In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin

General

James Morris mentioned[1] how Red Hat has handled a recent 2.6.30 kernel null pointer vulnerability, and who it affects (probably no RHEL customers).

Luca Foppiano described[2] how to configure Twinkle, the QT VoIP client, to work with Fedora Talk.

Peter Hutterer continued[3] the XI2 Recipes series with "the common input events and the data they include". Peter also explained[4][5] some additional details about new XLib APIs to handle cookies and associated data.

Paul W. Frields wrote[6] about configuring and optimizing postfix for remote/disconnected operation.

Kevin Higgins posted[7] photos from the Vancouver Fedora 11 Release Party.

Michael Tiemann questioned[8] the Association for Competitive Technology's recent accusations against the European Commission "of having a bias in favor of open source."

Greg DeKoenigsberg suggested[9] 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[10] some pretty pictures of Fedora 9 package update metrics.

Seth Vidal came up with[11] 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.

Daniel Walsh added[12] another SELinux how-to, to the ongoing series, this time fixing a "denial message about vpnc_t trying to read a file labeled user_home_t."

Matthew Garrett chimed in[13] about RMS' recent comments regarding the "cult of the virgin of emacs".

Máirín Duffy displayed[14] mockups of a net system-config-selinux dialog mockup.

Marc Ferguson instructed[15] how to install Chromium (the Open Source project version of Google's Chrome web browser) on Fedora 11.

James Laska called out[16] for anyone interested in joining the Fedora QA efforts, and pointed out some exemplary guides on the Fedora Wiki to assist in debugging particular projects.

Karsten Wade explained[17] some background around the Fedora Infrastructure team's implementation of Zikula, a new content management system that will be used for various Fedora teams.

Andrew Vermilya Jamison reviewed[18] KDE4 on Fedora, from the perspective of a Gnome user.

Julian Aloofi reviewed[19] Hannah Montana Linux. Scary.
