Fedora and Mozilla Activity Days in Prishtina, Kosovo

As part of Open Labs Hackerspace, I was invited to Prishtina, Kosovo by fellow hacktivist Ardian Haxha. I was asked to facilitate various sessions about Fedora and Mozilla. Furthermore, I was happy to design the artwork for the event too. This greatly aligned with my work at Mozilla Community Design and the Fedora Design Team. Ardian is a hard-working community member of FLOSSK. He was heavily involved in the organization of the past SFK conferences in the same city of Prishtina. He recently rediscovered the pleasure of working with the Fedora and Mozilla communities again, so he decided to organize the Fedora and Mozilla Activity Days in Prishtina on the 26th to 27th of March.

Golden chance to translate Fedora 24 in your language

Out of the six billion people in the world, only 339 million have English as a first language. The importance of English in global business increases the number of English speakers, but the people learning are taking English on as a second language. A notable number of users prefer products in their own language. Japan is a common example of this.

In the Fedora Globalization (G11n) group, we are making this happen. The efforts are huge, and kudos to all our contributors.If you are a non-English user in Fedora and want to help improve translations in your native language, this is your time to contribute! A virtual Fedora translation sprint is coming up soon for Fedora 24 GUI applications.

We already had a number of blog posts regarding how Globalization (G11n) Fedora Activity Days (FADs) went. After all of these reports, it makes sense to have one post discussing the achievements from our Activity Days.

On November 1st – 3rd, 2015, the Fedora Globalization (G11n) team held their Fedora Activity Day (FAD) in the Red Hat office in Tokyo, Japan. A Fedora Activity Day is a mini-conference where contributors get together to work on major tasks related to Fedora. The G11n team met with objectives of working on Fedora 24 development plans, brainstorming on a Fedora globalization workflow, and deciding strategy for different Fedora products.

Fedora contributor and member of the G11n team, Pravin Satpute, wrote detailed reports of the happenings over the course of the FAD. You can read his Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 write-ups on his blog.

Python 3 Porting FAD: “We’ve done a lot of things…”

This article originally appeared on contributor Matej Stuchlik’s personal blog.

The Awesome

The Python 3 Porting Fedora Activity Day wrapped up this Sunday. In the span of ~48 hours and three continents, we’ve done a lot of things:

  • 32 people had made 126 commits to the portingdb, with 3,803 additions and 3,226 deletions, making the portingdb more useful for everyone.
  • We’ve filled numerous bugs for Fedora packages that lack Python 3 support, providing an updated .spec file for 9 of them.
  • Best of all, 7 upstreams received Python 3 compatibility patches!

This all with the help of people from around the world, from all sorts of distros, cooperating on-line and off.

I’d like to thank frafra, michel-slm, fujimotos, michaeleekk, rodrigc, barracks510, fitoria, rupe120, decause, sayanchowdhury, Richard Sarkis, Sebastian Dyroff, Fale, dperson, fabaff, Riamse, carlwgeorge, MSK61, jflory7, mayorgatellez, staranjeet, QuLogic, hroncok, booxter, tyll, pigjuliux, williamjmorenor for making this awesome, and abadger, threebean and encukou for handling all the awesomeness. 🙂

What’s next?

One thing is for sure, this isn’t the last Python 3 Porting day! It’s been a lot of fun and we’ve learned a lot, so we would like to have another P3P Day in a month or two. Be sure to tweet at me, or join the #fedora-python channel on Freenode, if you have any suggestion on how to make it even better than it was. 🙂

Help port Python packages to Python 3

This upcoming weekend, a group of Fedora developers are convening for the Python 3 Fedora Activity Day (FAD) to make more progress on porting Python 2 packages to Python 3. If you want to lend a hand, jump into the #fedora-python IRC channel on Freenode between [localize_time tz=”EST”]8am Nov. 14, 2015[/localize_time] and [localize_time tz=”EST”]8pm Nov. 15, 2015[/localize_time] and introduce yourself.

The Python 3 FAD is part of a larger initiative started two years ago to make Python 3 the default implementation in Fedora. Great progress has already been made, but there is still much work to do – only 32% of Python packages in Fedora are ported to Python 3. As a result, this weekend’s Python 3 Fedora Activity Day aims to accomplish improving those numbers by porting over more Python 2 software to Python 3.

Not only is this is a great opportunity to make an impact on the software that the community uses every day, but it’s also a chance to gain one of the more rare and exclusive Fedora badges, Parselmouth! To help show how you can help, Fedora Python maintainer Matej Stuchlik answered some of the Community Operations team’s questions.
