Spins keepalive SOP
This document outlines procedures for the Spins keepalive process. This process was approved by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee to ensure that Spins and Labs are actively maintained.
The first step is to create keepalive tickets for each Spin/Lab. Create these in the schedule repo.

<@maintainer ID(s)> FESCo [approved a requirement](https://pagure.io/fesco/issue/1972) that Spin/Labs owners send keepalive request in order to keep building the spin or lab. Please confirm that you want the <Spin/Lab name> to continue for Fedora Linux <release>as the comment.

FESco previously approved a requirement that Spin/Labs owners send a keepalive request in order to keep building the spin or lab. I have opened Pagure issues for all Spins and Labs for this release. If you are the owner of one of those spins and labs, please reply in the appropriate ticket by <DATE>> to indicate the spin should continue to be produced. If there is a spin or lab that does not have an open ticket, please create one. The reasoning for this is to not ship spins that are not actively maintained. Future improvements to the release process that will allow for teams to self-publish solutions will eventually remove the need for these keepalives.  https://pagure.io/fedora-pgm/schedule/issues?status=Open&tags=spins+keepalive  https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/releases/f<RELEASE>/spins/  https://pagure.io/fedora-pgm/schedule/new_issue
You may choose to nudge maintainers after a week.
The following Spins/Labs maintainers have not indicated they wish to continue producing the deliverables for the upcoming release. Any that have not been adopted in one week will be dropped. * <list of Spins/Labs>
If there are still Spins/Labs that have not been adopted or had the current maintainer send a keepalive,
