There were packages suggested by <buredoRUNofthecyborg> that
can be added
into the spin which we can brainstorm, that needs some discussion from
others. We tried to cover some of it in a meeting but weren't able to
discuss all of them. So, how about discussing it asynchronously here.
One thing to consider is:
- The package should be FOSS within a good license for Fedora.
- If the package is not packaged yet, someone from the SiG can help with
packaging and maintaining it.
So, here are the packages that weren't discussed:
- Clipboard manager: GPaste?
- Torrent Client: Fragments? Transmission? rtorrent ?
- Image Viewer: Feh? EOM?
- File manager: Caja (fewer deps) MC? rover ?
I am using pcmanfm, it has few dependencies (but is QT based)
- ghostwriter (Markdown, not essential)
- System Monitor: Deepin System Monitor (looks good) htop | ytop or ctop ?
htop, maybe bashtop, although the latter is pretty fat imho already (it
causes a noticeable CPU load on my old x200).
- i3lock-fancy (nasirhm is working on packaging it, due to a
issue with a dependency is causing a issue here.)
- LibreOffice? XFCE Office ?
+1 on LibreOffice or none, afaik it is the only really viable FLOSS
I'd throw in mate-screenshot in here as well
- Email client: mutt ?
I'm against shipping email clients. Many i3 users have a rather special
email setups (mine is a combination of mbsync/offlineimap, notmuch,
nmbug, msmtp and Emacs), so imho we're better off letting the user
choose their favorite.
- E-Reader: Foliate/ Bookworm? (Not essential)
Hm, I usually just stick with tmux + st/alacritty.
Some of these above mentioned packages could not be Free Software
good license. So it's best to keep them out of the list.
We can continue the discussion here asynchronously and once we get some
ideas, We can update the Wiki page for Brainstorm.
My main question would be: how "complete" should the spin be (= how much
software do we want to stuff into it)? Because I must admit that I
myself would have no use for an E-Reader, a clipboard manager or a
