A few days ago, I mentioned there is no one behind kadischi's
development team and it will be EOL'ed this saturday.
So today is Saturday 07 July 2007 (in a few minutes it will be 08 July
2007), kadischi's bug review was marked and closed as NOTABUG,
while the remaining 4 open bugs under kadischi's name :
# A first experience ( #222568 )
# Kadischi does not build on VMware hosted OS ( #216151 )
# Kadischi may raise an exception when attempting to copy device
files. ( #211692 )
# Processed: Kadischi build fails if dietlibc is installed ( #167220 )
were closed as WONTFIX.
Therefore, I'm announcing the official EOF of Kadischi. It is sad, but
it is _not_ the end of creation of custom spins at the Fedora Project
since Jeroen van Meeuwen and his friends are actively maintaining
revisor. If you were a kadischi user in the past, you will probably
see revisor as a better alternative.
# I'll like to thank everyone who participated in the kadischi
project: whether by contributing codes
# or by testing, translations, documentation,...
We will still be looking forward to see your contributions at the new
The Fedora Livecd Mailing list is still active and you can still
asked your livecd related questions there. However I don't know what
will be the state of the #fedora-livecd irc channel on freenode. The
average number of people who joined this channel daily is 5 and
there's pretty much no discussions. Well, #fedora-devel is always
I would like to remind everyone to vote in the Fedora Board elections,
which are currently ongoing. If you are getting this message multiple
times, I'm sorry. It's being sent to various lists.
The Fedora Board's membership changes on a rotating basis. This
election is for 3 of the 9 Fedora Board seats. The Fedora Board is the
Fedora Project's "executive committee" and is ultimately accountable for
everything that happens within Fedora, and delegates responsibillity to
various sub-projects accordingly.
Information about the candidates and voting is available here:
Voting will end at 11:59 PM UTC on Sunday July 8th. Anyone who has
signed the Fedora CLA is eligible to vote.

As of Monday, July 2nd 2007, Fedora Core 5 has gone into retirement. No
further updates will be issued for FC5 or FE5 as we refocus our
developer attention to development of F8 and maintenance of our most
recent stable Fedora 7.
The Fedora Project now runs on a N+2 + 1 month support schedule. This
means the supported lifetime of FC5 was scheduled to end one month after
the release of F7. FC5 was supported from March 20th 2006 through July
2nd 2007, or a good ~15.5 months.
By the current Fedora 8 development schedule, the supported lifetime of
FC6 is to continue to a minimum of early December 2007.
