I'm Ricardo Ichizo from Brazil.
Currently, I'm involved with Fedora Ambassador project, but I'd like to
contribute and help this project too.
I'm a LPI 2 certificate and I work as System Analyst (C and Python/Django).
I have three year of
experience with PostgreSQL and Oracle Databases (DBA). And I also work as

Hello. My name is Jeff Williams and have been looking for a Fedora group to
join to contribute in at least a small way.
I have been a Unix and Linux sysadmin for at least 13 years (in addition to
other sysadmin experience on other platforms). I am also a systems
programmer (mostly C but lots of ksh/bash/awk) and all-around computer
I don't have a ton of time to contribute to the efforts of this group right
now but would like to at least see how the group operates and what the
Looking forward to it.
Just a quick introduction, to say my names Matt, and after using Linux for
several years I thought I'd try and make a contribution of some sort.
Not really sure what I can do to help but thought i would start by just
watching what goes on.
I have a few skills that may/may not be of help. I'm quite good with
PHP/AJAX/XML I can use mysql, but have never done anything overly
complicated with it. I have done some Bash/Perl scripting and I'm not afraid
to do more! I would like to learn more about Python.
I'm a certified RHCE and i'm pretty good with RHN-Satellite although that
probably is not so useful :) other than that... i'm pretty good with Cisco
ASA's and switches and general networky things.
Hope I can be of help,
I am talking about this one https://fedorahosted.org/freemedia/
I have installed the eggs of customfield plugin and webadmin plugin.
But they are not showing up.
May be I need to enable them trac.ini.
I don't find it in puppet and neither can I see it through TracAdmin panel.
Just a reminder to everyone, FUDCon is on the way soon. Many of us
(myself included) will be traveling and not as available as usual.
Please be extra careful about any changes you make.
For example, don't make a change to our global.pp file and then get on an
Is this list the right place to ask koji releated questions?
I am playing with koji by setting up a local build system.
I have am able to do some examples like build the bash package.
I am now attempting to setup a large collection of packages and wondering about package dependencies and ordering.
How do you prepare a koji-builder system or is that taken care of? For example, if package X requires program foo to build, do I need to be aware of this and make sure foo is on koji-builder system.
For your consideration.

Subject: Account Security Question
Date: Wed, 7 Jan 2009 14:22:20 -0500
Upon creating my account on the fedoraproject site, I was asked to
submit a public key and download a client certificate. First, what is
the public key used for? I sent a 1024 rsa pubkey made with ssh-keygen.
Does it have to be rsa or can I change that to a 2048 dsa key? I
commonly use my windows side to access the internet and my linux side
more as a server than a terminal side, though it has client side
available. Should the dsa public key be kept on the browser side, or
isolated to the linux side? The Private Key is kept offline on
In regards to the certificate, it requests I add this to a particular
location in the system. Is the certificate used to authenticate my
sessions with fedoraproject or just for the purposes of linux
developing? If it is used for authentication, can this be used on a
windows based system, or should I login from my linux side? I'm not a
developer as of yet, my programming skills are hardly up to par yet.
Regardless of the use, events of yesterday lead me to ask, is this a MD5
hash or SHA1 or SHA2 hash? I ask this because of the collision exploit
to md5 certificates. Please let me know, and if it is a MD5 hash, can I
request a SHA clientside certificate?
Being new to Linux, I am thrilled to to have membership in
fedoraproject, as I have found linux nearly superior to windows in many
