The Fedora Project has lost a valued, longtime member of its community. Seth Vidal died last night, July 8.

Seth was a lead developer of yum and the update repository system, and a contributor to the CentOS project as well as the original Fedora Extras system. He worked tirelessly on the infrastructure for the Fedora Project to make all systems work well and consistently for our contributors around the world. He was a gifted speaker, a brilliant thinker, a clever wit, a humble and genuinely funny person, and a good friend.

The Fedora community owes an enormous debt of gratitude to Seth's dedication to Fedora and other free software projects, his commitment to community values, and his passion for excellence in his work. To say he will be missed is an understatement. He has been a colleague, a team member, a source of wisdom and advice, and above all, a friend and inspiration to countless people in the Fedora community over the past decade. His seminal and invaluable work in Fedora and free software will live on for years to come, and the legacy of his spirit will stay with the community, and with many of us individually, forever.

Our thoughts are with his partner Eunice, the rest of his family, and Seth's many friends and coworkers.

I know that many members of the Fedora community will want to personally share their condolences. We'll provide further information as soon as it is available.

>>
>> **** Features ****
>>
>> Fedora 19 continues our long tradition of bringing the latest
>> technologies to open source software users. No matter what you do with
>> open source, Fedora 19 has the tools you need to help you get things
>> done.
>>
>> A complete list with details of each new feature is available here:
>>
>> http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/19/FeatureList
>>
>> === Make new things ==>> Would you like to play? Whether you're a developer, maker, or just
>> starting to learn about open source development, we have what you need
>> to bring your ideas to reality. Here's a peek at some of our new tools:
>>
>> * 3D modelling and printing are enabled through a variety of tools,
>> including OpenSCAD, Skeinforge, SFACT, Printrun, and RepetierHost. By
>> bringing 3D printing tools into Fedora, you can get started with
>> what's ready-to-go in the repositories without having to download
>> binary blobs or run Python code from git.
>>
>> * OpenShift Origin makes it easy for you to build your own
>> Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) infrastructure, allowing you to enable
>> others to easily develop and deploy software.
>>
>> * node.js is a popular Javascript-based platform for those building
>> scalable network applications or real-time apps across distributed
>> devices. Also included is the npm package manager, providing access
>> to over 20,000 programs and libraries available under free and open
>> source licenses.
>>
>> * Ruby 2.0.0, just released in February, comes to Fedora while
>> maintaining source-level backwards compatibility with your Ruby 1.9.3
>> software. Also included: a custom Ruby loader for easy switching of
>> interpreters.
>>
>> * MariaDB, a community-developed fork of MySQL, is the default
>> implementation of MySQL in Fedora 19, offering users a truly open
>> MySQL implementation.
>>
>> === Get things done ==>>
>> * Federated VOIP means Fedora users can make calls using a user@domain
>> address with the same convenience as email.
>>
>> * CUPS has been updated to the latest upstream release, using PDF
>> rather than PostScript as the baseline document format.
>>
>> === Learn ==>>
>> * Developer's Assistant is great for those new to development or even
>> new to Linux, this tool helps you to get started on a code project
>> with templates, samples, and toolchains for the languages of your
>> choice. Bonus: It lets you publish directly to GitHub.
>>
>> === Deploy, Monitor, and Manage ==>> Make your machines work for you--not the other way around. Whether you
>> have one or "one too many" machines, Fedora 19 helps you boot manage
>> your systems and enables you to be proactive with tools for diagnosis,
>> monitoring, and logging.
>>
>> * Syslinux optional boot tool integration brings you optional,
>> simplified booting of Fedora. We have added support for using
>> syslinux instead of GRUB via kickstart and plan to add a hidden
>> option in Anaconda installer as well. syslinux is especially ideal
>> for images used in cloud environments and virt appliances where the
>> advanced features of GRUB are not needed.
>>
>> * Among other systemd enhancements in this release, systemd Resource
>> Control lets you modify your service settings without a reboot by
>> dynamically querying and modifying resource control parameters at
>> runtime.
>>
>> * Kerberos administrators will enjoy an easier experience, thanks to
>> Fedora 19 removing the need for Kerberos clients to sync their clocks
>> or to have reverse DNS records carefully setup for services. In
>> addition, it provies Kerberos-enabled, LDAP replicated, two-factor
>> authentication for FreeIPA.
>>
>> * OpenLMI is a common infrastructure for the management of Linux
>> systems that makes remote management of machines much simpler.
>>
>> **** Desktop Environments and Spins ****
>>
>> === GNOME 3.8 ==>>
>> GNOME 3.8 brings new applications such as clock and improvements to the
>> desktop including privacy and sharing settings, ordered search,
>> frequent applications overview, and additionally provides the ability
>> to enable a "classic mode" for a user experience similar to GNOME 2
>> built out of a collection of GNOME Shell extensions. Refer to
>> https://help.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.8/ for more details.
>>
>> === KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.10 ==>>
>> A modern, stable desktop environment, KDE Plasma Workspaces 4.10
>> includes new features for printing and screenlocking, better indexing
>> of files, and improved accessibility features. Refer to

Standing (left to right): CJ Barrios, Justin Mangaoang, Rommel Tan, Mharc Dela Rama, Heherson Pagcaliwagan, Joel Simpao, Thomas Santiago and Noel Osea. Seated (left to right): Genice Landroma, Therese Carmona, Christina Sianghiao and Lyn Pabustan.

Three days after Fedora 14 was released (5 November 2010), Fedora Philippines held a Release Party at UP ITTC and Mang Jimmy's Restaurant. Members who helped make the event possible are Mharc Dela Rama, Justin Mangaoang, Rommel Tan, Heherson Pagcaliwagan and Dona Marie Grace.

The Release Party coincided with UP ITTC's last day of training for the quarter and we had SuperTrack's Training Room all to ourselves. The original plan was to include all the trainees of UP ITTC but challenges with logistics and resources prompted us to scale down the celebrations. In the end, we have 13 attendees, 12 of which are UP ITTC trainees and 5 of which are Fedora Philippines members. The group looks forward to April 2011 when Fedora 15 will be released.

The Release Party was done in two parts - a technical session at UP ITTC and socials at Mang Jimmy's. The technical session tackled "Using VirtualBox for Test-driving Fedora 14" and was run by Heherson Pagcaliwagan. Most of the attendees are in the midst of switching careers to IT and have little or no exposure to Linux. Using VirtualBox will enable them to test Fedora 14 and other distributions without making major changes on their personal systems. Much of the discussion revolved around Fedora, Red Hat, Ubuntu, Open Source Business Model, Linux in the Enterprise, Application Development using Fedora, Networking Technologies, ARM and Embedded Systems.

The group transferred to Mang Jimmy's Restaurant at the end of the session because food and drinks are not allowed in UP ITTC's training areas. Media were promised to be distributed during next quarter's commencement, 15 November 2010.

The University of the Philippines Information Technology Training Center (UP ITTC) was established by the Japanese and Philippine governments through the University of the Philippines (UP) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) to address the inadequate practical training and industry experience of Filipino IT graduates.

The UP ITTC administers the one-year Certificate in Information Technology training program with emphasis on the following specializations: Applications Development, Network Systems, and Mobile Computing and Embedded Systems.

Fedora Project Philippines successfully held a Linux Overview Talk with UP ITTC's newest batch of trainees last 25 August 2010 as part of its celebrations for Linux Day this year.

Special thanks to UP ITTC trainers Sonia Pascua and Jordan Centeno for making the event possible.
It Was Indeed Fun!

We just had a very successful Release Party at Gerry's Grill Restaurant, SM North EDSA SkyGarden earlier this evening. Attendees include (from left to right) Henry Hutalle Jr. of Progressive Software, Orlee Pasion of Bayan Telecommunications, Jose Mari Guevara of Bosch Philippines, Heherson Pagcaliwagan of Fedora Philippines and Dona Grace of University of the Philippines - Diliman. This is Henry and Orlee's first Fedora event.

Aside from the usual shop talk, the group discussed future plans for Fedora activities in the Philippines. Among the activities outlined are expanded presence in the upcoming Software Freedom Day and POSSE. Expanding our network was also put on the board - linkages with other techgroups, schools and media outfits. A Facebook "like page" for Fedora activities in the Philippines was also agreed upon by the group.

Together with Engels and Maj Antonio who have earlier expressed their regret for not being able to attend the event, this group will serve as our core team for our upcoming events. Fun! Fun!

Thank you to Herson, Henry and Dona for manning our Fedora booth during Software Freedom Day at the National Computer Center, UP Diliman, Quezon City. More than 500 attendees joined us last Sept. 19, 2009.

Fedora 11 Live CDs and Fedora stickers were given away to attendees. We also had Fedora shirts.
More pictures are posted at http://bluepoint.com.ph/sfd09/

One lucky attendee who was really eager during Herson's talk got a 4GB USB freebie!

The project called Barry is pretty vital to me as a BB user. Unfortunately, it does not have Fedora 9 binaries yet and does not build nicely too. So, I took the liberty of building them and creating a patch that makes it build for Fedora 9 if you get 'memset', 'sort', 'strlen' not found errors.

Flow-tools
Flow-tools is library and a collection of programs used to collect, send, process, and generate reports from NetFlow data. The tools can be used together on a single server or distributed to multiple servers for large deployments. The flow-toools library provides an API for development of custom applications for NetFlow export versions 1,5,6 and the 14 currently defined version 8 subversions. A Perl and Python interface have been contributed and are included in the distribution. Flow-tools is distributed under a BSD form of license.

Flow-tools Inter.net Packages
This is a package against the flow-tools package developed at Ohio State primarily by Mark Fullmer. This package contains a number of scripts and programs that allow a user to create billing, bandwidth monitoring and intrusion detection systems using flowtools. Flowtools is a tool that collects CISCO netflow export files and organizes them. The Inter.netPH contribs contains tools such as a new flow-as-if for easier AS analysis. It also contains flow-split that enables separation of netflow files into different files based on a configuration file and many others. It also contains flow-iptime which allows the network administrator to determine exact traffic details for a particular time. This package was jointly developed by William Emmanuel S. Yu of the Ateneo de Manila University and Miguel A. Paraz of Inter.net Philippines. A number of extensions such as 95 percentile, SPEC File and new summary generating scripts were added at SVIC.

Software Freedom Day 2008 was a big event for Fedora Philippines. Here's a collated report from the local Fedora Ambassadors:


Magie
Fedora Ambassadors Philippines took part in the Software Freedom Day celebration last Sept. 20, 2008. More than 500 attendees flocked to the National Computer Center building at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City for the whole day affair.

A booth was allotted to Fedora Project by the organizers, Bluepoint Linux Users Elite (alumni of Bluepoint Foundation) and Commission on Information and Communications Technology – National Computer Center (CICT-NCC). Former Senator Jovito Salonga, Bluepoint Trustee Emeritus, gave the invocation and Director General Angelo Timoteo Diaz de Rivera of CICT-NCC delivered the opening remarks. Linuxcare founder, former Linux Foundation CTO, Linux Professional Institute and Free Standards Group founding sponsor Arthur Tyde delivered the keynote and talked about Oracle Unbreakable Linux. Tyde is currently a Linux & Open Source Solutions Architect at Oracle Philippines. The plenary session was capped by presentations about Open Source for the Visually Impaired, SM's Open Source Experience, IPv6, and the Fedora Project.

Other organizations that supported and sponsored the event were: Philippine Linux Users Group, Philippine Linux Windows Users Group, Slackware Linux Users Group, LinuxChix Philippines, One Laptop Per Child (OLPC), Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI), Computerworld, Oracle Philippines, and Sun Microsystems. Trend Micro was the official Codefest Sponsor that was participated by 15 college students from different universities and colleges in Metro Manila.

The Fedora burnfest was a huge success. There was an overwhelming demand for Fedora discs and USB sticks. Participants also expressed interest in joining the Fedora Ambassadors. They are also looking forward to the Fedora 10 release party in December. We hope to receive support from FAMSCO by then.

More details and photos will soon be posted at http://bluepoint.com.ph/sfd08/

Congratulations Magie and Herson! We originally expected 150 attendees, but more than 500 came! I'm sure the next events will be even better. I talked about the Fedora Project while Magie was running the whole event and Herson was manning the Fedora booth. Several teachers from different colleges expressed their interest in making the Fedora Project part of their students' thesis requirements. Scheduling of presentations to their college deans are now in progress.


Herson
I was waiting for Ma'am Magie to post the pics of our recently concluded SFD celebration but since she's still probably recuperating from the event, let me, in her stead, report what happened last Saturday at the National Computer Center here in Quezon City.

Official registration was supposed to start 8:30 AM but when I passed by the venue around 7:30AM on my way to my office, students were already milling around the complex and a provincial bus was already parked beside the venue. Talk about being early! When I returned around 8:45AM, the place was already packed and Ma'am Magie was already going on circles

I was designated as the booth man by virtue of seniority *(Truth be told, Ma'am Magie was busy organizing the whole event while Sir Engels was giving speeches)*. The Fedora booth consisted of a tarpaulin, flyers, two LiveUSB Station posters and my office laptop featuring Fedora 9. I originally planned to bring my Asus eee loaded with eeedora to the event but I was locked out of our office with no keys -- stupid me. A friend later took pity on me and sent for his two laptops *(both of which are Windows)* and together we burned away those USB sticks.

Apart from burning LiveUSBs, I gave away flyers, cajoled SFD-goers to try Fedora 9 using my laptop, gave impromptu talks about the merit of Fedora and its difference with other Linux distributions (most of the time - Ubuntu), met students, teachers and other professionals and had a blast the whole time. Talking particularly with the kids made me feel like a rock star

The major drawer of our booth was ceratinly the LiveUSB creation. It would have been FreeMedia but early on, we have decided to do away with the distribution of DVDs and LiveCDs because that would entail spending money we don't really have much of. What meager funds we have scrapped together were funneled into the whole event. Either way, we had registered around 50 individuals who still wanted to hear more about the Fedora Project and possibly contribute themselves. These included teachers who want their students contribute as ambassadors and/or developers, students who wanted to make a case study in the use of Fedora and professionals who are interested in holding seminars/trainings in deploying Fedora in their line of work.
