Outreachy with Fedora, Fall 2016

What is Outreachy?

GNOME Outreachy is a global program that offers historically underrepresented people of gender and race stipends to write code for several participating FOSS projects . Inspired by Google Summer Of Code, Outreachy offers participants hands-on internships for contributing to open source projects.

In 2016, the Outreachy internship dates are from December 6, 2016 to March 6, 2017. Participants work remotely from home while getting guidance from an assigned mentor and collaborating within their project’s community.

Why open source and Fedora?

Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is software that gives the user the freedom to use, share, study, and improve it. FOSS contributors believe that this is the best way to develop software because it benefits society, creates a fun collaborative community around a project, and allows anyone to make creative changes that reach many people.

Fedora is participating in Outreachy 2016, with a goal to welcome underrepresented minorities to contribute to the project.  Fedora mentors Outreachy interns and helps them get a hands-on experience with developing for an open source project.

System CA certificate trust management review and planning meeting at DevConf

DevConf Fedora badge - System CA certificate trust management planning at DevConf 2016

System CA certificate trust management review and planning will happen at DevConf 2016 this year

The current system CA certificate trust store management tool as implemented by p11-kit supports only limited number of use-cases. We are trying to gather information from various people administering and developing for Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux on how it could be improved.

For this purpose we want to arrange an informal session during DevConf at Brno where we would discuss the current state of the implementation and gather input in the form of use-cases. These use-cases would be interesting to support with future development of p11-kit and additional tools.
