This is about the PressArchieve page
Today I was adding some articles to it and
suddenly i found that it was not attracting me at all,
the main reason being it too long and filled with so many links.
I think this would be better if we
>> keep only a main table consisting of a primary indexes here. (Say
FC6,FC7,General,Indexes and so on.)
>>Link those indexes to seperate pages,
>> We can create a page for each elements, That is one page for FC6
,another for FC7 , another for interviews etc etc.
This will have two advantages.
>> This page will be more neat.
>> Findind out links on a particular topic will be easy.
What do you think about it?
If you agree, I can do that myself.
Oh, Merry Christmas and Happy new year to you all.
"The Fedora Summit drew 10 top Red Hat and Fedora team members to the
table including Jesse Keating, Fedora's release engineer;Fedora
developer Jeremy Katz; engineer and original Fedora Project founder
Warren Togami; Greg DeKoenigsberg, community development manager for Red
Hat; and Fedora Project Leader Max Spevack. In addition to a conference
call established to accommodate team members unable to make the trip to
Massachusetts, the meeting was also transcribed live in an IRC channel
that drew more than 100 members of the Fedora community."
Also some draft plans for F7 at http://lwn.net/Articles/214925/rss
How comes that in these last days I've never heard a word about
Fedora Legacy slow dying ?
I think it's a great loss, that it will affect a not so little
portion of audience and that will need some changing in the release
cycle of ours future releases of Fedora.
Am i the only one seeing this ?

I'm Herman from Holland and I'm new here.
(I joined because I like Fedora Core a lot, and I think it could make a
lot more people feel better at their computers.)
Besides the Linux Magazine (wrapped in secret-hiding plastic) I also saw
an €8,95 "Linus Starter" magazine in Dutch, with an FC6 DVD. This is
widely available in small bookshops/news paper stands (such as in train
stations and somewhat larger towns). The last time I saw this it was a
Linspire issue, over a year ago.
Not as slick as Lin.Mag., but it looks very informative, very beginner
proof and yet very much to the point. A white Fedora on the cover.
Interestingly, they didn't take Ubuntu although it is all the hype now,
at least in Europe Ubuntu is more widely used than FC.
I haven't bought it yet for temporary lack of cash but if anybody here
wants me to buy it so I can tell you of its contents, please tell me.
To spread Fedora and all its stuffs, I'm curently writind a few lines
about liveCD, for french community documentation.
I was only writing about the FedoraUnity project which is LiveSpin. But
the FWN 70 presents an "official LiveCD" with lots of new fun features.
Before updating my note, I would like to know if this new LiveCD is
still in development or fully usable?
What will happend to LiveSpin? Do I still promote it?
Thanks for your advices,

"Directory services play a vital part in today's networks by helping
administrators manage network users and resources. Until recently, the
only choice for deploying a secure and easy-to-use open source directory
server was OpenLDAP. While it gets the job done, it lacks the polish of
commercial alternatives. Now Fedora Directory Server (FDS), Red Hat's
open source LDAP server, makes setting up an enterprise directory server
on Linux simple."
it seems that Thorsten cann't send directly :-(
