Over the past couple years we have been working to restructure the distro in terms of a higher value component called a "module." We had planned to deliver the first production version of the modular distro with F27. However, as we ran up to the release the result had some  problems that we didn't feel comfortable shipping.

Come hear about why we started down this road and our milestones along the way. We will also discuss the details of why the approach we had failed and why our new approach will work.. We will also demonstrate an early version of the "addon approach." We will also demonstrate some of the advantages of a modular-aware distribution to container & system management.
