Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields
The silver lining.

The silver lining.

The obvious.

Obviously many of you know now how I spent my last week, since it wasn’t blogging. ? It’s been said many times already, and can’t be overstated, that our Fedora Infrastructure team has proved their mettle by basically razing and rebuilding the skeleton of our project over the course of a week or so. I also want to take a moment to recognize the folks in Red Hat’s IT Security with whom we’re collaborating as well — exceptional folks whose best work naturally results in absolutely no notice whatsoever. Thanks guys, you rock.

Something cool.

This looks fascinating and exciting to me — collaboration across tools and systems using D-Bus and telepathy. It would be nice to see some sort of XML “exploder/imploder” that would allow documents to benefit from this approach too. (I’ve often wondered why, with the open formats we champion, that hasn’t been done yet.) But hey, even text files would be a big step forward. Good luck with this Alban, it looks like a superb idea and long overdue.


Wednesday I’ll be traveling to Utah for UTOSC, to which I’m really looking forward. I’m sure my family feels like I’ve basically been away as it is, but some travel is probably just what I need to get back on the larger track of the Fedora Project and out of the crisis response mode.


In the midst of everything else, I found out my mom has to have some neck surgery next week — on Wednesday of course, while I’ll be on a plane to Utah — and our dog apparently is suffering from a gastrointestinal flu. So that should give you an idea of why I basically took the weekend off from the computer other than this, and some email triage. We soldier on!

    Paul, I wish you and your family all the best for the coming few weeks! Can’t imagine how stressful last week was, and then to have so much come up for this week too…

    Thanks for all the effort you put in, and I hope all goes well for you.
