Hi, I found another change that needs to be made to the "How to Build
a Netboot Server, Part 2" article.
If an editor can insert the following 3 lines immediately after the "#
sed -i 's/nfs/iscsi/' /etc/dracut.conf.d/netboot.conf" line, it will
improve the netboot client's ability to re-establish its iscsi
connection when it goes down (as can happen if the user lets the
system go into power-save mode):
# sed -i '/^node.conn\[0\].timeo.noop_out_interval /s/=.*$/= 0/'
# sed -i '/^node.conn\[0\].timeo.noop_out_timeout /s/=.*$/= 0/'
# sed -i '/^node.session.timeo.replacement_timeout /s/=.*$/= 86400/'
The timeout values used above are the recommended values to use when
running an iscsi root as explained in section 8.2 of
Also, "Ipdate" should be "Update".
During yesterday's meeting we discussed the VPN article currently in the Pitch queue. It seemed a little like paid promotion / spam to Paul and I, and I said I'd look in to it.
I can't find the author's contact details on FAS in the magazine group, but I did find his LinkedIn profile, in which he shows he is a PR Consultant writing such articles to promote clients.
In order to message him there, I need a premium account, which I don't have.
Anyway, I think it's pretty clear the article wasn't written with the best intentions but a similar article without the promotion might have some merit.
I'll put in a pitch ahead of next week's meeting with a germ of an idea and we'll go from there, if agreed by all?

Turns out I made a mistake in the Buildah classroom post. It should be
Tuesday, 15th, not Thursday :(. Could someone correct it whenever

Hello everyone. My name is Akarshan Biswas. I am working on maintaining VAAPI patch for chromium on Fedora and recently Tom Callaway decided to merge it to rawhide. I was suggested by Justin and Ben Cotton to write an announcement post for this and I have written a draft which contains some history, comparison and announcement. I am new to writing posts and this is probably my first post in Fedora Magazine.
Draft URL: https://fedoramagazine.org/?p=23894
Continuing with the classroom series, here is a draft for the Fedora Silverblue classroom session that is scheduled for Thursday, February 7th 2019. Could it also be reviewed, improved, and scheduled for publishing 5--6 days before the session( @ around first week of February)?
Preview Link : https://fedoramagazine.org/?p=24312&preview=true ( Wordpress decided to update itself just before I started writing this email and now this draft's public preview link is not working. But I guess reviewers, moderators will be able to access the preview link that I mentioned in this mail. If in case it doesn't, please inform me. )
We will like to keep trying to submit the rest of the classroom announcements in advance as well.
Happy New Year everyone!
It wasn't the busiest meeting today — many of us are probably still
enjoying the holidays — so I skipped it.
We still need to figure out our publishing schedule, though. There are two
in Pending Review both of which look really good:
* Managing dotfiles with rcm — needs an image and could go out Friday
* Buildah Classroom article — this one could go out next Wednesday
And for Monday, I think could get the VAAPI article ready. That would cover
us for this period.
@ryan if you're around, will you have time to do two cover images? (for the
rcm and VAAPI articles)
