Fedora Foundation update
The Fedora™ Foundation continues to progress. Mark Webbink, deputy general counsel for Red Hat, addressed some of the specific goals of the foundation at a keynote address at LinuxWorld in San Francisco on August 9. Read more about the progress of the Fedora Foundation in this month's article.
Introducing the Fedora bugzappers
The formation of the Fedora bugzapper team was announced in July. Its mission is to ensure that bug reports are as useful to developers as possible. Bugzappers eliminate duplicate bugs, ensure that all bugs can be replicated, and bring bugs with patches attached to the immediate attention of developers.
Read more about the Fedora bugzapper team at fedoraproject.org.
Call for presentations: FUDCon London 2005
FUDCon London 2005, the third gathering of Fedora Users and Developers, will be held at LinuxWorld Conference and Expo UK, on October 6 in London, UK.
