Fedora 18 Approves Controversial Feature

At the FESCo meeting on Monday, aside from Fedora reaffirmining their commitment towards the GCC compiler, the FESCo members also approved some new features for Fedora 18. One of the approved features has already sparked the grievance of Lennart Poettering.

The newly-approved features for the Spherical Cow include:

- Migration to procps-ng as the next-generation procps solution compared to their existing legacy procps legacy code that really hasn't been maintained upstream. Lennart Poettering is already countering this proposal and calling procps-ng a mistake on the mailing list in response to the feature being approved. From Lennart, "[The procps-ng package] should not be deemed a feature for Linux but a failure of Linux. I'd really like to see FESCO strongly ask the people behind procps-ng to help working in the integration of its tools into util-linux, to make the basic set of tools more nicely integrated rather than continue to grow apart! There's really no point in just rubberstamping everything people suggest. FESCO should push people in the right direction, and push them towards collaboration. FESCO, please steer fedora (and Linux) in the right direction here, that's your job!" A discussion has ensued.

- OpenShift Origin will be part of Fedora 18.

- A new installer UI. This goal is to basically overhaul Red Hat's Anaconda installer to make it more modern.

The FESCo meeting notes are available on the mailing list with IRC logs also being available.

Other early Fedora 18 features and notes are listed here.
