Planet Fedora

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

General

Thorsten Leemhuis expressed[1] some concern over important communication and decisions taking place over synchronous/real-time mediums (like IRC or conferences like FUDcon) without the ability for people unable to attend to participate. Michael DeHaan agreed[2] and used a personal example of trying to maintain software that runs on EL-4 through Fedora 11 to explain the importance. "I have to use the old libraries and mostly only get to see new releases as things that break API compatibility or bring new bugs...I care about the environment more than the technology." Michael continued, "While many developers see Fedora is about technology, as a mostly "upstream" guy, the joy I find in it is really just about collaboration and working with people all over the globe."

Jef Spaleta continued[3] a disagreement with Mark Shuttleworth over the fact that Canonical has yet to open source some of the community-related components of Launchpad.

Dave Jones mentioned[4] an upcoming change to the p4-clockmod driver. "It no longer exports a cpufreq interface to sysfs. This will no doubt have some people complaining that they can no longer change their CPU frequency. The thing is, they never could." He then explains why such a feature ever existed.

Harish Pillay compared[5] the new White House[6] website copyright policy with that of a number of nations.

Sebastian Dziallas and the Fedora Education SIG[7] announced[8] the preview of an unbranded Education Remix. "As this is still based on F10, the main purpose is to gather feedback concerning the spin for F11."

Michael DeHaan wrote[9] about some of the advancements being made in order to support the provisioning of large datacenters and large-scale virtualization setups under Fedora.

How-To

James Morris explained[1] how to work around an issue where MacBooks have trouble talking to projectors over the VGA output.

John Poelstra started[2] an interesting thread[3,4,5,6,7,8] (only some of which was serious) about disabling the system bell. Who knew that such an ancient component (a relic of computers from decades ago when soundcards had yet to be invented) could be so interesting?
