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


Richard W.M. Jones added[1] another tool to the virt-* arsenal of tools, virt-top to replace xentop. Also it works in Japenese. Richard also explained[2] some of the difficulties that make Virtual Machine conversions difficult.

Michael Tiemann noted[3] the London Stock Exchange's "about-face in IT policy" in which they are switching to a Linux-based solution.

Máirín Duffy continued[4] the mockups for the website redesign. In particular, Máirín wants to "bling your spin"[5]. "We’ve come up with a new design. This is part of an overall effort commissioned by the Fedora Project Board to improve the Fedora download experience. The initial design includes individual spin details pages." So don't forget to send in your spin information[6].

Paul W. Frields explained[7] some of the changes that may be taking place due to the Fedora 12 beta being pushed back, and how you can help.

Jeremy Katz took a look[8] at a number of deployment systems. "Given that this seemed like a pretty typical problem, I figured I’d take a look and see what open source projects exist out there to see if any of them were suitable or could be at least close to a good fit for what we need and want. Unfortunately, I was kind of disappointed..."

Mike McGrath asked[9],[10] (mostly answered) the question "What is Fedora?" continuing a discussion from the Fedora Advisory Board list[11].
