This is the Fedora 11 Preview release, we're just a short time from
releasing the full shebang. Therefore we need the most testing we can
possibly get on this one. On the torrent sites you'll find live images for
http://torrent.fedoraproject.org and http://spins.fedoraproject.org
Everyone has been focused on fixing and closing their remaining bugs since
the Fedora 11 Beta Release. Please use Bugzilla
( http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_file_a_bug_report ) to report any
problems you find (after making sure that somebody else hasn't already
reported the issues). The Preview release notes which can be found at
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f11preview/ will help you
with any other details.
Thanks and happy testing!
The Board is holding its monthly public meeting on Tuesday, 5 May
2009, at 1800 UTC on IRC Freenode. The Board has settled on a
schedule that puts these public IRC meetings on the first Tuesday of
each month. Therefore, the next following public meeting will be on 5
May 2009. For these meetings, the public is invited to do the
* Join #fedora-board-meeting to see the Board's conversation.
* Join #fedora-board-questions to discuss topics and post
questions. This channel is read/write for everyone.
The moderator will voice people from the queue, one at a time, in the
#fedora-board-meeting channel. We'll limit time per voice as needed
to give everyone in the queue a chance to be heard.
The Board may reserve some time at the top of the hour to cover any
agenda items as appropriate. We look forward to seeing you at the

The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of new ISO Re-Spins of Fedora 10.
These Re-Spin ISOs are based on the officially released Fedora 10 installation media and include all updates released as of April 14th, 2009 (saving about 650MB in updates on a default install).
The ISO images are available for i386, x86_64, PPC architectures via Jigdo and or Torrent starting Tuesday April 21st, 2009.
Go to http://spins.fedoraunity.org/spins to get the bits!
Removed Groups in x86_64 and PPC
With this spin, we have had to remove a few package groups (and default packages for other groups) to ensure the distribution fits onto a single DVD.
This is the case for x86_64 and ppc. See http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/fedora-spins/2009-April/000561.html for an exact list.
PPC isos are being released marked **UNTESTED**, Please Test and give us feedback,
We would like to give a special thanks to the following for testing this Re-Spin:
- zcat Jason Farrell
- vwbusguy- Scott Williams
- Southern_Gentleman Ben Williams
- kanarip Jeroen van Meeuwen
- fenrus2 Dennis Johnson
- Harley-D Dana Hoffman Jr
- sgodsell Sean Godsell
- cyberpear James Cassell
A full test matrix can be found at http://spins.fedoraunity.org/Members/Southern_Gentleman/Fedora-10-2009041...
Fedora Unity has taken up the Re-Spin task to provide the community with the chance to install Fedora with recent updates already included.
This is a community project, for and by the community. You can contribute to the community by joining our test process.
Go to http://spins.fedoraunity.org/spins to get the bits!
If you are interested in helping with the testing or mirroring efforts, please contact the Fedora Unity team.
Contact information is available at http://fedoraunity.org/ or the #fedora-unity channel on the Freenode IRC Network (irc.freenode.net).

We're about 2 months away from FUDCon Berlin and LinuxTag, and it's time
to give the community a few reminders and details.
LinuxTag --> June 24 - 27
FUDCon Berlin --> June 26 - 28
Both events are being held in the same location, and FUDCon is OPEN TO
EVERYONE, regardless of whether or not you are a Fedora user or
== ATTENDING FUDCON ==
Please pre-register for the event. This is the only way to guarantee
free entry (because a LinuxTag ticket is required, and we will have
enough for all pre-registered) as well as a FUDCon tshirt.
Please register for the hotel, if you need it.
Travel from Tegel airport to the hotel is trivial, as is travel from the
hotel to Messe Berlin, where FUDCon and LinuxTag is being held.
== THE FUDCON SCHEDULE ==
Tuesday, June 23 - Thursday, June 25
Fedora will be at LinuxTag, which is at the same location as FUDCon.
For more information, see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LinuxTag2009
Most FUDCon attendees will want to arrive on Thursday at the latest,
since FUDCon starts on Friday morning.
Friday 26 June
* Normal day of LinuxTag.
* Day 1 of FUDCon Berlin 2009, starting precisely at 10:00 AM.
* Fedora Social Event at En Passant in Sevignyplatz
Saturday 27 June
* Final day of LinuxTag.
* Day 2 of FUDCon Berlin 2009, starting precisely at 10:00 AM.
Sunday 28 June
* Day 3 of FUDCon Berlin 2009, starting precisely at 10:00 AM.
The detailed schedule for each day of FUDCon is here:
We also need people to continue to sign up for BarCamp and hackfest
Due to some staging issues, I've had to re-issue a few of the isos for
Fedora 11 Beta.
The F11-Beta-x86_64-Live-KDE.iso has been re-issued both in torrent and
on the mirrors. This was accidentally composed with 32bit packages
instead of 64bit packages.
The Source isos have been re-issued on torrent only. An older set were
first issued there. The CHECKSUM on the mirrors was wrong as well for
these isos and has been updated.
No other changes are being made at this time.
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
