It's been six months, and like clockwork, we release Fedora 30 today!
Thank you to the thousands of people who worked to bring this release
together. Fedora doesn't happen by magic: it happens because of you!

We wanted to get the word out on the mailing lists that AskFedora has
now moved to Discourse at https://askbeta.fedoraproject.org. In the next
few days, https://ask.fedoraproject.org will also begin to point here.
Our older askbot instance is now in read-only mode, and will be moved to
We have tried to time this change with the F30 release so that users
installing or upgrading to our newest offering also get to use the shiny
You can read more about the move on this CommBlog post:
If you can please find some time to regularly check AskFedora to
interact with users there, that would be very helpful. We're supporting
multiple languages to make the site more accessible to our global
community and userbase. We're also focussing on community discussion and
contribution on the new forum with the hope that it'll help convert
users into contributors.
A Fedora Magazine post on this change is in review, and will announce it
to the wider audience outside the Fedora community.

In the past, src.fedoraproject.org git repositories have been accessable
via the pagure interface or via the cgit web interface.
We have been planning some changes to the way the backend git
repositories are stored on src.fedoraproject.org: from local bare repos
to repoSpanner clustered and distributed repositories. This will
allow multiple frontends for that data, including sharing them with
This change however meant that cgit could no longer have access to
the bare git repositories and thus would no longer work. Please
adjust any workflows you may have that use cgit to use the
main pagure interface.
I'm happy to announce that you can now use https to push commits
to src.fedoraproject.org. You will need to use 'fedpkg clone -a'
and have a session with a running browser to do the initial
authentication, but after that everything should be transparent.
Users who are not part of the 'packager' group can now use
this to push to forks of projects to create pull requests.
Please see https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Infrastructure/HTTPS-commits
for more details.
We hope this support will allow more community members to
contribute along with allowing more flexibility to maintainers
who don't always have SSH access.
