Rob Tiller, Vice President and Assistant General Counsel, IP at Red Hat responded to concerns within the community about Red Hat's patenting efforts and the Red Hat Patent Policy. Paul W. Frields wrote about the response, and a lively discussion in the comments ensued.
Jef Spaleta wrote his "most important Fedora blog post ever" which revolves around the "NSF sponsored workshop on Sustainable Cyberinfrastructure". The workshop is important "for people who believe in either the function of basic science research as a catalyst for technical and social progress or people who believe strongly in open development methodologies as a catalyst for deeper and more impactful collaborations. Even more so if you happen to be in the union of those groups and a US citizen and care about how the NSF as a Federal agency goes about funding research and education."
Richard W.M. Jones worked on building a minimal Fedora installation and managed to get an installed system down to 225MB. He later responded to a comment about why it makes sense to minimize Fedora as opposed to building a custom minimal distribution. And then he managed to get the minimal distribution down to 15.9MB.
