I have been mostly tuning out the noise on these lists related to the
Ubuntu/Wikimedia press event and I don't wish to stir them up again,
but I expect the participants here will find the following both
informative and as useful reference material for correcting FUD which
might circulate related to this in the future.
"Version 10 of Red Hat's Fedora Linux distribution, which is scheduled
for release at the end of November, is set to ship with a new security
audit and intrusion prevention tool.
Between this new tool, Fedora's support for full-volume encryption at
install time (a feature that Ubuntu also offers but OpenSUSE lacks) and
Fedora's well-implemented SELinux subsystem, Red Hat has delivered the
most well-rounded complement of security features available on any
current Linux distribution."
"The OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) developers announced today a new
release of their XO Software, a Fedora-based Linux distribution designed
for the XO laptop. The new version is based on the popular Sugar
graphical interface, Fedora 9 operating system, and includes some core
software customizations for wireless drivers, Open Firmware, power
management, and the NAND flash filesystem"

Forwarding this to the Marketing project for some discussion and
upgrade. The poster in question is at:
Note this poster isn't part of the official release artwork. But with
some better text put together by the Marketing group, it could be. Can
you come up with something catchy for this eye-popping art?

Having just republished FWN 147 on FM, I now intend to put up this
post containing some notes and request for feedback on how we're
approaching it. Trying to keep in line with some of my own suggestions
about what we should post outside of the core content, I'm pasting the
content here to give people a chance to comment before I post it.
Obviously we'll need a more long term solution, but thoughts and
feedback welcome :) I'll probably give it until lunchtime here,
(GMT+1) before I go ahead and hit publish.
Having just republished issue 147 of Fedora Weekly News here on Fedora
Magazine, I want to take the chance to provide some notes about how
we're approaching this, as well as to ask for some feedback.
Firstly, FWN has its own category here, 'Fedora Weekly News', and as
such has its own feed. This means that all those who've been waiting
for a FWN feed to subscribe to can now point their feed readers at:
Although this feed address will change if/when we move to Fedora's
infrastructure, I don't anticipate this happening for a while and I
will be sure to make it very clear when it does.
Secondly, and this is where I'd like feedback, FWN was not reformatted
at all from the wiki. While WordPress did a great job at converting
all of the existing formatting, I'd like to know if people would
prefer it in any other formats. This could include anything from
header styles, page breaks, inline links... the list goes on.
So, let us know what you think about how we're approaching the
republication of FWN by leaving a comment to this post.
My name is Ross Wardrup, and I'm from Denton, Texas, USA. I'm a student at
the University of Norht Texas and I'm going to school for computer science.
I'm also a produce stocker at Wal-Mart at the moment, which I'm hoping to
change soon. I hope to promote Fedora at my university and city and also to
help my marketing and people skills, and to help my future career. I'd like
to talk about installing Fedora on Apple Macbooks, because that is what I
use. I'd like to see greater compatablity with Apple products in Fedora, but
with Rawhide, that really doesn't seem to be a problem. I'd also like to try
to get into coding once I gain more skill, since that's what I'm being
educated for. I have no official qualifications in marketing or promoting,
but I have been promoting Linux in general for several years and have gotten
at least 10 people to switch over. I think I've got some good ideas on how
to promote Fedora at UNT, including getting a booth set up with laptops and
letting people "click around" Fedora.
Jonathan, I have plenty of space and bandwidth to host the wordpress site for you (all of us) long term.
Contact me off list to work through the details.
