From Fedora Project Wiki

This page is the home of the Feature profiles for the F13 release. For more information on what feature profiles are or how this deliverable was created, see Feature profiles SOP.


For each feature, the marketing owner should do several things:

  1. Create a wiki page that can be the home of the work that you do.
  2. Conduct an interview with the primary developer(s). Written, podcast, or both. Stickster has written up a great wiki on how to make a podcast for those that are interested.
  3. Make sure that the feature is reflected on the talking points.
  4. Prepare a tutorial or screenshot tour of the feature.

If you have any questions about these, or need any help, please do not be shy about asking on fedora-marketing-list! You can also reference the Fedora 12 In-depth features to see how this process has been done previously.


Feature Owner Reference page Notes
Python in Fedora 13 Mel Chua This is part of a marketing campaign to make Fedora easier for Python developers to use. and you Paul Frields We aren't the first users or the primary developers here, but we do want to profile this because it's a cool feature that people should be aware of and use - the benefit to the Fedora community is to encourage broader thinking about media and what media means, since we seem to be stuck in a "media == CDs/DVDs!" mindset.
Hardware enablements in Fedora 13 Robyn Bergeron This feature profile hits Freedom, Features, and First - and Friends by way of how some of these were collaboratively engineered. The talking points covered in this feature profile will include "experimental 3D extended to free Nouveau driver," "print driver installation," and "color management."
btrfs in Fedora 13 David Nalley This is an excellent engineering story - upstream commitment from Red Hat into this feature, a lot of engineering work by folks at OLPC (which is Fedora's biggest downstream deployment), and can interview developers and testers all the way up and down the stream.
NetworkManager Justin O'Brien This is an important package to almost all users. Improvemnts to Dial-up and bluetooth will help users that may not be fortunate enough to have good reliable high speed internets, and being able to do this in the CLI is a cool feature and could aid in sorting out X issues.
