This page explains how to add yourself to the blog aggregator, called a 'planet'.

This page explains what you need to do to get your blog feed added. Planet has more details about the Fedora Project planet.

Steps: c

  1. As a Fedora contributor you must have a Fedora Account System (FAS) account, have signed the contributor agreement (CLA), and be a member of at least one other group in FAS. The 'summer-coding' group is a good group to belong to, along with 'cla_done' that you are added to when you complete the CLA.
  2. Start by logging in to your account. You must be using the SSH key that you uploaded into the FAS, and your userspace is created the first time you log in:
  3. Create a file named .planet.summer-coding in the root of your home directory on The contents of the file follow this pattern:
    name = Your Name
    face =
    f The first line in brackets is the URL of your rss/rss2/atom feed. The next line is your name as you want it to appear on the aggregator. The final line is optional and is the complete URL to your hackergotchi/personal icon. There should be no spaces or tabs preceeding ANY of the above lines in your </code>.planet.summer-coding</code> file. You can have more than one entry in your .planet file - just add another one in the same format.
  4. </ol>

    The first line of the .planet file (the link) is the link to the rss/atom feed of your blog. Don't put the your blog URL there.

    That's all you have to do to get added to the planet. Feel free to email admin at for help.

    If this is of any help, here is a small screencast illustrating the steps needed to create and upload your own .planet file:
