- Red Hat will be relicensing the documentation that it maintains, to make the content available under a fully open license. Once this process is complete the documentation may be developed in conjunction with the Fedora Documentation Project, and distributed with Fedora itself. Other projects will also be able to freely use and contribute to this content. The guides for both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Directory Server will be made open - a total of over a dozen books.
- Both the existing Fedora documentation and the relicensed Red Hat documentation will use the OPL (Open Publication License), with no optional clauses. This license enables documents to be freely distributed and modified, provided that the original authors are correctly credited.
Red Hat documentation currently uses the OPL, with an optional clause that prevents modifications.

|Kadischi Weekly Report : 20 February 2005|

- RahulSundaram pointed out an article LWN: Tools to roll your own distribution - Kadischi .
Quote: Fedora fans now have the ["Kadischi"] Fedora Live CD Project, which has recently created Fedora Core 5 Test 2 live CDs
- JasperHartline posted a patch to solve the issue
mv: preserving times /livecd/ramfs/rc.d/rc.local/****which ChitleshGoorah confirmed it works.
- ChitleshGoorah posted to the list a post-install script 07service.sh . The idea behind his script is to be interactive in the default choice of services for the livecd. The script requires zenity.
- The ambassador WassimKaroui proposes alternative methode to download ["Kadischi"] via http . Some of his friends have the CVS port blocked (firewall), so he mirrored ["Kadischi"] , at least as long as CVS is the only possibilities to download it.
- ["Kadischi"] 's Doc folder (CVS version) has been updated .
