|Subject:||Fedora 17 for Power Alpha Announcement|
|Date:||Tue, 10 Apr 2012 15:51:42 -0400|
Time flies like the wind... As it's already time again for another Fedora release on Power, this time for Fedora 17 Alpha. We've hit a couple of bumps along the road to the Alpha, but at long last we're finally at a state where we're ready to release it to the public. Due to lack of developer time and hardware, Apple hardware support is at this point completely untested. Especially with the switch to grub2 we rely on community feedback and participation to make this work for this release. So if you have the hardware and want it to work, patches welcome! :) The bits are available from your closest mirror: https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist/Fedora/17-Al... More details about this Alpha release can be found here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_17_Alpha_PPC_releas... One of our focuses in the lead up to the beta of Fedora 17 for Power will be addressing architecture-specific packaging issues in as many packages as possible. If you own a package in Fedora which has ExclusiveArch or ExcludeArch set, please take a moment to verify that the architectures you've excluded or are exclusive to are still correct and sane. I want to thank everyone involved in making this happen once more. Many Fedora packagers and contributors have again stepped up and helped fix issues that only appeared on Power hardware. Moreover the whole Fedora Secondary Arch team has been doing a fantastic job to get us to where we are now, especially considering that we had a complete switch of builders and hub hardware, mass rebuild and a hub failure along the way! As usual, you can reach the whole team on the #fedora-ppc IRC channel on FreeNode and via our email list: https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/ppc And we have our Secondary Arch wiki with (decently) updated information: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Architectures/PowerPC For Phil, Karsten, and the entire Fedora for Power team, Thanks & regards, David -- David Aquilina Release Engineer Red Hat, Inc. _______________________________________________ devel-announce mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://admin.fedoraproject.org/mailman/listinfo/devel-an...
