The purpose of this working group is to oversee the health and maintenance of the s390x port of various Linux distributions to ensure that the s390x port remains a supported architecture for them all. To this end, the group will collaborate on shared challenges and successes, work together to nurture new contributors, and make sure they also have the infrastructure they need.

  • Working group name: Linux Distributions Working Group
  • Goals of the working group
    • Create a place to collaborate across Linux Distributions via an OMP mailing list, wiki, and chat.
    • Provide a space for distributions to request for help on their port.
    • Ensure any and all infrastructure required is available for supporting the ports.
    • Better support from IBM to fix s390x specific bugs
  • Non-goals of the working group
    • Be directly responsible for the s390x port contents.
    • Creating a fork or duplicating any of the existing infrastructure or processes maintained by the distributions.
    • Make statements suggesting that any distribution is preferred over any other supporting the s390x architecture.
  • Deliverables
    • Wiki page that links to all resources for participating distributions.
    • A living document for sharing s390x porting tips that are shared across distributions.
    • Identification and nurturing of new contributors for distributions needing them.

The TAC member sponsor of this working group is Mark Post.
