Another one of those revisor tutorials
"Do you use Fedora? Do you have Fedora tweaked to the point you would
like to either share your vision of this distribution? Or would you like
to have an image of your tweaks so that the next time you need to
install you won’t have to go back, after the basic install is done, and
install all the apps and tweaks? It’s possible with Revisor. This handy
tool from Fedora allows you to create your own “respin” of Fedora Linux
with the ease of a graphical wizard."
This is a draft of what will go out on Monday morning. Please let me
know what you think. Also, spot, is the audio content okay with you?
Oh, also please not this is without the audio introduction which I will
edit in once everything is done.
Fedora 11 Podcast Series #3 - General Overview of F11 with Tom 'Spot'
Continuing on in our series of F11 Podcasts we present the next
interview of the series with Tom 'Spot' Callaway. In case you don't
know Spot, you can be sure he knows you, he's been making Fedora happen
since before Fedora was Fedora! Spot is a Red Hat Engineer and Fedora
Engineering Manager, he is also one of the most active and most
knowledgeable community members. With keen insights and a bird's eye
view of the Fedora release process, the community and our history and
roadmap, you can be sure that any chat with post is worth your while.
Fedora 11 General Overview and Insights with Tom Spot Callaway
In the interview Spot covers much ground with everything from features
in the upcoming release such as 20 Second Startup
[http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/20SecondStartup] and Kernel Mode
Setting [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/KernelModesetting] to
the future Fedora Artists Movement! Spot also talks about the
importance and benefit of Fedora's upstream oriented developer process,
the recent enhancements to Fedora's QA process and the addition of
members to the Fedora QA team. Finally Spot takes down a nostalgic trip
down Memory Lane, with a discussion of the long history behind Fedora
and what he thinks Fedora as a community has to offer contributors and
why Fedora is the very best place to be.
I helped write what is described in the front page of what Fedora is
for. To quote from http://fedoraproject.org
" Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that showcases the latest in
free and open source software. ..."
While I think what follows after that is still useful, perhaps we can
start with something like:
"Fedora is a free alternative to proprietary operating systems like
Microsoft Windows and provides a easy and powerful graphical
environment, office suite, games and more. It is a secure and virus-free
experience with brand new releases full of major improvements every six
months all for free."
That would be useful for someone new to Linux to understand what this is
all about or if we want to be more explicit about the audience
"Fedora is very focussed on free software and does not include
proprietary or patent encumbered software applications. Fedora is a
leading edge operating system with a rapid release cycle and best suited
for free software contributors, free and open source enthusiasts"
There is a page set up for the Fedora 11 Tour. Clint (Herlo) is
supposed to have the screenshot tour done real soon, but other than that
we have some stuff that needs filling in on that page. Does anyone want
to give the text portions a go? Shouldn't be too complicated and mostly
just cutting and pasting info from other pages.
Also, has anyone finished any of their screencasts? I know Herlo was
working on doing on of the 20 second boot up.
I would appreciate if people could help out with this.

I brought this up briefly in IRC this morning and didn't want to
forget about it.
We really need a central podcasting feed from somewhere. There is a
CMS coming soon, and that would be ideal. Would it be possible for
the Fedora Planet to simply carry these things in a way that didn't
duplicate the actual podcast content to subscribers?
