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


Seth Vidal created[1] a proof-of-concept for a Fedora "app store", in the form of a yum module.

Paul Whalen posted[2]an update on the status of building Fedora for ARM using Koji.

Matthias Clasen shared[3] a job opening at Red Hat in Boston, working on Gnome.

Máirín Duffy announced[4] that Matt Jadud, a Computer Science professor at Allegheny College teaching a course on interaction design, is "offering up free interaction design for free & open source projects."

Jared Smith wrote[5] a retrospective of the past month as fearless leader of the Fedora Project. "I’m new to Red Hat as well — so in some way, it feels like I’m starting at two new jobs at the same time. Since so many people have asked me how things are going, I thought I’d share a bit about my thoughts so far."

David Cantrell was excited[6]to hear that the ISC have merged the longstanding LDAP patch into their DHCP server. So now anyone wanting LDAP support for their DHCP server's database will shortly be able to use the vanilla ISC DHCP sources, instead of having to add the patch manually.

Do you miss programming in Logo? Cătălin Feştilă found[7] PythonTurtle!

Alexander Kurtakov is looking[8] for a few Java gurus who want to get involved with Fedora. "There are only a few active Java packagers in Fedora. And if one of them stops doing packaging we are in big problem."

Lennart Poettering wrote[9] all about[10] systemd (the new startup daemon/init replacement for Fedora), its highlights, features and status.
