Plans are still in the very early stages, so be sure to check in with the FUDCon website in the coming weeks to stay up-to-date with the latest developments.
Fedora at LinuxWorld San Francisco
Come see Fedora at LinuxWorld in San Francisco, August 8-11. A number of Fedora contributors will be there and will be giving in-booth presentations on a range of topics, from Anaconda to Xen. For more information about attending LinuxWorld, visit their website.
Fedora Core 5 schedule announced
Work has started on Fedora Core 5. FC5 will have a slightly longer development cycle than typical Fedora Core releases to accommodate some larger features; release is currently target for February 2006. Consult the preliminary FC5 schedule for more details.
Fedora Core 4 status
Since Fedora Core 4's initial release, at least 96 newly updated packages have been released. New package releases are announced on fedora-announce-list.
Introducing the Fedora Live CD project
The Fedora Live CD project held their kickoff meeting on July 7, 2005. Much of the work will be based on the Fedora-based live CD project at linux4all.de. For more information about how to participate, visit the project homepage.
Fedora and Google Summer of Code
The Fedora Project is a proud participant in the Google Summer of Code. Students have been selected and have already started work on their projects. The list of accepted projects and a list of other outstanding projects that could use help can be found at fedoraproject.org.
Over 1200 packages are currently under maintenance for the Fedora Extras repository for Fedora Core 4 for the i386, x86_64 and ppc architectures. Fedora Extras repository contents are viewable for i386 and x86-64. New maintainers are welcome; the process for becoming a maintainer for Fedora Extras is documented on fedoraproject.org.
There are a number of packages in Fedora Extras that are currently without maintainers. These are listed at fedoraproject.org. The process for claiming ownership of an orphaned package is also documented on the fedoraproject.org page.
