So, advogato has been down for a while, so I haven't been able to blog. Grr.

So, pushed a LOT of packages out via Fedora Legacy. Cleaned up most of what is in updates-testing, and tried to touch on every bug in bugzilla. Managed to close a few. Did some package building tonight, and pushed them up for QA. Things should start rolling good now that I finished up some work that was sucking all my time.

So I'll be making a trip to Red Hat at the end of next week. I hope to meet a lot of the people I've been talking with online for the last couple years.

Gave an OS X presentation to my local LUG this past weekend. It went pretty well. Theme of the presentation was "Unix + Eye Candy". Most people seemed pretty impressed with Expose and Finder's spring loaded folders.

Sent mail to Fedora Legacy list about dropping 7.2/8.0 from officially supported releases. This will help streamline our updates with minimal user impact. Read the message (and resulting replies) here.

Fedora Core 2 is officially out now, thats major kick butt. I'm busy at work getting FC2 officially supported on our product line so that we can do pre-installs. Things are looking good, except for our p4 workstation, which is based on an Asus P4P800. FC2 is known to not work with this motherboard, but no solution is known yet. Bummer. Loving the +2TB support. Now we can fully populate some of our servers, and aggregate some servers together for even larger storage. Wheee!

Oh, and spot's blog entry has got to be one of the funniest things I've read in a while. Way way funny.
