 +  
 +Vinux 6 problems discussed, not a lot of work once images are installable 
 +  
 +8. Development discussion 
 +  
 +discuss arm builds not having any ppa equivalent and how that effects us now 
 +  
 +Vinux based on Ubuntu we use PPA, personal package archives which gives us a quick easy way to build packages. 
 +Coprs can be used on Fedora which is similar, but they only support X86 right now. 
 +Fedora do have hardware ready for copr builds but it has not been deployed as yet, there is a bug filed against it indicating some work needs to be done still. 
 +Kyle and Luke have been discussing setting up their own builders, but X86 could use a copr and then use our own system for Arm, but as a developer you have  to upload two lots of packages. 
 +If we had our own system using everything, you push to git then can pull from that repo and build your package. 
 +Use Vinux dedicated VPS for master builder. 
 +  
 +Kyle.nz has IBM rack server which could be a good builder. 
 +  
 +Put builders on a VPN. 
 +  
 +  
 +Fedora's support lifecycle, and how we manage it for VInux Fedora. 
 +  
 +Fedora releases are supported for around 13 months. 
 +  
 +Luke plans to install Fedora 24 once 26 is released as 24 will still have a month of support. 
 +  
 +Kyle B suggested Install some packages, change settings then try to skip an upgrade and see how it goes. 
 +  
 +Should Vinux support  three releases at some stages, with a month overlap. 
 +  
 +  
 +Accessibility profile work done in Ubuntu and if it should be ported to Vinux for Fedora. 
 +  
 +Luke happy to write a Mate applet and a gnome extension to support the profiles. 
 +  
 +Anaconda supports add-ons, may be helpful if we can use Anaconda to support the accessibility profiles. 
 +  
 +9. Vinux products 
 +  
 +What hardware Fedora supports well and what should the general specs of Vinux hardware shipped out to users 
 +  
 +Fedora Arm hardware, specifically the C2 would have the most headless support in the mainline kernel released  
 +from Fedora 26. 
 +  
 +By the time Fedora 27 is released Kyle B believes that Vinux will be ready to provide Arm Vinux hardware. 
 +Hopefully that the XU4 will also be supported. 
 +  
 +Luke to assist with kernel bootstrapping. 
 +  
 +X86 machines are still available for Vinux builds 
 +  
 +EOMA68 support in the future, they are offering options to include several different operating systems including Fedora.
