Accessing/Logging into the pkgdb

Hi,

for unknown reasons, I can't login to the pkgdb anymore.

What am I supposed to do? There is no "request reset password" button 
nor other helpful information available on the login screen.

Abotu setting 'PermitRootLogin=no' in sshd_config

    Hello,

Sshd(8) daemon by default allows remote users to login as root.

  1. Is that really necessary?
  2. Lot of users use their systems as root, without even creating a non-root user.
     Such practices need to be discouraged, not allowing remote root login could be
     useful in that.

Does it make sense to disable remote root login by default? If so, do we need to just report it to the
maintainer or it would be treated as a feature?

Abandoning boinc-client

Hi all,
despite my efforts and many wasted hours I'm unable to build recent 
versions of boinc-client (I'm stuck with errors about gtk-2.0 and 
gtk-3.0 co-existence).
I'm only a co-maintainer, but the primary maintainer has abandoned the 
package to its fate long time ago (but he never orphaned it) and there 
are a lot of bugs that he never cared about. So, despite the fact that 
the package will not be orphaned, it will be de facto when I will 
abandon it.

It would be nice if someone more skilled can take some care to it. Apart 
from problems due to gtk-3.0, I think the way boinc-client works should 
be rethought: the daemon mode leads to many problems accessing GPU 
computing capabilities and detection of user activity in X. In my 
opinion boinc should be started by user and not by a system process and 
it must run project files into user home directory to allow more users 
on the same workstation.

Today I've made the last changes to clean up some stuff. I hope someone 
other has interest to take care of it.
Thank you

Mattia

Announcing the release of Fedora 21 Beta for ARM aarch64!

The Fedora 21 beta release for the ARM aarch64 platform is here, and - as usual
- is packed with amazing improvements to Fedora, as well as fantastic free and
open source software, gently harvested for your enjoyment. No bits were harmed
in the making of this beta.

What is the Beta Release?
=========================

The beta release is the last important milestone before the
release of Fedora 21. A Beta release is code-complete and bears a
very strong resemblance to the third and final release. Only
critical bug fixes will be pushed as updates up to the general
release of Fedora 21. The final release of Fedora 21 is
[https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/21/Schedule] expected in
early December. Meanwhile, download the beta of Fedora 21 and
help us make it even better:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/How_to_file_a_bug_report

Every bug you uncover is a chance to improve the experience for
millions of Fedora users worldwide. Together, we can make Fedora 21
a rock-solid distribution. We have a culture of coordinating new
features and pushing fixes upstream as much as feasible and your
feedback will help improve not only Fedora but Linux and free
software on the whole.

remove git-bzr from rawhide?

Hi folks,
I think about removal of git-bzr package in rawhide, which is actualy 
non-functional - contains only file with warning message
about replacement by git-remote-bzr package - which actualy replace 
git-bzr in f21 too. Are you OK with it? I didn't remove any
package earlier, but after short discussion I want to remove it from 
specfile of git only and add Provides/Obsoletes
into the git-remote-bzr. Is there anything else what should I do? Or do 
you think someone that should be still kept?

And probably Obsoletes/Provides could be set in f21 too - 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1164212.
Disagree anyone with it?

Thanks
Petr

[Test-Announce] Fedora Atomic Test Day

Greetings, all!

Tomorrow (or today for those of you not in North America) will be the first
Atomic Testday! The Fedora Atomic host is a new image designed to securely and
easily run Docker containers - all based on Project Atomic [0]. Because it's
new ground, testing is required for a successful release.

The Atomic image utilizes rpm-ostree [1] to allow you to update and revert your
installed package set just like a Git repo. This allows for easy upgrades and
an easy method of reverting back to a known good state should something go
wrong after an update.

Come join us for a day of testing and exploration into all Atomic offers for
running your containerized applications. Information on the testday can be
found on the Wiki [2] or drop by the #fedora-test-day channel on Freenode if
you have any questions.

See you tomorrow (or later today)!
