Stephen Gallagher of Red Hat volleyed a new mailing list topic today with Fedora.Next products and the fate of Fedora spins. Among the open questions that are now up for mailing list discussion include whether spins are useful as they currently exist, whether spins should be eliminated in favor of Fedora Remixes, and whether Fedora spins should be considered products-in-development.
Fedora Spins right now serve as effectively alternate remixes of the Linux distribution. Among the Fedora Spins that exist today include KDE and Xfce versions along with other niche areas like security and KDE scientific versions. There's also a games spin, design suite, and other flavors as shown at spins.fedoraproject.org.
Fedora Spins will ultimately change under Fedora.Next, but how it will change is what's being discussed right now. For those concerned Fedora Spins users you can find this new mailing list thread on the Fedora devel list.
