Planet Fedora

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

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin


Dave Malcolm developed[1],[2] a command line app called show that allows for access to various log files through an SQL-like interface. It supports aggregates and can handle Apache access logs, /var/log/messages and /var/log/secure and various others using backends from Augeas[3] for configuration files like /etc/passwd.

Paul W. Frields explained[4] how to convert virtual disk images between various formats using utilities from qemu.

Rakesh Pandit wrote[5] a "Report for National Institute of Technology Hamirpur Software Activity Workshop" describing an event where students were trained in software development using Free and Open Source Software.

Nicu Buceli announced[6] that the Open Clipart Library has reached its goal of 10,000 images.

Richard W.M. Jones posted[7] a visualization of RPM dependencies by size, as part of his quest to build a minimal Fedora installation. A later followup noted[8] that very different results occur depending on how the dependencies are traversed (in this case, breadth-first traversal versus depth-first). He then released[9] a tool, rpmdepsize[10] to allow users to generate their own dependency visualizations.
