Description

Would it make sense for us to have a Fedora repository solely for Creative Commons content?

FESCo voted to escalate this topic to the Board.

Will leave this ticket open for now, until the Board has a chance to add it to their agenda.

Do we need to have this repository established before the freeze? I ask only because I'm trying to fit a very large agenda into tomorrow's meeting and would like to tackle this March 3 if possible.

Replying to pfrields:

No, I don't think the repo would need to be established before the freeze, so it should be fine to push to your March 3rd meeting.

Per the board meeting this was discussed at:

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

While FESCo believes this to be an interesting idea, they're not sure that this belongs under the Fedora umbrella for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Not being a "core competency" of Fedora (sorry for the suit-talk there).
  • Technical specifications are unclear/undefined
  • Content acceptance specifications undefined.
  • No one to actually implement such a thing has stepped forward thus far

FESCo is going to attempt to drum up some cross-distro interest in order to create something actionable.

For now, I'm going to close this ticket. It can be reopened if required.
