Long Term Topics

There are a couple of long term topics we should / want to discuss. They can be discussed when the daily business topics are done.

  • UEFI boot: the never ending story. How to cope with the situation here? (andreas-f)
  • pylint: due to the fact that there is more and more python code it might be a good idea to use pylint. (andreas-f)
  • Removal of base element: how to continue? (andreas-f)
  • DIB vs. bindep vs. instack vs. *-puppet: Functional overlap. Is there the need to support them all? Can we possible merge some of them? (andreas-f)
  • Refactoring of elements: having a new structure for at least Ubuntu and Debian specific elements. Currently there is a lot duplication. (andreas-f)
  • *-nano elements for minimalist docker images? (andreas-f)
  • Local vs. CI testing: (docker / vm) matrix build. Double work or step forward? (andreas-f)
  • Cleanup patches? (currently about 110 open) (andreas-f)
  • python vs. bash: should we start refactoring bash code in python (maybe reusing the instack approach)? (andreas-f)
  • (python) replacement of dib-run-parts? (andreas-f)
  • Internal vs. external caching: there is *some* code that (tries) to handle caching. Is this still worth it in times of squid / apt-cacher-ng? (andreas-f)
  • DIB 3.0: feature list
