Planet Fedora

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

Dimitris Glezos analyzed[1] how Fedora's Localization community has grown (hint: a lot).

Will Woods mentioned[2] that in Fedora 11, all of the x86 that were previously .i386 will be replaced with .i586 (with requisite kernel arch changes too).

Jef Spaleta asked[3]: "How do we want casual users to do a Fedora Desktop install?" In other words, should Fedora be pushing new users towards DVD install media, or installable Live CDs?

Joseph Smidt wrote[4] about the massive number of users downloading Fedora. According to the statistics[5], around 100,000 new users have started using Fedora 10 since Fedora 9 (based on unique IPs checking in using yum).

Jeroen van Meeuwen responded[6] to an earlier post (that may have lacked context) by explaining how certain dependency checks would be handled in Cobbler for ris-linux and Windows provisioning.

David Lutterkort explained[7] how you can use Augeas and XPath to easily and uniformly query a system's configuration files.

Bastien Nocera boasted[8] about the new Gnome Volume Applet.
