Introducing Contributor Stories

The Fedora Project community is a strong, caring community sharing the same Four Foundations: Freedom, Friends, Features, and First. Becoming friends is a natural consequence of our work as contributors, working together to advance free software. All of us have a good memory about someone or maybe a funny or inspirational moment with another contributor.

Contributor Stories are just that: the record of our best moments with our Fedora friends. The story can be about our work in Fedora or something personal or unique which you would like to share with the community. Contributor Stories are a part of Fedora Appreciation Week, starting in November 2018.

Why have Contributor Stories?

The purpose of Contributor Stories is to recognize a contributor who has impacted you at any time in Fedora. Let them know what you are thankful for and share a common memory or experience you remember. Taking the time to single out someone to give thanks is one of the best ways to make a personal impact.

Fedora meetup at Pune – March 2018

Long time we did not had any meetup at Pune, Maharashtra, India, so we decided to get started again.  Details about this meetup are available at Fedora Wiki page.

Planning for meetup started 1 month before. Initially Ompragash proposed to have meetup.com account for Fedora Pune to get more awareness. Later dropped this plan, since this is not only Fedora Pune level topic but applicable for all Fedora events.

Event started well in time.

  • 15 Attendees were present including college students.
  • Ompragash welcomed all the attendees and had a short introduction from everyone. He delivered his first talk “Telling the Fedora Story”, in this he explained how Fedora project started.
  • Parag explained different ways to contribute in Fedora in his talk. He kept on answering queries in between, it was engaging session.

Call for maintainers: Fedora package tagger

The Fedora package tagger application is looking for new maintainers by April 5, 2018; otherwise, Fedora Infrastructure will retire the app.

Before DevConfCZ 2018, the Fedora Infrastructure team met to review the “state of the apps” in Fedora’s infrastructure. The fedora-tagger application is currently broken since the decision to retire PkgDB. The core Infrastructure team does not have bandwidth and time to focus on this application, since there are other areas to focus on at the upcoming Infrastructure Hackathon.

Deprecate TCP wrappers Test Day 2018-03-22

Thursday, 2018-03-22, is Deprecate TCP wrappers Test Day!  This insallment of Test Day will focus on testing an important change set.

Why test?

Removing this package from Fedora will remove a package from default and minimal installations (removing dependency of daemons such as SSHD). It also makes the configuration straight-forward for new users (no shared files defining access rules, poorly reporting any errors to users).

Fedora participating in Google Summer of Code 2018

GSoC is a summer program aiming to bring more student developers into open source software development. It enables students to spend their summer break working with open source organizations on projects proposed by participating organizations and supported by mentors.

The Fedora Project has participated in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) as a mentoring organization for over a decade now. Once again, Fedora is participating again this year. We are happy to be accepted again as an organization this year and are looking forward to working with many bright and excited students across the world on many parts of Fedora.

Help translate the Fedora User Handbook

Two years ago, we decided to write a handbook that would help new users start with Fedora. The original handbook was written in Czech by Lukáš Kotek, but in the end it was a work of a community of people (proofreaders, typesetters, designers,…). The handbook was released in Czech only as a pilot project. If it’s successful let’s translate it to English and then to other languages and make it a global project. That was our plan.

The reason why we wrote the handbook is that we have very few giveaways at our booths that convey any information about Fedora. Yes, we have stickers, badges, case badges,… But those only convey the brand, thus are great for those who already know Fedora and want to show affiliation on the project, e.g. by placing a Fedora sticker on their laptop. We don’t really have something we can give to someone who is not familiar Fedora at all. DVDs served partly well for that case, but they’re going away as well.

That’s why we came up with a handbook with limited scope: it should get a person who is not familiar with Fedora from our booth to an installed system. It should tell why to choose Fedora, where to get it, how to install it, and how to start using it.

We had really positive feedback about the handbook in the Czech community, but sadly we haven’t found much time to internationalize the project. Until now. I picked it up again and start pushing it forward. The project has been moved to Pagure and I’m looking for people who can help me with that.
