Building Enlightenment 0.17.1

    2013-02-03 08:42 | Автор: Vasile Chelban | Filed under: FedoraMD

    As you might already know, Enlightenment has 3 branches: legacy 0.16, post release and bugfix 0.17, and development 0.18. Right now I'm building E17 for Fedora Core 16. After that I'll push all 3 Fedora versions (16, 17, 18) to repository. It will be first push for Spherical Cow, and last one for Fedora Verne, since it will be declared End of Life release on 2013-02-12 (close enough).
    Another good news - Enlightenment 0.17 is proposed to be a feature of Fedora 19 (surely it will be backported to FC18 too). We can get fresh and stable Enlightenment out of the box. While I was proposed by François Cami to maintain Enlightenment for FedoraProject, I'm not sure that I will have enough time for my hobby. Maintaining private repository is a lot simpler stuff, than official distro repo.
    Still, I'm commited to push all my repo sources (build scripts) to public GIT repository, so everyone will be able to continue my work and make it better.

      Vasile, thanks for all the hard work over the last few years with this Enlightenment.

      The problem is that, if this project is handed over to Fedora, it will eventually die. There has already been an option in the distant past to get E; it was allowed to wither on the vine. Their recent past E offerings seemed designed to run people away from E. Your project, on the other hand, gives people a full blown working E that can be used as a standalone desktop.

      The truth is that Fedora’s priorities as set by Red Hat include either Gnome or KDE, both of which have data mining capabilities built in to their infrastructure by design. E is pristine and of course does not; especially if you are controlling the dependency chains at installation time.

      So I’m just saying; if you think this project will live on because Fedora has stewardship of it; it wont.

      Kind Regards
