Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

As you may have noticed, FWN's Planet Fedora beat has been on a vacation for the past few weeks. Well, we're back. This week's coverage will include a number of selections from the past month or so.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin

General

John Poelstra explained[1] how shipping on time can be a feature for Fedora 14. "In the grand scheme of things, two weeks late on a software release is hardly anything, and yet, given a choice, I’d like Fedora to be known as the distribution that always ships on time."

Máirín Duffy decided to start blogging the Fedora Board meetings. So far, posts are up from the July 2, 2010[2] and July 16[3] meetings. Highlights include the announcement of a new Fedora Project leader (Jared Smith), a trial change in the board meeting format and information about all Fedora contributors getting ponies.

In a separate series of posts, Máirín updated[4] us on the status of the Fedora websites since "the Fedora Design team and Fedora Websites team along with the Fedora Board have been working towards a completely updated web presence for Fedora over the past couple of releases." Included is a mockup[5] for the front page of the Fedora Project website and potential fedoraproject.org page headers[6].

Scott Williams experimented[7] with purchasing brand name (and other) laptops, sans Windows.

Richard W.M. Jones suggested [8] a number of ways in which command line tools can be made more script friendly.

Luis Villa added[9] some thoughts about the Bilski Supreme Court patent case.
