just announced that redhat is dropping the fedora project
anyway? Not really surprising, but it happened a little quicker than
I had thought it would.
Nope, just the "Fedora Foundation", sorry I got too bored reading the
email announcement to pick up the details of what that meant, so I
can't really explain what that changes. I did note they said they
want to put more money and support into the project as it was vital
to their business model.
* Gifting services ($1.5M/yr in bandwidth) to a non profit foundation
formed to run Fedora would cost Red Hat too much in tax.
* Keeping track of engineer time would be too costly, and most Fedora
work is done by Red Hat engineers.
* The requirements of a non-profit under US law is that a certain
percentage of their income needs to be from community donations, which
they are unlikely to meet.
They are moving back to having a community advisory board. Not much
WLUG maintain a list of mirrors of Linux in NZ that anyone can edit;
. It's a bit out of date,
but with all the people here who run a mirror updating their own little
bit, can get back in shape in no time.
