As I’ve blogged about before, in the past few months I’ve been working a lot on Fedora Community with John Palmieri, Luke Macken, and Spot Callaway. Fedora Community currently focuses on making all you Fedora package maintainers out there even more super awesome (hard to do considering where we’re starting from :) ) and later on we’re hoping to add some apps and workflows to support the wider Fedora contributor community as well.
Well, dude, it’s out, RIGHT NOW. Why are you still reading this blog post? Come on. Get over there right now and start being more awesome.
Wow, you made it this far down the blog post. Okay. Hmm. I’ll have to entice you with a little more information maybe. For some reason making it as easy as clicking on this link is still not convincing you. “What is this Fedora Community thing anyway?” you ask yourself. “Why would I ever want to use this thing?”
Welp, good thing you asked, and good thing we prepared for this! Check out our two-part podcast with Luke and John to hear all about what Fedora Community is, why you would want to use it, how it will make you awesomer as a package maintainer (and even how you might find it useful if you aren’t a package maintainer), how it works under the hood, and more:
Wow, still here reading the blog, eh? Hmm. Maybe you’re more into the visual than the aural. All right. So we’ve also got this awesome tour that walks you through a sampling of screenshots from Fedora Community and explains each. Also, it has a cool picture of Mike McGrath and you’re just going to have to click on over if you wanna see! (Besides don’t you want to be as cool as Kyle?:
If you are still reading this, and you are still not convinced you really want to just go on ahead and check out Fedora Community, well, there is not much I can do except remind you how much of a super hero Jesse is. I mean, come on, man. Don’t you want to be just like Jesse? Go on and give it a try.
P.S. John and Luke are also super heroes and have been a pleasure to work with on this project. They’ve structured Fedora Community such that it’s easy for other folks to come in and develop apps on top of it quickly and easily and they are great folks to work with to boot. So, if you’re interested in whipping together a Fedora Community app you’ve no excuse not to. :) Go on and get started at fedoracommunity.fedorahosted.org.
P.P.S. mad props to jbowes who totally coined the term ‘paintain’ – I love it!
