Will Woods is leaving the position as Fedora QA Lead. "But I’m not going real far – I’m moving to Red Hat Engineering, and joining the Installer team." And that means that there is a job opening within the Fedora Project.
In "This Week in Anaconda #5" Chris Lumens discussed some future plans for the installer. In particular, the user interface (and usability) is being evaluated and btrfs will be an option (though not the default) in Fedora 15.
XKB's mouse emulation has been disabled by default in X, as Peter Hutterer explains. "Like so many other things, it is a low level feature that has virtually zero desktop integration. The only way to find out whether it is on or not is to hit a key and see the mouse cursor move...If you've accidentally enabled it the only thing you may notice is that your keypad stopped working." Don't worry, you can still turn it back on.
Richard W.M. Jones wrote some sample code using libguestfs from a C program. "You might have forgotten that libguestfs is really a C library that just happens to have a lot of high level wrappers around it. But you can use the C API directly and (for a C API) it’s not too hard."
