  • Fedora August 2017 election change

    As seen earlier this week, the Fedora community holds elections in several groups. One group that elects seats this month is the Fedora Ambassador Steering Committee (FAMSCo).

    The FAMSCo election started along with others this week. However, due to a technical error, the voting system prevented some eligible people from voting. Contributors have now fixed this issue. Fedora Program Manager Jan Kurik announced the issue and the fix on the Ambassadors’ mailing list.

  • A Number Of Fedora 27 Features Get Pushed Back To Fedora 28

    Due to delays in the Fedora 26 release pushing it back by more than one month, the Fedora 27 schedule is rather tight with the change completion deadline having already been earlier this month and the Fedora 27 branching from Rawhide taking place in four days.

    Rawhide on 15 August will then begin the early work towards Fedora 28 while the branched Fedora 27 packages can go on to stabilize. The current Fedora 27 schedule is anticipating a beta release on 19~26 September, the final freeze on 10 October, and to push out the official release hopefully on 24 October.

Another Behind-the-Scenes Niche Where Open Source is Winning

Do you spend a lot of time thinking about Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons? Unless you run a retail store, probably not. But if you do run a store (or stores) along with an e-commerce operation, BLE is a hot new thing you are either using already or thinking about using before long. Why? Because the graffiti is on the wall, and it says, “Sales in physical stores are going down every year, and most retailers aren’t seeing enough online sales gains to take up the slack.” BLE may help stop the retail sales slide or at least slow it down. It’s cheap enough, especially with open source beacons, that it’s certainly worth a try. Read more
