spevack.wordpress: Most of the time that we see contentious debate come up in the Fedora Project is when the community is trying to create, or agree on, the governance or process by which a scarce resource is used or allocated.

ostatic.com: Yesterday was the world IPv6 day and reports say that there is some good news and some bad news for us who spend most of their time in Linuxland. Some others say this is much ado about nothing. For me, I might have passed into the "can't teach old dogs new tricks territory."

Fedora will be holding an IPv6 Test Day tomorrow, to test the readiness of both the Fedora distribution and project sites for IPv6. View this as an opportunity to contribute to Fedora while learning about IPv6 in real time from smart cookies who actually know what they’re talking about. I know that’s what I’m going to do.
