Great, I'll have a dig through when I can and hopefully get a few bugs
squished along the way.
My name is Mike and I'm a sysadmin based in the UK. I work mainly with
RHEL, TRU64 and AIX systems professionally but have a few Fedora boxes at
home that I experiment with generally to save me trashing any of the
corporate systems :) . I moved into administration about 5 years ago from a
development background and so feel quite comfortable playing around with
code and generally scripting too. I started as a C developer and worked
with a few flavours of assembly but these days mostly lurk around Perl. I
understand that Python plays a big part in the Fedora project and so would
really like to learn a bit more about it. If there is any way I can help
and hopefully at the same time pick up a few new skills that would be
excellent but at the end of the day I'd really just like the chance to
contribute something of value to the project wherever I can.
Hopefully speak to you all soon
My name is Balaji and i live in chennai which is a city in India. i am
a software developer working for a private firm in chennai. I ve been
contribtuting to fedora as a member of the bug-triage team, Testing
packages from the bodhi repository, the Docs team(garderning and wiki
editing) and also as one of the Fedora-Ambassadors for chennai. Though
i must also admit honestly that the past few months were so hectic
that i couldn't contribute much for fedora other than servicing the
DVD requests and acknowledging them. I have again started off my
contributions to fedora and on the verge of the Fedora 10 release as
well as the planning for F11 release it would be a good time to enter
this. I would like to be part of the infrastructure team by testing
few stuff like bodhi,koji etc using some virtualization stuff and
ofcourse starting to solve trivial bugs in those allied tools as it
would help me to learn python more better though i know little bit of
I am really excited to be part of this team and hope i have a good and
challenging time with you all.

I have managed to get a bit of free time to create some simple rules
which would be suitable for the web servers which we are currently
running. I have wrote
some generic rules which should be compatible with all the web
servers. However, we could
write rules which are much stricter for the web applications that are
hosted off the web servers.
Let me know what people think about the rules that I have attached.
Just a note, the final rule should point to maybe a security notice...
it would currently just redirect users
When proxy5 got added, the IP didn't get added to Mediawiki which meant

Last two patches fix it, and the first is just to fix a weird thing in

The attached patch will allow the audit system to utilize 100mb for its
logs, as opposed to 20mb. Due to the sheer number of SELinux denials
that we're hitting on bastion (which will be resolved after a reboot,
and my patches from the previous mail), bastion is only storing 1-2 days
worth of audit logs.
This patch will only effect bastion, as it is currently the only machine
that is configured with 'include prelude::sensor::audisp'
In order to push out the first round of Fedora 10 updates, a few changes
need to be made in the infrastructure.
1) add the 10 release to fedora-updates-push in puppet
2) Update bodhi with 10 mash configs
Can I get a few +1s on this?
Fedora -- Freedom² is a feature!
