Chromium and Linux Distributions - Paweł Hajdan, Jr., Google

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Chromium is an open-source web browser project, packaged by distributions like Debian, Ubuntu, Arch and Gentoo among others, but notably not Fedora. In 2009 an article called "Chromium: Why it isn't in Fedora yet as a proper package" by Tom Callaway explained some reasons for that. In this presentation, Paweł Hajdan, Jr. will review the original article and state of Chromium as of 2014, explaining what the project is doing to accommodate needs, guidelines, and policies of Linux distributions (such as using system libraries), and what are the main challenges it faces.
