I would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season. Thursday and
Friday are Passover and Friday is Good Friday and Sunday is Easter. I
personally will not be around, on the computer or phone until sometime
this weekend, lots of family stuff going on!
If you need anything you can try asking Steven Moix, Ewan Luca, Paul
Frields or Max Spevack in my absence if you need something done urgently.
Otherwise, please enjoy the holidays and all the festivities taking
place. Our meeting next week will take place as usual, hopefully at a
new time, which is not fixed to UTC. I'll leave Steven Moix responsible
for tracking that in my absence. See his thread.
Right before Dimitris and Diego returned to Greece, we sat down and I
conducted a brief interview with them about Fedora Localization,
Transifex, and their various contributions to Fedora.
The 15 minute interview is available here:
The total download size is only 9 MB. Please enjoy & share!

See you all there!
please find below a text which arrived this week in my inbox from a
German Linux Radio Station.
In short words (translated) they asked me if it's possible to get
somebody (or a group) who is willing to "announce" the FWN weekly in
German in the radio of that Linux station in a five-minutes-cast.
I know that there are a bunch of german speaking Ambassador who're only
reading that list and I want to ask who will participate in that "new
sub-Project" which I think is really new.
Personally I think there should be a group of 5 to six people who are
willing to work together, translate the FWN (maybe have some additional
region informations) and record them to a hearable stream in the
requested format and transfer that to the station.
It is imho important that we fullfill that request, because it's
important to be "heared" and we have the possibility to "show up" weekly
in a 5 minutes session but "YES, we can ....!"
... instead of other Groups, Projects and Distributions which are not as
organzied as the EMEA AMbassador and also Marketing Team.
At the moment I have Christoph Wickert and Yannik Stadelmaier who are
Waiting for your reply, also about your (additional) ideas

"Fedora 11, which is codenamed Leonidas, is scheduled for final release
at the end of May. It will include several new features and noteworthy
improvements, such as RPM 4.7, which will reduce the memory consumption
of complex package activity, tighter integration of PackageKit, faster
boot time with a target goal of 20 seconds, and reduced power
consumption thanks to a major tuning effort."
"All things considered, Fedora 11 progress looks good and the release is
shaping up nicely. The developers are already looking to the future and
have begun the process of drafting a schedule for Fedora 12, which could
potentially arrive in October."
I have an increasing demand in people that want to get on Fedora on my side
of the planet. But Due 2 slow internet on this side, We cant exactlly
download copies. if anyone can help, I am in need of a copy of CD's and
DVD's as soon as possible.
I listen regularly to Leo Laporte's This Week in Tech (TWiT) at http://twit.tv.
I recently started listening to a companion show, FLOSS Weekly, at
http://twit.tv/FLOSS. The show is a well-produced podcast and has a
large listening audience.
The hosts, Leo and Randal Schwartz, are actively seeking principal
members of FLOSS projects. They emphasize that it should be a leader
within the Fedora team. Guests are usually interviewed via Skype.
The contact email is merlyn(a)stonehenge.com.
This sounds like an excellent opportunity for Paul Frields or another
leader within the Fedora Project to publicize the upcoming release of
Fedora 11. There appear to be openings on the show aound F11's release
For your consideration,
