Fedora Weekly News 216

Welcome to Fedora Weekly News Issue 216[1] for the week ending March 1,
2010. What follows are some highlights from this issue.

In Announcements, we have several development items, including changes
for packaging guidelines, a call for F13 translation packages rebuilds,
and news on Fedora 13 Alpha RC4 decisions from last week. In news from
the Fedora Planet, thoughts on UX collaboration between conferences, how
to set up client and server certificates for use with Apache Qpid, and
perspectives on why the IIPA’s position toward Open Source is
problematic and wrong. In Marketing news, an update on last week’s
Fedora Insight sprint, work on a Communication Matrix for the Marketing
team, and detail on the past weekly meeting activities, including
decisioning the F13 slogan — “Rock It!” In Ambassador news, an event
report from Dhaka, and updates on the Campus Ambassador program. In
Quality Assurance news, next week’s Test Day focus on webcams, lots of
tasty detail from QA Team weekly meetings, and a new tool,
fedora-easy-karma, which greatly asssists in the process of filing
feedback on packages in updates-testing via Bodhi. Translation reviews
the upcoming Fedora 13 tasks in that area, updates on the Transifex 0.80
upgrade, and new members in the Fedora Localization Project for the
Russian, Traditional Chinese and Greek teams. This week’s issue closes
with security advisory updates from the past week for Fedora 11, 12 and
13. Read on!
