Fedora Google Summer of Code Students for 2017

On Thursday, May 4th, the official announcement of accepted projects for this year’s Google Summer of Code (GSoC) was released.  Fedora is proud to be one of the selected participating organizations and we’re pleased to announce who will spend the summer hacking on Fedora-related projects!

What is Google Summer of Code?

In case you’ve never heard of the program, you can head to the GSoC homepage. The sub-title on the page sums it up perfectly:

Google Summer of Code is a global program focused on bringing more student developers into open source software development. Students work with an open source organization on a 3 month programming project during their break from school.

That basically means Google, together with FLOSS organizations, selects many talented students. These students are offered the oportunity to have an internship with the FLOSS organization.  The students are paid a stipend by Google to allow them to keep their summer free for the internship.

Google started the program in 2005 and Fedora has been participating since 2006. That means this is the eleventh year Fedora has taken part! Last year, a total of 1,206 students were accepted, 10 of whom were with Fedora.

What projects were accepted?

This year, a total of 1317 students have been accepted and six of them will be working on different Fedora or Fedora-related projects. The areas of those projects can’t be summed up easily so we’re linking to their proposal pages directly (for those who didn’t forget to put it on the wiki). If you’re not in the mood to read them at this point, worry not, a follow-up post will contain a short gist of their proposals.

Now without further a do, here is a list of the 6 students!

What happens next?

Now is the time for community bonding which means the students will now set up their Fedora accounts, start hanging around on the IRC channels, mailing lists and get the overall feel of the Fedora community, while also setting up their blogs to write about their progress during the summer.  This is also the time for you to make friends with them and welcome them to our community.

It is also the time to start setting up their development environment and they can even start sending small patches to their respective projects.

However, the actual coding part (that is, hacking away on what’s included in the proposal) will start on 30th of May and ends on 21st of August.

In a follow-up post, we’ll bring you the links to their blogs, along with the students’ introductions.

Using your Fedora email alias with Gmail

Gmail is a popular email service and web client for browsing, receiving, and sending email. Gmail is used by billions of people across the world. It’s one of the simplest, most accessible email services even with being full of features. Did you know that it is possible to read and reply to other email services directly from Gmail? I’ve been doing this for years. Here is how to do it with your Fedora (fedoraproject.org) email alias.

Mailing List Migrations: Hyperkitty, Mailman3

Fedora <3 Hyperkitty

Hyperkitty is here

The Fedora Engineering team has been working on a new system for our mailing lists. Mailman 3 came out earlier this year and it has a new shiny web UI: Hyperkitty.

The Fedora Hosted lists will be migrated on November 16th, and the Fedora Project lists later in the week. After migration you should be able to use the new Hyperkitty UI to post and read the lists if you choose or continue to get emails in the traditional way.

Changes in headers and other features

There may be some changes in some headers, so if you filter your list emails be ready to adjust your filters. See wiki page below for details:

Some lists using mailman2 features not yet available in mailman3 will be migrated later. More information as well as current lists migrated, being migrated and deferred for migration can be found at:

Hyperkitty migration help

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the Infrastructure list.

If you find a problem or issue, please file a Fedora Infrastructure ticket and we will work to fix things for your case or bug.

Regards,
— The Fedora Infrastructure team
