Hi folks,

You think we have enough supporters out there to crowd fund hiring a
developer to port LTSP to CentOS 7?

While I would offer to advise and supervise whoever is sponsored to work on
this, my personal time is extremely limited. It would be ideal if we could
have a veteran Fedora or Red Hat developer familiar with systemd and the
other core OS components to agree to advise this project.

Perhaps the guy who did the CentOS 6 LTSP port could be hired to do this
work? I apologize I don't recall who it was anymore.

Anyone interested in talking to the developers to find a suitable developer
to be paid and advisor, assess feasibility of crowdfunding and to operate
the campaign? I would personally donate if a good plan is formed.

Hmm, the other distros have since adopted systemd, so maybe the work
necessary to adapt LTSP to CentOS 7 wouldn't be big?

It shouldn't be difficult at all to port to RHEL7/CentOS 7. The difficult
part of porting to fedora was the ever changing pieces, config file changes
and rpms, now that its a bit more locked down the port should be doable,
also using the spice protocol seems a bit more sane these days. The NBD
module was a bit of a pain previously due to redhat not including it in
their kernel, but there are plenty other methods to boot nowadays. Also the
adaptation of systemd in other distros is also a plus, there are probably
parts of other ltsp distro files that could be commonly included.

Good news ... one of the upstream LTSP developers is interested in
launching a crowdfunding campaign for development toward LTSP6, which would
modernize the entire platform. The development necessary to modernize for
LTSP would include things like pure systemd support, and things we never
fully supported in the past in K12LInux in the past like fat client mode.
He agreed that Fedora and CentOS would be supported target platforms. He
said he will be able to work on this in September.

Could you folks find people using LTSP on any distribution and ask if they
will be willing to support a crowdfunding campaign coming in the August or
September timeframe.
