An edited version of the interview with Josef Bacik is now on the feature
profile page. I'm open for any suggestions you have (or you can add to it
as much as you want.)
During our sprint today Dan, Ashley, Mel, Adrienne, and I continued to edit
our draft of the One Page Release Notes. It can be viewed on the One Page
Release Notes wiki page (sorry, I can't remember the link) . As always, any
comments or edits are welcome.
Tyler, Dan, Ashley, & Adrienne

Find me on IRC tomorrow during class and we'll talk. Henrik (cc'd) is
'wonderer' on IRC and has been doing a lot of press kit stuff recently -
he'd be another good person to talk with.
Finally, I'm forwarding your question to the mailing list - always feel
free to ask questions on-list, because there are a larger number of
people who may be able to help.
In answer to your questions, hosting the images on the wiki would be a
good place to start. Here's how.
1. If you don't already have a FAS account, create one -
2. The username/password you just made will allow you to edit pages on
the wiki; you can log in at
https://fedoraproject.org/w/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin (or the
"log in" tab at the top right of any wiki page on
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki). If you're new to wikis, read
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Wiki. Matt and Darren or one of your
classmates can also help you get familiar with wiki editing; in-person
help is probably the fastest/easiest way.
3. The left sidebar of the wiki has a menu item called "Upload File." It
is at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Special:Upload and I think the file
upload dialog there is pretty self-explanatory. If it isn't, holler. :)
4. Poof! Your files are uploaded.
Hope this helps - I'll see you on IRC tomorrow. I don't know your IRC
nick, so you'll have to give me a ping - I'm mchua. There will also be
others around who may be able to help out.
This sounds interesting and something to keep an eye on for several
factors. I really want to see how this goes if such thing happens.
PS: no free ammunition for this thread.
The *real* problem however is that young people hardly see any benefit in
becoming a develoiper. With universities that effectively are microsoft gold
resellers, with twitter, Facebook, Apple telling them that it still all is
AOL' 95, why should they care?

Though this seems to be a very specific article, it is still valid, and
the most interesting is actually the replies its having.
In case someone wants to check it out, I recommend it. And yes, this is
deeply related and a good source for Marketing people 8)
