Planet Fedora

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora - an aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Chris Ball posted[1] a video and brief description of some patches to the Vino VNC server to support the multiple pointers on X over VNC, so there will be no more fighting over the mouse cursor when connecting into another computer.

Mark J. Wielaard wrote[2] about what he does for a living at Red Hat, including a link to a LWN article that he wrote that provides a high-level overview of Systemtap.

John J. McDonough described[3] some of the upcoming changes to the Fedora Docs project, including its leadership.

Matthew Garrett discuessed[4] some of the issues associated with power management under Linux and how "to make it sufficiently useful and inobtrusive that manual configuration is almost never required."

Gary Benson shared[5],[6],[7],[8],[9] a series of articles that he wrote about the internals of Zero and Shark (projects which extend OpenJDK to let it run on new platforms without additional and often cumbersome low-level CPU-specific support).

Martin Sourada developed[10] a set of scripts "which are intended to ease the life of echo-icon artist - they create new icons from template, are able to add icons/symlinks to echo icon theme and add manage their local git repository."

Matthew Daniels mused[11] on the topic of "Social Responsibility" and getting technology out into people's hands everywhere and making all of this social hardware and software accessible.

Jonathan Roberts posted[12],[13] some thoughts about how Gnome 3.0 could handle locating information ("Ubiquitous Search") and saving things automatically.
