lwn.net: Fedora project leader Paul Frields has announced a change in the way the Fedora board is elected; as of the upcoming election, five of the nine seets will be elected by the community, while four will be appointed by Red Hat. So Red Hat will no longer select a majority of the board.
phoronix.com: GNOME 2.22.0 was only released last month, but being released tomorrow is the first development release in the path towards GNOME 2.24.0. This first development release will be dubbed GNOME 2.23.1, with GNOME 2.23 being the unstable branch.
