When I try to test TG2 apps on publictest machines, they shout about
python 2.4 and what not.
Is there a spare machine which runs python 2.6? If yes, I could use it.
my name is pablo martinez, I've been using fedora at home since version 3
I'm C/C++ and Java programmer and I did a little of python some years ago (I
still use it for small things). I've also worked with Oracle and Pro*C
I want to collaborate as much as I can
I just wanted to introduce myself. I am a Programmer Analyst who works for a
large fortune 500 company. I have been using Fedora for over 3 years and
would love to give back in any way that I can. I absolutely love what Fedora
and open source does and believe in both 100%. I am skilled in Java, J2EE,
C, C++, Python, HTML, CSS and a bunch of other technologies. I am an avid
programming language enthusiast and am working toward getting my Masters in
Computer Science. I would love to contribute to the website project in any
way that I can. I deal with website technology on a daily basis and feel
that I would be able to provide a lot of help to the fedora website team. No
task is to small. If you guys just need someone to enter text or change a
CSS style I am willing to do it. Thank you for your time and I look forward
to talking with all of you!
My name is Andreas Osowski, I've been a Packager for the past ~6 months
and joining Infrastructure has been on my todo-list for quite some time.
After all, there is far more to Fedora than just Packaging :)
I started using GNU/Linux on a regular base about 4 years ago, going from
Debian to Fedora (and eventually from there on to Gentoo and back :) )
I've been a sysadmin at my school for the past 3 years where we are using
a Linux distribution for schools (called Musterlösung) using PSQL,
LDAP, Moodle and Linbo (an OSS solution for self-healing workstations).
During the past few years, I have been running and administering various
dedicated (and home) servers mostly based upon Gentoo Hardened, Debian or
I'm on good terms with RoR and Python and have used TurboGears from time to time in the
past, mainly for recreational projects. I've been using Java and C++
for the past 4 years, too, but I am more interested in other areas right now.
So yeah, I guess that I'm most interested in sysadmin-web for now, but I'm
still unsure here; it might be a good start.
By joining the sysadmin group I hope to be able to refine my skills in
sysadmin matters and eventually become better in web development, too :)
I just moved several hosts to using our new iptables module from the old
configs template. It shouldn't have any impact on the firewalls as the
rules haven't changed. But if people see anything... odd going on. Let
Nothing's ever easy, is it?
So I got pdns up and going this afternoon with it's geo back end. It's
working as expected and everything is good. The problem is pdns's dnssec
implementation is... not particularly mature or really even usable AFAIK
Anyone out there doing both geo location and dnssec with their name
My name is René Jr Purcell and I'd like to join the Fedora community and I
think the Infrastructure group is a good place to start!
I started using Linux with Slackware 4.0, I remember all those night trying
to understand this "new way of thinking and using computer" I had a lot of
fun and I really started to understand and have fun after few weeks of work
trying LFS (Linux From Scratch).
I've been working as a Linux administrator for ther past 6 years, working
with Suse linux enterprise server, RHEL and CentOS. During the past two
years I got my CLP and RHCE certification which push me to try and use
RedHat product. For now I'm trying to learn the administration of Oracle on
Linux and I'm working hard to become a master of RHEV. I'm using Fedora
daily, since Core 3 and I appreciate the work done by the community and I
think it's the time for me to give back!
Just like Ashley Biar ( who posted yesterday ) I'm not sure where I can
start helping, I would like to learn first how everyone work together on the
project, where are the biggest needs and I'll see later.. For now my main
interest are the system administration and I'm trying to find if my
knowledge of RPM could lead me to maintain/package rpms.
Looking forward to see/chat with you on IRC.

The configuration of download-i2 seems to be not the same as from the other
non I2 download servers:
gives me a long list of files which should not be visible, whereas running rsync
against the non I2 download server gives me
rsync: link_stat "i386/debug/.~tmp~/." (in fedora-linux-development) failed: Permission denied (13)
So the directory (which probably should not be there at all) is on both
servers but the I2 server lets me also download it.
This is just a notice that PackageDB development is shifting to the 0.5.x
branch and what that means if you have a checkout for hacking.
First, the big news is that 0.5.x has been branched. We'll be working on
stabilizing this with the goal of having a working version before Fedora
13 alpha (Currently scheduled for 2010-02-09). We'll have test releases
on https://admin.stg.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/ before that time.
0.4.x is in maintainance mode. There probably won't be another release off
of this branch although I will be committing any hotfixes that we generate
for Fedora Infrastructure to it.
If you want to work with 0.5.x the command to check it out is::
bzr branch bzr+ssh://bzr.fedorahosted.org/bzr/packagedb/0.5.x
If you presently have an 0.4.x branch that you'd like to switch over to the
0.5.x branch, you'll need to do::
bzr merge bzr+ssh://bzr.fedorahosted.org/bzr/packagedb/0.5.x
# Take care of any conflicts
bzr pull --remember bzr+ssh://bzr.fedorahosted.org/bzr/packagedb/0.5.x
# Next time you push, use --remember as well to switch the branch you push
# to by default
# bzr push --remember bzr+ssh://bzr.fedorahosted.org/bzr/packagedb/0.5.x
If you have changes that are going to change the API, are big changes, or
destabilize things, please let me know and we can decide whether there's
time to push them to 0.5.x or if they should go to fedora-packagedb-devel.
We will be pushing a few more planned features to the 0.5.x branch but in
general, we have a schedule to hit so we need to concentrate on getting the
required features stable by the deadline.
There are several big new features in the 0.5.x version and a reorganization
of quite a bit of the code so I'll be spending quite a lot of my time
working on this. If you need me for something else, I'll be on IRC but
this is just a warning that I may not be able to help with random things
as much as usual.
