A little background. Nepal is writing it's constitution. It is asking
suggestions about what needs to be included to everyone.
The question was also asked to us (We have a group of *nix users called
FOSS-NEPAL). Please suggest what we should write.
Here is what my friend Bibek Paudel has written in the slashdot:
Fedora 12 includes Gnote by default FYI
"We haven't come to a legal conclusion that is pat enough for us to make
the decision to take mono out," (Paul) Frields (Fedora Project Leader)
said. "Right now we're in a status quo. Gnote is a relatively recent
development and unfortunately was too late in the Fedora 11 development
cycle to include by default."
"When deployed alongside a Kerberos server, such as Red Hat's FreeIPA
server, this SASL functionality can allow for encrypted, authenticated,
single-sign-on-enabled remote access to VMs.
Fedora 11 taps its SELinux security framework to enforce isolation of
running VMs, using the framework's MCS (Multi Category System) policy.
This support builds on the MCS-based isolation between guest and host
that debuted in Fedora 10.
During tests, I created a pair of VMs on my Fedora 11 test box, and
could see in my process monitor that the security context information
for each running VM process included unique category attributes, as did
the virtual disk image files that corresponded to each VM."
"Finally, if I have to summarize the experience with this Fedora 11 so
far, it will be: smooth installation, up-to-date software, no surprise,
ready to work after 1 day (I had to play with nearly all the new toys
inside). I think GNU/Linux is really ready for the desktop :-)"
Dear my friends at Fedora Ambassadors et all,
The Release Party was taken in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was really good with beer, coffee, tee, bread, etc. and a Fedora cake.
About 30 people in the community (HanoiLUG), SMEs, etc. and even a man from our ministry of science and technology were attended.
In a short presentation, my staff presented some new features of Fedora 11, especially related to security and performance. Of course, the innovative view of Fedora is also discussed much.
Everyone got a LiveCD and I believe that they would try it immediately.

Hope to see all Release parties allover the world.

"Fedora 11 gives you multiple installation options: either use existing
partitions, wipe everything and use the entire disk, or install the
system side by side with one that's already on the HDD. I chose to use
the entire drive and, after Fedora 11 finished setting up the partitions
(which, by the way, were EXT4-formatted by default), the installation
started. Five minutes later the process was completed and, honestly,
this has to be the fastest operating system I've installed in a long time."
I am writing up a somewhat brief retrospective on the activities of the
Marketing team for the F11 cycle. My hopes are that we can analyze our
process and timelines and find places where can optimize or do things
differently. I want to include thoughts from everyone in marketing as
well, because I don't think it should include only my opinion(s). I
would appreciate if we could all participate.
How did we, as a team do for F11?
What things did we do well?
What things can we do better?
Should we change anything?
Is there anything that we could be doing that we are not?
Any other thoughts?
