TuxMachines: OSI's Comments to the White House Office of Management and Budget Regarding the "Federal Source Code Policy"
Governments around the globe recognize the value of open source as both a technology solution delivering value to the public they serve, as well as an approach for development returning tax-payer investments back to the society they represent. The implementation of the Federal Source Code Policy will be a key component in “reducing Federal vendor lock-in, decreasing duplicative costs for the same code, increasing transparency across the Federal Government, and minimizing the challenges associated with integrating large blocks of code from multiple sources” (Line 30, Federal Source Code Policy).

Fedora Workstation Phase 1 – Homestretch
When we set of to do the Fedora Workstation we had some clear idea about where we wanted to take it, but we also realized there was a lot of cleaning up needed in our stack to make our vision viable. The biggest change we felt was needed to enable us was the move towards using application bundles as the primary shipping method for applications as opposed to the fine grained package universe that RPMS represent. That said we also saw the many advantages the packages brought in terms of easing security updates and allowing people to fine tune their system, so we didn’t want to throw the proverbial baby out with the bathwater. So we started investigating the various technologies out there, as we where of course not alone in thinking about these things. Unfortunately nothing clearly fit the bill of what we wanted and trying to modify for instance Docker to be a good technology for running desktop applications turned out to be nonviable. So we tasked Alex Larsson with designing and creating what today is known as xdg-app. Our requirements list looked something like this (in random order):
Multi selection in Anaconda
Exciting news people! Anaconda now has the desired multiselection in Custom storage spoke which was required for a long time. You can try it in Fedora 24 alpha and Rawhide. I know, it should have been there already but there were way too many other issues to settle before this one.
Fedora Media Writer Test Day tomorrow! (2016-04-19)
As part of this planned Change for Fedora 24, the Fedora graphical USB writing tool – formerly called “Live USB Creator”, and still technically called that in terms of source repos and filenames, but in the process of being rebranded as “Fedora Media Writer” – is being extensively revised and rewritten. The idea is the new tool will be sufficiently capable, reliable, and cross-platform usable that it can be the primary download for Fedora Workstation 24: the main ‘flow’ of the Workstation download page will run through the tool, instead of giving you a download link to the ISO file and various instructions for using it in different ways.

OpenSchool 2016 in Brno
Last week Red Hat Czech has for the first time hoster a very special event. We've called it OpenSchool and the purpose of the event was to explain to high school students trends in IT, trends in software development as well as why should they care about opensource. It was fairly tough for us to figure out the level of knowledge that these kids between 12-16 years of age know about IT now. Sure they use smart phones daily, are on most of social networks and intuitively use tons of different applications - but do they know how their favorite apps are developed and what powers their daily used social network in the back?
Event report: rootconf 2016
Rootconf is the largest DevOps, and Cloud infrastructure related conference in India. This year’s event happened on 14-15th April in the MLR convention center, Bangalore. I traveled on the day one of the event from Pune. Woke up by 3AM in the morning, and then took the first flight to Bangalore. Picked up Ramky on my way to the venue. Managed to skip most of the (in)famous Bangalore traffic thanks to a govt holiday.
