fedora planet – edited

February 11, 2011

Hi folks,

Andrea Veri (averi) came up the idea of having a planet instance that is fairly strictly controlled as to what content gets posted. More or less only fedora-relevant posts.

He wrote up guidelines and a wiki page ,etc.

    I’m very careful that the stuff I post in planet fedora is only fedora related, but I must confess that I like people posting stuff about their lives and not-strictly-fedora but open source.

    So, if planet fedora >> planet fedora edited, I don’t know if it’s going to be successful.

  2. skvidal Says:

    nothing is being replaced – it is a subplanet path with only fedora content.

    some people do not want to hear about people’s lives and that’s what this allows.

    The wiki page has no link to the actual place of the planet, might be nice to add 🙂

  5. Andrea Veri Says:


    actually planet-fedora is not the same as edited. Edited will focus on Fedora-related content while planet fedora will cover a wider area like it does now.


    link added, thanks for the suggestion.

    I +1 this decision, as long as it is a sub-planet. Also, @seth your site is really hard to read :-/

  7. skvidal Says:

    kad it is?

    maybe ctrl-+ in your browser to bump your fonts?

    • kad Says:

      yah I ended up doing that, maybe is just the combination of font family + font size that plays tricks with my eyes 🙂

        probably that’s because you (like me right now) have an hi-res display …

        I can clearly remember this Simpla theme working charmfully with my older machines (even with a 1400×1050 laptop display)

  8. kOoLiNuS Says:

    as for “Just Fedora” I don’t really know how a planet feed works, but if it where a simple blog the annoied reader could just pick up the Fedora category feed.

    I mean, the “noise” introduced by having ALL the spoken languages in the world is much more than the ‘occasional’ pizza or Debian post here and there.
