It's meeting day! I'll be coming to you LIVE! from LinuxCon. At least as
Live as IRC can be. :D
Meeting Details: Friday, 2011/06/03 @1900 UTC (In NA - East coast, 3pm; West coast, 12pm.)
Meeting channel: #fedora-meeting, irc.freenode.net
See you there!
We are pleased to announce that BoxGrinder Build 0.9.4 has been released!
It is presently in Fedora's updates-testing repositories.
A full review of the changes is in the release blog post:
This update includes many bug-fixes, in addition to stability and
performance improvements. In particular the enhancements to AWS related
functionality should eliminate issues with troublesome edge cases.
Of particular interest to some is that BoxGrinder Build will now work on
EC2 Micro instances 'out of the box'.
I dont usually like to cross post to multiple DLs but since These are Ruby
specific the Ruby SIG folks want to make sure the packages are following their
In order to get the pre-prerequisites needed for OpenNebula support in Fedora
Cloud, I would like some help in package reviews if you can spare some cycles.
Could the Ruby SIG and or Cloud SIG please review:
(Review Request: rubygem-stringex - Extensions to Rubys String class)
(Review Request: rubygem-idn - Ruby Bindings for the GNU LibIDN library)
(Review Request: rubygem-extlib - Support library for DataMapper and Merb)
(Review Request: rubygem-addressable - Improved URI/URL handling)
3rd party packaging, they need a sponsor:
(Review Request: rubygem-xmlparser-0.6.81-1 - Ruby bindings to the Expat XML
Once these are all approved, I will begin submitting rubygems for:
Rubygem Datamapper and its sub-rubygems (rubygem-dm-*)
Rubygem Dataobjects and its sub-rubygems (rubygem-do-*)
Then finally OpenNebula 3.0 itself.
Thanks for your help,
I need a bot to send these out for me. Sigh. Sorry for the late notice.
I'll buy you a cookie if you make me a cron job somewhere. :)
We'll be in the usual spot, #fedora-meeting.
And I just realized I failed to send out last week's minutes, probably
has something to do with me being at the doctor during the meeting. I'll
catch up with that while in this meeting. :)
We're very proud to present a brand new milestone release of
Aeolus, the multi-cloud deployment solution, sponsored by Red
This is version 0.3.0, bringing with it an amazing new UI,
designed from the ground up using best practise UX principles.
As well as the new interface, this release brings initial
support for both VMware vSphere 4.1, and tentative support
for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV).
Installation of Aeolus is very straight forward, using the
instructions on the website:
Packages are available for Fedora 14 x86_64, and RHEL 6.1 x86_64.
All testing and bug reports are greatly appreciated. They will
directly contribute to improving the quality of future releases.
NOTE - Although Aeolus is still some way from production quality,
it is suitable for testing. Please don't use it with live data yet.
For full details, including the list of BZ's fixed, please check

Regards and best wishes,
Aeolus Community Manager
Doh, I fail... I completely forgot to send this to the list here:
This is a little later than originally planned, but the Fedora 15
(yes, Fedora 15 – not a typo) EC2 test day will be on this Thursday
Fedora 15 AMIs are available for testing and are listed on the test
day wiki page . The tests are designed to ensure basic functionality
for the AMIs (MTA, httpd, yum etc.).
Since these tests require an Amazon AWS account, we are offering some
compensation (up to US$5) for the first 10 people to go through the EC2
test cases. This will be done on a first come, first served basis -
make sure that you contact rbergeron to verify that you are one of the
10 people or you may not get the credit.
PS – If you have the means to pay for the EC2 time or a free account,
please use that. We’re just trying to make sure that everyone who wants
to participate can.
