26.50 USD, fedora-medical tracking bug, package reviews, and FUDCon.

1 02 2011

Day 2 at FUDCon turned out to be a productive day. I decided to go shopping for some hands which can help me with the medical spin. The lightning talk went well and was well received. As I mentioned, the main problem with this project right now is packaging and package reviews.

Someone (probably Smooge) pointed out that Tibbs has promised to do ten reviews in exchange for a t-shirt. Instantly, 26.50 USD were collected for medical spin and the t-shirt. Ian, who was administering the talks looked very confused with all the money in his hand. ๐Ÿ˜‰
Christoph added a tracking bug for fedora medical in bugzilla, which will be very helpful.

After the talk, I sat down with Christoph reviewing packages and learning tidbits of packaging. Adamwill and Tim joined us. It was an afternoon well spent. It took a long time to review things, but I learned quite a few things.

On the QA part, Adamwilll pointed out that Robatino produces the deltas for (N-1) Final -> N Final, so one need not download the whole ISO again and again, which is not easy in most of the places. This is something I was thinking for a long time, and I am happy now.

In the evening, Herlo gave me lots of Fedora Media and Case Badges, which will be very useful.

It’s a pity that I had to come back to Fort Collins today and could not attend the hackfest, but it was very nice to meet old friends and meeting all the people I have talked over IRC. Hope we will meet again.

A big thanks to FUDCon organisers, who did a fabulous job.

Lastly, I took quite a few pictures, which I shall sort and upload by tomorrow.

So it’s time. I am landing on the second day, but that should not be a problem.

I am looking forward to meeting old and new friends, get some works done and have a few brainstorming sessions.

We are having “Fedora Project of the day” on 2nd Dec, so if you are around, join us.

See you and meet you there. ๐Ÿ™‚

Periodic updates will follow.

(I am) Running for FAmSCo Election.

21 11 2008

Nominated and encouraged ๐Ÿ™‚ by Sankarshan da, I decided to run for Ambassadors steering committee Election in this December.

At first I was apprehensive whetherย  I would be able to do justice to the job, but it seemed to be a challenge worth taking up.

So here goes my nomination and agenda.

Looks like I am the only one from India and APAC (Asia Pacific) running for it.

Today I have a talk on Fedora.

29 08 2008

Today, a couple of hours later(~11 IST), I have a talk at a local engineering college.

Sadly, I am not being able to motivate myself enough to attend it the right way.

First reason is I had a bad sleep.

Second reason is, non availability of resources from part of Fedora Project.

I always hear about abundance of media (CD/DVD). In my case, though I requested it a couple of months back, it failed to turn up.

Well, I do understand that it may be due to some unavoidable reason, may be delay on the manufacturer’s part or may be something else, but… a promise is always a promise and all I know is I could not keep my promise to the event organisers.

I am not at all easy with that.

A Event, Kolkata, India

25 08 2008

We have a linux event, TechTrix’08 here at Kolkata.

Its on 29th Aug, at a local Engineering college.

Its a short event, so the talks are restricted to three.

One is by Sayamindu(OLPC). One by Me(Fedora) and one by Indranil DasGupta(L2C2/ilug-cal).

I am yet to receive the CD/DVD for it, but that is being taken care of and hope to receive before event.

Will update again after the event.

Mirror stats and openoffice .
