--- Fedora Announcement News ---

---- Fedora 11 End of Life ----

Paul W. Frields, Fedora Project Leader, announced[1], "This announcement 
is a reminder that as of 2010-06-25, Fedora 11 has reached its end of 
life for updates. As planned, last update pushes to Fedora 11 were made 
in advance[2] of this date. No further updates, including security 
updates, will be available for Fedora 11.

Fedora 12 will continue to receive updates until approximately one month 
after the release of Fedora 14. The maintenance schedule of Fedora 
releases is documented on the Fedora Project wiki[3]."

---- Passing the baton ----

Paul W. Frields, Fedora Project Leader, announced[1]:

"A leadership change is always momentous, and the Fedora Project is no 
exception to this rule. I wanted to share some thoughts about being the 
Fedora Project Leader, tell the community about the person who will be 
taking over that role soon, and to let you know what to expect over the 
next few weeks and months.

* * *

I joined the Fedora Project in 2003 so I could give something back to a 
free software community from whose work I had benefited for a long time. 
Fedora gave me the chance to bring my skills and experience and use them 
to help people I'd never get a chance to meet personally. I had no 
inkling at the time that one day I'd have the opportunity to serve the 
community beyond helping write some documentation.

When Max Spevack called me in late 2007 to let me know he was 
considering stepping down, and was interested in having me succeed him 
as the Fedora Project Leader, I was surprised and humbled. It was a once 
in a lifetime opportunity to both serve the community and to contribute 
as an employee at Red Hat, where I had already made many friends while 
working on Fedora -- an opportunity I was happy to take. Over the past 
two and a half years, through many challenges and changes, not once have 
I regretted that decision.

* * *

One of the hallmarks of Fedora leadership is that it's open to change. 
The FPL is not a semi-benevolent dictator for life, but rather a 
position to which new people can regularly bring their passion for 
making Fedora better. And so, just as previous FPLs announced their 
readiness to search for the next leader, I did so a few months ago, in 
the spirit of openness and transparency that's a hallmark of the Fedora 

The FPL job is a salaried position at Red Hat, and the Fedora Board 
members as well as many other stakeholders have been informed and 
involved with the process of selecting a new FPL. The job posting 
brought in numerous applicants from throughout the community. Through 
the hiring process we identified a few best qualified candidates. From 
them the next FPL was selected, based on the qualifications and 
experience our entire community expects. At every juncture during that 
process, the panels were focused on the needs of the Fedora Project, to 
ensure the next FPL would be a good listener, speaker, and writer; 
thoughtfully consider solutions to difficult problems; and most 
importantly, lead effectively.

So it's with great pleasure that I announce Jared Smith will be joining 
Red Hat in a few weeks as the new Fedora Project Leader.

* * *

Some of our community already knows Jared, but I want to take a moment 
to tell everyone a little more about his background. He doesn't like to 
trumpet his own qualifications, but since he happens to be away on 
personal business this week, I'll just do that for him. :-)

Jared's been a long-time user of both Red Hat and Fedora, and an active 
participant in the the Fedora community since 2007. He's primarily spent 
his time working with the infrastructure and documentation teams. He's 
helped with the development of Fedora Talk, our community VoIP telephony 
system. Fedora Talk allows various Fedora developers and contributors to 
communicate verbally for free across the internet.

Jared has also participated in community events such as various FUDCons 
and Fedora Activity Days. In addition, he has assisted with toolchain 
development, release materials, and steering duties as a member of the 
Fedora Docs team.

Jared also brings a wealth of of both technical and community relations 
expertise from his prior job history. His previous employer is Digium, 
the commercial sponsor of the open source Asterisk software. While at 
Digium, Jared worked as Community Relations Manager, as well as an 
instructor, lecturer, and training department manager.

Before working for Digium, Jared was a Network Operations Manager for 
the web analytics company Omniture (since acquired by Adobe Systems), 
where he managed a network of over 6,500 Linux machines. These 
experiences as a speaker, evangelist, practitioner, and collaborator 
make Jared exceptionally well suited for the position of FPL.

On a more personal note, I've come to know Jared well over the past 
several years. He cares deeply about community and family, not the least 
part of which is the Fedora community and family. His honesty, 
integrity, good humor, patience, intelligence, and good old-fashioned 
common sense will serve him and our growing community well, as we try to 
take Fedora to the next level.

* * *

Although Jared is away on personal travel right now, Max and I have 
already started including him in some important conversations, and the 
community can expect additional exciting news shortly. Over the next few 
months, part of my changing responsibilities in Red Hat will be to 
ensure a smooth runway for Jared, as he takes over the duties of the FPL 
job. Max Spevack will also continue to assist, especially where his role 
as the manager of Red Hat's Community Architecture team brings strategic 
benefits to the Fedora Project.

Over time, I expect to spend more time on work that's internal to Red 
Hat, but I will continue to be involved in Fedora to some extent as an 
individual contributor. That transition will allow Jared to effectively 
bring his own vision and energy to Fedora, and I look forward to helping 
him in whatever ways I can.

I hope the entire community will join me in welcoming Jared to Red Hat 
as the FPL, and that you'll gift him with the support and friendship 
I've enjoyed and treasured over the past two and a half years."

---- FPL travel to LATAM events! ----

Paul W. Frields, Fedora Project Leader, announced[1]:

"In just a few weeks, the Fedora community in Latin America will hold a 
major FUDCon event in Santiago, Chile, from July 15-17, 2010. You can 
find all the details on our wiki[2]

Encouraging the growth of Fedora community around the world is important 
to our project. That's why the responsibilities of the Fedora Project 
Leader include lowering barriers and advocating for involvement and 
participation. One of the ways the FPL does this is by travelling to 
different community events and talking about the way that Fedora works, 
and our dedication to sustainable community and free software development.

So I'm very pleased and excited to announce that our new Fedora Project 
Leader Jared Smith's first appearance at a community event will be at 
the FUDCon in Santiago, Chile. In addition, just a few days afterward 
Jared will attend the FISL 11 conference in Porto Alegre, Brazil.

Both events represent a unique opportunity for the Fedora Project to 
support our friends and extend our community in Latin America. As 
always, the FUDCon event in Santiago is free and open to everyone to 
register and attend. We look forward to seeing the community at these

--- Fedora Development News ---

---- Bodhi 0.7.5 release ----

Luke Macken announced[1]:

"I just pushed a version 0.7.5 of bodhi into production. This release 
contains the following notable changes:

proventesters & strict critical path update handling

For critical path[2] updates to be approved for pushing to the stable 
repository, they now require a minimum karma of 2, consisting of a +1 
from a single proventester[3], and a +1 from another authenticated user.

You can get a list of critical path updates using the bodhi web interface[4]

You can optionally pass in a specific 'release' or an 'untested' flag, 
which will return a list of critical path updates that have yet to be 
approved. I have not added these links to the main interface yet, 
because at the moment they are fairly expensive calls. This will be 
addressed in an upcoming release.

The latest command-line client also supports these options as well:

$ bodhi --critpath --untested --release F13

Auto-obsoletion re-enabled

I re-enabled the auto-obsoletion code in bodhi. This means that new 
updates will automatically obsolete older testing updates containing the 
same packages. The new update will also inherit all of the old updates 
bugs and notes. This code had been disabled for a while now, due to some 
nasty edge cases, but those have since been resolved.

If you experience any problems, please file tickets here[5]"

-- Planet Fedora --

In this section, we cover the highlights of Planet Fedora[1] - an 
aggregation of blogs from Fedora contributors worldwide.

Contributing Writer: Adam Batkin

--- General ---

Jonathan Dieter mentioned[1] that deltarpms should be working again now 
for Fedora 13.

Benjamin Otte analyzed[2] the performance of Cairo with a number of 
different graphics chipset and driver configurations. The results may 
surprise you.

Máirín Duffy found[3] a bunch of amusing geeky comic strips. But more 
seriously, Máirín identified[4] the first "Fedora Design Bounty Ninja". 
"Jef responded to our first Fedora Design Bi-Weekly Bounty just a couple 
of hours after it was posted, and he did an amazing job putting together 
a 6-page layout for the Fedora 13 feature profiles, carefully adhering 
to all of the Fedora branding guidelines and providing all of his source 

Adam Williamson reminded[5] Flash users running 64-bit systems how they 
can use Flash Player, now that the 64-bit downloads have been pulled.

Andrew Vermilya Jamison outled[6] a few of the exciting new features of 
Fedora 13.

Lennart Poettering suggested[7] a number of sources of data that could 
be used under Linux to help generate unique identifiers. "When 
programming software that cooperates with software running on behalf of 
other users, other sessions or other computers it is often necessary to 
work with unique identifiers. These can be bound to various hardware and 
software objects as well as lifetimes. Often, when people look for such 
an ID to use they pick the wrong one because semantics and lifetime or 
the IDs are not clear."

Lennart also wrote[8] a[9] pair of articles on handling locking under 
Linux (and the sad state of locking under Linux in general).

Luis Villa dissected[10] the US Supreme Court Bilski ruling. "I'm afraid 
that at the end of this brief train ride, my only firm conclusion can be 
that the real winners here are patent lawyers - this decision creates no 
new certainties, only uncertainties, which will encourage patenters to 
spend more money patenting things, and the rest of us to waste time and 
energy worrying about the problem - time and energy that should have 
been spent on innovating..."

The Red Hat Press Office announced[11] that Jared Smith will become the 
new Fedora Project Leader. Paul W. Frields posted[12] a few words about 
passing on the baton to Jared.

-- Marketing --

In this section, we cover the happenings for Fedora Marketing Project 
from 2010-06-23 to 2010-06-29.


Contributing Writer: Neville A. Cross

Nelson Marques[1] continues his effort to complete a SWOT analysis.

Jef van Schendel[2] started to work stetical details of the Fedora's 
Twitter account. Gerard Braad[3] proposed to extend this to identi.ca 

Jef van Schendel[4] shared the printable version of the feature profiles

Robyn Bergeron[5] is trying to make a list of interview topics that we 
can tackle to have content flowing in between releases.

Nelson Marques[6] contribute with a useful SOP (Standar Operational 
Procedure) for doing focus group, which can be handy for anyone in the 
project. He also picked up on having a slide deck[7] which ultimately 
ended in a ticket for desing team for creating a full template with 
official fonts, background and predefined colors

Finally we have MMM – Marketing Meeting Minutes[8].

-- Fedora In the News --

In this section, we cover news from the trade press and elsewhere that 
is re-posted to the Fedora Marketing list[1]


Contributing Writer: Pascal Calarco

1. http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/

This past week's press focused on the appointment of Jared Smith as the 
new Fedora Project leader. Several postings follow.

--- New Fedora Project Leader appointed (The H Online) ---

Kara Schlitz forwarded[1] a brief posting about Jared Smith's appointment:

"Jared Smith will be the new Project Leader of the Fedora Project. This 
is the second non-Red Hat employee Red Hat has hired and appointed as 
Fedora Project Leader, after previous Project Leader Paul W. Frields."

The full post is available[2].

1. http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/marketing/2010-June/013200.html

--- New project leader wears the Fedora (The Register UK) ---

Kara Schlitz forwarded[1] a posting covering Fedora 13 from a blog from 

"Paul Frields, who has been getting his paycheck from Red Hat to run the 
Fedora development Linux variant since 2008, is moving back inside the 
company to work on Enterprise Linux, and an outsider named Jared Smith 
is being brought in as the new Fedora Project Leader.

Frields joined Red Hat in February 2008, replacing Max Spevack, another 
Red Hat employee who ran the open source Linux development product from 
February 2006 until Frields took over. Smith will take over the FPL 
position (which is a full-time job with a Red Hat paycheck) to steer the 
development of Fedora 14, something that Frields already got the ball 
rolling on."

--- Red Hat names new Fedora Project Leader (Internetnews.com) ---

Kara Schlitz forwarded[1] a posting from Internetnews.com:

"I'm a huge fan of the work and the leadership that current Fedora 
Project Leader Paul Frields has done since 2008. Frields has always been 
one of the most articulate, honest and insightful Linux community 
leaders that I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

. . .

The process of how Fedora's leadership is chosen is different than other 
distributions. It's not a totally democratic process like the one that 
Debian has. On the other hand it's not totally autocratic like Ubuntu. 
In a mailing list posting announcing the transition, Frields explained 
the process. "One of the hallmarks of Fedora leadership is that it's 
open to change," Frields wrote. "The FPL is not a semi-benevolent 
dictator for life, but rather a position to which new people can 
regularly bring their passion for making Fedora better...The FPL job is 
a salaried position at Red Hat, and the Fedora Board members as well as 
many other stakeholders have been informed and involved with the process 
of selecting a new FPL."

-- Ambassadors --

In this section, we cover Fedora Ambassadors Project[1].

Contributing Writer: Larry Cafiero

--- Fedora Release Party in Quebec ---

Rene Purcell reports that Fedora Ambassadors in Quebec held a Fedora 13 
release party in Québec city earlier this month. Many people attended to 
learn new features and discuss about the new release.

Jean-Francois Saucier and Rene gave a presentation about new features in 
Goddard, and attendees were offered live media, as well as setting up a 
usb stick station where we offered to create live usb sticks.

A report on the event can be found here.

--- Let us know about your Fedora 13 activities ---

Fedora 13 has now launched and Ambassadors are encouraged to hold 
release events. If you are planning to hold an event, let Fedora Weekly 
News know. Drop a line to lcafiero=at=fedoraproject-dot-org with the 
details and we'll get it in FWN.

--- Test Day process improvements ---

A message[1] from James Laska prompted a wide discussion of possible 
improvements to the Test Day process to improve participation. James 
asked[2] if the group was trying to run too many events and not 
dedicating sufficient time to each, but Adam Williamson did not think so[3].

Jóhann Guðmundsson suggested[4] extending the test period to a week and 
broadening the coverage of each event. Adam felt the concurrency aspect 
of a single day to bring testers and developers together in real-time 
was valuable, but thought Jóhann had a valuable point in that the group 
could do a better job of making it clear to potential testers that 
testing performed outside of the Test Day is still valuable. Jeff Raber 
made some concrete suggestions[5] as to how this could be achieved, and 
Adam implemented them[6].

Jeff also suggested changing the name of the events, though Adam 
mentioned in his reply that he had not been able to think of anything 
that improved on 'Test Day'. Eric Blake suggsted[7] 'Test Blitz', James 
contributed[8] 'Bug Day' and Jóhann favored[9]'Test Sprint'. Adam 
jokingly proposed a poll[10], and added some wider-ranging thoughts 
about how the process could be re-organized to provide greater 
opportunities for participation and publicity while not losing the 
aspect of concurrency.

--- Weekly Design Team IRC Meeting ---

A new weekly Design Team IRC Meeting happened, the notes[1] are 
available, and it covered Fedora 14 Artwork Schedule, the Trac tickets 
queue, the Design Team Bi-Weekly Bounty, the fedora official font and 
marketing the design team.


--- The Design Team Story ---

Robyn Bergeron from the Marketing team asked[1] for stories from the 
Design Team "it would be super cool to do a piece on what the Design 
team is up to - particularly since we're really at the start of the 
cycle here, and it's a great time for people to get involved and come up 
to speed without it being crunch time. :)", the topic was discussed at 
the weekly IRC meeting where Robyn was invited, and Máirín Duffy 
summed[2] the conclusions, as 6 possible interviews with members of the 
team on various projects they are working on.
