Planet Fedora

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

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Dave Jones answers[*] some frequently asked questions and common misconceptions regarding Virtual Memory in Linux


Tom Tromey continued[*] his excellent series on scripting and extending GDB with Python, including some PyGTK widgetry[*]



Michael DeHaan contemplates the complexity of software projects and how to encourage new people to get involved and contribute. "Projects that have a lot of complex interrelationships and need a lot of experience with the codebase (that is acquired over a long period of time) are less apt to attract casual contributions"[*]


Jesse Keating announced[*] a new Fedora Hosted project, Offtrac: "Offtrac is my attempt at creating a python library for interacting with trac via xmlrpc." The project can already perform a number of tasks including querying, retrieving and creating tickets and milestones.


Kulbir Saini presented[*] some ideas for hacking a Linux install to make it boot faster



Folks are still posting photos and writeups of their experience at FOSS.IN. It really sounds like an amazing time was had by all.
