The page for free media requests has not been updated as of now...
Its feb 4th and the site still shows that the request is closed for Jan
2009 and to check back next month...
Is this service being discontinued else when can fresh request fro free
media be made and where?
While trying to downlaod fedora core 10 I get this message
You don't have permission to access
/fedora/releases/10/Fedora/x86_64/iso/Fedora-10-x86_64-DVD.iso on this
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use
an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Please suggest remedies
A couple of desktop devels brought to my attention that we
actually make it easier to download ppc than x86_64, the
latter which is likely a lot more common.
I think we can approach solving this in a few different ways:
1. Add another button for x86_64, and place it above the PPC
2. Take away the PPC button, and replace it with a 'Other
Architectures: x86_64, ppc, etc.' button.
I was taking a look at the website layout as I was downloading Fedora 11
Alpha and I thought it would be great if we could add a link to
liveusb-creator  on the Get Fedora page. Windows users would be able
to easily download the Live media, copy it to their USB key and give
Fedora a try without having to worry about burning ISOs or using up a
blank CD. Burning ISOs isn't that big of a deal - searching for "iso
burn" on download.com reveals free burning utilities - but from my
experience, it's a question that a lot of new users ask.
The attached mail has come as undeliverable, but the bottom of the
mailer report has my fedoraunity username @ fedoraproject.org. Has this
come through you guys?

My advice, why don't you just buy Linux For You magazine Jan 2009 issue. Coz
it's packed with free Fedora 10 ix86 DVD... hurry coz it might just get sold
out. The Feb 2009 issue will come out in a day or two. I heard it's packed
with openSUSE 11.1 and Sabayon 4.0!!!

I remove all the content of my personnal directory "opossum1er" on
fedorapeople (.ssh, public-html) with filezilla… :(
What can I do now?

I sent this message to infrastructure and docs last week, but before joining
the websites team on FAS I thought I should forward it here:
Having just requested access to the sysadmin and sysadmin-test groups on FAS
and on the advice of David Nalley I thought I should introduce myself. I
have been working with the docs team over the last week on the possibility
of running the Zikula Application Framework as the CMS behind
docs.fedoraproject.org. I am a member of the board of the Zikula Software
Foundation and the Zikula Steering Committee, and I have been acting as the
lead in discussions about how to best address the needs of the docs project
on their website, and the needs of the Fedora project at large.
My name is Simon Birtwistle, and I'm currently located in Cambridge in the
UK. I am in the final year of studying for a degree in Computer Science at
Cambridge University, and providing all goes well I'll be graduating in
June. I've used Fedora on and off for years and years, though despite
thinking about it I never got around to contributing. Most of my time is
taken up with the Zikula project, where my work with the Steering Committee
involves project management and day to day organisation, but I'm hoping that
I can combine my work there with useful work on the Fedora websites where
Skills wise, I am mainly a web developer, as you'd expect, with a good
knowledge of PHP and MySQL. I also have experience with Java as well as C#
.NET and some other less well known languages from my degree course. I have
also used Docbook in the past for Zikula project documentation, so I at
least have a vague idea where the docs project are coming from.
I'm hoping that I, and Zikula as a project, will be able to provide a big
boost to the docs project's publishing workflow.
