The Fedora Project Board met this week to discuss issues surrounding the upcoming release of Fedora 7 (F7). Though originally scheduled for release on April 26, that date has now been moved back to May 24, dashing the development team's plan to debut the final release at this year's Red Hat Summit.

In this follow-up to his article on SSH client software security settings, John Tränkenschuh describes the settings and implementation details important to your OpenSSH server installation.

The cheat sheets includes common commands that you’ll use when using Subversion on a daily basis. I didn’t include every option or command that subversion supports, nor did I include any administration stuff. This sheet is aimed at developers who use Subversion on a daily basis.
Bruce Willis will face down cyberterrorists in upcoming blockbuster Live Free or Die Hard. Ex-model turned actress Suzie Q will play an uber-hacker out to bring down the US's transport and banking system with a few mouse clicks in the forthcoming haxploitation opus.
Well I have survived yet another day of KDE and I’m still going strong. It’s not so bad once you get used to it I will say that I would not be having such a positive experience if it weren’t for all of your reader comments. I really do appreciate it. I feel a bit like I’m on the other side of the tutorial this week!

So, the "Dunc-Tank" group decided to experiment with financially supporting some key developers to get Debian out the door on time. Whoops!
We have trouble. After 40 years of development and almost 20 years of commercial use, the Internet is getting clogged up. We have more spam than legitimate e-mail, more advertising than content, and a few not very well-behaved protocols making trouble for all of us. But what's to be done?
