General

Luca Foppiano described[1] how to configure Twinkle, the QT VoIP client, to work with Fedora Talk.

Peter Hutterer continued[2] the XI2 Recipes series with "the common input events and the data they include". Peter also explained[3][4] some additional details about new XLib APIs to handle cookies and associated data.

Paul W. Frields wrote[5] about configuring and optimizing postfix for remote/disconnected operation.

Kevin Higgins posted[6] photos from the Vancouver Fedora 11 Release Party.

Michael Tiemann questioned[7] the Association for Competitive Technology's recent accusations against the European Commission "of having a bias in favor of open source."

Greg DeKoenigsberg suggested[8] that "creating a strong 'patch culture'" for Spacewalk (and by extension, open source projects in general) can be accomplished by setting a strong example. "People behave as they see others behave."

Luke Macken posted[9] some pretty pictures of Fedora 9 package update metrics.

Seth Vidal came up with[10] a list of "critical path" packages "that require special care when updating in rawhide and releases". For more information, see the Critical Path Packages Proposal.
