At the moment, the official spins are still being done with the configs
from the livecd-tools git repo.
Ohw? Who decided that?
Jeroen -- we need to talk about what the long-term answer is because
having _3_ copies of the files just isn't really scalable :-) But
I'm a bit hosed schedule-wise this week, so maybe next week once the
alpha is baked?
That depends. Someone decided the live spin kickstarts needed to be
maintained in two separate repositories by making the official spins
come from livecd-tools' GIT repo. When that happened, or why, I don't
know. Nor do I know what objections there are to a new location,
including it's new (submission/review) process. What's keeping
livecd-tools, release engineering, hence "the official process" from
using the kickstarts in spin-kickstarts exactly?
I say two locations, because the fedora-10-gold.ks used for installation
media is in pungi (and? or?) fedora-release, not in spin-kickstarts, and
as such doesn't concern this discussion.
FWIW, my livecd-tools GIT commit access request has been pending for
ages. I was planning on letting the kickstarts have an easy transition,
but I guess it's not going to happen.
I feel I'm contributing a valuable effort to this process, thanks.
