  • Setting up Vagrant for testing Ansible

    As part of my Google Summer of Code project proposal for the Fedora Project, I’ve spent a lot of time learning about the ins and outs of Ansible. Ansible is a handy task and configuration automation utility. In the Fedora Project, Ansible is used extensively in Fedora’s infrastructure. But if you’re first starting to learn Ansible, it might be tricky to test and play with it if you don’t have production or development servers you can use. This is where Vagrant comes in.

  • Some tools for working with Docker images

  • Fedora 24 delay, and more openQA work

    You probably read a more sensationalized version of this on Phoronix already, but we had the Fedora 24 go/no-go meeting today and decided to slip for a week. The sole reason for this was this blocker bug, which is to do with booting Windows from the Fedora boot menu on a UEFI system, wasn’t fixed in time. If you don’t need to do that, you could frankly go ahead and grab a Fedora 24 nightly and use it. It’ll be fine. Go ahead, have a ball.

  • Contributing to Fedora Quality Assurance

    Every day, people from all over the world work together to create and support new releases of Fedora. One of the many important tasks is QA, or quality assurance. The QA sub-project in Fedora helps test software updates and new versions of Fedora. This includes testing in Rawhide, the “constantly changing” branch of Fedora development, as well as the alpha and beta releases.

  • Getting started with Fedora QA (Part 1)

    This article is a part of a series introducing what the Fedora Quality Assurance (QA) team is, what they do, and how you can get involved. If you’ve wanted to get involved with contributing to Fedora and testing is interesting to you, this series explains what it is and how you can get started.

  • 32nd Chaos Communication Congress (32C3)

    At the end of last year Zacharias and Jacob joined me in representing Fedora at the 32nd Chaos Communication Congress in Hamurg, Germany. It was the first Fedora Event that I organized as Fedora Ambassador, therefore I was quite nervous. Until I arrived at the hotel it was unclear whether I will have any swag to decorate the assembly (there are no classic booths at the Congress), but I also packed some blue sweets, chocolate and Aachener Printen to lure visitors to our assembly. Luckily as you can see on the picture, additional swag also arrived in time.

  • Container and Microservices Myths: The Red Hat Perspective

    What are containers and microservices? What are they not? These are questions that Lars Herrmann, general manager of Integrated Solutions Business Unit at Red Hat, answered recently for The VAR Guy in comments about popular container misconceptions and myths.

  • An open process for discovering your core values

    I'd read The Open Organization (and many other articles along the way) as I tried to navigate the path forward, discover my authentic leadership and management style within this (still very foreign) context, and lead change in a non-threatening manner. I'd adopted and promoted "All Hill" language and events to help break down siloes. We'd engaged in an All Hill "strategic visioning" process that was faculty/staff-centric, rather than being led by the board, and that resulted in some new relationships, dialogue, and common language. We had hired, retired, or exited many faculty and staff, resulting in an organization that was suddenly fairly evenly split—almost exactly one third newer personnel, one third in the three-to-ten-year range, and one third employees who had been at the school more than a decade (half for more than 20 years). And we were still very, very far from being an "open organization."

  • Fedora 24 Final status is NO-GO

    The decision of the Fedora 24 Final Go/No-Go Meeting is NO-GO.

  • Fedora 24 Has Been Delayed Once More

    Today was a Go/No-Go meeting and the Fedora stakeholders have determined the final release must slip by another week.

    Due to outstanding F24 blocker bugs, it's been determined to delay the official Fedora 24 release by another week in hopes of being able to clear out the blockers. The next Go/No-Go meeting will happen on 16 January to see if Fedora 24 can then ship.

  • Fedora 24 Linux Has Been Delayed, It Should Now Launch on June 21, 2016

    Well, believe it or not, the upcoming Fedora 24 Linux operating system has been delayed once more, this time due to a bug in the GRUB2 bootloader, where the OS wasn't capable of booting on a Dell Precision M6800 machine with Windows 10.

    The decision to delay the June 14 release of Fedora 24 was taken today, June 9, during the usual Fedora 24 Final Go/No-Go meeting. This is the fourth delay for the Fedora 24 Linux operating system, and it now looks like the final launch should happen on June 21, 2016.

  • Red Hat Releases Framework That Can Drive Successful FOSS Projects

    In pushing open source projects forward, making good decisions matters, and Red Hat happens to use an in-house tool to help guide its decision making related to its technology projects. It's called the Open Decision Framework, and consists of the company's collection of its own best practices for making decisions and leading projects.

    Now, the company has announced the release of a community version of the Open Decision Framework. "The framework can help decision-makers communicate transparently, seek out diverse perspectives, collaborate more effectively across distributed teams, and limit unanticipated impacts of business projects and decisions," the company claims.

  • Using research to engage your community

    In his book, The Open Organization, Jim Whitehurst explains how the open source way of thinking has the power to influence the way organizations operate, not just how they can develop software. As a Senior Brand Explorer at the brand agency New Kind, much of my work involves guiding research projects for technology companies interested in using open source-inspired strategies for communicating and collaborating with customers and community members.

  • Be wary of heroes

    Inspiring change is difficult. Fighting the status quo typically means being able to communicate so effectively that powerful opponents can't win merely by outspending you. People need to read your work or hear you speak and leave with enough conviction that they in turn can convince others. You need charisma. You need to be smart. And you need to be able to tailor your message depending on the audience, even down to telling an individual exactly what they need to hear to take your side. Not many people have all these qualities, but those who do are powerful and you want them on your side.

  • OSCON 2016 Expo Hall Booth Report

    On Tuesday I attended OSCON‘s Open Container Day with members of the OpenShift team and the CentOS team. This turned out to be an interesting outing and I got pulled into an interview on TheNewStack with CentOS member Jim Perrin to discuss the Fedora and CentOS respective docker layered image build systems and tooling. This was a great opportunity to explain what we’re doing, why we’re doing it, and what we hope to provide to the community. This day was roughly half and half tech overview of different container tech and sales pitches from various companies. Which is somewhat understandable, since it’s a sponsored day event. I helped man the OpenShift table before getting pulled into TheNewStack interview.
