Cockpit 169 (released today) contains a change to take advantage of the
recently added PAM support for /etc/motd.d to display a helpful note to the
admin about how to start or access cockpit.
The required PAM changes have already landed in Fedora 28.
It seems that the PAM configuration of Fedora 28 (at least in our test
images here) doesn't use pam_motd at all, though.
I'd like to start a discussion about what would be appropriate here. We
want at least a message displayed when people log in to an interactive
session with ssh, but it might also be useful to display a message at the
virtual console, before or after login.
Thanks in advance,
Join us on irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-1 for the Fedora 29
Final Release Readiness meeting. This meeting will be held on Thursday,
2018-10-18 at 19:00 UTC.
We will meet to make sure we are coordinated and ready for the Final
release of Fedora 29. Please note that this meeting will be held even
if the release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two
You may receive this message several times in order to open this
meeting to the teams and to raise awareness, so hopefully more team
representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams.

I'm Alberto from the Marketing team, I'm asking for help to complete
the Fedora 29 Talking points.
Talking points are key highlights of the new release. There are
different types of talking points for different types of people:
general desktop users/everyone, developers, and sysadmins. They are
meant to provide a short, effective answer to the question "What cool
stuff is in the latest release of Fedora?" They are compelling, not
