Hi Paul, I see you have placed a warning on the top of the "How to create and use Live USB" page that says "The Fedora Project has received numerous reports relating to using Fedora Live USB keys made with unetbootin. You may want to use the official livecd-tools or liveusb-creator referenced above to make Fedora Live USB keys". I (the upstream maintainer of UNetbootin) haven't heard of any such reports recently. Is this warning still valid with current versions, and if yes, where can I see these reports (there are only 2 reports at http://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/bugs/unetbootin neither of which are reproducible on the current version)? Thanks. [[User:Gezakovacs|Gezakovacs]] 01:47, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Hi Paul,
: Thanks for the prod -- I went sniffing around the wiki to find current information and found that our common bugs page has indeed [[Common_F12_bugs#Live_USB_sticks_created_with_unetbootin_do_not_work|been updated]], so I corrected that notice. We're happy to see people make Fedora Live USB keys any way that works, and I thank you for the work you did to address any previous issues! --[[User:Pfrields|pfrields]] 03:21, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

I wonder why some name suggestions (e.g. ‘Alfvén’ or ‘Lausanna’) that got a ‘initial approve’ were not approved by the board. Did the people from the board select their six prefered names for the ballot?

: That's correct, Raphael.  The [[guidelines for release names]], as linked from the name suggestions page, describe the process.  The Board decides on a shorter list and passes that to Red Hat Legal for clearance for the voting ballot. --[[User:Pfrields|pfrields]] 16:34, 8 May 2010 (UTC)

[edit] Name suggestions for Fedora 14

Hi Paul,

I wonder why some name suggestions (e.g. ‘Alfvén’ or ‘Lausanna’) that got a ‘initial approve’ were not approved by the board. Did the people from the board select their six prefered names for the ballot?

Best regards

That's correct, Raphael. The guidelines for release names, as linked from the name suggestions page, describe the process. The Board decides on a shorter list and passes that to Red Hat Legal for clearance for the voting ballot. --pfrields 16:34, 8 May 2010 (UTC)
Dear Paul,
thanks for your reply. I must have been blind that I did not notice the concerning paragraph. Shame on me! :) By the way, could you please verify my edit at guidelines for release names? The link to the voting page seemed to be at the wrong place.
