Hi, my name is Alejo Cerrato, and I'm Marketing Director of a medium
size company in SoFla.
I'm very interested in improve my skills on Linux and colaborate with
the Fedora Project.
So far I've found that if you are not very skilled in Linux it is hard
to follow all the steps as they are indicated to succesfully become a
contributor. And I guess that there may be people willing to
colaborate, but without the minimum Linux skills to do so.
For some reason (and I'm not trying to get any help here in this list)
I can't validate my CLA. I wonder how many people got discouraged in
becoming a contributor because of the complexity of the process, and
the intrinsec bureaucracy.
I understand at the same time that it has to be done in a secure environment.
I'm going to keep on trying and get my CLA validated asap.
But at the same time I'll like to help make this process easier for
the contributors-to-be, people that may lack Linux knowledge but have
other skills that could help.
I have been using it regularly for sometime now. Very powerful and
"Colin Walters of Red Hat chaired a FOSSCamp session about Hotwire, a
unique and innovative graphical shell environment designed to improve
the command-line user experience. I've been testing Hotwire releases for
some time now, so the opportunity to see Walters present his invention
in person seemed too good to pass up."
We had a list a long time ago on companies that sell linux
computers/laptops on the wiki. I have just found this website and it
looks quite cheap compared to where I live.
Can we update the list on the wiki?
The release of Fedora 8 (codenamed Werewolf) is due out for release in
less than two weeks and comes with a host of new features. Fedora 8 will
offer a Codec Buddy for installing audio/video codecs, an open-source
Java stack now based upon IcedTea, improved laptop support, the Pulse
Audio sound server, remove virtualization support, and much more.
I am not sure how concrete these details are. Interesting however.
" There's less than two weeks now until the release of Fedora 8, which
has been codenamed Werewolf. However, it's not too early to start
thinking about Fedora 9. One of the items that has already been brought
up for this next release cycle is a new display utility. While there is
the rather basic system-config-display utility from Red Hat, Fedora is
currently lacking a graphical tool to change or enable display devices
(such as LCDs or TVs) in real-time. "
Just saw this:
I have to say, I think it would be really funny if someone made a Fedora one!
May be a bit of advertising, if someone happens to look at the bottom of you
