Hi guys and Rhea,
I'm Tom (aka tmds). I have been a .NET enthusiast since 2002. For the past
10 years I've worked as an embedded software engineer programming c++ on
self-brew Linux. The last 4 years I've been doing some open source
typically with a focus on .NET and Linux. I've contributed a bit to
existing projects and I'm also maintaining some of my own (
https://github.com/tmds). I was very happy to see .NET Core come and joined
Red Hat to do .NET&Linux as a job. I've only been using Fedora for a couple
of months. If you're into twitter, I'm @tomdeseyn.
so the Friday 1pm UTC time simply sucks for us, as we are basically missing
half of the team...
I think that Tuesday 7pm UTC would work a lot better - *please reply to
this email* with your opinion and availability for this time.
Example reply: "I like Tuesday 7pm" or "I can not attend on tuesday 7pm" or
"I can attend, but i may have some other meeting at work on tuesday and may
be late..." etc etc =]
You are kindly invited to the meeting:
DotNet IRC Meeting on 2016-11-11 from 13:00:00 to 14:00:00 UTC
The meeting will be about:
This meeting is for team members of the DotNet team. The weekly agenda is always posted on the DotNet [wiki page](https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DotNet), although it is subject to change depending on time and context of what is going around the Fedora Project.
I have already done some investigations on this, so my findings (and
questions) might help the SIG to get started on packaging dotnet for
To comply to the rules of Fedora packaging, the packages must be able
to build themselves. The exception is a bootstrap ( and ), where
we are allowed to use provided binaries, with approval from the
Some trouble will be the number of nuget packages that are pulled in
during the build process. We need to package each individually I
From my current understanding, we have these first candidates for packages:
* dotnet-cli 
* dotnet-coreclr 
* dotnet-corefx 
* msbuild 
If I understand correctly, msbuild can be built with target Mono or
There is ongoing work on the xplat branch of msbuild to target Mono .
The question if we end up having two packages, mono-msbuild and dotnet-msbuild?
Is mono-msbuild at all useful for dotnet, ie. can we compile dotnet
packages with mono-msbuild? That needs to be investigated.
dotnet-corefx depends on dotnet-coreclr?
Both depend on dotnet-cli?
Are those statements correct?
I have not tried that yet.
Omair, by the way, good to have you onboard!
Can you shed some light on these questions?
All the best,
So what we need to do now, is to come up with a good time when (ideally)
everyone would be able to attend a meeting next week. We should make it a
regular weekly meeting in order to actually get somewhere in long term.
We can use this page to grab times in your timezones. Select your
timezone on top of the page and then mark the times when you are available.
When you're done, sign it with your irc nick and submit. I already chose
the times that should more or less fine for both the US and EU. Don't
forget to exclude the times when you're already attending some other
regular meeting :]
You can find agenda for the first meeting on pagure
*ps: redhatters talk to your manager if you need to attend during working
