I'm glad to see that people are finally picking up on this.
I'm CCing this to infrastructure, hopefully they can create a list.
The Board would like to set up a "town hall" style meeting for our first
meeting in March, if possible. (The timeline is not strict, but I'd
like to be able to start telling the community our actual timeline very
soon.) We'd like to support call-ins so people can hear the Board's
meeting publicly. I have no idea how many people would actually show up
to listen, but let's assume it's in the 50-100 range, and maybe we're
Can we support this with our current Asterisk setup in Fedora?

I saw the other day ivazquez's blog post and a "make push"
addition by ricky concerning git handling of the fedora-web repo. They
both use rebase before pushing.
Our scenario -correct me if I'm wrong- is that we want to mark as live
a specific commit in the master development history.
git-rebase is to "forward-port *local* commits to the updated upstream
head" (git help rebase). Since there are not any local commits to be
rebased in our tree it might make more sense to use git merge instead.
A little example usecase, we want to do some fedora-web development:
git co master
<edit files, coding, etc>
git commit -m 'foo'
<edit files, coding, etc>
git commit -m 'bar'
'bar' commit adds some experimental stuff, we dont want it to be in
our web servers. On the other hand 'foo' is ready to go live. We just
have to merge it into our live branch:
$git co live (go to live branch)
$git merge master~1 (merge master~1 into current branch)
At this point the history looks like this:
$git push (push both master and live to the central repo)
$git co master (return to master to continue developing)
ps: "merge" word can be confusing. In our scenario git merge doesn't
produce a merge commit since "live" shares the same devel line with
master (what we do is a fast-forward merge).
it's been some time now that i am on the list and i would like to step
in and take on some tasks
but i'm not in any fig so far
how do i proceed from here?

I'm a french sys admin willing to help managing the fedoraproject
infrastructure. So far i have not yet an account on FAS but it's on my
TODO list :)
I've worked for a long time under different flavors of *nix but but CV
in currently in french only. I'm going to translate it, so people on
this list wil be able to know exactly my skills, it's also on my TODO

Welp, the last 2 thursdays were busy enough that I forgot to start both
meetings. In fairness I don't think anyone really missed it as no one
pinged me to see if we were starting :)
So I'll ask, is there another time that works for everyone? We can
certainly re-schedule the meeting times. Anyone not like the current time
I think one thing that gets most of us is that during day light savings,
it changes. It seems most people would prefer it to be about an hour
later right now.
we're setting up the new torrent tracker and we're debating which
tracker software to use.
bittorrent: 5.2.0 - released in nov 2007 - it's the last open source
version b/c apparently the authors got greedy and stupid.
It's not painfully out of date, though and it would be
relatively to setup and shift over to it.
ctorrent: theoretically being maintained and theoretically capable of
being a tracker. It doesn't seem to have any nice
initscripts. And the configuration for additional trackers
looks more convulted than might otherwise be desired. Welcome
to suggestions on initscripts, etc
rtorrent: not obvious this is a tracker at all. It looks more like an
ncurses-based client. Subpar for our usage.
In case anyone is unclear what our usage is. We use the torrent
tracker/seed as a simple server. We drop files in a directory and they
are available on the tracker. It logs what went where and lets us get
data out of it about how many things have been downloaded and from
Open to suggestions about better tracker software to use. Requirements:
1. must be free software
2. must log/record stats
3. must act sensibly
