Is there any plan to build fedora with their own kernel ?
It's a 'must have', for some packages.
e.g. GLIBC: http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=blob_plain;f=sysdeps/unix/sysv/l...
A lot of features can't be used, because 2.6.18(3.5 years old)
is the base kernel.
The eternal glory and basking in the shite of the FLOSS gods' favour
waits for somebody who will be willing to repackage xorg-x11-fonts
according to the current font guidelines.
Unfortunately, I just don't want to pretend anymore, I will have a time
in next couple of months to do it, so I have gave up on that bug.
Please, step up somebody.
Thanks a lot,

Arriving fashionably late the Fedora Moblin spin is now here.
Its based on the Moblin 2.1 UX.
You can download it from its spin page here
With MeeGo 1.0 Netbook out I'm now reviewing what is required to get
the UX into Fedora. Details and updates regarding that will be posted
to the mini mailing list here
Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on the Fedora Project
Contributor Agreement (FPCA). We listened to your concerns, and have
amended the draft slightly.
Here are the key changes that we've made:
1) We removed undefined references to "free".
2) We replaced the term "electronic" with "digital".
3) Most importantly, we made several changes to explicitly address the
problem of reuse of default-licensed CC-BY-SA content within
GPL-covered works. (Basically, we added a GPL exception.)
The full text of the revised FPCA, along with a FAQ, can be found here:
Fedora Legal wishes to give the Fedora community a window of time for
discussion and review of the revised FPCA. Due to the fact that the
changes are relatively minor, and the original draft has been open for
comments for some time now, this second window is open until June 4,
2010 (2010-06-04). After that point, either another revised FPCA will be
released for review, or we will begin the process of phasing in the FPCA
and phasing out the Fedora ICLA.
Thanks in advance,
Tom "spot" Callaway, Fedora Legal
