Another Wednesday brings another Fedora Engineering and Steering Committee meeting where new features for Fedora 21 were approved.

At this week's FESCo meeting, there was continued discussions about converting cron jobs to systemd time units, the remote systemd journal feature is still being figured out, and BerkeleyDB 6 was approved for packaging.

BerkeleyDB is already present within the Fedora package archive but with the version 6 release they changed the license from Sleepycat to AGPLv3+. As a result, Fedora is keeping the older version of BerkeleyDB while also packaging BerkeleyDB 6 separately for anyone not interested in the newer version of the database software due to the license change.

More details on this week's Fedora FESCo meeting can be found via the summary and minutes. Overall, Fedora 21 is shaping up for a great release with many new features and is set to debut around October/November of this year.
