Jim to write up list of actions / content to address export control requirements



Jim: need to sell the sanity aspect in light of new sigs Jim: not a fan of cute names Karsten: names are memorable Mike: the names don’t have to be cute Ralph: don’t want the name to be too long. dates are good/practical Carl: need to avoid fragmentation. no names per variants KB: Year and month is enough. It takes days to get content on the mirrors Mike: let’s enumerate the different classes of sigs/variants and think about how naming should work in each case Mike: we want to avoid giving the appearance of EUS-type support Fabian: consider chef/puppet variables could break various puppet modules/etc Karsten: can we provide major/minor number where necessary without using it at top level? Jim/KB: vendor validation Jim: too drastic a change too fast could cause a user revolt KB: just drop the subrelease altogether. E.g. centos-6-atomic Karsten: need to really think about how we will present this to the community folks will point out holes in plan we’ll have an iterative process KB: let’s take the rest of this offline/email

A wild Johnny appears!
