Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin

General

Mel Chua wondered[1] how e-mail message threading works and how Message IDs are generated.

The Red Hat Press Office mentioned[2] some of the happenings at the Opensource.com's "Open Your World, an online forum exploring how the open source ideals of participation, collaboration, community, transparency and meritocracy are applied beyond the technology industry."

Seth Vidal suggested[3] that you should check out the features of yum's new (in F12/F13) "history" command.

Luke Slater discussed[4] how to handle Fedora's microblogging accounts and different languages and cultures. "This is a post in response to the discussions that have been going on in relation to what exactly we should do with the Fedora microblogging accounts and one of the subjects that I’m rather concerned about is how we’re going to deal with different languages and cultures."

Richard W.M. Jones developed[5] a comcept for a graphical libguestfs browser using Lablgtk2 and OCaml.

Rob Escriva wrote[6] about bootstrapping Python projects. "I'll be sharing how I use the standard library's doctest module, Georg Brandl's sphinx package, Logilab's PyLint program and Ned Batchelder's coverage module to keep the number of inconsistencies and defects in both my code and documentation low."

Ian MacGregor had[7] some upgrade issues. "Just because xorg isn't working doesn't mean you can't get things done. Today I proved that you don't even need xorg to be able to surf the web, check email, download files, chat in IRC and have multiple windows open - though it's nice to have a working xorg. Keep some CLI apps installed and learn how to use the command line.. you never know when all of this may come in handy."

Rahul Sundaram covered[8] a few of the new features to be expected in Fedora 14.

Peter Hutterer summarized[9] the touchpad features now available in xorg. Peter also explained[10] some of the common misconceptions and issues about keyboard input under X.

Clint Savage continued[11] the discussion of "Combating Apathy in [Free and Open Source] Communities".

Mark McLoughlin announced[12] a new REST API for the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager. "The only current API for RHEV-M is a Windows Powershell plugin which provides a perfectly fine scripting interface for RHEV-M on Windows, but isn’t so easy to call remotely or to integrate with another application. By adding a REST API, we’re adding an integration interface which we hope everyone will find convenient to use."

Martin Sourada provided[13] an update on artwork for Fedora 14.

Felix Kaechele explained[14] how to filter out those annoying vuvuzelas using Fedora.

Kam Salisbury found[15] that Cygwin under Windows 7 has some minor networking issues. "Network communication also works, if you edit the Windows 7 firewall outbound rules to allow cygwin to communicate."

Andrew Overholt announced[16] the availability of Linux Tools 0.6 as part of the Helios Eclipse simultaneous release.
