Cross-project best practices for integration with Linux distributions

Linux distributions like Debian, Fedora, RHEL, SUSE, and Ubuntu play an important part in the integration of Open Infrastructure projects, both as a stable base for infrastructure projects to build on, and as a stable distribution channel for those same infrastructure projects to reach users and operators.

Consuming or packaging a Linux distribution isn't a rigid artform, there are many different approaches that infrastructure projects can take. But, some approaches work better than others, and some approaches may meet the needs of a particular infrastructure project better than others. This session will open up a conversation around the experiences different projects have had, what worked well and what didn't, lessons learned along the way, and tips for successful integration. Members of the communities of all the OpenStack Foundation projects and pilot projects are welcome!
