If you’ve never contributed to Fedora before, this is a perfect way to get started. On Wednesday, March 10, we’ll test Fedora IoT.

Test Week: Internationalization (i18n) features for Fedora 34

All this week, we will be testing internationalization (i18n) features in Fedora 34. Those are as follows:

  • kasumi-unicode: — kasumi-unicode will be generated newly with kasumi.spec in kasumi project.
  • ibus-anthy for default Japanese IME:— The current default Japanese IME(input method engine) is ibus-kkc and the default is going to change to ibus-anthy to develop Japanese IME more effectively.
  • ibus-m17n as default Sinhala IME :— The current default input method for Sinhala is ibus-sayura. This should change to the ibus-m17n input method “m17n:si:sayura – sayura (m17n)”
  • ibus-unikey as default Vietnamese IME :— This recommended default input method for Vietnamese will be changed from ibus-bogo to ibus-unikey
  • EnableHarfBuzzInFreeType :— Goal of this feature is to enable usage of HarfBuzz in FreeType to improve hinting of glyphs of languages which needs more complicated text shaping.
  • IBus 1.5.24 :— IBus will provide GTK4 IM module and enhance ibus-setup to search input method names more easily.

Fedora Code of Conduct Report 2020

The Fedora Project’s Code of Conduct and reports are managed by the Fedora Project Leader (FPL), Matthew Miller, and the Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator (FCAIC), Marie Nordin, as well as the Red Hat legal team, when appropriate.

In 2020 we had more than two times the number of CoC reports when compared to 2019. Due to dedicating a lot of time and effort to these situations, we spent a significant amount of time trying to understand why this was happening at these rates. We came up with a couple of theories.

A sneak peek at Fedora Zine

So my Outreachy internship is winding to a close, as is the creation of the first-ever edition of our very own Fedora Zine!

It has been a crazy journey so far and I have thoroughly enjoyed working on this awesome project, especially getting to see and work with all of these great submissions from the community. I have learned so much; from how to balance my design visually, how to pair fonts and use other typographic effects, how to use guides for a perfectly aligned design and also that you should read your printing specs very, very carefully before getting to work on a project☺. A huge thank you goes to my mentor, Marie Nordin, who has been incredibly helpful in guiding me through this whole process!

Now is the time for me to give you all a sneak-peek at what we have been working on for the past two and a half months.

New “How Do You Fedora” video series to interview members of the community

A common answer to the question “What’s your favorite part about Fedora?” is often “the community”. Well, what’s so special about it?

The Fedora community shares the common values of the “Four Foundations”: Freedom, Friends, Features and First. Beyond that, although there are many great minds, not all of them think alike! Everyone contributes different approaches to problems, interesting ideas, and diverse perspectives. There is a place in Fedora for anyone who wants to help. 

That’s why we’re launching a new video series on the Fedora Youtube channel profiling some of Fedora’s various contributors and how they use Fedora. The goal is to get to know some community members better, especially in a time where in-person community events might not be practical.
