I have updated the feature page and have passed it to the Feature Wrangler
It appears that the Spins SIG should be involved here, but I am not sure
what still needs to be done and when it needs to be done.
If there are things you need from me please let me know.
I expect to have stuff ready for wider testing in a couple weeks and
advice on what to do when I get to that point is appreciated.
I was looking at CommunitySpinGuidelines for Live Spins and saw the part
8192 recommendation for DVDs. I don't think that is going to work for
the games spin (8000 was too small and I have been using 10000 for my
testing). My understanding is that is a before compression size and so
depending on well things compress, 8GB could potentially compress to
significantly smaller than 4GB. Is it a big deal to use a somewhat
larger value there?
Please add a comment on the bigger size in the kickstart.
And as a heads up, I am also working on getting livecd-tools to
isos using udf so that the compressed file system can be over 4GB. That
will add about 300 MB to the maximum size while still fitting on a DVD.
See bug 476696 if you are intested. The Games Spin compressed file system
is just under 4GiB as built by my tests on F10. I would like to have
the ability to go a little higher in case some change impacts the size
shortly before release.
You're doing an awesome job. How about you request GIT commit access and
become the maintainer of the kickstart?
