[Interview] Jared Smith - Fedora Project Leader

Filed under

Jared Smith has been associated with the Fedora Project for several years and currently is the Project Leader. In an exclusive interview with devworx, he spoke on Fedora 16, the btrfs filesystem, other Linux projects and more! Jared said his role is all about bridging the gap between the Fedora user community, developers and Red Hat. To Red Hat as a company, he represents the Fedora community, while to the Fedora community, he represents Red Hat. That way, the bridges of communication always stay open in the community side as well as the corporate side.

Fedora primarily targets the lay user, while Red Hat focusses on the enterprise sector. Are these boundaries getting blurry now, with enterprise plugins and modules available for Fedora?

Well, in Fedora, our target audience is a tech savvy end user, a consumer who knows what Linux is, and is technical enough to be able to self support and find other users to help them if they have issues.

Variscite claims it consumes only 5mA in suspend mode. Read more

Cleaning Linux: Jed’s Nappy /boot

My home NAS machine is an Ubuntu 14.04 machine with a ZFS volume. I need the linux-headers packages in order to compile my ZFS dkms modules. Those take more space than the kernels tend to, so I try and stay on top of removing them. Wonder how many I have? (Read the rest at FreedomPenguin)
