Hi all --
My name is Jason Brooks and I work with Red Hat's Open Source Program
Office. Paul Frields asked me to look into migrating Fedora Magazine
to a WordPress instance on OSPO's WP Engine account.
I've set up an instance at https://fedoramag.wpengine.com and would
appreciate your feedback. You can reach the wp console via
Paul asked me about the schedule for WP Engine wordpress updates.
Their update process is outlined at
https://wpengine.com/support/wordpress-updates/, but the TLDR is that
when a new Wordpress version is released, WP Engine tests the update
and then pushes it out automatically, typically within a few weeks.
They send out a notification of the pending updates, and you can opt
to defer these updates, or to apply them more earlier. If a security
update is released, they push it out right away, and without the
option to defer. We host a few other sites on WPEngine, and the
updates process has been smooth.
WPEngine does not update plugins automatically, although they just
began a beta of a service that does handle this. I haven't tested that
Let me know if you have any questions or feedback.
This seems like a great idea to me. +1. I asked other editors to weigh
in as well. If you get at least one more +1, consider it approved and
go for it!

Hi Daniel, we received your earlier comment about rsync. Are you still
interested to write this article for the magazine?
If so, please follow these steps:
You can likely skip the account part, since I see you made a
placeholder on the Magazine already for the article. The editors
haven't seen a pitch yet, so you can skip to the pitch step.

Ryan (or anyone else who takes an editorial pass at my network bonding article),
It occurred to me this morning that I added myself to the `wheel`
group on my laptop a while ago so I was able to run the commands in my
post without sudo. But most readers will need that. Can you please
prefix the commands with sudo (or add another suitable indication that
the commands will need elevated privileges) as you prepare it for

I am apparently a bad person. Or at least WordPress's Jetpack seems to think so:
Your IP (126.96.36.199) has been flagged for potential security violations
Can someone please add my IP (above) to the whitelist? See
I'm not entirely sure why it's mad at me (although I have a theory).
Once I'm allowed to log in again, I'll enter my "Bond WiFi and
Ethernet for easier networking mobility" article.
