---Fedora Announcements---

----Retiring blogs.fedoraproject.org on 2011-07-01----

Kevin Fenzi announced[1]:

"Greetings.

There has been some confusion and misunderstanding around 
blogs.fedoraproject.org recently. This email will hopefully clear them up.

At the Tempe Fudcon, the Fedora Infrastructure team determined that we 
should retire our blogs.fedoraproject.org service. The reasons for this 
were:

We currently have no infrastructure members who are driving support of 
this service. (Fixing bugs, following upstream or improving the service).

Wordpress has a long history of security issues, requiring frequent, 
custom patches or updates to keep it secure.

Many other sites out there are providing blog services as their core 
mission, likely resulting in a more feature-full and compelling 
offering. Some of these sites like wordpress.com are commited to free 
software, like Fedora is.

Usage of the service was quite low. We have 92 blogs, but only 39 of 
them had more than 5 posts. Only 6 of them had posts in the last month, 
and only 23 had posts in 2011.

While we are open to interested parties stepping forward to help us 
maintain the service, currently there is no compelling reason to keep 
the service running.

We will be happy to help any user wishing to transition their blog to 
another service. We will provide web site redirects and dumps of their 
posts.

Please contact fedora infrastructure (infrastructure at 
lists.fedoraproject.org) with further questions or concerns.

---- Appointment to the Fedora Board and reminder of upcoming elections ----

Jared K. Smith announced[1],

"The Fedora Board consists of five elected seats and four appointed 
seats. In this elections cycle, there will be two openings for appointed 
Board seats and three opening for elected Board seats. As part of the 
normal Board succession process[2], one Board appointment is made before 
Board elections and the other is made after the election cycle.

I'm happy to announce that Guillermo Gomez has accepted the 
responsibility of serving on the Fedora Board. Guillermo has 
demonstrated his commitment to Fedora through his tireless efforts on a 
number of different fronts, including working on packaging, development, 
and ambassador programs. He has also shown his ability to mentor new 
contributors and help grow the Fedora community. I have no doubt that 
he'll continue these efforts while on the Board, and that he'll bring 
his perspective to help the Board as it makes decisions affecting the 
direction that Fedora takes. I would like to publicly thank Guillermo 
for his willingness to serve, and I hope the entire Fedora community 
will join me in welcoming him to the Board.

Guillermo will fill seat A4 (see the Board History[3] for a list of the 
seats), which has been held by Stephen Smoogen for the past year. I'd 
also like to take this opportunity to publicly thank Stephen for the 
work he's done on behalf of the Fedora Board.

Elections for the three open elected seats on the Board (as well as 
FESCo elections) will begin on June 2nd at UTC 0001, as shown on the 
Fedora wiki's Elections page[4]. All community members are encouraged to 
cast their vote until the elections close at the end of the day (UTC 
time) on June 8th. Within a week or two of the end of elections, another 
appointment will be made for the remaining Board seat (seat A3). If you 
have interest in serving on the Fedora Board, please don't hesitate to 
contact me directly to indicate your willingness to serve.

---- FUDCon APAC now open for bids ----

Jared K. Smith announced[1]:

"FUDCon (the Fedora Users and Developers Conference) is the premier 
Fedora event. We typically have a FUDCon event in North America, Latin 
America, and Europe each year. This year, I'm pleased to announce that 
we'll also be having a FUDCon event in the Asia-Pacific region.

I've confirmed that we have budget set aside for a FUDCon in the 
Asia-Pacific region, and I'm now soliciting bids for FUDCon APAC. Bids 
should be created on the Fedora wiki, and a link to the bid mailed to 
the fudcon-planning list. All bids should be completed by June 23rd. 
Soon after the bidding process has closed, I'll meet together with 
FAMSCo, the Ambassadors in that region, and our primary corporate 
sponsor to pick the winning location. After the location has been 
selected, we'll invite people to start registering and due to the 
details of our budget, the time frame for FUDCon APAC this year will 
likely be in either November or December. Next year, I'll work to try to 
spread the FUDCon events around a bit more evenly, so that we can have 
one FUDCon event roughly each quarter.

The bidding process is described in more detail at[2]. Any interested 
parties are invited to submit their bids up until June 23rd. If you have 
any questions or concerns, please bring them up on the fudcon-planning 
mailing list.

I look forward to seeing your proposals!

-- Jared Smith Fedora Project Leader "

---- Elections: Notice of change in voting period and correction of 
eligibility for the Board election ----

David Nalley announced[1]:

"Hi folks,

Wanted to make you aware of a situation that was discovered last night 
and responded to this morning.

A number of people caught an issue in the eligibility configuration for 
voters in the Board Election. Per the Board's Succession Planning[2] 
document this election is open to any person in the Fedora Accounts 
System who has completed the CLA. I mistakenly configured this election 
for CLA+1 which means that in addition to completing the CLA a person 
would have to be a member of an additional group. Members of the 
infrastructure team noted this and created a ticket in the Board's trac 
system late last night (no link as it's not visible to non-board 
members). That mis-configuration has now been corrected, and to ensure 
that we have not unduly disenfranchised any potential voters, the Board 
election period only has been extended by 24 hours from 08 June 23:59:59 
to 09 June 23:59:59. Please note that the election period for the FESCo 
election remains unchanged.

I apologize for mis-configuring the election app, and thank the vigilant 
members of our community and infrastructure team who caught the issue so 
early in the process and helped to correct the problem in a timely manner.

Thanks,

David Nalley"

---- Reminder: Fedora Engineering Steering Committee election town hall

---- Changes to the Packaging Guidelines ----

Tom Callaway announced[1]:

"Here is this week's change to the Fedora Packaging Guidelines:

---

The systemd guidelines on naming unit files have been amended to tell 
packagers how to make compatibility symlinks for alternate service names 
should their service have had a different name in the past.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Systemd#Naming

---

These guidelines (and changes) were approved by the Fedora Packaging 
Committee (FPC).

Many thanks to the Fedora Community, and all of the members of the FPC, 
for assisting in drafting, refining, and passing these guidelines.

As a reminder: The Fedora Packaging Guidelines are living documents! If 
you find something missing, incorrect, or in need of revision, you can 
suggest a draft change. The procedure for this is documented here[2]

Thanks,

~spot"

---- Outage: Upgrades/Reboots - 2011-05-31 18:00 UTC ----

Kevin Fenzi announced[1]:

"Outage: Upgrades/Reboots - 2011-05-31 18:00 UTC

There will be an outage starting at 18:00 UTC on 2011-05-31, which will 
last approximately 2 hours. During this time there may be very short 
outages of services as machines are updated and rebooted into new kernels.

Machines will be rebooted in an order that allows for least disruption 
to services.

In many cases, there will be no noticeable downtime due to redundancy 
and fail-over.

To convert UTC to your local time, take a look at[2] or run:

--- Fedora Events (June-August 2011) ---

The purpose of event is to build a global Fedora events calendar, and to 
identify responsible Ambassadors for each event. The event page is laid 
out by quarter and by region. Please maintain the layout, as it is 
crucial for budget planning. Events can be added to this page whether or 
not they have an Ambassador owner. Events without an owner are not 
eligible for funding, but being listed allows any Ambassador to take 
ownership of the event and make it eligible for funding. In plain words, 
Fedora events are the exclusive and source of marketing, learning and 
meeting all the fellow community people around you. So, please mark your 
agenda with the following events to consider attending or volunteering 
near you!

---- Good times with Fedora Linux upgrades (ZDNet UK) ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] a review of Fedora 15 from the UK ZDNet site:

"I've found that upgrading from version to version of Fedora is quite 
easy in fact. And one bonus is that all of the software on the system is 
automatically upgraded to the latest version which includes the latest 
bugfixes, etc. Sure, running software updates on the existing 
distribution running on the system will work, too, but updates are no 
longer released for a particular version of Fedora about 13 months after 
it is initially released. While this sounds bad, it really isn't. The 
upgrade process for Fedora is as simple as inserting the CD (or flash 
drive), selecting "upgrade" at the main menu, and following a few simple 
steps. What you end up with is a system that is totally up to date and 
refreshed with all of the latest RPM packages, while all data is 
completely retained. What is more of a pleasant surprise with Fedora 
upgrades is that all files and settings are completely retained for most 
if not ALL software on the system because Linux stores everything in the 
user's profile folder."

---- Fedora 15 (Lovelock) Released (ZDNet UK) ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] another posting on the release of Fedora 15 
from ZDNet UK:

"Whew. That was longer than I had intended it to be, but I suppose with 
a release which makes changes of this magnitude it is to be expected. My 
personal summary is that Gnome 3 seems pretty nice, and I have made a 
lot more progress in adjusting and adapting to it, and actually starting 
to like it in a relatively short time than I ever have made with Ubuntu 
Unity. I think for Fedora loyalists this will be an excellent new 
release, if they are willing and able to accept Gnome 3; the same is 
probably true of those who are new to Fedora but at least have supported 
hardware."

---- Fedora 15 – Bringing You The Latest In Linux ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] an article on Fedora 15's release from 
makeuseof.com:

"It’s another great day in the world of Linux. Fedora 15 was finally 
released two days ago, and this new release brings a massive amount of 
changes compared to Fedora 14. In fact, there’s so many changes that a 
lot of them can’t fit into this article. However, the major features 
that have changed are too important to leave out, that impact users in a 
very obvious way."

---- Linux Fans Say Fedora 15 Is Too Easy To Use ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] a short post highlighting features in Fedora 
15 from itportal.com:

"Apart from the new Gnome 3 desktop, another noticeable feature on the 
platform is the systemd configuration. Systemd replaces SysVinit and 
Upstart for system and session management and brings a faster boot 
experience. The Fedora Project has added a cloud based BoxGrinder 
appliance builder tool to the platform to aid developers. Fedora 15 also 
comes with Linux 2.6.38, the SystemD configuration utility and a new 
firewall system. Fedora 15 will also come with a range of new 
applications including LibreOffice and Mozilla Firefox 4 so that it has 
greater out-of-the-box functionality."

---- GNOME 3 on Fedora 15 ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] a blog posting on the GNOME 3 experience in 
Fedora 15:

"I’ve just installed Fedora 15, and one of the things that surprised me 
was GNOME 3. I knew from the release notes that GNOME was coming to 
Fedora 15, but I didn’t bother looking at the details nor at the larger 
versions of screenshots. I knew that GNOME 3 was going to be better than 
the older versions, but never thought that it was this good."

---- Intel Sandy Bridge On Fedora 15 Is Decent (Phoronix.com) ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] a listing of features in Fedora 15:

"Fedora 15 had worked fine "out of the box" on this notebook, complete 
with the GNOME Shell and its Mutter compositing working without fault. 
Fedora 15 is using Linux 2.6.38 and Mesa 7.11-devel, with various 
back-ports by Red Hat's engineers. Our usual platter of OpenGL Linux 
tests had also run fine on a stock Fedora 15 installation on this Sandy 
Bridge hardware without lock-ups or other problems like we have on other 
distributions"

---- Five must have Gnome shell extensions for Fedora 15 ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] a short posting offering some suggestions 
for GNOME panel widgets to add:

"The weather is an important part of our life and I like to keep an eye 
on the weather conditions. There is an extension which helps you to have 
a weather notification on the panel itself. This extension adds a 
notification and a menu next to the dateNtime menu at the center of the 
panel. This is a rather new extension and still have some rough edge to it."

---- Guest session and user management on Fedora 15 (linuxbsdos.com) ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] a posting on user management in Fedora 15:

"User management on Fedora 15 is just as easy as on any other 
distribution or operating system. And the graphical user management 
tools (there are two) are very intuitive to use. There are two types of 
user accounts on Fedora 15 – Standard and Administrator. The 
Administrator has root or super user privileges. During installation, 
the user created may be added to the Administrators group. A user in 
this group can execute all commands using sudo"

---- Fedora 15 Xfce review (linuxbsdos.com) ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] another posting from linuxbsdos.com on the 
Xfce spin for Fedora 15:

"This article presents a review of the Xfce spin, and it is the first 
for this edition of Fedora on this site. Fedora 15 sports several new 
features. Some are not particularly relevant to a desktop user, but 
others are. Those will be noted in the appropriate sections of this review."

---- Fedora (KDE) System Spotted Running Maya 3D on 'Doctor Who 
Confidential' ----

Rahul Sundaram forwarded[1] an article noting Fedora trainspotting in an 
upcoming 'Doctor Who Confidential' episode:

"A System running Fedora with KDE SC 4 was spotted on 'Doctor Who 
Confidential' episode broadcast this Saturday in UK. It is great to see 
that large organizations like BBC are using Linux systems for 
production. The footage starts at 32:00 where Animation supervisor Neil 
Roche is talking about animation effects showing us a system running 
Fedora."

---- Linux Mint 11 and Fedora 15: In One Week, Two Gems Debut ----

Kara Schiltz forwarded[1]:

"As promised previously 
<http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/228298/five_linux_distributions_get_a_fresh_boost.html>, 
the final release of Fedora 15 launched on Tuesday to a global audience 
of fans eager to check out its implementation of the GNOME 3 desktop.

Linux desktops are a particularly critical subject, of course, now that 
the default Unity[2]desktop in Ubuntu 11.04 "Natty Narwhal" has proven 
so controversial[3], and the Fedora team announced [4] that it was 
abandoning its own Unity efforts some time ago. GNOME 3 may be slightly 
less controversial, but it's still generating a lot of discussion."

Legal team[3][4].

--- Autotranslate Feature Disabled for Fedora Modules on Transifex ---

The Autotranslate feature on transifex.net has been disabled for Fedora 
modules in view of a possible conflict with the Terms of Usage of the 
Google Translated API that was being used for the feature[1].

--- Fedora Documentation and Websites missing for F15 ---

A number of Fedora Documentation modules[1] and Fedora Websites[2] 
modules were not available for translation for Fedora 15 as they could 
not be migrated to transifex.net before the release. However, 
translation can be continued for some of these modules which are being 
gradually migrated by the writers to transifex.net.
