"Actually running Fedora alone on the Galaxy S may become possible in
some distant future, but for now, we have to be content with running a
chroot session of Fedora, and running X11 apps via VNC. As Fedora
already exists for ARM, all we have to do is to unpack a root filesystem
and chroot into it. Easy!"
"PcPer: What are your plans for the future of this platform? What is new
JS: First of all, Fedora is engineered for the long haul. We've made a
conscious decision not to sacrifice long-term freedom for short-term
convenience. Our development efforts are based on the idea of software
and personal freedoms. If you look at the vision statement for the
Fedora Project as a whole, you'll see it's about much more than just the
bits and bytes on the latest DVD. Our vision statement says that "The
Fedora Project creates a world where free culture is welcoming and
widespread, collaboration is commonplace, and people control their
content and devices." Our work really is centered on the concepts of
freedom and free culture, communication and collaboration, openness and
transparency, and the open source development model. The main work
product of our community is the Fedora operating system"
The features that get more attention are GNOME 3, systemd, dynamic
firewall, consistent device names and boxgrinder. I think we can
throw in screenshots of Firefox 4, Libreoffice, Virt-manager and
SELinux troubleshooter and leave the rest out to keep it simple.
Hello marketing team.
We want to replace the "printing" slide in fedpraproject.org to a
slide about gnome 3 (the plan is to make it about a different feature
for every release).
We need some text about gnome 3, as it's a major Fedora 15 feature,
the text shouldn't be too long, and should describe what makes gnome 3
a great DE.
Also, we need a screenshot to that slide, and a screenshot to replace
this one , for the first slide. (We don't want the same screenshot
Right now the text is in much higher priority because we would need to
give translator some times to translate, so it's better if we will get
this as soon as possible.
"We have better support for encrypted home directories that get mounted
when you log in and that goes a long way to help people feel that their
data is secure," Jared Smith, Fedora Project Leader told InternetNews.com.
In addition to encryption, Fedora 15 debut the new dynamic firewall
technology that Smith noted was one of his favorite features in the new
"Most Linux systems use IP tables type firewalls and the problem is that
if you want to make a change to the firewall, it's hard to modify on the
fly without reloading the entire firewall," Smith said. "Fedora 15 is
really the first mainstream operating system to have a dynamic firewall
where you can add or change rules and keep the firewall up and
responding while you're making changing."

At Fedora, Red Hat developer Adam Williamson is packaging Unity because
"I wanted to check it out and figured packaging it should be about as
easy as installing Ubuntu. It wasn't, but by then my native stubbornness
kicked in and now I want to package it more or less because it's there.
I doubt it'll work terribly well . . . it'll sorta more or less work but
have lots of rough edges and not be something the upstream Unity team
would be happy to show off."
Williamson stresses, though, that his efforts are personal. "There's
been exactly no distribution-wide discussion of this; it's not some kind
of official approach to Unity or anything like that. Fedora as a whole
has no policy or opinion on Unity. Ditto for Red Hat."
"I’m pretty happy with the state of things now. I have to admit that in
the beginning, I was cursing loudly asking for my desktop and panel
back, but I’m used to the dash area and window picker now. The search
feature (which is similar to Spotlight in OSX) is really useful and I
end up using that for the majority of my tasks. I also find the
notification system very well done along with the ability of dealing
with messages without changing windows. In the end, all I can say is I
find myself using Fedora more over my pretty MacBook Air for the
majority of my tasks."
"Fedora Engineering Manager Tom Callaway has also announced that all
Fedora contributors must agree to the Fedora Project Contributor
Agreement (FPCA) by 17 June if they plan to continue contributing to
Fedora. An FAQ on the project's web site offers the FPCA wording and
provides a more detailed explanation of the reasons for this measure.
For instance, the new document is said to be simpler and remove various
obstacles that have reportedly been stumbling blocks for some developers."
