Since we ship tomorrow with our first ever release of the Fedora i3 Spin,
with Fedora 34, I'm now thinking on the work for Fedora 35. One thing we
need to do is to start meeting regularly again.
But other than that, I was thinking in where to focus our efforts for F35,
and my mind just repeat over and over on documentation. i3 is not an easy
environment, and if we are still aiming on make it usable for new users, my
opinion is that we need to focus on document 2 things:
1. How to customize i3 (with examples)
2. How to configure some stuff (some basics in i3 are not "basic", like
The last thing I think is important is to get agreements on
https://pagure.io/i3-sig/Fedora-i3-Spin/issue/49, and get this done at
least 2 weeks before "F35 – Change 100% Code Complete Deadline " milestone,
set to 2021-08-24.
We did something really good and I want to thank all of you, @nasirhm
odilhao jwf defolos and all the involved people like Southern_Gentlem who
helped us a lot with the ISOs for testing and so much stuff. It have been a
fun journey and the result will be up there tomorrow! It's the first
milestone in a long run, and TBH it feels really good. I hope we can
continue producing this Spin for a long time (Long live to X!) and I hope
we can help others to create their Spins, like Sway, and why not others WM
like Xmonad, Awesome and more!
Again, thanks so much for this awesome project!

Just created my Fedora Contributor account yesterday, and have recently
installed the F34 i3 spin on my Lenovo T470s. I figured we are pretty close
to GA, so what could go wrong? ;-)
Have been using Linux and i3wm for a number of years now, mainly on Arch
Linux, but I use Fedora as my daily driver at work, and will be using i3
from now on.
I work for Red Hat, but not in a technical role. I manage a team of Sales
specialists in Melbourne Australia. However I've been a long time user and
tinkerer with Linux.
I'm good at breaking/testing things :). I dabble in Python, but wouldn't
quite call myself a coder.
Looking forward to the success of the i3 spin, and keen to help in any way
I can as time permits.

Oh, and if one of the sponsors could perhaps add me to the i3 SIG group?
The accounts.fedoraproject.org needs a sponsor to do that :).
