Fedora Updates resume… “This time I really mean it!”

by admin ·

Fedora Updates are finally up again. Jesse Keating posted earlier today that updates would be working again today, and I could almost hear in his voice, “Guys, this time I really mean it!”.

Fedora Updates return to service?

by admin ·

According to Jesse Keating, a Release Engineer for Fedora Project, Fedora Updates should resume sometime today. You can read the full message here, or on the fedora-announce-list.This is great news and good work by the Fedora team. I would imagine the servers will be a little slow today once everything is up and on-line.

Again, great work Fedora team.

Fedora 10 delayed… again.

by admin ·

Per J. Keating on fedora-announce-list, Fedora 10 will be further delayed. The new release date is now set at 25 November.

This wasn’t unexpected given the infrastructure problem of the past few weeks. The infrastructure problem created huge impact on development of Fedora 9, bringing work to a halt for at least a month, as shown in the lack of updates (security and regular) since the update servers returned to service. This announcement shows the infrastructure problem is having a major impact on Fedora 10 as well. To what extent only time will tell.
