Fedora 38 Cleared To Produce "Mobility Phosh" Spins

The Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee (FESCo) has provided their blessing to begin creating new x86_64 and AArch64 ISO images for mobile devices that feature the Phosh Wayland compositor.

Phosh is the Wayland compositor worked on by Purism and other developers as a GNOME-based Wayland shell primarily focused on mobile devices. There's been a proposal to create Fedora Linux images featuring Phosh and intended for Fedora mobile device use on x86_64 and AArch64. This proposal has now cleared voting by the FESCO committee so that it can move forward with Fedora 38 in the spring.

Fedora's Mobility SIG already packaged up Phosh and related packages into a "phosh-desktop" package group and this approval gives them the go-ahead to begin working on x86_64 and AArch64 install images for mobile devices and tablets. Separately, the Fedora Mobility folks are also eyeing Plasma Mobile images too.
