Project Description

The Fedora-ARM project is building Fedora 13/14/15 for the ARM architecture. As this proceeds, various problems arise. For example:

Some packages fail to build for ARM. They can be fixed up to build successfully on ARM, or if that's not possible, marked as unsuitable for ARM (ExlcudeArch). If a group of packages is built to work with a specific version of a library, and a newer version of that library replaces the older version, then the packages that rely on that library can break. This can often be remedied simply by rebuilding the broken package; in other cases, patches are required

Project Plan

Key contacts: Paul Whalen and Chris Tyler

Goals for each release and plans for reaching those goals:

  • 0.1 Pick a package and start fixing errors. Upload them on Koji
  • 0.2 Build more packages --> add them to problem list. (Write tickets with the packages we started)
  • 0.3 Inform Chris Tyler or Paul Whalen once we are done or tried finishing the list. (Build some more packages?)

Project News

We had a meeting with Chris Tyler and Paul Whalen if we should contribute to Fedora 13, Fedora 13 updates or Fedora 14. The Members of this project decided we should do the packages in random order starting with Chantell.
