      That's understandable. It surprises me though no one has volunteered.

And I doubt f19 will get continually delayed like 18 was, since they aren't doing anything crazy like re-writing the installer with this release.
      A feasible release date for stable Fedora 19 is July 15th. That's 92 days out. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i...o+july+15+2013

        Ummm.... ?

        Per original comment: What would you prefer broken OS released on time or working OS* released a couple of weeks (...) after the original release schedule?

        * Actually, at least in my case (on 20+ machines), once you actually install it, F18 is quite stable. Granted, getting it installed was, err, interesting.

            to me fedora 18 was a broken OS released a couple of MONTHS after the original release schedule.

            I can name 5 people that switched distros because of f18... that's how bad it was, but alas I will run the alpha just to see how it stands but their management is quickly making this distro become irrelevant.

            f19 released in 3 months... ahahhahaha

            expect f19 released in late set. best case scenario

            my money is on a oct/nov release

                      Given the nature of Fedora (bleeding edge distro), breakage is to be expected, so are delayed schedules.
                      If you can't stand the occasional breakage or delayed schedules, don't use a bleeding edge distro. God knows there are many to choose from.

                      Beyond that, "their management"? You do understand that this is a community project, right?
                      *You* as well as *I*, get to vote for the people who manage Fedora.
                      As for "irreverent", well, we'll see about that. As it stands, Fedora 18 usage numbers are more-or-less in-line with Fedora 17.

                        Not that surprising really. Compared to the number of people who express interest in it, very few people actually step up to do something about it. While the number of contributors keeps increasing in Fedora, it is never really "enough" since we keep expanding the scope of the project. If you want to contribute, I would be happy to guide you. Drop me a email (Google it up).

                          ... wait... so you are willing to bet money that f19 will be released in 90 days time? as scheduled?

                          eh eh eh

                          gnome 3.8 will be 4 months old when f19 gets released (if it's on schedule, that is)... so much for bleeding edge

                          if by 'community' you mean a multi billion dollar corporation whose hat is red... yes.


                          I was using f17, several things drove me away from f18

                          anaconda

                          gnome 3.6 (and the fact it breaks all themes/ext again)

                          firewalld

                            Wow! One component out of 1000+ will be 4 month old when F19 is released. The horror.

                            I don't use GNOME (KDE and XFCE), I have my own firewall scripts so I disabled firewalld and I managed to circumvent the broken Anaconda partition manager.
                            To each his own, I guess.

                            BTW, given the fact that I'm old enough to actually have used RedHat Linux when Anaconda was developed (6.x?) I have no doubt that in in a year's time all the Anaconda issues will be long gone.

                              Nope, you said "my money is on a oct/nov release", I bet it'll be way earlier than that.

                              We can split the difference, if you like. Current official date is July 2. You say "October". That's three months difference. So let's take a month and a half, and call the date August 15. Release on or before August 15, I win. Release after August 15, you win. 100 euro. Deal?

                              In case you're not aware, I do have some level of influence over when Fedora releases happen, so you're betting against an insider here :P

                                I don't have much to offer. Merely my language skills and effective sharing what I, as a Fedora n00b, have learned. This is why I engaged with AskFedora team, with the aim to improve it's quality by preventing trash posting rather than trash posting moderation. Kind of embarassing to say, I failed to present my draft I promised 3 weeks ago. I only drop in to moderate individual posts at AF from time to time. Thanks for the offer though. I'll keep this in mind.

                                BTW, I'm good at advocating certain projects but without fanboyism. To put it other way - a project has to deserve my advocacy By all means Fedora deserves it. Well, maybe except that issue with the Gnome 3.8
