Planet Fedora

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

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Michael DeHaan wrote an essay, Academics, Innovation, Patents, And a Path Beyond?[1], about FOSS, cross-organizational collaboration and encouraging innovation

Jef Spaleta had some ideas[2] about "how to do more focused new contributor recruitment and training in Fedora" and using the Mugshot online service to gather statistics and create personalized notifications (invitations) to its users

Máirín Duffy created[3] a list of questions (and provoked a healthy discussion) that could be used to develop a set of guidelines for notifications ("Chatty Applications")

Greg DeKoenigsberg wrote[4] about some of the work going in to synchronizing Fedora and OLPC efforts

James Morris explained[5] some of the security changes that have gone in to the latest (2.6.28) Linux Kernel

Karsten Wade asked why aren’t you publishing on the Fedora wiki?[6] and follows up with a set of thoughts to encourage documentation contributions

After a few Fedora 10 frustrations, Scott Williams tried-out[7] OpenSuSE and found some good bits and some not-so-good bits

The latest Red Hat Magazine includes a video interview of Michael DeHann discussing Cobbler and and how it simplifies network installations for datacenters and other large-scale linux environments[8]

James Laska continued[9] his tutorial on Creating a virtual test lab (using tools such as Cobbler, Koan and SNAKE)

David Nalley thanked[10] HP for providing Mini-notes (with Linux preinstalled!) for Fedora Ambassadors
