  • 2015 in Numbers : Fedora CommOps

    CommOps is the newest official sub-project in Fedora, and the team’s role is to assist other sub-projects in Fedora. This is done by building and improving interactions within the internal Fedora community, as well as by increasing communication across the Project as a whole. 2015 was an important milestone for the Fedora Community Operations (CommOps) team in so many ways. Remy DeCausemaker,the Fedora Community Action and Impact Lead, Justin Flory(jflory7) and the CommOps team as whole recently published an excellent Year-in-Review article on Fedora Community Blog describing the CommOps Team highlights of 2015 and their vision for the upcoming year of 2016.

A Wayland status update

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
Red Hat
Software

It has been our goal for a while to get to a point where the Wayland port can be declared complete and ready to be enabled by default. We’ve come a long way since we started the porting effort in September 2013. In fact, we feel that we’re close enough that we can aim for Wayland by default in Fedora 24.

But the last mile is always the longest, and there’s still a few steps to take before we’re there. With this weeks releases of Wayland 1.9.91 and the GNOME 3.19.4 releases, we’ve taken a couple of the steps.

If Red Hat is an open organisation, then so is the NSA

Filed under
Red Hat

How about telling us why Red Hat is continuing to do business with the National Security Agency — you know, that little outfit that carries out mass surveillance of all Americans and a goodly proportion of the rest of the world — when the agency is using Red Hat enterprise Linux for doing those very tasks?

Or does Red Hat support mass surveillance which, incidentally, has been shown time and again to have absolutely no value when it comes to detecting potential terrorists or their plans?

Open organisation, you say? Then how about living up to your claims in the real world?

[...]

If Red Hat is such an open organisation, why do you send an employee to your rival SUSE's yearly conference in order to play the role of industrial spy? I met the bloke who came to Orlando in 2014. Spying? Is that why you appear to support the NSA's spying?

Fedora plans formal upgrade leapfrog scheme

Filed under
Red Hat

Red Hat senior quality assurance engineer Adam Williamson has revealed that the Fedora community is trying to deliver what it's calling “N-1” upgrades whereby it becomes possible upgrade from version X of Fedora to version X+2 without having to first install version X+1.

Williamson writes that Fedora's release cadence makes the N-1 scheme a good idea.

  • Red Hat Inc Bullish Signal Price T Rowe Associates Inc Is In!

    Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT) is a newly disclosed equity position for this institutional investor and the filing was required due to activity on December 31, 2015.

  • Add-on Metadata Initiative – Update 2

    After two weeks I’ve got another update on the add-on metadata initiative. The last update was not overly positive, but no one else participated during the Christmas break. After people returned from the holidays, there was a bit of breakthrough.

    First people updated information in the table and we identified add-ons that had been obsoleted and thus it doesn’t make sense to include them in the app catalog.

  • Fedora plans formal upgrade leapfrog scheme

    Red Hat senior quality assurance engineer Adam Williamson has revealed that the Fedora community is trying to deliver what it's calling “N-1” upgrades whereby it becomes possible upgrade from version X of Fedora to version X+2 without having to first install version X+1.

    Williamson writes that Fedora's release cadence makes the N-1 scheme a good idea.

    “The Fedora release process is expressly designed such that each release does not go EOL until a short time after the next-but-one release comes out (so Fedora 22 will not go EOL until a month after Fedora 24 comes out),” he writes.

Fedora: Next generation configuration mgmt

Filed under
Red Hat

To that end, I’d like to formally present my idea (and code) for a next generation configuration management prototype. I’m calling my tool mgmt.

Design triad

Mgmt has three unique design elements which differentiate it from other tools. I’ll try to cover these three points, and explain why they’re important. The summary:

Parallel execution, to run all the resources concurrently (where possible)
Event driven, to monitor and react dynamically only to changes (when needed)
Distributed topology, so that scale and centralization problems are replaced with a robust distributed system

The code is available, but you may prefer to read on as I dive deeper into each of these elements first.

What is a Fedora “Year in Review”?

Filed under
Red Hat

The past year was a bustling year for Fedora. Fedora 22 and 23 were released, and with their releases, all of the different sub-projects of Fedora have been doing their share of contributing to the overall success of Fedora. However, in a project as large as Fedora, it can be hard to keep track of what everyone is doing! If you’re a developer, you likely know a bit about what’s happening inside the code of Fedora, but you may not know what’s happening with the Fedora Ambassadors. Or maybe you’re involved with Globalization (G11n) and translating and know what’s happening there, but you’re not as familiar with what the Fedora Design team is working on.

  • The Best Graphics Card Brands For NVIDIA/AMD GPUs As A Linux Consumer?
    One of the most frequent topics I'm emailed about is any brand recommendations among NVIDIA and AMD AIB partners for graphics cards. For Linux users, is there a particular brand preference for graphics cards? The short story is, no, there isn't one particular brand when selecting either a GeForce or Radeon graphics card that a Linux gamer/enthusiast should go with over another AIB partner. Over the past 12 years of running Phoronix, there has been no single AIB partner that superbly stands out compared to the rest when it comes to graphics card AIB partner brands like ASUS, Zotac, HIS, MSI, etc. They all work under Linux, rarely the AIB differences extend beyond the heatsink/cooler and any default clock speed differences, and I haven't seen one that's over-the-top crazy about Linux. I also haven't seen any major partner consistently put the Tux logo or other Linux markings on their product packaging, let alone incorporate any Linux drivers onto their CD/DVD driver media.
