See packaging team too as at this time, both teams are very intertwined. The developers team is still in the forming stage.

Team leaders

  • mailing-list
  • irc channel
  • meeting/planning
  • team leaders: ?
  • team council representative: ?

People volunteering as:

  • representative to the council: <nick>, <nick>...
  • team leader: <nick>, <nick>...
  • team leader backup: <nick>, <nick>...

People that did not volunteer but you think would be good as:

  • representative to the council: anssi, tv, tmb, <nick>, <nick>...
  • team leader: anssi, tv, tmb, <nick>, <nick>...
  • team leader backup: anssi, tv, tmb, stewb, kharec, <nick>, <nick>...

People that have been volunteered by others, but do not want to have this burden:

  • representative to the council: <nick>, <nick>...
  • team leader: <nick>, <nick>...
  • team leader backup: <nick>, <nick>...


What do we need to communicate:

  • mailing-list:
    • is mageia-dev enough, or is its goal to be shared amongst team?
    • mageia-soft to be added otherwise
  • wiki pages to hold documentation on our rules, best practices, etc

What other resources do we need:

  • scm to hold the software
    • migrate away from svn? git?
    • should we wait for this step after 1st release?
    • do we let mdv keep maintaining the drak tools? or do we take them over?

Future ideas

These ideas are only for future discussion, they are listed here, so they won't be forgotten

  • having balanced gateways by default
    • a bit of advanced routing to make sure incoming packets go out the same interface.
    • balancing the multiple default gateways with advanced routing; and have some kind of daemon running to check which gateways are actually routing properly and modify the balancing accordingly.
  • Automatic device detection daemon running in the background that detects and identifies any hardware device connected via USB ports
  • Automatic/Manual Load and resource sharing between multi-core processors used in Desktops/laptops/netbooks thereby improving speed, stability and security issues - could be based upon AI or statistical sampling techniques (similar to the techniques used in Digital TV for bit rate reduction of n channels of digital data streams).
  • Development of a multi-kernel experimental version distro utilizing multi-core/multi-kernel processing and resource sharing capability.


  1. have communication place and decision tool
  2. decide on leadership
  3. decide on what to do with scm and draktools maintainership
  4. decide on names, numbers, suffixes
  5. have an import of mdv svn soft
  6. decide on important changes
  7. document them
