I am new to the fedora infrastructure group. I am going throug few of the links in the site to get a feel of the work. I have submitted my .ssh_rsa_key.pub from the site. I think I will get some intimation on this. Please someone can let me know further proceedings from here onwards.

I always suck at these things, but here goes.
I have been using Fedora for the past year and am loving it. I am
looking to gain more experience and skills. Also I am wanting to
contribute however I can to the fedora project.
I can also contribute 20gb of space and around 900GB to 1000GB of
bandwidth per month.

I'm disabling bapp1 for a bit until I either build another one or until we
get xen13 back online. This won't have a major impact on the users except
that some sites won't have up to date data if they are updated (like
Atm xen13 doesn't pass a POST so I'll be on the phone with IBM shortly.
I am Abhishek Indoria, 14 from India. I am interested in contributing
to Fedora project as being a part of Fedora Infrastructure group.
I am 14, so please don't expect much, but here's my brief information:

me get started? It will be appreciated.

My name is Mike Maravillo and I'd like to join the Fedora community,
particularly the Infrastructure group. I started using Linux way back
with Slackware 3.0 as a system administrator for a local ISP in the
Philippines. Since then, I've been connected with companies doing
consulting, training, and technical support using Linux and Open
Source. I've also done software development projects using C, PHP,
Perl, and Python/PyGTK.
Joining the Infrastructure group would be a good chance for me to
contribute and bring back to the community, and hopefully would quench
that thirst to learn more of what's current since I've been mostly
involved with programming lately. :)
Just a note about our weekly meeting this week. I know I won't be there
and it seems likely several people won't be around as it's holiday in the
US. Having said that, I certainly wouldn't want to stop anyone from
having a meeting, there's always lots to discuss so if people show up and
have a meeting, just make sure you send the meeting notes to the list. If
no one shows up, happy holidays :)
In the interest of maintaining good will with our mirrors and
appreciation for the great service they provide to Fedora... I'm looking
for some guidance and preferences from the Infrastructure team on how to
During the schedule planning for Fedora 13, Jesse suggested looking at
the other releases to see where our final date was landing. Jesse dug
up the dates and I add my own editorial comments (see below)
Here are the questions as it relates to the mirrors that carry Fedora
and other distros:
1) What is the minimum distance in days that we have to put between our
release and other distros?
2) Is it the release date that matters most or the date the staging starts?
3) On a scale of 1 to 5 (1 = doesn't matter, 3 = moderate impact, 5 =
critical, we'd be out of our minds not to) how important is it that we
bend our schedule to not land as close as we might be potentially
landing with the dates below (assuming we do not slip)?
I'm really looking for a scale to get a sense of the severity and not
subjective responses like "it will be bad" or "people will hate us." I
want to know "how much."
4) Our current options as I understand them are:
a) Overlap closely (see below)
b) Add two weeks to Fedora 13
Is there an "option C" that we could implement or go with so as not
to have to add two weeks to our scheduled GA date if the consensus score
from #3 is high?
Debian 2010-March (Freeze, not an actual release date)
Fedora 13 2010-04-27 (since Fedora 8 every release has been
late >= 2 weeks)
Ubuntu 10.4 2010-04-29 (I'm told they have never slipped)
OpenSUSE 2010-05-05 (no idea on their "on time arrival
Some of you might be aware that the instructions for verifying our
*-CHECKSUM files on Windows have been broken since we moved to SHA256.
Previously, we linked users to a sha1sum.exe built by the GnuPG
project. With SHA256, we don't have that ability.
Fortunately, the good folks working on MingW have made it possible for
us to build a sha256sum.exe from the coreutils sources. We can do
this in koji even. (A huge thanks to Richard Jones for his help and
Much of this is discussed at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/527060.
I've created a simple mingw32-sha256sum package, built it in koji and
tested it on the lone Windows XP system I have readily available. Of
course, I just built this as a scratch build, so it will expire at
What I'm here for is to gather ideas for how to properly go about
building the mingw32-sha256sum and keeping it around so that when I
extract the sha256sum.exe and upload it to fedoraproject.org we will
have the koji built rpm to compare the binary against. Otherwise, the
whole process falls back to "Trust that Todd didn't trojan the
executable." And while I'd be flattered if folks had that much trust
in me, I think it would be unwise to encourage or expect. :)
(I really don't want to maintain the mingw32-sha256sum package for
Fedora, as it's just a quick and dirty hack to built a small subset of
of coreutils for Windows.)
