Flock 2016 is here!

Hello all,

The Fedora Project is pleased to announce the 2016 Flock conference, 
coming August 2-5, 2016 in Krakow, Poland. At Flock, Fedora contributors 
gather to promote and discuss ideas to improve our distro, community, 
and userbase, and promote our core values: Freedom, Friends, Features, 
First. The announcement was originally made on the Fedora Magazine.

     https://fedoramagazine.org/flock-2016-krakow-poland/

Registration for attendance and talk submission is also open. You can 
register for Flock 2016 on flocktofedora.org. The site also contains 
more information about Flock in general and will be updated as more 
information is made available.

     https://flocktofedora.org/

== What Flock is like ==

Flock operates somewhat like a traditional conference. We have a call 
for papers (CFP) in which participants submit talks for acceptance. This 
differs from our previous, Barcamp-style FUDCon events. This arrangement 
has worked exceptionally well for the past three years. This year 
promises to be one of the best Fedora conferences yet.
The Flock 2016 conference will feature four full days of talks, 
workshops, hackfests, and sprints. Your submission is encouraged, since 
we want to fill the schedule with good content. And of course there will 
be opportunities to interact with other contributors throughout the 
conference.

Fedora community SIP and WebRTC trial at FedRTC.org


We've been trialling a SIP and WebRTC service at https://FedRTC.org for about a year now.

Anybody with a Fedora OpenID can request a matching SIP address in the service.  For example:

Fedora user ID: pocock <at> fedoraproject.org
FedRTC SIP address: pocock <at> fedrtc.org

The service is completely built using RHEL7/CentOS7/EPEL7 packages.

Users have been able to successfully connect to the service using:
 - WebRTC from Firefox and Chrome on just about any OS, including mobile
 - softphones packaged in Fedora (GNOME Empathy, Ekiga and many others)
 - mobile SIP apps such as Lumicall[1]

A key benefit of the service is that it federates with other communities such as the Debian SIP service[2]. 
People without a Fedora user ID can make calls to your SIP address using https://FreePhoneBox.net

I would encourage anybody who hasn't tried the service already to do so.  Please give feedback through the
mailing lists for any specific softphone you try or the Free-RTC mailing list:
https://lists.fsfe.org/mailman/listinfo/free-rtc

Fedora 23 for z Systems (aka s390x) is here

Fedora 23 for z Systems (aka s390x) released
============================================

It's (approximately) Halloween, so you know what that means — new
Fedora! The Fedora 23 release is here, and it's better than ever
before. We're pleased to bring you the latest incarnation of one of the
main Fedora editions on z Systems — Fedora Server, built with love by
the Fedora community to custom-fit your needs mainly in the service
deployment area.

If that's all you need to hear, download from
https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora-secondary/releases/23/
or if you already use Fedora, follow the simple upgrade steps at
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Upgrading.

Otherwise, read on for details.

Fedora Server
------------

Fedora Server makes service management simple with RoleKit, a
programmatic interface for quick deployment, and Cockpit, a remote web
GUI. Now in Fedora Server 23, you can manage Kubernetes clusters from
the Cockpit Admin Console, or launch a FreeIPA domain controller from a
kickstart file. Get Fedora Server this morning and have an identity
management solution in place by lunchtime.

Migration of the mailing-lists to Mailman3 and HyperKitty

Dear list users,

The Fedora Engineering team has been working on a new system for our
mailing lists. Mailman 3 came out earlier this year and it has a new
shiny web UI: HyperKitty.

The Fedora Hosted lists will be migrated on November 16th, and the
Fedora project lists later in the week. After migration you should be
able to use the new hyperkitty UI to post and read the lists if you
choose or continue to get emails in the traditional way.

There may be some changes in some headers, so if you filter your list
emails be ready to adjust your filters. See wiki page below for
details:

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailman3_Migration

Some lists using mailman2 features not yet available in mailman3 will
be migrated later. More information as well as current lists migrated,
being migrated and deferred for migration can be found at:

  http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Mailman3_Migration/Status

If you have any questions, feel free to ask on the infrastructure
list: infrastructure <at> lists.fedoraproject.org.

If you find a problem or issue, please file a fedora infrastructure
ticket and we will work to fix things for your case or bug:
https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/
