Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide. This edition covers highlights from the past two weeks.

Karel Zak described[9] the new unshare command that is part of util-linux-ng 2.17. "The unshare(1) is a new command line interface to unshare Linux syscall and allows a program to run with some parts of the process execution context unshared from parent."
