My name is Alex Shepard. I've been lurking for a few weeks, but I'd
like to pitch in and help out if I can find something to work on.
I'm 33, work for a startup called Eye-Fi ih the US (in the bay area),
doing systems infrastructure and development. I'm pretty good at
generic linux web sysadmin stuff, network engineering, systems
monitoring (esp nagios & cacti). I'm also a halfway decent coder...
variants and python.
I wouldn't mind helping out really anywhere. My strengths are
probably in web/hosted/tools/devel, but if I had to pick I'm mostly
curious about how the FC team manages releases, so sysadmin-releng and
sysadmin-build sound like fun.
I'll try to drop in at the next irc meeting and say hi.
My name is Finnur Örn Guðmundsson. I live in the Reykjavik area
(Hafnarfjordur), Iceland. I am 25 year old.
I work as a Sysadmin at TM Software, a large ASP company here in Iceland.
My job roles are: Deploying and managing SAN networks & storage systems
for us and our customers, administering linux/unix machines (of
course!), core services (DNS/NTP etc), deploying/debugging hardware (x86
servers mostly) and loads of other stuff. We use RHEL/CentOS as our
distro of choice.
I have been watching this mailing list for a while and would like to
contribute something back to the Fedora community in some way (Be it
packaging, documentation, sysadmin stuff or anything else).
Interests include *NIX, clustering (HA), storage related stuff and more.
I am a RHCA (verify it! 804005656115566).
My programming/scripting skills stink but i am working on that ....
Catch you all on the next meeting.
I'll hang out in #fedora-admin as finnzi
My name is Timothy andI am a 23 years old who lives in the Reno/Tahoe
area. I have been using linux/unix in some fashion for the past 4 years,
from setting up a webserver to host websites for friends to my current day
job of administering red hat 3/4/5 servers for a large online retail
company. I am however a networking junkie at heart and spend a fair amount
of time working with cisco devices. I currently have my ccna and am activly
pursuing my ccnp. I started programming with php and have since moved on to
learning python... however I am not as skilled in it as I would like but am
working on it. Anything else anyone wants to know just ask.
Thanks for your time everyone,
I'm sending this on behalf of Dave Lawrence and the bugzilla team at Red
Hat. Fedora uses this instance of bugilla too.
Please forward this on to people or groups I missed.
The Red Hat Bugzilla team is happy to announce that the release of the
next version of Red Hat Bugzilla will occur on July 26th, 2008. The next
version will be based on the upcoming upstream 3.2 code base soon to be
For previewing the next release please go to:
We encourage everyone to please go to the above site and provide any
final testing and feedback where possible. Please verify that the
features you have come to reply on day to day in our current Bugzilla
are still available and working properly. Please use the new UI and make
sure that you can accomplish the same tasks. Do not worry about making
changes, this is a test snapshot and is not live data. Also emails will
not be sent for changes so do what you like. Also please make sure your
stored queries/reports/whines still work and display as expected.
Some notable changes since 2.18:
Ajax optimizations on searching and displaying bug
Improved needinfo actor support
Changed guided bug entry
XMLRPC API: New API plus compatibility with old API. (please verify your
scripts that use XMLRPC against the test system before the release date)
There are numerous other changes behind the scenes that we haven't
listed. The goal is to make sure that functionality that people have
come to expect in 2.18 is possible in the new system.
There are also numerous new features/fixes that are part of the upcoming
3.2 release provided by the upstream Bugzilla community. For more
detailed information on what has changed since the last release, check
out the Release Notes.
We have done extensive work at laying out what we feel the requirements
are to maintain feature parity with our current system as well as
compiled a list of feature enhancements that people would like to see in
the next release. Our goal is to deliver a working bugzilla with the
bare essential requirements similar to what is currently being used in
our current 2.18 system. After that we will begin work on enhancements
as time and resources permit. To view the final release requirements
list please refer to our Bugzilla 3 Tracking bug at
Please file any enhancement requests or bug reports in our current
Bugzilla system at bugzilla.redhat.com. File them under the Bugzilla
product and relevant component with the version 3.2. Also send questions
to bugzilla-owner(a)redhat.com. With everyone's help we can make this a

So I'm working to get amber packaged and deployable as a wsgi app so I
can run a demo on publictest10. I've made pretty fair progress getting
things up and running (on my local system first to make sure it works),
but I've run into an issue.
For the setup, I'm basically ripping off the way Ricky Zhou set up fas
wholesale. I have an amber.conf file in /etc/httpd/conf.d, which
refers to an amber.wsgi file. All of that seems to work fine. The
problem happens when I try to connect. I get a 500 error with the
following in httpd's error log:
Unable to write to session file /var/www/.fedora_session: [Errno 13]
Permission denied: '/var/www/.fedora_session'
Well, it turns out that this is because my app is using jsonfas, which
uses fedora.client.BaseClient. In fedora/client/__init__.py, I find:
SESSION_FILE = path.join(path.expanduser('~'), '.fedora_session')
Which explains the error - my app is running under apache, and
while /var/www is apache's homedir, apache can't write to that
So, as anyone else worked around this with another turbogears app
running under wsgi and using jsonfas? Since turbogears and fas are
both pretty common, it seems likely that someone here has already dealt
