I am the lead for the Fedora Respin Sig
first off I would like to release an F33-i3 respin passible next monday
i asked Bcotton and he said they i needed to ask the I3 Sig to see if it
was ok with you.
a) it will help advertise the i3 spin more for f34.
b) i will need some testers to test the iso
i built a iso today as a test iso and if you would like to test please
do and give feedback
the current iso with checksum are located at

Ben Cotton built a preview of the i3 Spin website that will be used for
Fedora 34. We need to include descriptions of the apps we will ship;
currently, what is shown is for the LXQt desktop.
Alternatively, we can also opt to not have any applications shown, but I
think it would be cool to show what we're shipping here.
We will need some hands to help us out with drafting the text to go on
the site. More details in the fedora-websites ticket:

Hi Fedora i3 SIG,
I work on a desktop environment project called Regolith which
currently supports Ubuntu-based systems. We have an open issue for
porting our desktop environment to Fedora and a user noted the existence of
this project and suggested maybe we could work together. I clicked around
a bit in your project pages but did not find much in the way of concrete
details. Things that I am interested in, and may be topics for discussion:
1. How do you intend to handle the "desktop environment" stuff (Set screen
resolution, sound output, user locale, etc.)?
2. How do you intend to create your package dependency graph?
From the 2 or so years I've worked on this project, I think a big design
challenge is how to allow for users to modify and extend their desktop in
such a way that updates over time do not break user configurations but
still allow the freedom to make changes under the hood. I am working on a
design for decomposition of an i3 config file into conf.d style
partials. I'd also be curious as to what insights you may have here.
Currently I am working on breaking the package topology of Regolith to
allow for easier porting to package formats such as RPM and host operating
systems such as Debian, and potentially also entirely different desktop
systems such as Wayland/Sway.
