Thanks for your posting update. :)

> Indeed - what you're seeing is the initial design sketch for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Insight, which will be launching around the same time Beta comes out. You can see the test version going up at https://publictest6.fedoraproject.org/zikula/ (warning: *very* rough! *very* much a test! *NOT DONE YET!*) and follow along on the http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/logistics/ mailing list if you are curious.
Cool, URLs noted and tried them both out. Seems as you said, the https://publictest6.fedoraproject.org/zikula/ is a work in progress...I got the following error this weekend and today, when trying to access the URL -
Warning: Loader::require(includes/classes/Smarty/Smarty.class.php) [function.Loader-require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/share/zikula/includes/Loader.class.php on line 326
Fatal error: Loader::require() [function.require]: Failed opening required 'includes/classes/Smarty/Smarty.class.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/pear:/usr/share/php') in /usr/share/zikula/includes/Loader.class.php on line 326
I'll try that URL again later on. :)

> Yep! Thanks for the reminder - we will be working on press kits starting in a few weeks. Had to get the slogan and the talking points done first, though. ;)
Cool, when those appear, then please send a yo ho and I would like to look and see this. :)
> (more feedback on talking points?
What I think / thought was cool stuff in the latest release of Fedora...Dracut, GRUB with ext4, and IPV6.
I read about the Dracut product and I have been trying that out. At this time, I am not very impressed with Dracut. After conducting about eight or so kernel updates on my variety of systems, Dracut is slow about 20+ minutes in order to invoke the kernel update. Afterward, doing kernel updates, I receive the ABRT indicating I had a kernel failure...sort of a false negative if you can see my mind. So I am sort of actually happy that Dracut is not in the list. :)
As a future RHEL6 system administrator, an important aspect to be aware of in F12 is IPV6 support as well as GRUB with ext4. :)
> how can we make these more useful to you?
If I was not familiar with a talking point, then "help me" to be able to convey the content. The use of effective presentations which have been done in either video/sound and/or podcast will help will doing the presentation of material which I may not have first hand experience on. My thought is if others have presented or created content on this, then give me a URL to review so I may integrate their content into my "speech." :)
> I would be particularly interested in what the "user" talking points sound like to a non-technical person - do they make sense?
I think that for both a user as well as a system administrator, the XZ payload content using the LZMA format, is right on the money. :)
In the user section for PackageKit, does not do it for me as a user. I am not excited by the content. The PackageKit content is a little beyond my technical understanding as a user. I think that as a system administrator, that would be good stuff to read. :)
> are they compelling?)
The NetworkManager and video content hit the points. :)
Also, the libguestfs and virtualization content are well understood by me. :)
As a talking points reference of main points, the content is there. :v)
Mel, I guess samples of the main F12 talking points which is useful for doing my presentation. I will practice with the current "F12 talking points" content and always make sure that additional F12 information is available as a reference. :v)
Please have a great day! :~)
