Fedora Cloud Base Image has a new home!

When the Fedora Board (the precursor to the current Fedora Council) set up the three-edition strategy for Fedora, we chose three broad areas, and asked interested people in our contributor community to develop focused editions aimed at a target in each area. These were server, desktop, and emerging computing — resulting in Fedora Server, Fedora Workstation, and Fedora Cloud Base Image.

Fedora Docker Layered image build service now available

Announcing: Fedora Docker Layered Image Build Service is GO!

It is with great pleasure that the Fedora Project Announces the availability of the Fedora Docker Layered Image Build Service to the Fedora Contributor Community!

With this announcement we open the availability of the Docker Layered Image Build Service for the Docker Layered Images. The Fedora Cloud WG has been the primary maintainers of this project on GitHub. But now the service is available in dist-git as official components of Fedora. From there we will extend an invitation to all Fedora Contributors to maintain Docker Layered Image Containers for official release by the Fedora Project. Currently this effort is to enable the Fedora Cloud/Atomic Working Group goals of targeting Fedora Atomic Host as a primary deliverable to power the future of Cloud. This is also to enable the Fedora Modularity work be delivered as Containers in the future as Fedora becomes fundamentally more modular in nature.

Fedora Cloud FAD 2016 Report

The Fedora Cloud Working Group met on June 7 and 8 in Raleigh to work on deliverables for Fedora 25 and beyond. As it turns out, we had a really productive set of discussions and have some good ideas for the Cloud Working Group going forward.

Some of the discussions were around immediate action items, some were around ideas of where we’d like to go – and these will require additional discussion with the larger community. As a reminder, the working group tries to operate on a consensus model and with transparency as much as possible. This means major decisions are usually only taken after a discussion has been held on the cloud@lists.fedoraproject.org mailing list and have either gotten enough +1’s from members to pass, pass via lazy consensus, or get knocked down for one reason or another.

Here’s a quick sweep of major topics that came up over the two days!

Fedora Cloud FAD 2016

Fedora Cloud FAD 2016

Are you a Fedora contributor?
Do you love “The Cloud?”
Do you enjoy working with projects like Atomic, Vagrant, and Docker?

Then you should *totally* participate remotely in the Cloud Working Group’s Fedora Activity Day (FAD) in Raleigh, NC on June 7th and 8th! The Cloud Working Group will be making decisions, tackling tickets, and writing code to help with topics like automated testing, documentation, and increasing our public cloud provider footprint.

Be sure to check out the Cloud FAD wiki page, sign up as a remote attendee, and join us in #fedora-meeting-3 on Freenode during the event.

First update for Fedora Developer Portal

This article originally appeared on contributor Josef Strzibny’s personal blog.

Developer Portal updates

First update of what? If you haven’t notice it yet, we announced a new developer portal for Fedora some time ago. Today I released a first update with some new contributions that landed on our GitHub after the announcement. So what’s new?

With the help of the Fedora community we were able to merge two new language sections: Haskell and Mono. That means we are already covering the basics for ~11 language runtimes and compilers!

Apart from that this is mainly bugfix release fixing many typos, but some improvements are merged as well. One of those changes is for example suggesting using libvirt’s Polkit rules instead of those shipped by vagrant-libvirt-doc sub-package when configuring password-less access to libvirt domains via Vagrant.

Some of the pending contributions did not make it for this release, but the next ones might happen more often. Big thank you goes to all our new contributors! And if you haven’t submitted anything yet, perhaps now’s the time. 🙂
