It looks like the TurboMail author is MIA, and their trac seems to be riddled
with spam. Upstream could definitely use some help with things.
It's important that we make sure this project does not get neglected, as
we extensively use it for various pieces of infrastructure that we have
deployed (bodhi, pkgdb, etc).
Thankfully, Felix will be helping to improve TurboMail's error handling in the
near future; so if anyone is interested in helping out -- drop him a

Would it be possible to have mirrorlist take arch/release/type
parameters as well? (Where type is something like dvd, live, kde live,
and maybe even rescuecd, diskboot, etc.) This way, we could have a
convenient download form redirecting to the mirrors at get-fedora.html.
At F8 development freeze when mass CVS branching is happening, everyone
will have to stop working on packages for a short while. During this
time we should also rename cvsextras to packager. This should reduce
We will need to prepare the necessary changes to infrastructure scripts
to handle this transition. Toshio has agreed to lead script prep for
A week ago (last Tuesday) I created a Fedora account, following the
user id "ghosler"
I have not been able to log into this account, yet.
Might I know is there is something I did wrong, or is my account still
awaiting for the approval ?
Thank you and best rgds,

I've just join the Fedora Project so I want to tell something about
My name is Igor. I live in Kharkov, Ukraine (so I beg pardon for my
English :) ) and I'm a student of Kharkov national university of

implementation of it's elements in modern software.

Hi my name is Shaun Kluzek
I have over twenty years programming experience. started programming in Apple
Basic at the age of 11,The first linux system i used was RedHat back in about
1999,i now program mainly in C, and spend a reasonable time with C++, Java
I also write applications for embedded devices like my mobile phone.
On my paranoid side i'm currently running a Fedora/Gentoo dual boot, dual
monitor, dual cpu system. The gentoo machine runs nine encrypted partitions
including the root partition. The system also employs port knocking for added
security for my sshd with a full initrd written by myself to map the
encrypted root before pivoting to a mapped file system.
Professionally my duties range from software development, system
administration to full security audits .I prefer to spend most of my time at
the command line, and only use the GUI to write GUI applications and to
browse the web. I am really keen to give back to the Linux/Fedora community
and have quite a bit of time to do so. If anyone wants to get back to me
about some help with a project i will be more than happy to help out.
