School Server Packaging

Project Description

School Server Packaging

The One Laptop per Child project (OLPC) provides a software distribution for what they call the "school server" (XS). This distribution needs to run on both ARM and x86_64/i386 systems.

There are some packages that have been created for this school server which should be reviewed using Fedora's packaging guidelines and made a part of the Fedora package set. This may involve refactoring the packages (dividing them up), adjusting spec files, and going through the Fedora package review process. There are some XO 1.75 ARM computers available for sign-out if needed.

Expected outcome: The XS packages will be in the Fedora package set.

Maximum number of students: 6 (each taking several different packages)

Skills required: packaging, scripting, testing

Resources: Jerry Vonauk, Adam Holt, Chris Tyler (ctyler)
