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

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


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

[TomCallaway|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.

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.

Luis Villa shared[10] 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[11] a response to a recent controversy resulting from potentially offensive slides being presented at a conference.

John Poelstra described[12] Test Days, their usefulness and recent successes in the run up to Fedora 11.
