This perplexing to me. In my %post section, I tried both writing
"GRUB_TIMEOUT=0" to /etc/default/grub and using sed to replace "set
timeout=5" in grub2.cfg. I even put a call to grub2-mkconfig to re-write the
config file after doing those things.
But on boot, grub.cfg file always contains timeout=5. Why / how is this
I'm using appliance-creator, in case that's doing anything silly.

one of the updates I am preparing is supposed to replace some of the
folders with symlinks. Unfortunately, this leads to rpm cpio: rename
errors upon an update attempt. Is there a standard way of dealing with this?
the Samba Team has announced  that it will remove SWAT from the Samba
Suite. SWAT is unmaintained and has the most security bugs.
I plan to remove the samba-swat subpackage in Fedora 18, 19 and rawhide as
soon as it gets removed from the current Samba development tree.

It looks like all of the gnome games are still at v3.6.1 in Fedora 19...
I guess because they were split into multiple packages upstream. I guess
it's too late to get these into F19 since they are basically new
packages now, but I wanted to give a heads-up since they're still at
v3.6.1 in rawhide as well.
>From time to time, when setting up virtual machines for testing, I miss a
fast way to install the minimal set of packages which allows me to boot
into the desktop of a desktop environment. Currently, I do a minimal
install, then install some core component, i.e. gnome-shell, and then hunt
the logs to find out which other packages are missing.
So, what about creating groups for the various desktop environments which
pull in basesystem + xorg + mesa drivers + displaymanager + bare desktop
Advantages I see are:
* Users can quickly set up test environments for various desktop
* It would make side-by-side installation of desktop environments more
* It might help considering enabling the yum option
"clean_requirements_on_remove=1" by default, since even if something goes
wrong, the user will not end up with a missing desktop next time he or she
* It might help fixing some package dependencies
The Fedora Packaging Committee has one open seat and is accepting
submissions from interested candidates to serve on the FPC.
The FPC would like to thank Rex Dieter for his service, as he is
stepping down after several years.
This position involves not only reviewing Packaging Guideline drafts
submitted to the FPC for consideration, but also rewriting drafts
(sometimes from scratch) to resolve the issue in a more acceptable
fashion. Additionally, the FPC reviews bundling exceptions (and UID/GID
soft static assignment). The FPC meets on IRC weekly, Wednesdays at 1600
UTC, for approximately an hour. FPC members serve for as long as they
are willing, there are currently no term limits. All decisions are voted
on using a +1 (for), 0 (abstain), and -1 (against) mechanism, and all
decisions must be approved by a majority (+5). FPC Meetings do not
happen if quorum (5) is not present.
Candidates who are interested should provide the following details to
the FPC for consideration, by emailing it directly to me
(tcallawa(a)redhat.com). The FPC will consider all candidates, but
strongly prefers candidates who have extensive experience packaging in
Fedora. We will accept applications for the next week (deadline
Wednesday Apr 24, 2013).
