== Notes ==

=== Spins Wrangler ===
* Bruno started writing a job description for spins wrangler, need to
finish document
* How much work is it?
** From Nirik's work - 1-2 hours day / machine builds them every day
** If a build breaks in rawhide, wrangler has to fix
** A release-engineering style job

* We need to figure out what spins are
** Mega DVD put all desktop choices in GRUB. Not necessarily best
approach, why not DE selection in GDM?
** Two types of spins - Desktop Environments and Functional
(Electronics, Design)
** Does anyone practically use them? Issue with live usb eating itself
when out of disk space
** mdomsch added agenda item to FUDCon Tempe; Board should lead
discussion on future of Spins and bring up at FUDcon

=== Dual-Layer DVD Ambassadors' Request ===
* Board isn't opposed to the idea, but dislikes the timing of the
request, well past feature freeze
** We're not saying no to the concept, it's a good idea, but we want
to make sure things are done right
** Most spins are not provided as official physical media
** Mega DVD is available for review:
*** torrent: http://sspreitzer.fedorapeople.org/torrents/
*** direct download: http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/mega-dvd-test/
** Major concerns are:
*** Needs to be built on Fedora infrastructure
*** Needs to have basic QA
*** Needs polish/artwork/sleeves
* We need to establish requirements for approving something like this
** https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Media_Handout_Requirements (mdomsch)
* Board to revisit once requirements are documented.

=== Election Schedule ==
