Keiran Smith is taking on the upgrade - thanks, Keiran!
Reading the 4th comment on that ticket (the long one from me) serves as
a reasonable "what's up with FI right now?" summary as of... 3 minutes ago.
David Nalley brought out a convo to public IRC today (it's bounced
around a bit in private email, I found out about it last night, and we
agreed there wasn't any reason not to have this convo on a public
list/channel, so here we go).
We logged our IRC conversation (w00t transparency - I'm trying to make
logging important IRC convos and summarizing them to the list a cultural
* Linux Pro Magazine (via the awesome Rikki Kite) can print a special
* This would cost us money (on the order of magnitude of $10k, though we
can recoup that if people pay for issues)
* This would ideally look like "Fedora Insight: The Print Version" (we'd
want the content to be community-contributed rather than hiring outside
writers, because Fedora already has awesome writers)
* If we want it for F12, we have to decide by the end of this week and
somebody has to step up to lead/drive/edit/etc. this project (a somewhat
* We can do this for a later release too, there's nothing particularly
special about right now
* Right now, unless a miracle happens and somebody *really* wants to do
this, we do not have the bandwidth to do it well for F12, but it would
be awesome to do it for a later release, so we should talk with Rikki to
see what the timing for an F13 or F14 print issue would look like.
And that's where things stand right now. Comments and thoughts welcome,

Would it be possible to get in touch with them? I would love to hear
their thoughts on how the work they're doing with Revista could fit into
a Fedora print magazine - if they are already doing all this great work,
we should find a way to showcase it.
I was interviewed by waferbaby (Daniel Bogan) about my hardware/software
setup and I go through my usage of Fedora in the interview:
Daniel's got some really interesting interviews on usesthis.com, e.g.,
with Jakob Nielsen and Joe Hewitt (creator of Firebug). Also an
interview with Danah Boyd from Microsoft Research who surprisingly uses
Anyhow since Fedora is mentioned quite extensively I figured I'd point
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but here it goes;
Since I'm getting more and more of a Fedora enthusiast I was looking
for some cool office accessories today. After doing a quick search I
ended up at RedHat's on-line store with a very limited range of
accessories. Anyway, I noticed the $2,- decals and I put a few of them
in my shopping chart. (about 5). While trying to figure out the rest
of the order procedure I came across the shipping costs. It turned out
that $65 (or $120 depending on shipping method) would be added to the
current order (still 5 stickers) to get them shipped over to The
Netherlands. Heck, if the money would all go to the Fedora Project I
might have even considered buying them but I wasn't planning on
sponsoring UPS too. :)
After taking a little bit more time I bumped into an other
possibility; a French web-shop which had a whole wardrobe of fedora
clothing (and yet again very limited accessories). Besides that, I
don't know French and I couldn't discover a possibility to switch to
English (I might have not looked good enough though).
So still no luck.
I also found out that there's a Fedora Shop SIG at
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/SIGs/Store (referring to this
mailinglist). Unfortunately the most recent activity seems to be
somewhere around in 2008. Now my actual question; is this SIG still
alive and if not, how much interest is there to reincarnate it? I'd be
happy to assist where I can.
The reason that I'm asking here is because the page doesn't state on
contacting a person or other mailing-list than this one.
Thank you for your time.
With kind regards / Met vriendelijke groet,
Toshio had some questions about some of the module packages (context
<abadger1999> mchua: So for the secondary package (pagemaster) -- I'm
not happy approving it with the bundled filterutils
<abadger1999> mchua: I've been trying to catch itbegins on irc to ask
him about when zikula2 will be out/whether we can upgrade to that in
FI/EPEL or if it's incompatible, etc.
<abadger1999> mchua: There are cases where other packages had contained
backports -- but to things from the Core language (python stdlib stuff
is what I'm thinking) not to addons.
<abadger1999> mchua: Anyhow -- If someone else wanted to review and
approve that module, we'd want to make sure that it used the zikula-2
library i available and the backport if not... but I'm not sure how to
do that in php.
Simon, in case you see this in the next 50 minutes - were you planning
on coming to the Fedora Marketing meeting today? I'm going through the
agenda now and it looks like FI should be most of it. (If not, no
worries, I'll keep logistics up to date on zikula and marketing up to
date on FI, and keep chasing these answers down.)
