Tuesday, 2018-08-21 is the Kernel 4.18 Test Day!
The kernel team is working on final integration for Kernel 4.18. This version was just recently released, and will arrive soon in Fedora.
This version will also be the shipping kernel for Fedora 29. So it’s to see whether it’s working well enough and catch any remaining issues.
It’s also pretty easy to join in: all you’ll need is an iso (which you can grab from the wiki page). Continue reading
Fedora has an android app which lets a user browse Fedora Magazine, Fedora Ask, Fedocal etc within it. This app is build using the Ionic Framework, Angular and Cordova.
We worked to improve the existing Fedora App for Android for speed, utility, and responsiveness, introduce a deeper native integration and make the app more personal for the user.
The Fedora Diversity & Inclusion Team is working on a new set of best practices and guidelines for Fedora-organized events. The team is looking for feedback from the wider Fedora community, both remote and in-person at the upcoming Flock 2018 conference.
Fedora event guidelines are a set of practices to help foster inclusion and grow diversity in Fedora-organized events. We value the participation and involvement of all people – speakers, attendees, and volunteers alike. Everyone can have different challenges or circumstances that affect their ability to participate in an event. Through these guidelines, we want to ensure that we think about the challenges of each and every person. It enables us to work toward helping all people to fully participate, and feel welcomed and comfortable.
I worked on the redesign of the user experience and interface of the Fedora Community App. The Fedora App is a central location for Fedora users and innovators to stay updated on The Fedora Project. I revamped the design of the application from ground up to match the community standards and improve the overall experience.

Today, a lot of hard work and effort from a multi-year process pays off. Our new docs site is live at https://docs.fedoraproject.org/. Thanks to Adam Šamalík for a converting everything to the Antora publication engine, and to many members of the docs team for significant work in converting from DocBook to AsciiDoc format. This piece picks up where the announcement in the Fedora Magazine stopped. It has more details that may be of interest to contributors. Continue reading
The Fedora Project is looking for project mentors in the next round of Outreachy. For those who aren’t familiar, Outreachy is a paid internship inspired by Google Summer of Code for people underrepresented in tech. Interns work remotely with mentors on projects ranging from programming, user experience, documentation, illustration and graphical design, to data science.
Every idea or project needs one or two responsible mentors to teach and help the intern. Please note that Outreachy applicants are expected to make a first contribution to the project they are applying for so mentors need to have proper tasks defined for applicants to work on. Mentors should be able to commit at least 5 hours a week on most weeks from the beginning of the six-week application period (around mid September) through the end of the three-month internship (Mid March). You should have a real interest in their success and be engaged and excited about the project.
