Now that dnf system-upgrade is the preferred way to upgrade, I wanted to
share how to use LVM to do so with a better fallback (in case something
goes south) than "restore from backup".
I wrote a draft. I don't quite like it yet - there are too many steps.
The "copy snapshot of rootfs to new lv" could be automated (but isn't
yet). It's probably not good form to attach or include it, but here is
a link: https://gathman.org/papers/upgrade.txt
I do Marketing & PR at The Document Foundation, the non-profit entity
behind LibreOffice. And before this, I spent almost 20 years writing for
Linux magazines, such as Linux Format and Linux Voice:
I'm a huge supporter of FOSS, Linux and digital rights, and I'm lucky
that my day job involves helping to spread the word about LibreOffice
and grow our community :-)
I'd like to write an article for Fedora Magazine about how Fedora users
can get involved with LibreOffice, in a few areas -- development,
design, marketing and so forth.
What do you think? Thanks!

I'd like to share my experience of making simple animations in Blender and
exporting a video out of it. I'm not a 3D designer, so please don't expect
making beautiful things. But I can definitely promise things that move —
even though they might be a little ugly.
For example, I've made this video in Blender: https://youtu.be/5VQljp1p_ok
I would cover:
* basics of the Blender UI
* making simple shapes in Blender
* keyframes — the basic concept of animation in Blender
* making an actual animated scene
* exporting a video
I'm not sure if this would be one article or a series, I would need to
start writing and see what happens. So this could be one article, or a
How do you like my idea?
PS: If someone on the other hand knows how to make beautiful 3D models in
Blender, we could do a series together maybe? But that would be a stretch
goal for me.
Congratulations, Magaziners... May 2018 was our best month EVER on the
Magazine. Of course it was a release month with Fedora 28 releasing
on May 1, 2018, and several related articles following that news.
Fedora 26 --> Jul 2017 --> 366,601 pageviews
Fedora 27 --> Nov 2017 --> 389,554 pageviews
Fedora 28 --> May 2018 --> 400,598 pageviews
It's true this is only a modest increase, and there's a bit of
unwanted "flattening out" to the curve. However, my semi-educated
guess is this is due to a few problems:
* The release article timing was botched due to unwanted links in the
announcement text, which forced us to publish other articles waiting
in the wings. In the future we should make sure to eliminate errant
links like that, so we can space out views over time.
* Quite a few articles in May, including the release related articles,
did not use the special "<!-- more -->" tag that incents RSS readers
to come to the site to view the whole article. We need to use this
tag in *every* article.
With these fixes, my bet is we would have seen closer to 415K-425K
pageviews, showing an accelerating release-to-release curve. However,
400,000 views in a month is nothing to sneeze at! Let's keep striving.
