Working Together: Varied needs coalesce in the Import-Export community effort


After reinventing itself as Fedora 4, the Fedora repository software is maturing and is the subject of increased adoption. As regular development makes way for a more demand-driven approach to improvements and extensions, an unlikely band of interested parties have joined together, each contributing to a long list of functional requirements that would back the “Import-Export” development effort.

This talk will discuss how requirements were gathered, work was organized and ultimately how this successful effort to improve the fedora 4 software can serve as a model for future community-driven improvement.
