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


Karsten Wade pondered[1] "a solution for a K12 strategy, or Treating our community leadership team like a FOSS project." Karsten imagines "a person, or a few people, deeply passionate about open source, young people, and education. We recognize that a big selling point for people is that FOSS can save cash-strapped schools a lot of budget. However, we think the higher goal is to teach open source participation" and looks back at how different communities (for example Fedora) have influenced others (such as RHEL).

Máirín Duffy outlined[2] the topics covered by the August 6 Fedora Board meeting.

Peter Hutterer mentioned[3] that the first draft of a multitouch protocol specification for X has been published.

Fabian A. Scherschel test drove[4] the Gnome 3 Shell. But more importantly, Fabian wrote up the (fairly simple) steps to build the Gnome 3 Shell from Gnome's Git repository.

Nelson Marques shared[5] some well reasoned suggestions on ways that Fedora can improve.

Matt Domsch found[6] an interview by of Jared Smith, the new Fedora Project Leader.
