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


Luke Slater mentioned[1] that "we've recently acquired the username 'Fedora' on Twitter and we're using this event as the catalyst to start Fedora's foray into the world of Microblogging (or relaunch it, perhaps...). We're currently deciding on what exactly to do in respect to this and a discussion took place in the Fedora Marketing meeting this Tuesday..."

Rahul Sundaram announced[2] that three new features have been approved for Fedora 14: More content in live images, faster picture browsing (replacing libjpeg with libjpeg-turbo) and Multi-path device support including bootup.

Michael DeHaan suggested[3] a way to use Google Analytics to help track down (and presumably fix) common error messages.

John Palmier provided[4] an update on the status of Multitouch in Fedora.

Richard W.M. Jones found[5] that Linux now has a set of APIs for freezing ("Quiescing") filesystems.

Venkatesh Hariharan posted[6] an excerpt from Flash Co-Creator Jonathan Gay, discussing "the challenges they faced in using H.264 standard."

Ian Weller discussed[7] how Fedora metrics are tracked, and the process of releasing the (anonymized) raw data that was used to produce the final statistics.

Clint Savage is trying to comabt[8] apathy, which "is what kills communities around the globe" and how to get people to contribute back.
