A couple of queries about the F10 Beta live CD and installing to HDD from it.
Firstly is it possible to enable ext4 from the LiveCD install?
Secondly on an eeePC 901 the partitioning tool layout is a bit messed
up. I took a screen shot of it to file as a bug and saved it to the
"USB Stick" which was the device from which I had booted the LiveCD
but it didn't seem to stick around when I put the stick into another
machine to log the bug.
Other than that it looks good.... but I knew that already :-)
This shouldn't be a rebuild the world kind of update, but 2.5.2 has
just built for rawhide and it isn't a trivial update (some of our
patches had to be altered etc.) ... so there's some room for weirdness,
so if you see anything please BZ etc.
For the impatient the koji build was:

as some of you have already noticed, fever spammed bugzilla a bit,
submitting notification about a new version of a package which has
been already submitted either long time ago or a few minutes before.
This was caused by a fundamental bug in fever's code which now should
be fixed; it's related to fever's new email address due to
inactiveness of the previous one.
I would like to strongly apologize everyone who needed to or will need
to clean the trash fever caused.
It should never happen again.
I've updated Zabbix in Rawhide to the recently released version 1.6.
It's a fairly significant upgrade so I'm going to wait a while before
pushing it to F-9, F-8, or EL-5.

I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the
terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve
them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and
unfairness of the universe."

You want something to be discussed? Send a note to the list in reply to
this mail and I'll add it to the schedule. You can also propose topics
in the meeting while it is in the "Free discussion around Fedora" phase.

I'm sorry if this is off-topic. If someone could point me to the right
forum I'd be happy to post this there.
Anyways, my name is Chris Desjardins and I am Ph.D. student at the
University of Minnesota and I'm interested in computerized adaptive
testing/software. For my dissertation, I'm interested in the use of
Bayesian approaches in item response theory. My reason for posting to
this list is that I am interested in developing a math software program,
primarily geared towards the XO laptops, that would use algorithms that
I develop to be adaptive and essentially create an artificial
intelligence where the software learns to adapt more to the student and
gives them more individualized instruction with the hope that this would
increase student achievement.
Now I can't really program but I'd like to develop a program in
python/GTK with an open source license so that it could be available for
students that need the most help with mathematics and could be easily
altered to adapt to different environments (cultures, languages, etc).
I was curious if anyone out here would be interested in helping me with
some of the programming. This project is in it's infancy.
Thanks and I'm sorry if this is way off-topic.
