching back to this ticket. Being a part of maintenance and development of a lot of currently available applications to support the Fedora community, I totally understand why a new project might be undesirable now for it would just stay at its current state without being developed or added to for a considerable amount of time. I am happy to know that you liked the project proposal and I have come to hear about OSPO too very recently but I believe that you could help further by telling me more about it and by directing me to the right channels of communication to get this started with.
I am grateful to know that you would want to scope this later and would definitely submit proposals whenever I come across an idea that can be of help to the Fedora infrastructure and is worth working for. Thanks again for your time for reading through the proposal and engaging into a discussion about it. :blush:
It was my pleasure to review your proposal and I sincerely do hope we can integrate this service in Fedora in the near future :)
I did a little digging and all I could find is this page on OSPO https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Category:OSPO
It redirects you to information about the FCAIC who coordinates projects on behalf of Fedora.
Hopefully this helps you connect with them and thank you again for your submission and engagement in this process too :)
