Subject: distromatch and debtags at Fosdem
Date: Tuesday, January 24, 2012, 16:13:09
From: Enrico Zini <enrico(a)enricozini.org>
I will be giving two talks in the cross-distribution room at Fosdem
which I would like to turn into actions. I'm posting here a summary of
my talks and what I wish would follow from them.
If you think the goal is worthwile / would like to take care of it,
please join the talks and help make it happen:
"I wrote Distromatch, shall we use it?"
Saturday, room H.1301, 18:15--19:00
I'd like to create a loosely coupled group, with at least one person
per distribution, with two goals:
1. keep distromatch (the python command line tool and the data
exports) working and accurate;
2. use it to improve one's own distribution by "stealing" data from
all the others.
Sunday, room H.1302, 10:00--11:00
I'd like to see other distributions adopt debtags. A starter dataset
can already be exported over distromatch.
If one wants to go further, the whole debtags.debian.net
should be easily re-themable and deployable for other non-debian
distributions: I can show how.
