Goose Project Goals for 2012

Ok, so most folks come up with a list of New Years goals for themselves. Being as I am a geek at heart, I have put together a list of goals for my participation in the Goose Linux Project.

Here they are:

- Improve documentation via maintenance or creation of a few wiki pages/docs.

- Automate the build of the build environment, Koji. Either by basing off of Ascendos' fantastic work or from scratch.

- Examine the authentication schema for the build env, perhaps FreeIPA.

- Koji patch/plugins for 2012, submit at least 5.

In addition to that, the team has come up with a rather ambitious list of overall goals for the project for this year as well. Here are some of them (reminder to self - start goose wiki page with these listed there):

- Project Goal GoOSe 6.0 Alpha release imminent (Jan 15, 2012).

- Project Goal Coordinate better cooperation with other el rebuild projects.

- Project Goal Start targeting release of GoOSe 6.1, 6.2, 6.x closer to our declared 60 days after upstream.

- Project Goal Automate contributor management. Spin up from joining to contributing much faster.

- Project Goal Improve upstream process by contributing patches and improving build tools.

And those are just a few of the more ambitious goals for the project. The list will evolve as time goes on, so keep an eye out and join us on #gooseproject on IRC when you have time to contribute or just want to learn more.
