List of Planet content for FI

So, reviewing Planet for the last few days has revealed to me just how
much valuable  content people are posting there, and the potentially
huge amount of material that could be appropriate for FI in one form
or another.

Has much thought been given to the kind of content that should be
posted to FI? If not, it might be time to do so :) Some of the posts
below, for instance, are full blown how tos, or could easily be
developed into instructions on how to use Fedora to achieve something,
while others are short advisories that are almost certainly useful for
the whole of the Fedora community, incl. those who don't read Planet.
Others still are mentions of events or activities that deserve write
ups to reveal the vivacity of the community... the final category of
posts, at least as I'm describing it, are more commentary on wider
issues not directly related to Fedora but linked closely to the spirit
of the project and have an indirect impact. Maybe a number of topic
feeds, or a highlights feed, might be needed at some point?

Many may be considered not appropriate, but I thought as a starting
point for discussion, the posts below all represent potential for one
kind of post or another.

I'll continue monitoring, but noticed my list had grown rather long so
thought I'd pass it along now for refinement, discussion and direction
for further curation.



p.s. sorry for the lack of links... got a little lazy.

necessarily a piece in itself, but it might make for an interesting

focussed around trust)
