>I have too many ideas. So I’m going to write them down and then most likely forget about them.
Ubuntu Live CD in 192 Mb of ram
- Some daemons are not needed unless you want to do certain things.
- I believe an example of this is Avahi. It’s really not needed as you don’t have any music to share on a liveCD. Nice to test, but that’s why it is on-demand.
- Cupsys is another example
- Evolution also starts a lot of unneeded processes (although I’m not sure if upstart cares)
- Furthermore if the system doesn’t have enough RAM just forget about Avahi at all.
- Run in a “Reduced Functionality Mode” where it doesn’t run RAM intensive applications on low memory. Aka No OpenOffice, No Evolution in the menus at all.
- Running them will usually make the liveCD unresponsive
- I am aware I stole “RFM” from Windows Vista, but it has a completely different purpose to it
- Mono is on the liveCD for two programs, F-Spot and TomBoy Notes. I am unaware of any other language we have on the liveCD for just two applications.
- Plus, I just don’t like Mono (Nytimes read the bottom of the page).
- Bootchart is a tool that lets you log how the start up went
- Let’s get it on some dev liveCDs and get some hard data on how things are going.
Launchpad Up/Down Stream Integration
- Downstreams (Corporations)
- Let them bring Launchpad in house so they can check bugs for Trade Secrets, before pushing them to the Launchpad.net
- Integrate with Bugzilla, Trac, etc. Allowing let’s say a Firefox developer without a launchpad account to pull a bug out of launchpad, validate, fix it, etc.
- Also let’s launchpad pull bugs from Bugzilla, and trac automatically
Comments? Questions? Objections? Wanna do it? And yes I am aware that my “upstart-*” sections goes out of the scope of upstart.
