    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).

      . As it stands, Fedora 18 usage numbers are more-or-less in-line with Fedora 17.

      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

              well, if you have the power to alter the outcome, then it would be pretty stupid of me to take the bet...



              On a serious note, this is what I would do if I was in charge:


              delay the alpha for one more week so it would ship with 3.10rc1 already

                  That is not how it works. Adam has no veto over the release process. Releases can be done only when they meet the published release criteria and all blocker bugs has been fixed.

                  https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedor...lease_Criteria

                  QA team on the whole has some leeway when considering bugs that are borderline but no single individual can rush the process.

                      f19 is going to be another fail like f18... I bet 20e that the alpha will be delayed again in a weeks time
