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


Tom Callaway announced[1] that glibc is finally Free Software![2]

Paul W. Frields is looking[3] for anyone who might have anything with the Fedora logo from prior to 2007. "Please go read the full announcement[4] to see what you can do to help."

There are now libguestfs binaries for Linux distributions other than Fedora[5], including OpenSUSE 11.3 and Ubuntu 10.4, thanks to the work of Richard W.M. Jones.

Karsten Wade has started planning[6] for future student programs like the Fedora Summer Coding. "We’re not sticking to summer in one hemisphere and we’re already doing projects that are beyond code. Students Contributing is descriptive of what we’re doing."

Stephen Smoogen wrote[7] about the role of Fedora, and how the perceptions of it have changed. "For a long time I was under the impression that Fedora was the replacement for Red Hat Linux...Fedora began to morph into a distribution for Innovators by Innovators."

Máirín Duffy summarized[8] the Fedora Board Meeting of 27 August, 2010.

Jon Masters suggested[9] a number of things that could benefit Fedora. "Fedora doesn’t suck, but it could be a lot more useful to a lot more people...Policy, feedback, goals, all of these things will determine how many of the things I would like to see are feasible, in line with Fedora’s longer term vision, and so forth. So let’s see a very specific vision and direction and all be much happier for it."

Jon's comments encouraged a number of other well-reasoned discussions, and Máirín Duffy[10], Alex Hudson[11] and Luca Botti [12] all chimed in with their thoughts.
