= Proposed System Wide Change:  Database Server Role =

Change owner(s):  Kevin Fenzi and Truong Anh Tuan 
<server at lists.fedoraproject.org>
Responsible WG: Server WG 

The Fedora Server Product will provide a standard deployment mechanism for a 
Linux Database Server (powered by the postgresql project). 

== Detailed Description ==
The Fedora Server Product will be shipped with a role-deployment mechanism. 
One such role will be to act as a primary or replica Database Server for the 
Linux machines in the network.

This will be implemented by taking advantage of the postgresql project, 
packaging it up within the Server Role Framework [1] and enabling it to be 
deployed through the mechanisms described in the Framework for Server Role 
Deployment Change Proposal.

Note that this role is a secondary target of the Server Working group. 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
** Postgresql server and related tools need to be packaged appropriately for 
use with the Server Role Infrastructure.
** A D-BUS API plugin needs to be written and tested to support deployment and 
monitoring of the Database server.
* Other developers: None
* Release engineering:
** Pre-loading roles will need to be a capability of the Anaconda install 
system, both in the graphical installer and kickstart
* Policies and guidelines:
** Packaging guidelines for this Change should be inherited from the Framework 
for Server Role Deployment Change Proposal [1].
