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 three weeks.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Máirín Duffy asked[1] for a pony but really it was about "how us designers could continue to collaborate after the (London UX) hackfest was over. This has been a recurring issue, as us designers meet every year or so, at GUADEC, at UX hackfests, or at GNOME Boston Summits (or even other FLOSS events like LinuxTag) and we get some great collaborate work done during the events – but it peters off after we get settled in back home after the events." One other post from the hackfest was about a presentation[2] on an icon usability study.

Matthias Clasen created[3] a new dialog for setting a user's password, including visual password strength indicator widget.

Rajith Attapattu wrote[4] about how to set up client and server certificates for use with Apache Qpid.

Richard W.M. Jones benchmarked[5] ext2, ext3 and ext4 with and without LVM. Richard also cataloged[6] all 267 commands that Guestfish now supports. And lastly, Richard introduced[7] "Tech Talk Platinum Supreme Edition!" a new super-simple presentation software application.

Michael Tiemann explained[8] why the IIPA's position toward Open Source is problematic and wrong. "The entire position taken by IIPA is unbalanced. It relies on outdated definitions, special interests and a fear of innovation and new business model opportunities. It blends them together to abuse an outdated mechanism of the US government with a condemnation that applies to the US itself."

Jeroen van Meeuwen experimented[9] with rebuilding all of Enterprise Linus, including updates and Extras "in order to learn from it and take away a couple of notes on the subject". Find out what Jeroen learned.

For anyone interested in making UserDirs (i.e. ~username) work properly in Apache with SELinux enabled, Diego Búrigo Zacarão has [10] your solution.
