CC'ing Christoph, he can likely give you a better answer.
I agree with Bill that http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/19/Spins
should be considered the authoritative list of spins. There is no reason
to only go for the desktop spins and exclude old spins from reoccurrence
if they are actively maintained.
In addition to that, we have some spins listed as ready for SIG:
I have no idea, why some of the spins are there:
* Design Suite was around for ages and is now actively maintained
* Same for the Games spin.
* Fedora jam was approved be the SIG in the F18 cycle but didn't
* Java spin is new, afaik it was not yet approved. The owner seems
unresponsive at least he has not responded to my questions in
the wiki since December. Also, the board had some issues with
* Mate is new, too. I had to nag Dan repeatedly to finish his
stuff, but he made it and we should officially bless it.
So as far as I can see, MATE is the only new spin we need to care about.
As we are likely to not have a meeting and we are running out of time, I
suggest we use the trac ticket I created for approval. All spins SIG
members, please cast your votes at
I want at least 3 SIG members +1 the spin. If you have any questions,
the ticket is the place to ask them.
Also, I want people to commit to testing the spins. It's not enough to
rubberstamp a spin, you have to actually test it. I want all spins to be
tested and signed of by at least two people, the spins wrangler and one
other person. They will need to run all relevant test cases for the
desktop they use, plus all spin-specific test cases (if there are any)
and document their findings in the wiki. Basically the same process that
we apply to the desktops will be extended throughout all spins.
This being said: Even if your spin is approved or reoccurring and listed
it might not make it.
We (that is me and rel-eng) will not release something that was not
