Looking forward to this release. I haven't read the release notes yet,
however I have a few questions or comments. If "read the release notes"
is the best answer, please feel free to say so :).

* Atomic Improvements – Fedora 22 Atomic Host includes a number of
interesting improvements, including the Atomic command, updated
Docker, Kubernetes, Flannel, and rpm-ostree packages.

package (and up-to-date git repository) for building applications
with the base Fedora 22 Dockerfile and additional packages.
I'm interested in running SLC containers on Fedora hosts. Does any of
these packages facilitate that? What I understood so far is, it allows
me to run the latest Fedora containers in other places easily. Where
would one go looking for info for a need like mine?
* Cockpit will be compatible between OS releases -- Cockpit is a
server manager that makes it easy to administer your GNU/Linux
servers via a web browser.
- Easy to use. Cockpit is perfect for new sysadmins, allowing
them to easily perform simple tasks such as storage
administration, inspecting journals and starting and stopping
- No interference. Jumping between the terminal and the web
tool is no problem. A service started via Cockpit can be
stopped via the terminal. Likewise, if an error occurs in the
terminal, it can be seen in the Cockpit journal interface.
- Multi-server. You can monitor and administer several servers
at the same time.
I tried this a bit already, I like the convenience of having everything
aggregated together, however I'm a bit uneasy that a browser is the
interface. After all it is the most vulnerable application on most
machines. Are there other (safer) interfaces I can try, preferably on
the CLI? Am I being unreasonably paranoid? I'm really interested in
trying the multi-server bits. Any pointers?
* Better notifications.
details. And if you're a serious Terminal user, longer
jobs now notify you when they're done, so you can get on with
other work and pick up the results when you're ready.
Is this desktop agnostic? I use XFCE. I'm guessing it's some kind of

Collecting all the resources on RTD is a great initiative. Wonderful!
GNU Compiler Collection 5
Fedora 22 comes with GCC 5.1 as the primary compiler suite.
This question is probably off-topic here, but I'll ask anyway :-p. Does
this make a significant difference during development when I want my
projects to also compile with older GCC like 4.?
Fedora's FedUp utility enables an easy upgrade to Fedora 22 from
previous releases. See the FedUp page on the Fedora wiki for more
This question is not exactly about FedUp. I find it strange that no
release so far has supported yum (or dnf now) as one of the upgrade
methods. And yet, I have had the most reliable upgrade experiences with
it since F12 or so! Any reason why this is the case? I think it is the
method that allows for the shortest of downtimes.
Thanks for the release. Looking forward to trying it!
Open source is the future. It sets us free.
