Fedora Holds Summit To Map Its Future 92

lisah writes "Last month members of the Fedora community met for a three-day summit (wiki here) designed to chart a course for future version releases as well as to plan other Fedora projects. Team members say they want to leverage the enthusiasm of a community that has demonstrated a willingness to develop Fedora Extras (add-on features to the Core package) and support Fedora Legacy (past releases). Red Hat's community development manager, Greg DeKoenigsberg, said, 'Community contributors have proven conclusively over the past 18 months that they can build packages every bit as well as Red Hat engineers — better, in some cases.' In addition to creating several proposals that will be introduced the the community for input and feedback, the summit also gave rise to the newly-created position of Fedora Infrastructure Leader."

    Makes sense that they plan their future. Pre-arranged funerals can ease the burdon on the survivors.

    Oh wait, this isn't about BSD?

    Also, with open source software, the line between developers and users is very thin.

    Not really. The developers are the guys who write the code, and the users are the ones who bitch about it. Same as any other piece of software.

    REG:
            They've bled us white, the bastards. They've taken everything we had, and not just from us, from our fathers, and from our fathers' fathers.
    LORETTA:
            And from our fathers' fathers' fathers.
    REG:
            Yeah.
    LORETTA:
            And from our fathers' fathers' fathers' fathers.
    REG:
            Yeah. All right, Stan. Don't labour the point. And what have they ever given us in return?!
    XERXES:
            The aqueduct?
    REG:
            What?
    XERXES:
            The aqueduct.
    REG:
            Oh. Yeah, yeah. They did give us that. Uh, that's true. Yeah.
    COMMANDO #3:
            And the sanitation.
    LORETTA:
            Oh, yeah, the sanitation, Reg. Remember what the city used to be like?
    REG:
            Yeah. All right. I'll grant you the aqueduct and the sanitation are two things that the Romans have done.
    MATTHIAS:
            And the roads.
    REG:
            Well, yeah. Obviously the roads. I mean, the roads go without saying, don't they? But apart from the sanitation, the aqueduct, and the roads--
    COMMANDO:
            Irrigation.
    XERXES:
            Medicine.
    COMMANDOS:
            Huh? Heh? Huh...
    COMMANDO #2:
            Education.
    COMMANDOS:
            Ohh...
    REG:
            Yeah, yeah. All right. Fair enough.
    COMMANDO #1:
            And the wine.
    COMMANDOS:
            Oh, yes. Yeah...
    FRANCIS:
            Yeah. Yeah, that's something we'd really miss, Reg, if the Romans left. Huh.
    COMMANDO:
            Public baths.
    LORETTA:
            And it's safe to walk in the streets at night now, Reg.
    FRANCIS:
            Yeah, they certainly know how to keep order. Let's face it. They're the only ones who could in a place like this.
    COMMANDOS:
            Hehh, heh. Heh heh heh heh heh heh heh.
    REG:
            All right, but apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, a fresh water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?
    XERXES:
            Brought peace.
    REG:
            Oh. Peace? Shut up!
