Red Hat News begins
a series of blog posts
leading up to the launch of Fedora 12. This one
details how code makes it from the community and Fedora into Red Hat's
commercial products including Red Hat Enterprise Linux. "There are many features that started in Fedora and are now included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. PackageKit and PolicyKit are two prime examples. PackageKit is a system designed to make installing and updating software easier, through a set of easy-to-use command-line and graphical utilities. It also integrates software management with desktop activities like clicking on packages or entering commands in a terminal. PolicyKit is a toolkit for defining and handling the rules by which unprivileged processes can speak to privileged processes. It also provides a framework for centralizing these access policies for use in managed environments.
