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


Richard W.M. Jones posted the first five[1][2][3][4][5] parts to a series "A beginners guide to OCaml internals. Topics covered include all kinds of internal details such as the different heaps and garbage collection.

Luis Villa asked[6] "how do busy people deal with identica/twitter?"

Michael DeHaan shared[7] a humorous "Tech Support Conversation With Parents".

Luca Botti wrote[8] a tutorial on installing Sun's Java on Fedora, without breaking RPM.

Jeroen van Meeuwen wondered[9] about possible solutions to the space constraints for Fedora Live CDs. Could document or additional locales be dropped? Should Live CDs be dropped altogether (leaving Live DVDs)?

Venkatesh Hariharan republished[10] an article originally from the August 2009 edition of Network Computing's India edition, titled "The Power of Open Source Development".

Peter Hutterer made[11] the case for ZSH (ed: Agreed, ZSH rocks!) while Mathieu Bridon scripted[12] bash (easily translatable to ZSH) to make the shell prompt git aware.

Máirín Duffy proposed[13] a few ideas for a new Fedora website design.

Ujjwol Lamichhane presented[14] (at BarCamp Kathmandu 2009[15]) all about संस्कृत (Sanskrit) and its relation to (and usage in) computing.
