"The release of Fedora 10, codenamed Cambridge, had
been delayed following the security breach in the Red Hat Fedora
infrastructure. The launch also comes as Fedora is in the spotlight
after Red Hat claimed that the distro has over 9.5 million machines
running its software -- a figure that it would make it the most
widely installed Linux distribution.
"Fedora insiders said the delay caused by the security breach
didn't dramatically upset the distribution's launch timing.
""If you look at our original schedule we were supposed to
release around Oct. 28 and here we are, four weeks later than what
we expected," Paul Frields, Fedora's project leader, told
InternetNews.com. The outage itself lasted about three weeks, he
added, "and during that time, our infrastructure team nuked our
infrastructure and rebuilt the entire thing.""
