  • Fedora August 2017 election change

    As seen earlier this week, the Fedora community holds elections in several groups. One group that elects seats this month is the Fedora Ambassador Steering Committee (FAMSCo).

    The FAMSCo election started along with others this week. However, due to a technical error, the voting system prevented some eligible people from voting. Contributors have now fixed this issue. Fedora Program Manager Jan Kurik announced the issue and the fix on the Ambassadors’ mailing list.

  • A Number Of Fedora 27 Features Get Pushed Back To Fedora 28

    Due to delays in the Fedora 26 release pushing it back by more than one month, the Fedora 27 schedule is rather tight with the change completion deadline having already been earlier this month and the Fedora 27 branching from Rawhide taking place in four days.

    Rawhide on 15 August will then begin the early work towards Fedora 28 while the branched Fedora 27 packages can go on to stabilize. The current Fedora 27 schedule is anticipating a beta release on 19~26 September, the final freeze on 10 October, and to push out the official release hopefully on 24 October.

  • Red Hat updates OpenShift container platform with new service catalog

    Red Hat issued its quarterly update to the OpenShift platform today, adding among other things, a Service Catalog that enables IT or third-party vendors to create connections to internal or external services.

    OpenShift is RedHat’s Platform as a Service, based on Kubernetes, the open source container management platform, which was originally developed by Google. It also supports Docker, a popular container platform, and adheres to the Open Container Initiative, a set of industry standards for containers, according to the company.

    As companies make the shift from virtual machines to containers, there is an increasing need for platforms like OpenShift, and Red Hat is seeing massive interest from companies as varying as Deutsche Bank, Volvo and United Health.

  • 3 open source projects that make Kubernetes easier

    Clearly, Kubernetes is an elegant solution to an important problem. Kubernetes allows us to run containerized applications at scale without drowning in the details of balancing loads, networking containers, ensuring high availability for apps, or managing updates or rollbacks. So much complexity is hidden safely away. 

    But using Kubernetes is not without its challenges. Getting up and running with Kubernetes takes some work, and many of the management and maintenance tasks around Kubernetes are downright thorny. 

    As active as Kubernetes development is, we can’t expect the main project to solve every problem immediately. Fortunately, the community around Kubernetes is finding solutions to those problems that, for one reason or another, the Kubernetes team hasn’t zeroed in on.

  • Fedora August 2017 elections beginning

    Twice a year, a new version of Fedora is released. The entire Fedora community is a part of the process, from packaging new updates, creating wallpapers, hosting our websites, and spreading the word at conferences and events. Fedora is a big community, and a few groups help lead in different areas of the community. These groups offer guidance and direction in technical and non-technical areas of Fedora. After every release, a round of elections for these groups begins. Nominated Fedora contributors from across the project campaign for different seats on the three leadership groups. Election week is this week!

  • Fedora Community Blog: Fedora Atomic WG is Moving!

    The Atomic Working Group is responsible for Fedora’s new container cloud platform, currently consisting of Fedora Atomic Host and the Fedora Layered Images Build System & Repository (FLIBS). As Atomic is now one of the three primary spins for Fedora, the WG spends most of its time on releases and integrating new container technologies into the OS. We are building the immutable infrastructure of the future, helping make Fedora the best free platform for automating thousands of servers.

The Red Hat Way

  • Red Hat wants to make cold-shouldered OpenStack red hot
    At OpenStack Summit in Boston last May, some speculated that the event might be the last gasp for OpenStack — an open-source platform for cloud computing and infrastructure-as-service. Granted, OpenStack was one of the less hyped open-source projects of the past year. But renewed community and end-user interest is breathing fresh life into the platform, according to Rob Young (pictured), senior manager of virtualization product and strategy at Red Hat Inc. Telcos and others are adopting OpenStack “because of the simplification of what was once complex, but also in the cost savings that can be realized by managing your own cloud within a hybrid cloud environment,” Young said.
  • Improved multimedia support with Pipewire in Fedora 27
    Pipewire — a new project of underlying Linux infrastructure to handle multimedia better — has just been officially launched. The project’s main goal is to improve the handling of both audio and video. Additionally, Pipewire introduces a security model to allow easy interaction with multimedia devices from containerized and sandboxed applications, i.e. Flatpak apps.
  • Architecting the future with abstractions and metadata
    The modern data center is built on abstractions, with Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift leading the way.
