Relevant GNOME team



This is primarily a GNOME Software integration and future development hackfest, but perhaps wandering into a xdg-app/ostree/gnome general discussion.

Agenda, goals

  • Introductions
  • Intro to the GNOME Software architecture
  • What Red Hat wants to do
  • What Canonical wants to do
  • What Endless wants to do
  • What Codethink wants to do
  • CI/build systems for runtimes

Measuring your success

Re Hat, Endless and Canonical have all agreed to use GNOME Software as a software center. We'll need to make certain changes to the architecture and to the UI, and this will ignite this discussion.
