Summertime…

It's now summer for the Northern hemisphere and with that comes the slow season for a lot of things. There are a number of conferences that get a lot of people involved (GUADEC and OLS) although I'm not really going to any this year. There are the many vacations taken by people to take advantage of the good weather. And there's just a general movement to spend some doing things outside instead of sitting in front of a computer for hours at a time.

But, Fedora Core 6 test1 is out. So drop all of that and have fun testing 🙂 Unfortunately, it's a little rougher around the edges than I might have liked, but so it goes. It's in pretty good shape and a lot of new stuff has landed. There's quite a bit still to come for test2, but we're making good progress. And in some weird twist of fate, I think that CD installs are actually going to be _more_ reliable than network installs for a change. Mostly because we've completely switched out the networking code underneath anaconda — while it's good to finally get rid of pump, switching to sit on top of the same bits as are used by the rest of the distro is involving some new fun that weren't entirely expected.
