I'd like to start preparing for the releng1->releng2 move, and begin
testing bodhi + mash + TG on RHEL5.
This entails turning on the releng2 guest which lives on xen2. This
guest has been down for a while now, and could possibly break something by
coming back up.
Anyone against this, or think it is a Bad Idea ?
Jeff Sheltren has an email address for bugzilla that's different from
his fas account email. I'd like to add a patch to our python-fedora
that adds the mapping from his account to the new email.
This is very low impact as it's just adding an entry to a dict in
In the future, this will be stored in the fas2 database but that will be
something to get working after the change freeze.
Can I get a +1?
I've not been active in Fedora development, but hope to be able to
in near future. However, Fedora have always been my favorite distro, so I
the current development with great interest.
I've installed ubuntu and fedora 9 RC to compare how they handled the ATI
Radeon HD 3870
(that I've installed on my machine), with the following issues:
1. As ubuntu completes it's installation, and prepares to shutdown, the
initial Radeon driver
(I guess it is the open source) displays green vertical lines on the monitor
and the machine freezes.
I can however restart the machine (reset) and enter the desktop. The freezes
continues each time I
want to shutdown. When I install the propriety driver, the machine works
fine (no more green vertical lines).
2. As Fedora 9 RC has almost completed the installation, the monitor again
displays green vertical lines
(as in the ubuntu case), but the installation can not recover from the
state, so the installation fails!
Another issue with ubuntu is the "white screen of death", that is, when you
kick in compiz-fusion
with some desktop effects and then restart x-server, the user is greeted
with a white screen and can
actually not do a thing (besides either restore x or reinstall the distro).
The compiz-fusion comes in
as default in ubuntu. Now, some seems to think it is an issue with nvidia,
but actually, some searches
on google reveals that "white screen" is present with different types of gfx
cards (I had it on my machine
with ATI), so I think it is a compiz-fusion related issue. Since I could not
continue from the installation
with current fedora, I could not try the issue.

The machine at bu is all setup, kickstarted, puppetized and the data
from archives.fp.o has been xferred to it. I'd like to get a +1 to the
1. cname archives.fp.o -> archive.fp.o
2. delete all the archives.fp.o stuff in puppet
3. figure out where to get the rest of the data from for fc2,3,4,5,6,
etc and put it over there.
the risk is extremely low here b/c, well, this is not a critical server.
I only speak for me.
I'm just a senior high school student studying in China, and now I want
to participate in the Fedora Project. As I said in the subject, I didn't
know how to start. I had experiences with C/C++/Pascal console
programming. Is this enough? Also I want to learn to develop with GNOME.
How to start? Thanks for helping me.
A team of folks took videos of various talks at Linux Fest Northwest.
They want to offer direct downloads as an alternative to the flash based
streams available at ustream.tv. I have tentatively offered (with
stated caveat that Infrastructure had to approve) hosting space on the/a
torrent server for these videos.
I don't yet have an estimate on the total size, but there are 12~
videos, all somewhere around an hour in length. It may be a while yet
before they're all re-encoded into our preferred format (.ogg) but I
wanted to get the ball rolling here.
Is this something Fedora (Infrastructure) would be willing to provide?

My name is Reggie Buckner. I want to be a Unix Engineer. I am currently a college student working on a Bachelor Degree.
I do know Unix as a power user/ admin fairly well. I used Solaris, BSD, MAC OS X, Suse, Fedora (4, 6, 7). I want to work more on infrastructure things especially anything involving server admin or networking. I know routing and switching as well. Please let me know how I can contribute. I would like a mentor too if I could get it. I live in San Antonio, TX

I've just committed this change to the fas git repo that fixes a change
in the dump format from fas1 to fas2. In fas1, the role_type was
accurate when dumped from the account system. In fas2, role_type was
always "user" even if the person was a sponsor or administrator.
I'd like to have this applied to the production FAS so that the Package
Status Scripts can be run again.
* Correct information which has been inaccurate since migration to FAS2.
* No longer check if the user is in the group their trying to dump as
they can retrieve the information by retrieving the list of all users
* Speed up dumping when a groupname is specified (probably
significantly on app5) by making a single database query per call
instead of one db query per user in the group.
* FAS is a major service. Many third-party apps consume this
particular page as it's an easy way for them to get username=>email
* This adds a field to the data as retrieved via json. It adds a
field for role_type of the user to each record.
* The format of the page isn't changing, just the accuracy of one of
* The patch is very small and limited to this single method and one
line in its template.
* Tested when group name is unspecified, group name is specified, and
whether retrieving json or plain text.
* Allows Package Status Scripts to run once again
