Stop wasting time and money, make the Fedora 18 release name “Fedora 18”

Calling all Fedora users and developers. Please visit the official poll to choose the future of Fedora release names.

Nobody refers to “Running Fedora Verne” and choosing the name every few months is just a giant waste of time and waste of a very busy legal team that has to review and research each stupid name. I think “Beefy Miracle” is a ridiculous name that really takes the edge off an otherwise most professional release.

Just have the next release name asĀ Fedora 18 and be done with the nonsense names once and for all.

colord-kde 0.2

Daniel released colord-kde 0.2 today. I’m really excited about the amount of progress he’s made in such a short amount of time. He’s has had a bit of rough ride with the loss of his daughter last year and this year he’s been hacking on colord-kde and PackageKit and trying to make open source a better place. If you’ve got a spare couple of dollars this month, he’d really appreciate a donation to buy hardware to test things on.

I was a strapped-for-cash geek myself a few years ago, and I know how hard it was to develop software when you don’t have the right hardware. I donated $25. Donate here. Thanks.
