Daniel Walsh described[1] some recent changes to the way SELinux deals with unconfined domains and users.

Tom Callaway explained[2] a few intricacies relating to trademarks. He also explained how he worked with a Fedora rebuild to ensure that Fedora's trademarks were protected.

Adam Williamson summarized[3] "The Great Mixer Debate" (see also FWN173) together with nice screenshots. Without going into too many details, the volume control systems in Fedora 11 have been changed and a great debate ensued.

Harish Pillay attended[4] a Microsoft Interoperability event in which the topic of software patents was discussed.

Heherson Pagcaliwagan showed off[5] some photos from a Geek Camp[6] in Batangas City, Philippines.

Richard W.M. Jones wrote[7] a tutorial explaining how to extend libguestfs.

James Antill found[8] an interesting way of searching for all "the BugZilla tickets which I've looked at 'recently'" (other than archiving all of the bugzilla mails into a giant folder).

Jeremy Katz questioned[9] the relevance of PPC as a primary architecture for Fedora.

Lubomir Rintel released[10] shortrpm, a tool to allow rpmbuild to short-circuit already completed parts of a build, instead of starting from scratch every time.

Luis Villa shared[11] his thoughts on the pending lawsuit between RealNetworks and the MPAA regarding the legality of Real's RealDVD software.

In a later (unrelated) post, Luis Villa posted[12] a response to a recent controversy resulting from potentially offensive slides being presented at a conference.

John Poelstra described[13] Test Days, their usefulness and recent successes in the run up to Fedora 11.

John Palmier reached out[14] for donations to the GNOME Foundation in order to continue developments and retain their new Executive Director.
