Cool. So pretty much all of the apps we develop in-house (pkgdb, fedora
account system, bodhi, myfedora, amber, etc) are written in python_.
The web apps are all TurboGears_.
Our wiki is driven by mediawiki and we have a few other programs that we
run like zabbix which are written in php.
One of the things that we need to do soon is to start looking at the CSS
that mizmo (Máirín Duffy) is working on for MyFedora::
The idea is that mizmo is working on a specific application but breaking
the CSS into three sets:
* The first layer is generic for all Fedora sites, static and dynamic.
* The second layer is generic for all Fedora Web Applications -- so all
the web apps I mentioned earlier.
* The third layer is CSS specific to a specific Web Application.
We need to port other apps than MyFedora to using this three layer
approach with the CSS that mizmo is proposing in layer's 1 & 2 so that
we get the generic parts right. Since I'm the lead developer of the
PackageDB I'd love to see the three layers integrated with the current
PackageDB code. Is this something you'd be interested in doing?

I'm actually involved into Fedora mainly as a translator and a very
very little packaging.
My personnal interests are simulation and modelisation of physics problems.
Concerning my participation to the website-team, i have some Python
skills ans little knowledges about PHP and CSS.
I'd like to help your team for all kinds of things, especially little
ones that only need few optimizations.
What kind of work could you give to me for my free time ?

I just posted an update
... which I reposted below.
Here is the task's project page:
The schedule currently allows a long time (~1 month) for scoping and
vetting solutions, then another few weeks for installing a version to
test as a replacement for docs.fp.o. Based on that experience and
tweaks done during the F10 release process, we can plan for www.fp.o
_after_ F10 releases. That way we use our stable systems through the
release where it counts the most.
In case it is not obvious, the intention of the schedule sync is to
provide the full F10 Release Candidate release notes from docs.fp.org
via the new CMS.

Fedora CMS focus and scope
After my post, Why and where Fedora needs a CMS solution, which
included a follow-up discussion on fedora-websites-list, there
were questions and gentle dissent. I think those stemmed mainly
from it not being clear what the intended scope is for a CMS
solution. There were also calls for one or another specific CMS
solution, which we’ll get to in due time.
One concern expressed in comments to my post were two
interrelated ideas: that contributors were going to be forced to
use a CMS instead of whatever solution they prefer (i.e., a
wiki), and that this would end-up splitting content into
different areas, which is confusing for everyone.
The scope of the CMS solution that I am looking for is to cover
two specific websites: www.fedoraproject.org and
docs.fedoraproject.org. The ‘www..’ site hosts content that is
relatively static, usually only changes between releases, and is
part of a management and translation process. The ‘docs…’ site
hosts full-length documentation that has been drafted, edited,
translated, and organized into topics and by version/release.
The wiki continues to be a community documentation site,
focusing on content of the smaller and easier to digest size and
scope that works best in a wiki format, with two audiences:
contributors and end-users, in that order.
In addition, there are some specific content topics that have
lived on the wiki as their canonical home, which has required
them to have an access control list (ACL) defining who can edit.
My goal is to get that content’s canonical home moved to the CMS
within the www container.
People who work on that more controlled content as writers and
editors do not need to switch from the wiki as their preferred
authoring tool. It is the formal publishing location that we
need to change to be within the CMS. Then we can use the CMS’s
native access control tools. This process matches what we do for
the release notes, where the community writes and edits content
in the release notes beats, but the final publication locations
(docs.fedoraproject.org and the fedora-release-notes package)
are not wide-open for at-will changes by anyone in the
This follows a policy that Fedora Documentation has long used,
which Fedora Websites began to follow a few releases ago. For
multiple reasons, certain types of content cannot have the wiki
as their canonical reference point. One case is where the
content integrity is highly important to the very existence of
the project, such as legal matters and packaging directions.
Content is so powerful in this area that the changing of even
one word can put the entire project in jeopardy.
Anther case is when the translations and the original must be in
tight synchronization, which is not trivial in a free moving
wiki environment. The case that started it all off for the
Websites and Infrastructure team was the fundamental slowness of
any dynamic content system when the pages are being hammered for
information after a release.
(Note to self: the CMS solution must be able to make specific
pages or content areas static, serving them from built web
components and not out of the database.)
After the Fedora Websites meeting we just had, there is now a
specific task I am working against, and a rough timeline. Please
continue to leave comments here, on fedora-websites-list, or
directly to me via email.

I'm Alessio and i'm an Italian webmaster. I ask you now sorry for my bad english!
I'm interesting to help the fedore project as a webmaster, developing the websites and administrating it.
My experiences:I worked a freelance webmaster for 3 years (and i'm working now), developing many different websites from e-commerces to blogs. 90% of websites that i developed were in PHP/MySQL language. This is the first language that i learned and i used (and i use).
I know also (basic) C/C++, HTML, Perl, Python. I'm not a designer!! :PI managed many websites (personal and company websites), i have a good experience with many opensource CMS like Wiki, PHPnuke, Joomla, osCommerce, OpenCommercio...and much more!I worked for 2 years (parallament to these) in the Domains and Hosting sector. I worked for 2 hosting companies as a PHP developer (first) and a System Administrator. I have a good expericence with Cpanel, Plesk panel and other server panels, linux systems (server), ssh and linux server applications (ftp, dns applications...).
I used Fedora, CentOS, RedHat and Ubuntu as linux system. I have also a Windows experience (I used and i'm using Windows 2000, Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista).
I have also a little experience in the game developing sector.

I hope that i can help the fedora project and the fedora web group.
I wait your answer.

I owe you all an apology for leaving things the way i did. Although it was
never my intention things turned out this way and i couldn't keep working on
the fedora website, specially on the get-fedora section as i commited. Thing
is my job and my training is gettin all my time and right now i dont have
any free time to spend on my passion (Fedora). It is a shame to me to
recognize that right now im not the best person to rely on about the
get-fedora section as i wont have the time right now to work on it, so i
would like to ask for someone interested to keep working on this and maybe
in a near future ill be back helping you all again.
Sorry i didnt wrote this mail before and probably you all wondered where was
I. I really dont have an excuse (maybe i was gwtting back home really tired
and thats why i didnt bother myself to write this). Anyway thats all for
now, Of course i'll try to be as updated as i can with the fedora websites
progress but for now im afraid i cant keep working with all you
So keep all the good work you all have been doing!

On 23 July, I ordered a Fedora 9 i386 CD set from LinuxOnline.biz. The disks are faulty; they won't even pass the media check utility no matter what machine I use.
As LinuxOnline.biz has no telephone number, I sent an e-mail to them requesting return information on 13 August, followed by two additional e-mails on 19 August, one through your web site and one addressed to the primary contact shown on your web sire, Irdayante Kadir. To this date I have received no response from LinuxOnline.biz of any sort.
You may want to consider removing this company from you selection of vendors: they do not provide a quality product and apparently couldn't care less about their customer.

I need a website as fedora-manipur.org . So, tell me what are the procedures
for this. This will help me to promote fedora in my region as a fedora
ambassador. I will put everything regarding my region. I also have some
knowledge of web designing. So, i need support from all of you here.
Thanks and Regards,
