"We caught up with Max at FUDCon. He told us how much he has enjoyed
being the Fedora project leader for the past two years, and why this is
a good time to hand the reins to someone else. Max will still be working
for Red Hat, and even though he will no longer be head Fedora honcho,
he'll still be involved with the project. But that's enough from us. Let
Max tell it in his own words."
Why not to stay focused , no how get the people with the advantages of
Fedora, than discuss
if a codename or another is properly or not?. Ridiculous is discuss this
things. Reaction of
people of the "codename", What People?.....people who wants to use another
option, are focused
on the option, not in the codename, this is a geek business, not "human"
We have more work to, strategy plans to spread Fedora, than lost our time to
read this unnecesary discussion.
Besides, Codenames are traditional, and a thread about the usefulness of a
codename is really ridiculous...
Chris Negus, who authored on book on Linux live cd's that covered
Kadischi now has a very comprehensive article on Fedora livecd-creator.
Check it out.
"The Fedora project has added a powerful tool to its Linux distribution
to build your own live CD. With a single livecd-creator command and a
kickstart file listing the software you want, you can create a desktop,
gaming, or Web server to run live on most PCs. This article gives
details of how to do that."
Here in Brazil (and I bet that in all Latin countries) the choice of
this codenames have caused a negative reaction even in the more enthusiastic users.

There was a open call in fedora-devel list and all of the names were
suggested from people in the community and need to pass through legal
review which has already been done. The names won't be changed now.

I couldn't find any information online about this but one of the local
Linux users group members notified that Linux For You magazine current
issue bundles Fedora Electronics Lab Live CD. This print magazine claims
to be the only Asian print magazine dedicated to Linux and has tens of
thousands of copies circulation rate. Since they also run a sister
magazine called Electronics For You, they have a good interest in
electronics which probably explains the choice. I thought it was pretty
interesting info to pass on. I will post an update once I get to see a
Unfortunately I will not be able to lead the Store SIG meeting this
week. I lost a crown tonight and the first available dental
appointment is going to interfere with the normally scheduled meeting
time. I will update the meeting page to reflect the change and we'll
meet again next week.
I do agree with a lot of others about the names regarding the new fedora
release. How about we have an option wherein we add names we like and
others can vote on the names or add their choice. The final one probably
could be the one with the most number of votes.
Hi there one and all, I am emailing the mailing list to introduce
My name is Brendon Toogood, I come from new zealand, my main aim is to
get Linux/open source more out to the general public and in to the
business sector. I am running FC8 but in the past i have used FC2,3,4
for a few years after I used a couple of other distributions to see what
they were like and compare them. (there were debian based and that is as
far as I will go on the list).
I would like to do my part in the marketing of the Fedora project so
that is why I am here in this mailing list to see in any way in which I
can help, and do my part.
