The Red Hat Press Office mentioned some of the happenings at the Opensource.com's "Open Your World, an online forum exploring how the open source ideals of participation, collaboration, community, transparency and meritocracy are applied beyond the technology industry."
Luke Slater discussed how to handle Fedora's microblogging accounts and different languages and cultures. "This is a post in response to the discussions that have been going on in relation to what exactly we should do with the Fedora microblogging accounts and one of the subjects that I’m rather concerned about is how we’re going to deal with different languages and cultures."
Rob Escriva wrote about bootstrapping Python projects. "I'll be sharing how I use the standard library's doctest module, Georg Brandl's sphinx package, Logilab's PyLint program and Ned Batchelder's coverage module to keep the number of inconsistencies and defects in both my code and documentation low."
Ian MacGregor had some upgrade issues. "Just because xorg isn't working doesn't mean you can't get things done. Today I proved that you don't even need xorg to be able to surf the web, check email, download files, chat in IRC and have multiple windows open - though it's nice to have a working xorg. Keep some CLI apps installed and learn how to use the command line.. you never know when all of this may come in handy."
Mark McLoughlin announced a new REST API for the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager. "The only current API for RHEV-M is a Windows Powershell plugin which provides a perfectly fine scripting interface for RHEV-M on Windows, but isn’t so easy to call remotely or to integrate with another application. By adding a REST API, we’re adding an integration interface which we hope everyone will find convenient to use."
Kam Salisbury found that Cygwin under Windows 7 has some minor networking issues. "Network communication also works, if you edit the Windows 7 firewall outbound rules to allow cygwin to communicate."
