It seems there are some issues with the current Spins approval process,
but to workaround I've been asked to contact each of your lists to get
acks for approval to keep the ball rolling.
The spins feature page in question is located at:
For the test plan we are awaiting an upstream commit to virt-manager to
add in a tui version of virt-manager. We plan to showcase that in the
spin as well. This means the test plan will be updated from its current
state. (updated tentatively today)
For the artwork we have a boot splash screen in the unofficial spins
that we release ourselves on new builds, in the case of a spin this was
an item we are not allowed to change. We'll also be providing
screenshots of the new virt-manager-tui and standalone mode installation.
If you have any questions please contact me or apevec(a)redhat.com
I am very interested in keeping Enlightenment in Fedora, or let's say
bring it back to Fedora.
Are there any other geeks wanting to contribute for Edora? :)
In far future, there could be also an Enlightenment Spin. But first, we
need packages, packages & packages for all the E stuff.
Here are some source packages, thanks to Subfusc.
Looking forward to find some E friends. Please tell me if you like to
be also in.

I'm currently looking at converting the legacy sysv init script that get
created by the ks files to a native systemd unit files for the spins and
at the same time looking into tuning the boot up process for live runs.
Now instead of cluttering the ks file with creation of the unit and the
tuning I have moved this into a seperated package which each spin would
have to install at install time( if accepted as an solution since this
is in a package it will be a change in your current workflow ) and
ofcourse -$package that other ks. would pull in.
I have created a Proof Of Concept package for LXDE contains the
Tweaking parts in the spec file to disable service that are not needed
to run on the live image.
( note this is just an example for what can be achieved rather than what
should be done system analyze plot shows lxde booting up in 55 seconds
and ofcourse you can just delete that tweaking section from the spec
file along with removing the relevant "restore-service-state" section in
it if you dont want to tweak the bootup at all )
2 unit files livesys.service and livesys-late.service that both disable
itself after being run ( which the legacy sysv did not do )
2 scripts that are simply the legacy syv init scripts standalone as
created for lxde in the ks.file
1 script that restores what got disable when the package got installed
which ( in theory ) should a user install the live image and or run a
live image with persistent storage those services will be available to
him after install ( and by available I mean running as they would have
been on the livecd before tweakin ) or encase of live usb with
persistent storage on the next reboot.
I was planning on having a working POC before posting this but
unfortunately the LXDE owner has been unresponsive both on irc and
private mail I sent him but to not keep this discussion from happening
since moving this stuff into a package is a change in spins workflow I
decide to post this here to get the discussion going.
If someone has the time to actually test this with me and see if this is
achievable et all then mention that on this thread and or contact me
privatly and I will convert your spins and create a (s)rpm which you
would just install.
