Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Henry Kingman today shares with the Linux.com community his
exclusive interview with Fedora Project Leader Paul Frields.
Frields goes into detail on the upcoming Fedora 13 release, his
decision to transition out of the Project Leader position and how
many contributors to Fedora are being paid by Red Hat, among many
other topics. Grab a cup of coffee for this in-depth
"Kingman: As we approach the release of lucky Fedora 13, how is
everything going? In playing with the F13 release candidate, I
noticed some updates to the RPM tools; but otherwise, things seem
to be pretty stable.
"Frields: We're getting toward the end of the process. We've had
an incredible response from the community for testing this release.
But last night, at a "readiness" meeting, we identified at least
one bug that we couldn't clear. So we're now targeting May 25,
instead of May 18, as originally planned."
