I'm now going to be spending some time actually working on some
packages, so here's a proper introduction...

5. Your goals in the Fedora Project
* Which packages do you want to see published?
Right now I am working on packages for the enlightenment
window manager. I also intend to get some useful Perl modules
* Do you want to do QA?
Definitely for packages I have an interest in.
* Anything else special?
I have an interest in desktop integration work, though how much
time I have available to code on this will vary.
6. Historical qualifications
* What other projects have you worked on in the past?
No major contributions to anything that big, but many small
patches all over the shop from the Linux kernel to Perl modules.
I am currently rewriting ppstats (a Perl script to create statistics
from the log files of the distributed.net personal proxy).
* What computer languages and other skills do you know?
Recently I've mainly been using TCL, Perl, shell scripting, along
HTML/CSS, and databases.
* Why should we trust you?
Trust is built up over time. Read my public postings (here and
elsewhere). Look at my code. Observe my contributions. Finally,
come and meet me in person! 
7. GPG KEYID and fingerprint

 Is anyone interested in a Fedora developers/contributors social
gathering in central London? Nothing too formal, just put faces to
names, drink some beer, enjoy the sun (once this rain clears up), chat
about our favourite head gear, and perhaps some do some key signing?

as i remember correctly, there was such a discussion 5 or 6 month ago.
My goal is to have a kickstart installation or a anaconda installation
where i can select a minimal Installation. And when i wrote minimal i
mean minimal ;-)
Is there a project which is working on this problem? Is there a manual
where i can read more about the comps file (Where the rpm's are defined
for installation of workstation, server etc)
I am very glad about any hint.

That was too easy! In may day we had to make our punchcards from buffalo
hides. (Usually while they were still on the buffalo.) And we only had
stone tools that we made by biting until they were sharp.
And our paper tape was made with real tapeworms!
And we were greatful!

The final freeze starts on May 7. You should plan to have all your
packages built by May 6 close-of-business. We're already in freeze-ish
mode - the difference will be that only critical bug fixes go in after the
It's the home stretch - almost done!
I keep committing atrocities in an attempt to learn from my mistakes.

Subject: URGENT: Naming conflict in Cyrus-IMAP 2.2 vs. leafnode 1.9

it has come to my attention today that version 2.2.3 of the Cyrus-IMAPd
package (announced 2004-01-15) has added a program and manual page
named "fetchnews" that were not present in previous official releases of
Cyrus-IMAPd such as 2.1.16 (2003-11-20).
I am the current maintainer of the "leafnode" NNTP package
that has been using a program and manual page named "fetchnews" since
the release of leafnode 1.9.3 on 1999-07-15 under the aegis of the
previous maintainer, Cornelius Krasel.
This naming conflict triggered a bug report against Fedora Linux, see
https://bugzilla.fedora.us/show_bug.cgi?id=1445 -- and I expect that
more naming conflicts show up as more distributors upgrade their
cyrus-imapd packages to 2.2. FreeBSD also has conflicting names in the
As leafnode 1.9 has been using the "fetchnews" name for almost five
years to date and has also been shipping with various distributions for
years, among them major and established ones such as Debian GNU/Linux,
FreeBSD, Mandrake Linux, NetBSD, OpenBSD and SuSE Linux, it appears
difficult to change the name in the middle of a leafnode stable series;
doing so would break existing configurations in those distributions, for
Given that Cyrus-IMAPd 2.2.3 has been released only this January, and
has not yet been adopted by all distributions (most are still shipping
Cyrus-IMAPd 2.1.N), renaming fetchnews to cyr_fetchnews would have
little impact _now_ but be a major inconvenience later.
Note that distributors HAVE TO take action, and to avoid every
distributor using their own name, causing confusion among our users,
let's address this from the top level.
Could you change your fetchnews program's name to cyr_fetchnews or
similar? I am offering to rename leafnode's fetchnews to something else
(leafnode-fetchnews, ln_fetchnews, to be determined) in the next major
version of leafnode, leafnode-2.0.0 (probably 2nd half 2004) in return.
I have marked the Subject "URGENT" because Fedora has scheduled a code
freeze for May 7th (next Friday), I'd hope that we can resolve the
problem before then.
Thank you in advance; I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
 The oldest public leafnode release that I am aware of is
leafnode-1.0.1, released 1996-11-04 by Arnd Gulbrandsen, Trolltech,
Just installed Fedora Core 2 test 3 and have had a couple of issues,
some I was able to resolve others not. The hardware used to test is a
Dell Lattitude c840 laptop:
Intel P4 2.0ghz
32MB Nvidia Geforce 4 video
3com 10/100 NIC & built-in Wireless 802.11b Minicard
1600x1200 resolution screen
Here are the immediate problems and what fixed some of them:
1. X11 did not configure properly and only gave me a choice of
800x600 and 640x480. Opon examination of the config file I foumd
the settings to be correct for everything but the resolution and
the vert and horiz rates were commentout in the monitor section.
Adding the additional resolutions and uncommenting the rates
enables X11 to function properly again.
2. When booting I am always to kicked into the detail mode by the
IA32 microcode update. Unresolved.
3. PCMCIA does not detect my sockets or cards, thus no wireless.
All the above work perfectly in Core 1 but not in 2. Any help on
resolving my PCMCIA problem would be great. Great job by the way , it
looks to be really coming around for Core 2.
