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


FUDCon wound to a close, and Nicu Buceli and Joerg Simon posted[1][2] some goodbye photos.

Daniel Walsh asked[3] (but more importantly, answered) the question "How do I tell if an access was added in the latest policy release?" using the sesearch and audit2why tools from SELinux.

Dave Jones suggested[4] that unreleased kernels could use some extra testing love. "Producing RPM builds of the rawhide kernel for our already released Fedoras...What I’m toying with doing is some devel kernels for Fedora 11 that are built outside of the Fedora build system."

John Babich explained[5] how to install Fedora along-side Vista.

Adam Williamson described[6] the new policies around the "severity" and "priority" fields in Fedora's Bugzilla. Additionally, Adam has been working "to improve and create pages dedicated to explaining how to debug issues in particular components, and how to provide appropriate information when filing bugs on those components" as well as a project called Fit and Finish[7] "to work on the small details that make a polished desktop experience."

Adam John Miller wrote[8] about Firefox and "The progression of popularity and the stigma of the Geek." The post covers the evolution of Netscape to Firefox and today's calls for WebKit everywhere.

Jeroen van Meeuwen proposed[9] that Fedora 12 should be supported with an additional 6-month "Extended Life Cycle" consisting of only security fixes, when the End-Of-Life policy would otherwise be put into place.
