The spins list had mention that FEL had gone dormant

This is the initial step to reviving it

Other tasks are:

  1. getting a mailing list -re-created

https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-electronic-lab-list
->
https://lists.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/Electronic-lab

  1. update the spin presence:

https://spins.fedoraproject.org/fel/

We have the 'go-ahead' from the former project lead: chitlesh@gmail.com

@smooge has a file copy of that approval of transfer

-- Russ Herrold

kickstarts need to include relevant pieces from the other base kickstarts. take a look at how scientific kde has been structured

this will also need a Fedora change for F29 for fesco to approve and to enable us to make sure that marketing etc is done and it is advertised

File restructured to add some flesh for Electronics specific design, coding, and implementation

It should now be able to build code for, and update an Arduino class embedded controller with an '.INO' file

I use a binutils based toolchain for ESP type hardware, and need to consider what may not presently be in Fedoraproject packagings, proper

As to approvals for distribution, * nod *, but I have to have a template to test with , and to take advocacy screenshots from, first

I viewed the Jenkins failure, and this appears to be out of scope to my prior work:

...
+ ksvalidator -i fedora-arm-base.ks
The authconfig command will be deprecated, use authselect instead.
Build step 'Execute shell' marked build as failure
Sending e-mails to: lsedlar@redhat.com
Finished: FAILURE

I assume, but do not know that the PR will get this latest ... I may need to cancel the prior one and point to the latest commit -- not sure. It is the same file being amended, of course

All the matters raised have been transferred to either a

FESCO ticket,

https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/1864

a fresh patch, or

https://pagure.io/fedora-kickstarts/pull-request/362

a bugzilla filing

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1557556

so I will close this PR
