Here is one late change to the Fedora Packaging Guidelines:
The systemd scriptlet guidelines have been updated for Fedora 18. In
Fedora 18, the systemd package now provides helper macros to simplify
%post, %preun, and %postun invocations in packages with systemd unit
files. Additionally, these macros enable support for systemd "profiles",
a Fedora 18 Feature.
This guideline change was approved by the Fedora Packaging
Committee (FPC), but was delayed until recently, pending Feature
approval of the systemd "profiles" feature.
Many thanks to Lennart Poettering, and all of the members of
the FPC, for assisting in drafting, refining, and passing these guidelines.
As a reminder: The Fedora Packaging Guidelines are living documents! If
you find something missing, incorrect, or in need of revision, you can
suggest a draft change. The procedure for this is documented here:
Greetings! (...or perhaps I should say.... bonjour!)
I'd like to share a few reminders and announcements regarding the
upcoming FUDCon in Paris, France, on October 13-15, 2012.
If you are planning to attend FUDCon and need a travel subsidy to do so,
the ticketing system is now open for those requests. Requests will be
accepted through August 15, 2012. Please note that funding requests
without a ticket will not be considered. Preference will be given to
attendees from the EMEA region who are actively contributing to Fedora,
and have detailed their participation plans for FUDCon in their request.
To place a subsidy request, please follow these steps:
1: Pre-register at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FUDCon:Paris_2012#Pre-registration - and
put an X in the $$$ column
2: Read about the funding request process and place a funding request
ticket in the FUDCon-planning ticket tracker here:
Additionally, a few notes regarding the hotel in Paris:
There are other events in Paris during this time period; most notably,
our first day of FUDCon will be taking place at the Open World Forum
conference, on the day in which the public is encouraged to participate
in and learn about open source projects. OWF had nearly 2000 attendees
last year. Accordingly, rooms might be in short supply as we approach
FUDCon; please, book your hotel as soon as possible, not only for
affordability purposes, but also so that you have a bed to sleep in. :)
We currently have a rate of EUR81 per night at the ibis Paris La Vilette
Cite des Sciencesfor the nights of the 12th, 13th, and 14th of October.
However, this rate will expire at the end of August, and any remaining
rooms in our block will expire.
For instructions on booking your hotel, please read the Lodging/Hotel
section of the FUDCon: Paris wiki:
