Modularity has been a very hot topic in Fedora recently. Some like the possibilities it promises, some are wary of implementation and design shortcomings, some find it already useful, some disagree with the direction completely.

How can we solve some of the problems that Modularity targets in a different approach? One significant technical ability that we have now are "easy" side-tags. Developed for the purpose of rawhide multi-package gating, they might be reused to create "mini buildroots". This talk will discuss possible solutions to the too-fast-too-slow conundrum: the approach with side-tags, but also compare that with Modularity and other approaches discussed on the mailing lists.

The talk would start with a presentation to summarize the state and proposals, their pros and cons, but then allow q&a with the audience. Some experience with current packaging practices in Fedora and package update processes are a prerequisite, but very deep detailed knowledge is not necessary.
