General

The Red Hat Press office announced[1] the availability of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 2.2 which includes: Virtual desktop support, Import and export, V2V : Virtual machine conversion, a Data Warehouse, and increased performance.

In other virtualization news, Richard W.M. Jones provided lots of libguestfs tips: Edit the Windows Registry in your VMs from the host[2], using virt-rescue on raw file or disk images (in addition to VM images)[3], quickly getting help in guestfish[4], using virt-df to find out when filesystems are full[5] (and an update[6]) and using hivex to unpack a Windows Boot Configuration Data (BCD) hive[7].

Luis Villa wrote[8] a piece on opensource.com about lawyers and open source. "There is a fairly common perception among FOSS hackers that there is no community of FOSS lawyers. Scratch the surface, though, and it turns out that- despite our handicaps- the FOSS legal community is there and growing. Since this question recently came up in the context of Mozilla's decision to revise the MPL, I thought it might be a good time to talk about this community here at opensource.com."

Rajith Attapattu posted[9] a couple pieces on managing software projects, starting with "The Way We Set It Up Is How It Ends Up" and continuing[10] "Dealing With Change".

Máirín Duffy mentioned[11] the creation of "A K12 Educator’s Guide to Open Source Software" with the goal of "introducing elementary school children to free & open source software, particularly creative tool."

Jeff Sheltren announced[12] that the Open Source textbook on Open Source has been completed, and Greg DeKoenigsberg wrote[13] an article about it on opensource.com, titles "Can Professors Teach Open Source?"

Karsten Wade made a number of announcements regarding Fedora's Summer Coding 2010 opportunities (See also the special section of this weeks Fedora Weekly News). First[14], there is a call for sponsors. That means universities, corporations, foundations, individuals and creative ideas. Ideas should be submitted by April 9[15]. And Karsten's latest post has[16] lots of useful links for getting involved and finding out more.
