Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide. This edition covers highlights from the past three weeks.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Justin O'Brien was one of many to announce[1] that the Fedora 13 Alpha has been released. "We need your help to make Fedora 13 the best release yet, so please take a moment of your time to download and try out the Alpha and make sure the things that are important to you are working. If you find a bug, please report it – every bug you uncover is a chance to improve the experience for millions of Fedora users worldwide. Together, we can make Fedora a rock-solid distribution."

Richard W.M. Jones shared[2] a tip: How to "use SystemTap to monitor SELinux changes to files". The problem: "Something unknown was changing the labels on certain devices behind my back. We couldn’t find out what it was using ordinary diagnostics, so I decided to investigate if we could do this with SystemTap."

Aamir Aijaz Bhutto wrote[3] an excellent essay on "Open Source Philosophy" including a brief history of the movement.

Dave Malcolm mused[4] on the topic of "What variability exists within proposed updates to the Fedora package collection?"

Joshua Wulf posted[5] a giant comic-like diagram explaining what Publican is.

Nicu Buceli explained[6] how to create a rocket ship using Inkscape.

Max Spevack asked[7]: Are Fedora Spins a thread or a menace? Max shared some "thoughts about Fedora's Spins -- both the idea behind having spins, and some of the marketing-related challenges that exist as a result."
