Hi folks! A lot of people will still be winding down from holidays,
and there's nothing major on the agenda so far as I'm aware, so
proposing we cancel tomorrow's meeting. If anyone has anything that
needs urgent discussion, please reply to this mail and we can arrange
for the meeting to go ahead, otherwise let's take a break and enjoy
more breakfast / coffee / beer (delete as appropriate :>) Thanks

I with my friend (Vitaly Sulimov) developed easy application for
Android to use Fedora pastebin.
I often using my android device to do my work (help people in
irc/jabber, etc.) and I need send some code from phone. This is not
useful to do via web browser (I'm using FF).
So, we created app where you can choose language, paste/write code and
press send. If all ok - your clipboard will contain URL.
Also, I developed (just for fun) Gtk+ client for Linux using GLib,
Soup, etc. With async and etc (only one text will be uploaded at the
time, other will be cancel).
Hope you will find this apps or source code useful. Patches are welcome ;)
Who else thinks that this part of texlive-base's %preinstall is not really
such a hot idea:
for i in `find /home/*/.texlive* -type d -prune`; do
find $i -name *.fmt -type f | xargs rm -f > /dev/null 2>&1
I was wanting to play around with F2FS about 6 months ago, found it wasn't
yet included in the F20 kernel (even though Fedora packages f2fs-tools?).
I did a quick search and found some comments basically saying it was under
heavy development, stay away, etc. etc. so I kinda forgot about it.
Today I see an article on Phoronix:
which wonders why Fedora doesn't ship it. Then, it says Ubuntu and other
distributions are shipping it? I then find out that the Nexus 9 tablet
uses it as its default file system...
So, Ubuntu and other distributions ship it... Google is using it for their
latest tablets, yet Fedora says it isn't ready to ship?
Something isn't right. I thought Fedora was suppose to be on the leading
edge. Is this some sort of political thing with Redhat/Samsung?
Sshd(8) daemon by default allows remote users to login as root.
1. Is that really necessary?
2. Lot of users use their systems as root, without even creating a non-root user.
Such practices need to be discouraged, not allowing remote root login could be
useful in that.
Does it make sense to disable remote root login by default? If so, do we need to just report it to the maintainer or it would be treated as a feature?
