#179 [Hack-half] Modularity & packager experience BoF
Closed: Resolved 4 years ago by riecatnor. Opened 5 years ago by psabata.

= Questions/Requested Information

  1. What is your proposal?

Packager experience with modularity hasn't been all that great so far. People working on various parts of it are aware of some gaps but we need a) more user stories from the actual world, and b) find some way forward together where the "obvious" fix isn't practical or possible.

This is a half a day long birds of feather session with some modularity representatives. Packagers, users, release engineers, and pretty much everyone is welcome to contribute.

  1. Who in addition to the speaker needs to be in the room for this to succeed? This could be the audience you need to reach, other participants in the conversation, or other stakeholders.

List each person by their name and FAS ID, as shown below:

  • Adam Šamalík (asamalik)
  • Langdon White (langdon)
  • Stephen Gallagher (sgallagh)
  1. Is this a…
  • FAD/Hackfest that lasts a half-day
  1. Anything else we need to know?

No specific needs.

  1. Who are you?
  • Name: Petr Šabata
  • FAS ID: psabata
  • IRC Nick, if not FAS ID: contyk

I hope this would be useful, especially if we can identify specific pain points and how to solve them in a backwards-compatible manner.

It could be useful, I'm not sure what we'd be doing though. This also kind of aligns with what @ignatenkobrain and I are doing for #151.

You'd be doing the most important thing, bringing ideas :)

I think that bringing all our ideas, opinions, and experiences together, and combining them to a shared vision that we all understand and that ideally works for all of us, would be quite beneficial.

And potentially writing it down in a short, effective way, maybe with some guiding principles that would help us dealing with potential future issues would be even better.

A huge +1 to this!

I would like to attend this talk.

We should figure out module retirement and fix it (or come up with a design for it and plan the work) during this session
