Re: Build Your Own Distro doesn't mention Fedora? (fwd)




Jonathan, something to consider in your tactics discussion -- how do we get more favorable articles into print magazines?

Hello, Greg--

Thanks for your message. I just wanted to let you know that the reason we didn't provide an article on the Fedora customization tools is that we've already covered them. We had an article on livecd-creator and Revisor in our December 2007 issue:

http://www.linux-magazine.com/issues/2007/85/original_spin

BTW: We also included a screenshot and description of these spin tools in our August 2007 issue, which came with a Fedora 7 DVD.

The Fedora tools were actually the first ones we wrote about.

We're very interested in providing good coverage of Fedora, so let me know if you can think of other interesting and original Fedora tools or features that might be a good topic for an article.

Best regards,

I've got to say, I'm pretty disappointed that the Fedora customization tools weren't even mentioned in your March 2008 issue -- considering that it was one of the biggest features of our Fedora 7 release, which came out almost a year ago. Was there any particular reason for this oversight? If you need some help on such an article, I know a bunch of people who would be happy to provide you with some content, myself included.

Check out our article from last year:
